Hardscape Elements That Spike Your Home’s Resale Value Through The Roof!

Hardscape Elements That Spike Your Home’s Resale Value Through The Roof!

Making sure your home is sold for a good price is no piece of cake, especially if it has fallen into a state of disrepair. To increase the property value, the first thing you need to do is undertake a home improvement project that does not just focus on the interior of the place but also on the exterior.

Improving your property’s curb appeal by renovating and incorporating hardscape features into your landscape has proven effective in raising property value for resale. Hardscaping is the integration of hard and long-wearing environment structures and features into a landscape, e.g., walkways, garden arches, gazebos, and driveways.

Many people are doubtful about investing in the exterior of the property because of the cost. They think that the amount of money they would spend would be far more than the return they would receive on a sale. However, they could not be more wrong.

A study by RealEstate.com suggests that landscaping and hardscaping can deliver a whopping return on investment as high as 150%.

According to the 2018 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), consumers gave a fire feature addition and irrigation system installation a perfect 10 on the Joy Score. In comparison, a new deck or patio, water feature, and statement landscape all received a Joy Score of 9.7 or higher.

If you want to boost your home’s resale value, consider adding these features to your property.

Patio or Deck

Having an outdoor seating area can do a great deal to make your outdoors more livable. Spending the day in your backyard, surrounded by nature in this urban jungle, can be a big motivator for many buyers. A deck or patio can be a great spot to unwind, relax, and garner much-needed inspiration.


Having a dim place not only gives your property a creepy look and makes it inaccessible at night, but it is also a constant safety hazard. Seamlessly integrating lighting features into your landscape to give off an almost natural glow not only adds to the property’s curb appeal but also minimizes trip and fall accidents.

Fire Pit

Adding fire features like a fire pit can supply much-needed warmth and the slow enchanting glow of a bonfire so residents can enjoy a night under the stars.

Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen is a great convenience during a BBQ or garden party, so people who are very social can be motivated to buy the home.

Retaining Wall

Retaining walls are installed to restrain soil that can run off due to an incline. They help maintain your landscape features that might otherwise be disturbed and help create a boundary for security or aesthetic reasons.


Fences are something that appeals to buyers with kids and pets. Fences secure the premises against intruders and help in highlighting property lines to deter future property disputes.
