Add Curb Appeal with Fast Growing Trees



Increasingly, sellers are realizing that staging their homes and creating curb appeal will help them to sell it for a far higher price. People regularly ask local real estate agents for advice about how to do this. One of the things many of them will tell you is that first impressions count. Curb appeal really matters, if a property does not look nice from the outside a lot of buyers will be completely put off. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to make a home look more attractive from the curbside.

The first step is creating a nice garden. When done right, landscaping can add as much as 20% to the value of a property. One of the quickest ways to make a big difference is to plant a fast-growing tree. Selecting, ordering and planting a nice tree for your home should only take you about an hour, so it really is easy.

As you can see from this website there are plenty of different varieties to choose between. So it is not hard to find the right one for your garden. Here are a few pointers to help you to select a tree that will add to the attractiveness of your property.

A beautiful shade tree for a small garden
If you have a small yard it is important to choose a tree that will not grow too big. You do not want the tree to overwhelm the space or get in the way. Should that happen, you can easily end up devaluing your property rather than adding to its value.

Redbuds work well. They grow to between 20 and 30 feet. In the right conditions, it will put on 2 to 3ft, per year. So, even after just one or two years, it will still look impressive.

A huge shade tree to fill a large garden
Sycamore trees grow at a phenomenal rate. Usually, 5 or 6ft per year and they can easily reach 40, sometimes 50 feet. Even when the leaves have dropped their mottled bark means that they continue looking attractive.

Fast-growing fruit trees
People love the idea of growing their own food. So fruit trees are a good addition to any garden. If you choose the right varieties they can grow as fast as 2ft per year and will typically produce fruit in the 2nd year.

View landscaping as an investment and plan ahead
For those who know they are going to sell their home in a few years time, planting fast-growing trees is an easy way to add a huge amount of value to it. According to the U.S Forest Service, a single mature tree located in the right part of your yard will add around $7,000 to your home’s value. That was the findings of a study that they carried out in 2010. If you adjust for inflation, you can expect that figure to be even higher now. So, if you have not already done so before, why not consider planting a tree?
