The visual appeal of trees and also landscape lighting is unmistakable—both attract buyers. Research has shown that planting large trees can increase property values anywhere from 3% to 15%, according to the Arbor Day Foundation.

Choosing the right trees for your home

Selecting the right trees for your property requires understanding your local ecosystem and tree species native to your region. But it also comes down to the look you want to achieve in your landscape design.

Above all, though, location and climate will always play the most significant factor in determining what tree can be planted for a home. To start, homeowners should first look up their home’s hardiness zone to see which trees will thrive best in the specified location. That will help you narrow down the list of trees you can plant.

Keeping plants and shrubs fertilized and well taken care of does make a difference for curb appeal. Be sure to remove any dying landscape and weeds. Also adding a fresh layer of mulch gives the updated appeal buyers are looking for when searching for their home. Remember every little attention to detail gives buyers the first impression the home has been expertly cared for in every way. Plus lets ensure you get top dollar for your properties sale.
