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.
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.

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.’
