If you are looking to sell your property this spring, experts say that good landscaping can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home.
But, to get the buyer's attention, a garden should be beautifully designed, well-maintained, & # 39; and function as an extension of other areas of housing.
Get this formula correctly and you could increase the value of your home by up to 25 percent, according to the Domain.
"Good landscaping can increase the value of a house by 15-20 percent and perhaps by 25 percent," Antony Aris, managing director of Bondi Landscapes, told the publication.
To attract the buyer's attention, a garden must be beautifully designed, well-maintained and function as an extension of other areas of the home.

While trends and gardens come and go, an outdoor space with smaller grass and paved living areas is currently the best option.
"Now buyers want a paved terrace, eating outdoors and a barbecue in the back door, with another destination far from the house where you can sit and look back," said Aris.
"Reflecting on the house is as important as sitting in the house, looking at the garden," he added.

However, your home has a more complete garden, with a lush lawn, do not despair, said Matt Cantwell, general manager of Secret Gardens, who also spoke about the publication.
He believes that many potential buyers will fall in love with a property because it comes with a well-tended garden, especially those with a passion for this type of lifestyle.
And although having a garden is one of the advantages offered by a larger space, those who live in apartments are now also embracing smaller spaces defined by the vertical vegetation that covers them.
This type of more imaginative gardens, created with balconies or common spaces, are not only visually pleasing, but can also help define boundaries and create privacy.
The key to creating a garden that captures the heart of a buyer is to ensure that the space is seen as an extension of the home and does not require additional work.
Designer Jase Campbell for Coco Republic, who also spoke with Domain, believes that the right choice of outdoor furniture helps to fuse an interior / exterior transition smoothly.

Before rushing to spend a lot of money on landscape design, it's worth noting that it's about achieving balance.
If it looks beautiful, but like it will be too much work to maintain, this will deactivate the buyers.
According to Orsolya Bartalis, who spoke with Realestate.com.au, when it comes to the garden, you need to find a balance & # 39;

"No garden is a great detour, as well as a very well-kept garden," said Ms. Bartalis on the site's blog.
She recommends opting for a basic makeover, if necessary, as the safest way to make money in exchange for your outdoor spending.
& # 39; Make sure there is some grass and a simple and easy to maintain garden design. Do not overdo the characteristics of the water, the coating, the hidden gardens, the pavement and the like.
