What does Landscaping Mean to You?

The loose term of “landscaping” encompasses many different things. While many associate the term with the simple act of planting flowers and creating a healthy, green lawn, it actually means so much more. Landscaping is the art of creating a perfect yard. It’s the art of adding aesthetically pleasing features to your yard, removing those that are not wanted and turning something that is not your taste or up to your standards into something remarkable and worthy of a second look. Landscaping is one of the most important considerations when it comes to any home.  Whether it is sitting on your outdoor patio in Tampa watching the kids play, or watching the boats sail by in your beautifully landscaped backyard, a well landscaped outdoor living area can make the perfect place to end your day.

What makes landscaping so important is first impression. A person will judge and make an assessment in less than five seconds of meeting someone or seeing something for the first time, and that opinion is often difficult to change once made. Your yard is the first thing anyone sees when they come to your home. An unattractive, unkempt home with no landscaping – or poor landscaping – will leave others with a bad taste in their mouths.

Great Landscaping Leads to a Direct Increase in Home Value

Additionally, your home might one day be on the market. For now it’s your dream home, but a big life event such as an unexpected job opportunity can quickly change things. If ever you find yourself looking to sell, your yard is going to be one of the first things people notice. Many beautiful homes with a load of potential miss out on possible buyers based on unattractive landscaping, which leads buyers to other homes. Not only is it ugly, it turns buyers off because they don’t really want to have to figure out how to handle the landscaping in any one yard.

What matters most, however, is how you feel about your home. Pulling into the drive at the end of the day should be something you love to do. It should be something that makes you happy; something that makes you feel good about your house. It should be an act that leaves you feeling good about yourself. Your yard should be the type of place in which you want to spend time; a place you want to enjoy and relax. Your yard should be beautiful, elegant and comfortable. Your yard should have the right landscaping. Give us a call today at (813) 408-4216 for a free consultation, or fill out our online form for a CPLC representative to call you back.  Thank you!
