When you invest in a home, you either intend to live there for the rest of your life (in which case, you want it to be comfortable), or you intend on selling it later in life (in which case, you want to maintain and increase its value). We’re going to take a look at how you can use your landscaping to accomplish either of these goals.

Have an Outdoor Kitchen Installed

An outdoor kitchen, along with an eating and lounging area, ensures that you will use and enjoy your outdoor space. It is also a great boost for resale value of a home. Built-in grills and other outdoor appliances mean you are always ready to enjoy the yard with family and friends.

Design a Sustainable Landscape

Sustainable landscapes do more than just conserve resources. They are also easier to maintain long-term and so instead of just looking good for a couple of years, they have long-term appeal and value. One key element of a sustainable landscape is using the right species that will withstand local weather conditions. In the southwest US, that usually means desert shrubs and grasses as well as native trees like the California Fan Palm.

Maintaining Trees and Shrubs

You need to prune and trim these plants properly. Otherwise, you run the risk of one day waking up and realizing everything has been overgrown for a long time. It’s much easier to keep a landscape under control than to regain control once it has grown wild.
