Your Lawn and Your Home Value

Your Lawn and Your Home Value

How a Healthy Green Lawn Enhances Your Greatest Asset

Your home is your greatest asset. Whether you’re looking to sell in the near future or just planning out your home improvement investments for all the possibilities down the road, there’s one crucial piece of your home’s curb appeal that you shouldn’t ignore: your healthy green lawn! 

Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal
According to HomeLight, insights from top real estate agents reveal that improvements in your home’s curb appeal can improve your home value by 7%! This means that when it’s time to sell your home, it might be worth your time to invest in some curb appeal improvements, such as the following:

  • A fresh coat of paint or new siding
  • New garage doors, front doors, and/or windows
  • Pressure washed sidewalks, porches, and sidings
  • Staged outdoor seating areas with lawn chairs
  • Neatly maintained gardens beds, hedges, trees, and landscaping

But what’s the absolute best way to boost your home value? You guessed it! It’s your lush, healthy lawn. Here’s why.

Your Lawn’s ROI
In real estate, first impressions matter. Your nourished, healthy lawn is one of the first things a potential homebuyer will notice upon arrival at your house, and it’s a pretty good indication of the level of care and attention you’ve dedicated to maintaining your home. For a homebuyer, that can make all the difference when deciding between two prospective homes.

While there are many other ways to improve your home’s curb appeal, lawn maintenance is certainly one of the best. Here’s what the data shows. 

  • According to The Lawn Institute, a well-maintained lawn increases home values by an estimated 10-15%! 
  • In a consumer survey by The National Association of Landscape Professionals, 79% of people are reported to believe a lawn is an important feature when renting or buying a home. 
  • And according to the National Association of Realtors’ 2023 Remodeling Impact Report, standard lawn care maintenance, including mowing, fertilizing, and watering can yield a whopping 217% cost recovery!

That’s a pretty incredible return on investment for a standard lawn care program!

More than Your Resale Value
Of course, your home and yard are valuable to you in many more ways than your resale value. Your yard is where your family, friends, kids, and pets gather and play, so invest in it while there’s still time for your loved ones to reap the rewards. At Weed Man, our #1 goal is to give you an outdoor space you can enjoy. We partner with homeowners to achieve the lush, healthy lawn your home deserves through environmentally responsible lawn care services, including fertilization, aeration, and weed control.
