From plants, pools, fire pits, and barbecue sets, everything in your yard can either increase or decrease the value of your home, either hurting or helping your resale value no matter if you’re in the market for that or not.

With spring finally here, now is the perfect time to start planning your landscaping renovations and upgrades to make your home look better than ever in 2015. From flower upgrades to outdoor cooking spots, these trends can spruce up your space and make your house the place to be no matter what the occasion.

One of the biggest trends for outdoor spaces is in the gardens with a healthy balance of edibles and ornamentals to your space. Having a nice blend of local and imported flowers and plants while having fresh fruits and vegetables growing right alongside helps with any space issues you may have trying to have separate gardens for the two, while adding great color and beauty to the space. This mix will allow your garden to have a beautiful aesthetic look to it, while providing a fresh and delicious twist to the space.

Water effects are another feature for outdoor spaces that are growing in popularity in a big way. Whether it is a fountain or waterfall spilling into your pool or a pond or birdbath, a water feature in your outdoor space can add great serenity and elegance to your landscaping.
