Thanks for the articles Jim. I remember the second one from a while back and was looking for it!

Here's something that ran in the USA Today on Monday. It looks like showing some people who are on the fence about dropping some cash on their landscape couldn't hurt.

Jim

allthough we will never always agree on everything thank you for posting this

allow me to put my 02 cent s in

this is why i read lawnsite

i get bored debating the merits of mowers... trucks and equitment..

this is a great article

If i had a dollar for every homebuilder who stripped away so much of the landscaping that someone had to put it back in... a dollar for every person who bought land... walked it and placed their HOUSE on the most perfect spot...

i wouldn't need to work..I'm no real estate expert... but a few well placed trees of substance and size make a property not only more attractive but more valueable as well...

look at any magazines discussing homes of substance... look at the most expensive listings and tell me what you see

TREES...Details. Well thought out driveways....and walkways
Details around the front door and parking area that allow you to know where to park and walk...

Most builders by me offer 1 acre cookie cutter mostly treeless 2% grade mcmansions

want to sell one when all 10 on the block look the same.... Curb appeal

Thanks for the article

Nate

Can't say I read every post on this thread.

Can say that I often tell commercial prospects that"

"Your front lawn and landscape is really thetrue front lobby of your business"

... and I say it because it's true -goes to curb appeal.
