If you have an empty lot next to your home, this is the prime opportunity to buy it before someone else does. There are many advantages of buying the lot, four of which are listed below.
Control Your View
Buying the lot will help you control the view that you see when you look out the window. It would be very frustrating if you have a beautiful view, such as a creak or forestry, for someone to block it out by building a home or a building on the land. If you buy the property, you can prevent this from happening.
Improve the Landscaping
If the lot looks undesirable, such as from overgrown weeds or debris, this can take away from the beauty of your home and landscaping. If the grass is dead or has a bunch of bare patches, you can replant it very easily. One way to do this is by hydroseeding. You will also hear hydroseeding referred to as mulch seeding or hydro-mulching.
Hydroseeding involves mixing together fertilizer, mulch, water, and seed and putting the mixture in a tank. A large jet hose is attached to the tank, and the mixture is sprayed over the ground. You can choose any type of grass seeds that you want. You could use wildflower seeds instead of grass seeds to plant a field of wildflowers. The fertilizer, which will be high in phosphorous, is needed to stimulate the root growth. The mulch in the mixture is important, as this is what turns the grass green.
Once the lot is covered in grass, plant some low maintenance plants to keep it looking beautiful without having to do a lot of work. You could also plant flowering bushes or plant some trees on the property. If you need help, hire a landscape contractor, such as Bark Blowers & Hydroseeding Inc, to create a beautiful landscaping for you.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Purchasing the lot next door can increase the value of your home, especially if it has beautiful landscaping. Potential buyers will not have to worry about nosy neighbors so their home will feel more private to them. The extra land in itself raises the value, as the more land you have the more value your home is. Many homeowners look for larger yard areas when buying a home. This is beneficial if you ever decide to sell your home in the future.
When buying the land next door negotiate with the seller so you can get the best price for it.
The landscaping in your yard can do much more than make everything look pretty. Do you have areas of your property that remain soggy long after the rains have passed? Are there areas that get washed out during storms? Are there some places that simply aren't usable when you want to use them? Our blog will provide you with several ideas for using landscape design to make areas of your property that aren't currently usable into areas that are enjoyable, beautiful and maybe even increase the value of your property. We hope that you find the solution to whatever problems you are having right here.
