If you’re looking to boost the value of your property, landscaping is an excellent place to start. The American Society of Landscape Architects suggests you invest 10 percent of your home’s value in landscaping. You’re likely to get a good return on your investment because landscaping improvements can increase your home’s price from 6% to 13%. We’ve got six of the biggest landscaping trends that will add value to your home.

Outdoor Living Space

Outdoor living areas are perfect in warm climates such as Jacksonville. They expand the usable square footage of your home by giving you and your family extra space to gather and entertain. Backyards also very popular with homebuyers as the indoor-outdoor living trend continues to grow. One of the hottest trends right now is terrace extensions. 


These are family rooms inside the house that lead to an outside terrace. They feature complementary building materials, blending the indoors with the outdoors.

Decks and patios also increase living space and can boost your home’s value. You don’t need to start from scratch. You’ll save money if you repair your existing deck or patio. Additions, including new cushions for your patio furniture or decorative plant containers, can spruce up the area without costing much.

If you’re ready to spend big money, an outdoor kitchen is a good choice. This is a huge trend in upscale neighborhoods, and you’ll get a good return on your investment. Outdoor kitchens range from $10,000-$50,000 (or more). You’ll want to hire a professional to install the plumbing, electricity, and gas.



You’ll get a good return if you invest in fencing for your yard. Fences are inexpensive compared to other landscaping options and can add a decorative touch. They help with privacy and security and can be a big selling point for buyers with kids and pets. An added bonus? They can keep out intruders and your neighbors’ kids and pets.
