Are you looking to sell your house in Los Cabos? Along with the ocean views, did you ever think how landscaping the gardens around your home may impact the value of your property?

Buyers are likely to want to tour a house more if the outside looks inviting and attractive instead of dreary and worn out. The change in value of a house if they have no landscape work completed in comparison to a well-landscaped front and back yard varies from 5.5 percent to 11.4 percent.

If you don’t have a lot of money to invest in hiring a landscaper to improve the gardens and yards around your house, there are simple and inexpensive steps you can take to beautify your outdoor space.

Keep reading to learn about the best three ways you can enhance your outdoor space in order to put more value into your house. Let’s get right into it!

Plant some flowers and remove those weeds

If you don’t have the money for a landscaper, take some time to plant shrubs, bushes, and flowers like perennials to your garden. Remove the weeds from your garden and yard while adding mulch to keep the flowers growing for longer.

If you have a dried up lawn, try to replant some green grass to give it the pop of color it needs to attract more buyers. These inexpensive steps will improve the overall value of your house.

Update the outdoor design

If you only have a few hundred dollars to improve your home value, take some steps to change the design of the outside of your home. Paint the front doorway and add brand new numbers showing the street address.

Add some potted plants to line the walkway where buyers get their first look. You may also want to plant a small tree to bring a bit more nature to your yard. You may also want to add a water fountain or zen garden to your outdoor space.

Build a deck or patio

If you have the time and money, you can add significant value to your home if you build a new deck or patio. This will allow buyers to imagine relaxing on the front porch with a book on a Sunday morning.

These three steps should help you increase the value of your home by improving the outdoor space. If you plant more flowers and enhance the design of your front yard, you’ll be able to sell your house for a greater amount than previously.
