Benefits of Landscape Design

Many homeowners start thinking in the spring about ways to enjoy the outdoors. For many, those thoughts lead to a desire to improve their own outdoor living spaces. Below are three reasons that a landscape design project is a great idea.

1. Quality of Life

Landscape design can go a long way to improving the quality of life for you and your family. Green spaces, in general, have been shown to improve the mental and physical health of those who interact with them. For example, if you have a busy schedule with work and family, you may want to have a quiet, relaxing area outdoors to unwind. With landscape design, you can put up barriers such as fences or trees that give you privacy and make your yard quieter. As a result, a yard can be a serene area for those looking to get away from life’s stresses.

Your yard can also promote enjoyable physical activity, such as sports or gardening. You can design your landscape to be wide and open, add various features for entertaining, or even install a swimming pool. Other outdoor features that can improve your quality of life include:

  • Outdoor kitchens
  • Fireplaces
  • Seating & Dining Areas
  • Spas

These features can transform a backyard into whatever you want and need in your life, whether you want a private resort feel or a quiet getaway.

2. Increase Property Value

One of the great benefits of landscape design for the homeowner is that a beautiful, well-maintained landscape increases property values. Homes are more than shelter; homes are investments, and if the investment is in good condition, the value increases. Lawn care provides a return on investment of up to 270 percent. Improving an outdoor space from average to excellent has measurable effects on a home’s value.

Just having trees in a front yard has notable impacts on the property value. For example, large trees in yards along streets increase a home’s value from 3 percent to 15 percent. In addition, a smart sprinkler and irrigation system keeps lawns lush and green. Manicured gardens, well-built structures, and hardscaping such as pools and decks are examples of landscaping improvements that can increase curb appeal to potential buyers.

3. Better Entertainment and Social Value

Our homes and landscapes can allow us to gather and connect with family and friends. Many people’s homes and landscapes are social spaces, and having a welcoming, inviting space that facilitates and enhances social connection is valuable. Landscape design offers many different solutions for improving entertainment in the outdoors. When a home’s living space expands to the outdoors, new experiences unfold.

Here are examples of how landscapes can be used as social spaces and how landscape design can create or enhance those spaces.

  • Outdoor kitchens and grills provide new spaces for dining and engaging with family and friends.
  • Lounge areas with firepits or fireplaces let people relax and have conversations.
  • Lighting creates ambiance and the ability to highlight certain features of a home.
  • Pools and spas allow people to relax and cool off in the summer heat.

Landscaping design provides tremendous benefits for homeowners looking to make their homes centers for community and entertainment.

Top 5 Landscaping Projects with the Highest Return on Investment (ROI)

Homeowners considering home improvement projects often think about whether they will get the value back when they decide to sell their homes. Of course, kitchens and bathrooms are usually high on the list of popular renovations. However, homeowners may overlook that many outdoor landscaping projects can yield 100% or more of their investment in a home sale. In addition, the outdoor home improvements will enhance their family’s enjoyment with the upgrades to the outdoor living space.

Landscaping Projects that Add Value to Your Home

Burkholder Brothers Landscape does all types of outdoor home improvements. We have collected information about which ones give you the best value for your hard-earned dollars. Some of the enhancements are so simple that they might surprise you.

1. Lawn Care

One of the most significant ways homeowners can increase their ROI on outdoor landscaping projects is to maximize curb appeal. Prospective buyers look carefully at landscaping when inspecting different houses, so the landscaping needs to be attractive and pristine. For example, suppose a buyer is looking at 2 different houses: one only has foundation planting in the front yard, while the other has more vibrant front yard landscaping with flower beds, window boxes, and other landscape features.

As a result, the buyer is far more likely to be attracted to and willing to pay more for the second house, allowing you to recoup more of your investment by listing your home at a higher price.

Essential lawn maintenance and upkeep improve curb appeal, but did you know that simply controlling weed growth and fertilizing can yield a ROI of nearly 270%? That is what a 2018 joint study by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) found.

