Even a simple landscape represents thousands of dollars in value. Some landscapes increase property value by as much as $50,000 to $100,000. A 20-year oak, or a full grown magnolia are nearly impossible to actually replace if lost, but they continue to add value to your home as they mature. A single shrub that cost you $150.00 to install 5 years ago may easily be worth 8 to 10 times that amount today. You have a solid, rapidly growing investment in your landscape. Below are 5 important ways to keep your private green machine in top condition and growing in value.
Water: Measure the amount of rainfall your property receives with some type of gauge. Consistent watering will make everything else you do produce bigger and better dividends all year long.
Feeding: Good fertility management avoids the results of irregular feeding schedules. Delivering the right doses of nitrogen, phosphorus and potash at the proper time of year improves the health and appearance of your lawn and landscape.
