Landscaping should try to combine the owner's practical considerations, such as being low maintenance, with functional objectives. Is it space for entertaining or a quiet spot for meditating? It should also flow with the architectural style of the property and reflect its location regionally. For example, you probably don't want to pair a Japanese garden with a modern bungalow.
A great landscape can actually change the habits of the people who own it, enabling them to spend more time outside. People want happiness in their lives, and a great landscape can deliver that.
When selling your home, get into the perspective of someone seeing the house for the first time. The potential buyer may notice the unattractive shed in the neighbor's yard. Although it's not part of the your property line, the potential buyer sees it as part of the view. You could cover that view with taller plantings. The idea is to take away bad things first, then play up the positives. Dollar for dollar, sellers will receive more return by putting in trees, shrubs, and perennials. If you work on your curb appeal, you'll be able to get more people to come to the front door.