2. General Landscape Elements

In addition to improving your landscape, you can also add various landscape elements to your property to increase your ROI.

  • Walkways or stepping stones make traversing your yard easier (and cleaner when mud is present), and they also make a yard appear more cared for.
  • Large planters are visually appealing and relatively inexpensive.
  • Outdoor lighting adds greater security and more time to enjoy your outdoor living spaces.

The NALP and NAR study found that these types of upgrades can yield approximately an 80% ROI, and outdoor lighting can return 50% of the costs, primarily if you use the lighting to accentuate other aspects of your property, such as showing off the nearby plants or highlighting the architecture of your home.

3. Patios & Decks

Other types of landscaping projects that can make your outdoor space more usable and provide a high ROI are patios and decks. The addition of these exterior structures adds much value to a home in the eyes of homeowners and buyers. For example, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2021 Cost vs. Value Report, a new deck can return around 60-70% on your investment, depending on the materials used. This feature adds usable living space for your family. In addition the addition can complement your landscape and architecture while increasing your living space and making room for entertaining options, like eating or cooking areas and even a spa.

4. Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular landscape features for homeowners over the past few years. An outdoor kitchen can be a landscape project that helps seal the deal when convincing prospective homeowners or buyers to buy your house. Some of the most common outdoor kitchen features are grills, dining areas, and outdoor bars that include built-in coolers and sinks. Other elements that you can consider adding to an outdoor kitchen that might help set your property apart from others in the eyes of buyers are firepits and pizza ovens. Based on the NALP and NAR study, you can expect a return on investment of approximately 70% if your outdoor kitchen project is relatively simple.

5. Softscape Upgrade

Adding upgraded soil that better nurtures grass and plant growth is one of the relatively simple landscaping projects that improve the overall look of your lawn. Lush shrubs and trees lend privacy, shade, and beauty. According to the University of Washington, larger trees in yards can add around 3% to 15% to your home’s value while increasing your pride and pleasure in your landscape.

Patio Options to Make Your Outdoor Space Exceptional

Many homeowners enjoy spending time out on their patios and want to make their patios suit their needs. Some want protection from the elements, others want to cook and dine outdoors, and others need a lot of seating for entertaining guests. However you like to spend time outdoors, the patio options available to you can take your outdoor space to the next level. Here are some ideas for features and structures that can improve your patio and outdoor space.

See Our Patio Portfolio!

Covers and Shade Structures

Some of the most popular patio options for homeowners are structures that provide cover and shade, which take many forms based on peoples’ preferences.

  • Pergolas are freestanding structures, typically made from wood, that provide partial overhead coverage and are especially beautiful with plant or canopy accents.
  • A pavilion is another freestanding structure similar to a pergola: the main difference being that a pavilion has a fully-covered roof. Pavilions provide plenty of coverage for backyard areas like a grill.
  • Shade sails are outdoor covers made from fabric that offer shade (and look similar to the sails of a boat) and are ideally installed over decks or patios.

Each of these structures and coverings has unique designs and is excellent if you want to keep UV rays and rain from messing up your outdoor fun.

Outdoor Kitchen

A growing trend among homeowners who want to improve their patios and backyards is to add an outdoor kitchen or dining area. Both of these patio options make your space noteworthy and exceptional while also having many design possibilities. For example, if you like to cook outdoors and want an outdoor kitchen designed for entertainment, you can add a bar or island so your friends and family can chat while cooking. You can also add various cooking tools and features, such as pizza ovens or beer taps, to give you more options. And these can be outfitted with additional features like warming drawers, sinks, and refrigerators to make your outdoor kitchen as high-tech as your indoor kitchen.

