Renovation Tip #12: Landscaping


According to research done by the popular home buying website, Zillow, there is a direct correlation between landscaping and a higher sales price. "It's often part of a package of features that signal to a buyer that a listing is a 'nice' home. That's why these homes command a price premium."


419 Sealion Place · Nanaimo, BC · Our renovation at Sealion included quite a bit of landscaping. The sizeable backyard wasn't flat or usable - it was sloped and neglected. We had to reconfigure the yard to maximize the usable space and we sectioned off designated areas for kids to play.

We also fixed some drainage issues in this home by hiring a landscape architect. We worked with them to create solutions that would drastically improve the lives of the future homeowners!

Lastly, we added a front patio at Sealion and created an exit from the breakfast nook. Not only did this create a lovely space for entertaining, but it also made it easier to entertain by making the more kitchen accessible!
