Curb Appeal Projects to Max Out Your Home’s Value

Add or Replace a Few Design Basics
Every few years, you overhaul your closet, replacing your worn-out basics with a few new pieces to ramp up your wardrobe. Why not do the same with your yard? Give it a basic makeover so it has some good, classic, value-boosting “bones” to build upon. 

Landscape design basics like:

  • A winding flagstone walkway
  • A couple of stone planters (6 feet by 2 feet)
  • A few flowering shrubs 
  • A deciduous tree about 15 feet tall
  • Quality mulch

Add Color and Texture in the Right Places 

Experts call it “softscaping.” But basically, it’s adding plants in a designed, intentional way that makes your yard interesting to look at year-round. 

It’s a great project if your yard is already in pretty good shape with some basic design elements mentioned above. 

A typical softscaping project includes:

  • Five trees
  • 25 shrubs
  • 60 perennials
  • Natural edging
  • Boulder accents

Why you can’t go wrong: You’ll invest about $7,000, but you could recoup every cent in home value, according to the Report. Plus, here’s what the report doesn’t include: You’ll get super energy savings.
