By definition, “landscaping” a property, means making improvements (or maintaining past improvements) on that property’s grounds. Try landscape software.   Everything on your property that stands outside of the home itself is part of a property’s landscaping.  A related word is “landscape.” When you landscape your yard, you are engaging in landscaping.
Landscaping is a win–win proposition. Tidying and greening around your home increases property value, is great for the environment and has been shown to improve your over all health! YEA

Does investing money in exterior landscape improvements help my home value?
Yes, here are the reasons why?

1–Trees increase value: According to research it has been said that a broad-leafed tree located on a street verge in front of a home increases the median property price by about $16,889.

2–Choose a leafy street: The economic value of green space that “leafy streets, with 50 per cent or more tree cover, added up to $29,000 (5.4 per cent) above the median house sale price”.

3–Landscaping achieves high-value returns: A Michigan University study found that homeowners achieved a 109 per cent return on every landscaping dollar spent – higher than any other home improvement.

4–Good landscape design increases value: The same Michigan University research found good landscape design – as judged by plant type, size and design sophistication – increased perceived home value by 5–11 per cent.

Does  Landscape Software Help In Designing An Efficient Yard?
Yes it does, A basic way to gather information to use any landscape software.  Before working with your software take some digital photos of the areas to be worked on. Then upload the images to a specific named file on to your computer and then into the software program.

Your software program will provide infinite different special effects to see how the area will look allowing a number of options all related to your ideas, thoughts and budget.  At this point the decision is like any other — IT IS UP TO YOU.

BUT, WAIT A MINUTE

I would believe that all this preliminary work does not tell me what I should really plant, change or improve.   So why not consider creating what I call LANDSCAPE PACKAGES.  Here is a good example:

3 separate Desert Landscape Packages

Although this example describes desert material we can see how this concept can be adapted for any physical location.  Also if you are considering a small space the analysis can be the same just set your mind to writing out 3 different options.

Landscape software will be extremely valuable using its color elevation design and other features  to provide a picture of all the options under consideration.

From this point it will be decision time.

Best of luck and I hope this article helped
