Our very own Ed Hansen was recently featured in the Ottawa Citizen! Anita Murray, the Homes editor at the Citizen, sought Ed’s advice in a column last week entitled “Landscaping tips to increase your home’s value.” Ed offers his recommendations to homeowners planning to landscape their yards. If you are planning a landscaped backyard, you need to determine why you’re making the improvements before you lay a dollar on the line. For example, if you don’t expect to be in the home long-term you should place a greater emphasis on ROI, but otherwise let your imagination guide you.
Interested in Ed’s viewpoint on a number of other aspects of landscape design, like the durability of stone patios instead of wood, or the power of red in outdoor space? Read Landscaping tips to increase your home’s value to find out more!
