A neat, tidy, and rich green lawn creates a good impression — and you know what they say about the power of first impressions. Property value, to some extent, is perceived value. To increase the perceived value of your property, you’ve got to go the extra mile of maintaining the perfect lawn, irrigation and drainage system.
Yes, the property value is partly dependent on the lawn and also on the structure. Surveys have shown that a good lawn can boost the perceived value of your home by 7 to 12 per cent.
Well, the figure may seem insignificant on face value, but if your property is worth over $500,000, it begins to make more sense.
You see, growing and taking good care of your lawn is a noble endeavour. It’s a long-term investment, and you get to reap the reward in due time.
The thing is, taking good care of your lawn isn’t that simple — you’ve got to understand the nitty-gritty of a good irrigation system, but if you don’t have time for all the hard work, you can hire reliable hands to handle the heavy lifting for you.
All in all, a good irrigation network translates to good lawn quality. This will, in turn, lead to higher property value.
