How does a 100% to 200% return on investment (“R.O.I”) sound to you?  Too good to be true?  Not according to a Money Magazine story on home renovations or Penn State University, Department of Landscape Architecture.  They both agree that a well done landscaping home improvement offers the best return on investment of any home improvement you can make; and that you will get a 100% to 200% return on your investment when applied to a home’s resale value.  This far surpasses the R.O.I. you could hope to gain from a kitchen remodel, bath remodel, swimming pool, or any other home improvement.  Yet homeowners rarely think of landscaping first when remodeling in hopes of commanding a higher home price.  Even if you aren’t planning to move, it’s nice to know you are adding real value to your home by installing synthetic grass — not to mention the savings from water usage and costs of maintaining real grass.  And it looks great! Fake grass harmonizes well with surrounding foliage.  Our products are very realistic and compliment nature, which gives your home great curb appeal.
A real estate appraiser or Palmdale real estate agent would tell you that landscaping contributes to a home in two ways.  First it simply adds to the total value of the property, and second is the aesthetic role landscaping plays when trying to sell a house.  It’s tough to measure how powerful a value-oriented landscape could be in the selling process.  For a prospective buyer, it is very hard to separate the house and the landscaping.  For two houses equal in all other respects, the one with better curbside appeal will sell faster.  Though it’s difficult to define what makes a landscape pleasing, it’s obvious to everyone when something’s not.  An ugly lawn speaks to the type of owner and how the entire house is cared for.  A beautiful lawn can increase the perceived square footage of a home because this is seen as really useable area.
