ROI and Curb Appeal

When homeowners make decisions about landscaping and home renovations may choices ultimately come down to one thing—cost. And when factoring in cost, return on investment (ROI) is an important consideration, as well. For many people, a home and yard is their largest investment. So when you are preparing to make a significant upgrade, the ROI should be factored into that decision. Our advice—focus on ROI and curb appeal.


Updating your landscaping is an easy and affordable way to increase your home’s curb appeal. An updated landscape can add up to 14% to the resale value of your home. Landscaping can be as simple as weeding, mulching, or adding new flowers to your existing spaces. Or we can put together a custom landscape design to maximize your space to really increase your curb appeal. We’ll design a landscape, pick out local nursery stock, deliver them to your home, and install them into your new yard. From there, it’s up to you to just sit back and enjoy.

Clean the Driveway and Walkways

Moss growing on your driveway and sidewalks is not a good look. Nor is weeds and grass sprouting up in cracks. It adds to the wear and tear of these surfaces and will shorten their life which leads to larger expenses down the road. A new driveway can costs thousands of dollars. Power washing your driveway at the beginning of spring? A couple hundred. Protect your investment with proper care.

Revamp Outdoor Living Areas

Adding to your outdoor living space is a major project when it comes to cost and scale. But when that project is completed, you can expect a 20-30% return on investment. And you’ll enjoy your new patio, deck, pool, gazebo, or fire pit for many years to come.

Add Lighting

Exterior lighting pulls your yard together. It can emphasize the beauty of plants and landscape materials during the night. And it maximizes that amount of time you can spend in your outdoor living space. Lighting features should complement the design of your landscape and enhance its beauty. An underrated feature for many homes, landscape lighting is an effective way to increase the return on your investment.

Focus on two things—ROI and curb appeal. When you work with Design Works you don’t sacrifice one for the other. Let’s work together on your landscaping project in Hudson, Nashua, and across Southern New Hampshire. Contact us today to get your project started.
