As a landlord, it’s your responsibility to make your property attractive to as many potential tenants as possible. Of course, the most important part is the living space. How many bedrooms/bathrooms? What amenities are offered? How competitive is the rental rate? These things will be at the forefront of renters minds as they are searching for their next home.

But what about the landscape? Surely you want your lawn and foliage to be just as attractive as the house itself. Not only that, but the right landscape design can drastically reduce regular maintenance and even discourage prying eyes. Below are a number of ideas that you may want to consider for your investment property.

Landscaping may not be top priority when compared to the house itself, but it’s a considerable bonus for potential tenants. Consider investing your time and money into making your property look finished. A lush lawn, a few flower beds, or an outdoor living area go a long way in making a house feel like a home.
