Good landscaping, including storage sheds , pergolas, pavilions, gazebos, outdoor kitchens, swing sets, or fireplaces, can add 10–25% to the value of a home.

The housing market is still on the slower side. It is times like these when homeowners need to protect and add value to their homes. Investments in a house can help increase the value and aid in a faster sale in a time of need. Adding outdoor living areas to a home can increase the value and allow residents to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

"Despite the weak economic climate, housing markets remain slow but competitive, especially between May and July, when real estate sales are at their peak,” says Rolf Zimmermann VP of Sales at Best in Backyards. Whether homeowners are thinking of selling their property or just want to enhance the curb appeal, there are a number of creative improvements they can make to both protect and increase the value of their home and property.

Good landscaping, including storage sheds, pergolas, pavilions, gazebos, outdoor kitchens, swing sets, or fireplaces, can add 10–25% to the value of a home. While there are a number of different ways to increase the value of a property, one of the most cost-effective improvements is the addition of a wooden pergola or pavilion.

Hiring a professional to install a swing set or pergola may seem like an extravagance, but their expertise can bring additional equity to a home and save the owner money by recommending additional low-maintenance custom features, including vinyl materials.

“Another important factor to consider is who you hire to do the work. Some estimates suggest that a homeowner should put 10% of the value of the home into beautifying the property," Zimmermann adds. "With that much at stake, it’s imperative that an outdoor kitchen or other custom work be properly constructed to achieve the desired outcome. That’s why it’s so important to work with a company that offers personal attention and care and has a proven track record.”
