If you want to sell your home or invest more into your house and property, there are plenty of ways to attempt to increase your home’s value. You can improve your property’s value by increasing your home’s curb appeal with custom landscaping and added functionality with outdoor lighting.

If you live in Mt. Juliet, Lebanon, Hendersonville, and the surrounding areas of Tennessee, here are some ways to potentially help increase your home’s value.

Add to Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Custom Landscaping

When thinking about a relatively easy and quick way to add value to your home, prioritize curb appeal with landscaping. According to Forbes, adding landscaping to your home is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to increase your home’s value. Because your front yard is the first thing visitors see when they come to your home, it makes the most sense to focus on front landscaping. Adding custom landscaping such as healthy trees, blooming flowers, and neatly trimmed shrubs makes your home look prettier, much more inviting, and has the most impactful ROI.

If you opt for custom landscaping, it’s also vital to include regular lawn and landscape maintenance to maintain your property’s increase in value. Landscaping adds to your home’s curb appeal, but a poorly maintained landscape will detract from your home’s value.

Increase Your Livable Space & Functionality By Adding Hardscaping Projects

Your home’s square footage may be difficult and pricey to change, but you can increase your property’s livable space by adding custom hardscaping. Custom outdoor kitchens, fire pits/fireplaces, and decks increase your home’s livable area and can equally increase your home’s value. Adding a nice custom deck or an outdoor kitchen essentially adds a whole new room to your home just outside. Pair these additions with custom outdoor lighting, and you have a more useful and functional yard.

Outdoor lighting is a great way to increase your home’s functionality. Increased lighting means more time people can spend in these outdoor areas. If you put your house on the market, homebuyers can easily envision themselves enjoying these outdoor areas with family and friends. On average, a homeowner can recoup around 83 percent of the cost of outdoor hardscaping, and these additions can increase your home’s value by 30 percent.

Adding low-maintenance custom landscaping and energy-efficient lighting can increase your home’s value by 30 percent.

Make Your Yard Low-Maintenance & More Energy-Efficient

Custom landscaping is excellent, but a low-maintenance yard potentially increases your home’s value even more. When choosing plants for your landscaping, choose native plants that are more adapted to your area and require less maintenance. Native plants can reduce energy costs by as much as 50 percent and are a proven way to raise the value of your home and neighboring homes. A pretty landscape that requires little maintenance is much more attractive to potential buyers.

Using energy-efficient lighting around your home is a great way to add value while keeping your energy costs down. Energy-efficient LED lighting or solar-powered lighting are two great options that increase your home’s value and functionality outside and your home’s efficiency.
