At Bradley Landscape we’re here to address all questions and concerns and provide all necessary information. There are a number of inquiries which are common to so many clients, especially those who may be working with us for the first time. Here are a number ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ often encountered:
Yes, absolutely – In recent years, there have been quite a few studies on this very subject. Here are just a few examples:
Money Magazine determined that landscaping offers an excellent return on investment and ranked top out of any home improvements. In addition, there was a study done by the American Society of Landscape Architects in conjunction with Money Magazine finding a recovery value of 100% to 200% of landscaping costs which can be gained when selling your home.
Clemson University of Clemson, SC, stated that homes with excellent landscaping will sell for 6% to 7% more than comparable homes with just good landscaping.
Michigan State University found similar results, but gives good landscaping even more value. They state that the perceived value of a home which is landscaped nicely is improved by as much as 12%.
The Society of Real Estate Appraisers also feels a nicely landscaped home adds value and actually causes homes to sell more quickly.
The U.S. Forest Service found that just trees alone can add 3% to 7% to the value of a home.
Most landscape projects do not require permits, however some projects involving retaining walls, trellises, swimming pools and fire places may require permits.
We are primarily an “infield” design build company. This means that our scope of design typically takes place in the field during construction as your project takes place: how tall is your countertop, what other materials are available, how wide do you want a pathway to be, what slope should concrete have….the list goes on. We prefer to work with a landscape architect who can provide us a landscape design, whoever has the ability to design landscape plans.
Let us show you the Bradley Landscape difference; a fantastic experience and end-product you’re excited and proud to share.
