WHY lawn care is the CHEAPEST way to ADD VALUE to your pocketbook and your property

Are you like most people that spend thousands of dollars each year back into your home for repairs, maintenance, or an upgrade just to add value? And we are always hopeful that one day these very investments will finally pay off. This little advice may be very helpful to someone.

Curb appeal is one of the easiest and most economical ways to add value right back to your home. Let’s face it. People buy or award value to things they want and they can see, not necessarily things that they need or just hear about. I think we can all agree that first impressions go a long way and appearance is often times important.  A nice lawn and landscape can add up to 20% of your property’s value as it did for my wife and I back in 2014 when we sold our home. This is not the only reason why you should invest money in your curb appeal, but also make sure it is something you will enjoy.  Not only will a properly maintained lawn and landscape add value to your property but also, in a typical year, reduce your maintenance 15% to 20%. These are considered direct savings that can be banked for other consumer purchases.

Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or hire a professional company, it is not just “blowing money” when investing back into your property’s appearance and maintenance. Our Pre-Emergent/Post-Emergent applications prevent weed germination and also control weeds that are up and active. This time of year weeds are often times growing much faster than our warm season grass or desired turf.  So, as homeowners, we have to change the oil in the mowers, sharpen our blades, and fuel up just to get out there and mow those unneeded weeds. Throughout the growing season there are other options through our plant growth regulators that promote plants to grow low to the ground as opposed to more of an upright growing pattern.  Therefore, it is not only adding greatly to the maintenance of your property, it also gives your lawn a well-maintained appearance that, let’s face it, makes us feel good.

A properly designed and implemented lawn care strategy can save you time and money. At 4-Evergreen, our professional staff will be happy to assist you with a scheduled FREE 10 Minute Consultation or a FREE LAWN EVALUATION.  If you have any more questions feel free to call our office.
