In Australia a natural lawn can increase the value of your home by up to $75,668. It is estimated that a well maintained lawn will add $48,600 to a $405,000 property in Queensland, that’s an added value of 12%.

A study commissioned by Turf Australia confirmed that a backyard with a natural lawn does indeed increase the value of your property. The same study also found that 80% of the population prefer a lawn that represents a third of the total size of the property. Luckily in South East Queensland most backyards still make up at least 40% of a house block and up to 60% in some areas. Natural lawns provide a place to exercise, spend time with family and friends, and a way to relax without having to leave home. They offer environmental benefits and aid in the natural cooling of your home, reducing air-conditioning costs.

Lawn Solutions adding value to your home

If your lawn is looking tired, shabby or very unapealing and is dragging the perceived value of your home down, the best solution to increase the value of your home and make it more saleable is to install Australia’s most popular lawn choice, a DNA Certified Sir Walter lawn.

A time that you really should consider the state of your current lawn and its impact on the value of your property has to be when you make a decision that it’s time to sell.

According to homesale.com.au, ‘When selling your home, presentation is not only the key to the success of your sale, but also for getting the price you want. If you’re smart about it, investing some time and money into how your property is landscaped can make a big difference to your final sale price.’ 

There are a few things to note, if you are installing a new lawn in order to ready a property for sale:

  • A lawn will take a few weeks to fully establish and during that time it will require a bit of TLC and regular watering.
  • If you cannot afford to lay new turf throughout the entire property, you should at least consider the front lawn. It will enhance the street appeal of the home and this is where many decisions to buy or not to buy are made.
  • Will you still be living in the home or putting the house on the market whilst empty? A new lawn will require regular maintenance and watering, so it is preferable that someone be available to complete this.
  • Speak to your real estate agent; they are the best possible people to know what potential buyers are looking for in your local area. If it’s highly likely that new owners will add a pool or a back deck, than a new lawn may not be necessary or appropriate. On the other hand if the potential market is full of young families seeking a soft, safe area for the kids to play and kick a ball around, then a newly laid turf may just be the thing to get a signature on a contract.

A 12% increase in the value of your home is nothing to overlook and this is what lawn solutions can offer you.

Sean O'Connor
I am so impressed with the quality of the turf and the service provided by Daleys Turf that I would highly recommend them to anyone. My new lawn is amazing and Daleys have quality products to look after it. The staff are very knowledgeable and gave me great advice for looking after my new lawn. Very happy.
Laura Young
Terry and Harley worked absolute wonders! So happy with our new lawn... from start to finish they were really easy to deal with and offered great advice! As soon as it was laid it looked like it had been there forever and it took to the soil beautifully! Terry was kind enough to give me his sprinkler and tap timer when he noticed ours had been broken - above and beyond! Pictures just under 4 weeks after installation - front before mow, inside fence after it's first mow! These are unedited... it's so green!! Thank you Daleys Turf!

Our excellent experience with Daleys Turf started when Harley Schenk arrived at our home to assess our requirements for a new front lawn. His expertise coupled with his friendly manner and detailed explanation created an immediate confidence that assurred us we had chosen the best company for our needs. Harley arrived on schedule, was well presented and wasted no time in preparing the quote. On the day of installation again he arrived on time with his colleague Patrick and together they carried out the task. They were painstaking in their efforts in preparing the site and laying the new turf. I have witnessed many lawns being laid in our suburb and I can honestly state that my lawn stands out from the rest, due to the quality of the product and the meticulous standard of Harley's workmanship. If you think your lawn is in need of replacement do not hesitate to engage Harley at Daleys Turf, you will not be disappointed.

We have no hesitation in recommending Daley's Turf to you. They have delivered a first rate product in a professional manner. There was great communication with the company. The turf was ordered, an onsite inspection and discussion of alternatives and in no time we have a beautiful lawn. Special thanks to Harley for making it happen.
