Why hiring a landscaper may be for you Big T Garden, Gifts, Antiques, LLC. Berea Rd. | Richmond, KY | 859-661-5209 The majority of homeowners want their properties to appear as appealing as possible. While many homeowners want to be proud of their properties and come home to a welcoming home each night, the benefits to maintaining landscaping go beyond the notion that well- cared for lawns make for more comforting retreats. Because numerous variables, in- cluding landscaping, influence property values, it’s difficult to as- sess just how much the property values of homes with impressive landscapes are influenced by those very landscapes. Indeed, studies have produced varying results re- garding the effect of well-landscaped homes on property values. But what many studies have shown and what many realtors indicate is that impressive landscaping adds a significant amount to property values, with estimates suggesting landscaping increases home values by anywhere from 5 to 20 percent. Such estimates are good news for homeowners, and they also highlight the stakes involved when making landscaping decisions. Homeowners with green thumbs may embrace the challenge of re- vitalizing their lawns and gardens, but many, especially those pressed for time, can benefit greatly from working with professional landscapers. Why hire a professional landscaper? Maintaining a property requires more than just mowing the lawn every couple of weeks. Even homeowners committed to mak- ing their properties as pristine as possible can run into problems when adverse weather conditions pose a threat to lawns and gar- dens. The following are just a handful of reasons why homeowners may find working with landscaping professionals is the best thing for their properties and their bank accounts. Professionals understand the local climate. Experienced profes- sional landscapers will understand the local climate and the chal- lenges it presents to your lawn. Experience can prove invaluable as lawns battle adverse conditions that threaten its survival. While homeowners going it alone may struggle through a trial and error period as they try to address problems threatening their lawns, ex- perienced professionals are more likely to identify the problem im- mediately, providing a ready solution that can prevent potentially costly repairs down the road.
