A healthy lawn, bright flowers, and lush greenery nourish us from the inside, providing oxygen as well as reducing stress and improving our quality of life. When your house is on the market, all the attention you’ve put into your landscaping reaps additional benefits: More interested buyers and a better asking price.

In one survey, 94% of top agents said that great curb appeal equals money in your bank account at closing — and you don’t have to break the bank to wow buyers, either. Hardscape additions, patios, walkways, garden beds, retaining walls— recover an estimated 126% at the time of sale.
