While grass provides many environmental benefits, many may not realize how important a well maintained lawn is to their home and/or property’s value. A well-landscaped home has a significant price advantage over a home with no landscaping, or with poor landscaping.
Landscaping, for most people, includes a healthy lawn. While other alternatives exist, consumers choose grass year after year. Nothing beats the price, ease and benefits of grass. This advantage ranges from 5.5 percent to 12.7 percent depending on the type of landscaping and the home’s original value.
