You get a $1.09 return on every dollar invested in quality Landscaping.

Modern Landscape by Tarrytown Landscape Architect Westover Landscape Design, Inc.

“It is the only home improvement that generates a greater than one dollar return for every dollar spent,” says Hall.

 
“Put the same dollar into a bathroom or kitchen and, according to the Home Remodelling Institute, you get 73 cents return for that dollar, but our own research shows that with every dollar put into landscaping you get $1.09 in return.”

So if your project is a $ 30’000 dollar investment, that means you will generate a return of $ 2’700 of pure profit in your pocket.

The surprise Daffodils we received on the doorstep must have inspired me a little bit to scatter these joyful bites around.
