Today’s residential landscapes serve a much broader purpose that they use to, there is more and more emphasis on functionality, architectural character and in desert climates such as San Diego, sustainability. Mid-century properties and even those built-in the 70′s through the 90′s seemed to entail a basic scheme that simply framed in property lines and maybe lent some texture and color to the house. Today, outdoor living is a key part of everyday life and residential landscaping has been reinvented to not only include, but enrich comfort, entertainment value, architectural style and luxury to the average home.
Ask yourself; if your backyard was a room, would it become the largest room in your house? If that room were designed to allow you to prepare meals for friends and family, relax next to a fireplace or fire-pit at the end of each day, read a book under a rich wooden shade structure, or even watch Monday night football in your own outdoor cantina with your friends, all in one spot…. would that be your favorite room in the house? Why not create it?
Investing in a landscape makeover pays off. Putting 5% – 10% of the value of your home into a well designed landscape can easily return 100 – 200% of your investment. With the slowdown in the home market, attractive landscaping is a must if you plan on getting top-dollar for your home. There is a lot of inventory and a lot of competing properties.
