We Australians love the outdoors. But, sad to say, some homeowners still consider nature as a decoration in their home. Adding greenery is not a priority, and there’s a greater focus on the interior design. There’s nothing wrong with this, except you’re missing out on great benefits of innovative landscape designs.
According to research, landscaping can add up to 28% of your home’s overall value. We’re talking about tens of thousands of dollars to the property. The value increases immediately and grows higher as your garden flourishes in the next few years.
The monetary benefits of a landscaped garden shouldn’t be the only reason why you should bother with landscaping. It enhances your mental health and well-being too. The sight of trees and plants is relaxing. It removes stress and encourages happy thoughts and feelings. Because health is wealth, it’s worth investing in innovative and aesthetic garden designs.
How much are you willing to spend on landscaping?
After hearing what landscaping can do for them and their property, homeowners ask us how much the project would cost them.
Landscaping costs can be 10% of the build costs (or more). Costs are significant, but this is a meaningful investment. When done right, this becomes a powerful hallmark in your residence.
Our take on landscaping
At Superdraft, we have always regarded the landscape as an integral part of any building project. It is a fundamental part of an architecture. Great designers keep homes connected to the environment. Consider indoor-outdoor spaces connected to gardens in a physical, visual, and emotional way.
It isn’t an easy task to achieve. Designers and homeowners must consider this from the onset of the project. Every view and other interesting aspects of nature should be considered in the design. We take the time, engage landscape designers in our team, and explore possibilities in the design.
The goal is to make landscapes be one with architecture. In that way, the occupants stay connected to the Earth.
