Evergreen Landscapes, LLC Patios, Paver Driveways

Studies have shown that landscaping is the best investment a homeowner can make. It can increase your home’s value by up to 15 percent. Here are some interesting articles on this subject.

“As an investment, landscaping can increase the value of your property by as much as 20 percent–if it is done well.” This Old House magazine April 2003

“Spending 5 percent of the total value of your home on landscaping, and doing it wisely, you can add 15 percent or more to the value of your home.” Smart Money magazine March 2003

“According to a joint study by Clemson University and the University of Maryland, potential home buyers will pay up to 11.3 percent above the asking price for homes with thoughtfully-designed landscaping.” Mid-Valley Sunday (Corvallis, OR) April 13, 2003

Make a realistic budget. One rule of thumb is to invest 5 to 15 percent of your house’s worth into landscaping. If this seems steep, consider that appropriate landscape improvements are estimated to return 100 to 200 percent of their cost when a house is sold. You can rely on Evergreen to transform your property, while giving you peace of mind, knowing that you’re dealing with a company that promotes honesty, integrity, and customer satisfaction as its highest principals.
