Generally all home improvements you make directly increase the resale value of your house. Whether it's a new bathroom, new kitchen or new roof, you will get back a portion of your investment when you sell your home.

When people decide to improve their home for sale, landscaping is typically at the bottom of the “to-do” list. Considering prospective buyers typically decide to see the inside based on the outside, you should consider moving landscaping up on your list. Keep in mind, yard improvements provide some of the best returns on investment when the house is sold.

While shrubs and bushes look great, hardscapes can give you more useable outside space. A patio or walkway can add a new dimension to your existing landscape. When planning a new project or upgrading an existing landscape hardscapes should be added to almost every design. Professional landscaping can increase the value of your home by 15%. To a buyer, a great yard could be the deciding factor between your house and somebody else.
