If you’re considering your property as an investment, such as investing in the trees, the likelihood is that you’ve already taken steps to increase its market value through interior alterations and perhaps improving the outside of your home with decking, a water feature or some landscaping. Intriguingly, research shows that a few well-tended trees in your yard or frontage can have a significant impact on both the attractiveness of your home as a purchased prospect and the end price which is eventually paid. Read on to discover how the right trees can really make a difference to the value of your property, as well as greatly enhance the living experience available in your outdoor space.
Good tree care is essential
When deciding what sort of trees to plant and where it’s important to think about the amount and type of tree maintenance that’s going to be needed to keep them in prime condition. Trees with minimal shedding can often be a better option, as are those which require minimal tree pruning or tree lopping. Remember that tree number and size should be proportional to your property: a larger space can accommodate a small copse and still look amazing, but the average yard requires only one or two small or medium trees in order to provide the greenery, shade and tranquil, peaceful ambience required.
