What should I expect to Budget for Landscaping?
Updated: Feb 8, 2018
I found an article the other day that helps to put the cost of landscape into perspective.
"When budgeting for a landscaping renovation, you should plan to invest about 10% of your home's value, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). A more elaborate backyard sanctuary may require 15 to 20%. Much of what you will spend,
however, depends on how long you plan to stay in your home. If you plan to stay in your home for more than 10 years, 15 to 20% will give you the enjoyment you desire for years to come.
Your Landscaping Budget = Homes Value $_________ x 10% for Renovation
Your Landscaping Budget = Homes Value $_________ x 15-20% backyard sanctuary"
