Many homeowners looking to increase their property value understand the importance of curb appeal. You may be well aware that a lush lawn and beautiful shrubs and flowers add an aesthetic appeal to the outside of your home. But, there’s something you might have forgotten – hardscapes. Hardscapes are outdoor areas like the driveway, sidewalk, patios, flowerbed edging, retaining walls, and even custom options like water features and firepits. While most hardscape designs are made to look attractive, there are other benefits. Today on the blog, find out three ways hardscapes increase property value.
Erosion and land damage can destroy your property value and be expensive to repair if not addressed sooner rather than later. Plus, erosion could lead to other issues affecting your home, like water damage in your basement or crawlspace. Talk about scaring off potential home buyers! An adequately designed hardscape helps prevent erosion. It creates a space suitable for planting trees, shrubs, or other plants that help prevent erosion in the future.
Adds Useable Space
A hilly or slopped property can sometimes be unusable. Grading it might be too costly. Instead, adding hardscapes increases your useable space, which is perfect for enjoying the outdoors in East Tennessee. Adding a retaining wall or patio may create space for you to set up lawn furniture, a barbeque grill, or a firepit.
