Many a potential homebuyer may never enter your home if it lacks curb appeal or has a poorly maintained landscape. The front yard should be your focal point. Studies show that well landscaped homes sell up to 6 times faster than comparable homes in the same neighborhoods. Usable space, proper space planning and the use of quality materials such as natural stone, quality woods, or exotic plants will enhance the return provided.
