Did you know that, on average, quality landscaping adds 5 to 11 percent value to your home? Even if you’re not looking to sell landscaping is an improvement that appreciates over time. Here are some ideas to get a head start:
If you’re selling in a year or less
If you’re looking to buy a new home and sell your current one, you’re likely on a budget and short on time. Consider these simple enhancements:
·         Edge the beds and nourish the grass – a clean, well-kept lawn gives a great first impression.

·         Add some color
There are a lot of inexpensive flower varieties that can make your home stand out to potential buyers.

·         Pay attention to your selection– Buyers will appreciate plant, tree and flower varieties that are low-maintenance and require less water.
If you’re improving for the long-term:
·         Make your backyard your space – A fence is a great investment for added privacy and one that will pay off if you decide to sell.

·         Trim down, add drama –
Cut down overgrown, out-of-control bushes and add some exotic varieties to give your yard a unique look.

·         Change your view –
Stemming away from traditional plant patterns can help accentuate your home’s best features. If you’re not sure, many nurseries offer free design help.
Herb gardens add fragrance and provide great options for fresh summer recipes. Here’s a great one to try:
Easy Grilled Pork Chops with Fresh Herbs
·         2 (1-inch thick) bone-in pork chops
·         Salt and pepper to taste
·         Extra virgin olive oil
·         1 tablespoon chopped mixed
·         herbs (such as parsley, thyme and chives)
Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Lightly brush both sides of the chops with oil, then set aside on a plate at room temperature
for 20 minutes.

Grill chops over direct medium heat, turning once, for 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a platter and set aside to let rest for 5 minutes. Garnishwith herbs and serve.
