Why do you think that people spend time and money on their landscape? Do you think it is just because they have extra cash to spend or they love to plant? While both of these are great reasons to plant a beautiful flower bed by your front walk, homeowners that know the true value of landscaping create curb appeal for many more reasons that just making their house look ‘cute.’ Autumn Hill Nursery has been landscaping homes in both Woodstock, GA and Canton, GA for many years, and we’ve seen these facts and figures in action.

Properly planned landscaping can do more than just increase the visual appeal of your home. Although, the visual aspect is essential. If the right materials are chosen and planted appropriately, it can increase the efficiency of an A/C unit by 10% and lower the home heating and cooling costs by  as much as 20%. So, not only will your landscaping help decrease your energy usage and therefore help the environment by reducing emissions, but each tree you plant can remove 26 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, in addition to also removing smoke, dust, and other airborne pollutants.

If you like to think in dollars and cents, consider this: if you are in the market to sell your home, landscaping can add as much as 14% to the resale value of a building and speed its sale by as much as 6 weeks. It doesn’t matter where you look, all of the resources agree that landscaping your home is a good idea. Even QuickenLoans suggests creating curb appeal to help the value of your home. According to their statistics, spending as little as 5% of your home’s value on landscaping may get an ROI of as much as 150%.
