Why Your Yard Needs Custom Landscaping

  • Post category:Blog

Owning your own home is a big investment, probably one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make in your life. So it makes sense that you’d want to do everything you can to protect that investment and make sure it’s worth as much as possible, right?

One way you can increase your home value is to consider installing custom landscaping at your home. There are many other benefits to adding custom landscaping to your property in Morehead City, Newport, Atlantic Beach, and surrounding North Carolina areas.

Custom Landscaping Complements Your Home

When we design and install custom landscaping at Wood Lawn & Landscaping, we create a design that beautifully complements the architecture and decor of your home. This landscaping will also be made up of plants that are known to survive well in our climate.

We back our plants up with a warranty too, so you know we believe in the ones we choose. Our plants come with a one-year warranty if you decide to also install irrigation and a two-year warranty when you sign a maintenance contract with us.

Adding in Custom Landscaping Increases Your Home Value

The outside of your home is the first thing that visitors will see. It’s important to make a good impression right off the bat. If your yard doesn’t look great and healthy, then they may not have a good impression of your home. This is especially important to consider if you are thinking about putting your house on the market. A nice landscape can give potential buyers an additional reason to consider buying the house.

Also, it overall increases your curb appeal and home value. According to Turf Magazine, home value could increase by about 10-12 percent with new and improved landscaping.

How Our Landscape Design Process Works

Our first step in the landscape design process is to meet with the homeowner and consult with them about their landscaping needs. If you’re looking for a more rustic feel, then we can design around that. If you desire a more modern look, then we can choose plants and materials that will center on that.

We then create a 2D CAD design of your landscaping with ProLandscape, a software that allows us to bring your vision to life. After you approve the design, we begin installing the landscape that you chose.

Along with native plant installation, we will sculpt your beds, lay down mulch or rock, and we can also design an irrigation system for your landscaping. We can also do landscape bed renovations.

We offer many different perennials for your landscaping, including azaleas and roses, as well as Crepe Myrtle trees.
