Real estate sales in York County, SC are booming again. You’ve probably noticed that homes for sale in your area aren’t staying on the market for long. Homes that are for sale are selling for more money. In fact, RealtyTrac estimates that homes in Rock Hill are selling for almost 6.5% more than this time last year. If you’re thinking about selling your home, you’ll want to make sure it’s looking the best it possibly can. Professional landscaping can help a great deal in this area. The team at Lee’s Nursery & Landscaping offers the following reasons why professional landscaping is best for increasing your curb appeal and property value.

First, create a plan for the overall design of your landscape installation. It’s not enough to go to your local nursery and pick out some plants. There’s a great deal of thought that must go into any successful landscape design. Professional landscapers come to your home, take a look at your property, and determine what features will work best for your yard. They’re then able to incorporate any ideas you may have. It’s a level of expertise that yields much better results than DIY landscaping.

Next, make sure the plants and trees you install in your yard will actually be successful. Many big box garden stores stock plants that aren’t even meant to grow in your location. You’ll risk disappointment, especially if you’re trying something new. However, landscaping contractors already know what will and won’t work in your climate—or even in your particular yard. They’ll evaluate the drainage, sunlight, and position of your home to determine the best choices for your property. If you have ideas that may not work well, they have the knowledge to suggest alternatives.

Finally, think about enhancing your new and improved yard with landscape lighting. Many professional contractors, including Lee’s Nursery & Landscaping, install outdoor lighting. You’ll be amazed at the difference this feature can make. It’s one of the best enhancements you can make to improve your curb appeal and impress potential buyers.
