Pull the trigger, and get it done with our help! As you may know The American Fence Company of Lincoln now offers landscaping through our American Landscaping Company! There are various reasons as to why landscaping is a great addition to your home.

  1. Curb appeal. If you are putting your home up for sale, landscaping makes an excellent first impression! If the outside of your house is inviting, people will be more inclined to want to look on the inside.
  2. Property value. Landscaping that is done tastefully can increase the value of your home up to 20 percent! The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recommends that homeowner’s spend at least 10% of their homes value on landscaping to get the best return. Some landscape has even yielded a higher return than bathroom or kitchen remodels!
  3. Lower energy bills. By strategically planting trees and other dense bushes and/or shrubs, you can save money on heating and cooling costs. Such landscaping provides shade during the hot summer months as well as a wind break in the cold winter months.
  4. Non-monetary advantages. Benefits such as; noise control, decrease of vandalism, blocking of unpleasant views, as well as optimal use of outdoor space.

All of these pros outweighing the cons of completing a few simple additions of landscaping to make your home stand out from the rest is definitely beneficial.
