5 Backyard Improvements to Add the Most Value

Published on July 13th, 2017

Add More Trees

Trees add many benefits for a yard. They provide shade, privacy, and are aesthetically pleasing. Another benefit of trees is that they appreciate over time! Experts usually say the younger the better for when you plant your trees, but if you want to add value to your home quickly than plant 8-foot-tall trees, 1-2 inches in diameter.


Outdoor Rooms

A landscaped patio can increase the value of your home by 12%! Adding a quality pavement job with some nice lawn furniture is the perfect way to make your home and yard appear more friendly.


Backyard Sanctuaries

The key to a backyard sanctuary is water. Depending on your taste, this could be a small fountain, a DIY pond, a hot tub, or even some bird baths. Adding a water structure creates a peaceful atmosphere that promotes relaxation. A sanctuary could cost between $50- $2,000, depending on your preferences and whether you install it yourself. But remember-it is an investment!


Landscape Lighting

Appropriately installed outdoor lighting adds a lot to your landscape. One option you could install is often called “Malibu lighting”. It runs on solar power and is easy to install. It keeps your plants and trees lit up, and it keeps burglars away from invading your property.



Fences provide many services for your home and its property. Privacy, safety, and landscape enhancement are all benefits of having a high-quality fence. Finding the right fence to fit your home can easily be done on a wide range of budgets. For advice on fences for your home, contact Top Line Fence today!
