A yard with a beautiful landscape is one of the few home investments with a value that increases over the years. Most buyers love mature plants and trees, so creating a beautiful yard even if you’re not planning on selling for a few years is a smart way to go. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Novi and Northville neighborhoods and we would like to share with you some money-saving tips. Many municipalities recycle the yard waste they pick up curbside throughout the year into mulch, which is then made available to residents for free or a very low price. Surrounding your shrubs and trees with a layer of mulch not only makes them stand out visually, it also helps conserve moisture and stave off bugs. Check out Craigslist in the farm and garden section. It can advertise a treasure of outdoor plants, border stones and even used trees and shrubs. And be sure to trim your trees, shrubs or vines that can overwhelm your landscaping. Sometimes the most effective landscaping upgrade can come from removing greenery, not adding it.

Also, be sure to pull your weeds. It’s the outdoor equivalent of de-cluttering your home, an inexpensive way to boost your yard’s visual appeal.
