Do you already have a landscape you really enjoy, except for that one annoying spot? Maybe it is an area that turns into a mud pit when it rains, or a space you thought would be useable, but it just isn’t yet because it is hard to navigate to. Smaller landscape projects like these, a project that tends to take 1-3 days from start to completion, we refer to as landscape enhancements! These projects are perfect for freshening up your property for a smaller cost than a full design-build project, but they make a huge difference.
In order to determine if a landscape enhancement project is right for your property, let’s dive into some of the enhancement projects we’ve completed recently. Our designers would be happy to discuss if your project falls into the enhancement or design-build category.
Case Study One
Homeowner A is a current client whom we completed a design-build landscape project install at his Leelanau County Home. He purchased a home in downtown Traverse City quickly, as the market was moving so fast, and he knew he would like a Traverse City location as well. After thinking it over, he realized this property was just not right for himself or his family as it had many stairs, including bedrooms upstairs. Homeowner A decided to list this property only weeks after purchasing it.
Over the summer, he had no action on his property whatsoever. He decided to call Doug, one of our owners, to see if he had any ideas of something that could be done quickly and cost-effectively at the home to get it to sell. A plan was devised after a visit to the property, and the project was completed in one day. Homeowner A’s home sold less than two days after the landscape was complete to a buyer that had not seen the home before the landscape was complete. Needless to say, he was thrilled!