Seating Walls

More and more homeowners are adding outdoor furniture to their patios for extra seating, but one of the more creative ways people add additional seating is with seating walls. A seating wall is a short wall designed for seating, combining all of the benefits of a place to sit with retaining walls. In addition, while weatherproof and resistant outdoor furniture exists, a seating wall can easily withstand exposure to sunlight, rain, snow, and other weather. So if you need to control a slope in your yard, repurpose a retaining wall, or want to define where the patio ends and the yard begins, seating walls are great choices.

Seating walls also work when paired with other patio features. For example, a fire pit makes for a great central location to gather around for entertainment, and a seating wall can accommodate many people while reflecting heat from the fire for a cozy lounge area.

Other Patio Options

In addition to the options listed above, here are a few other ways to improve your patio.

  • Fireplaces and fire pits, as mentioned previously, are great for creating comforting and inviting entertainment spaces.
  • Sound systems give entertainment options, like playing music when hosting a party with friends and family.
  • Adding plants around the patio is ideal for nature lovers and those who appreciate their landscape.

Burkholder’s landscape design experts will work closely with you through a proven design process to arrive at concepts suited to your needs, sense of style, and home.

Five 2022 Landscape Design Trends to Improve Your Landscape

Now that 2022 is in full swing, many homeowners will be thinking about their landscaping goals and projects for the year. Burkholder offers five 2022 landscape design trends to incorporate into home landscapes. Now is the time to meet with your hardscape and landscape contractor, and these 2022 trends are versatile and practical enough to be suitable for any landscape.

Learn About Our Design Process

A central theme of many of these trends is homeowners wanting to maximize their available spaces and use those spaces to their full advantage. A beautiful, sustainable garden or an entertainment area are just two of the many ways to combine style and practicality, which will be a big element of 2022 landscape design.

Five 2022 Landscape Design Trends

If you’ve been wondering what you can do to improve your landscape, here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Making the Most of Outdoor Spaces

As people remain in one home over many years, their desire to improve their homes and yards becomes stronger. Expanding the indoors to the outdoors has been a growing trend for some time, and many outdoor features and structures let homeowners do just that. Extending a deck or patio gives homeowners more options for outdoor fun. With the extra usable space decks and patios provide, homeowners can create lounges with fire pits and furniture or add features such as spas. For the space outside of the immediate range of the home or deck, pergolas and pavilions provide shade and protection, giving people the ability to keep entertainment areas safe and usable throughout most of the year.

2. More Elaborate Outdoor Spaces

In addition to more outdoor features and structures, homeowners increasingly want these features and structures to be elaborate and unique. One of the big landscape design trends in 2022 is people looking for new uses for their yards, new ways to enjoy the outdoors by themselves or with their friends and families. For example, a pavilion can have overhead electricity so that space heaters can help homeowners enjoy the colder months outdoors more often than in the past. Another increasingly widespread feature of back yards is an outdoor kitchen, complete with dining tables, seating, grills, and even fireplaces or pizza ovens.

3. Low-Maintenance Lawn Care

While many people love spending time outdoors, most of them likely prefer spending their time relaxing or playing outdoors instead of working. As a result, homeowners are always looking for ways to keep their landscape beautiful and make lawn care more manageable and convenient. One of the most obvious ways is a smart sprinkler and irrigation system that can minimize water usage to help save money.

Natural stone for patios, shrubs, trees, and drought-tolerant or other low-maintenance plants can help create a beautiful, unique landscape while needing minimal care. Using natural elements and intelligent design, you can maintain quality and a low-maintenance lawn much more easily in 2022 than in previous years. And of course, many residents choose to have professionals, like Burkholder’s professional maintenance team, take care of lawn mowing, tree and shrub pruning, and bed maintenance.

4. Ambient and Invisible Lighting

Great lighting for a patio, deck, path, or pool will always be popular. However, the type and style of lighting people desire in 2022 will be different. Sleek, minimalist lighting will be one of the more prominent 2022 landscape design trends. Techniques such as lighting the essential points and junctures of a path and hiding the lights that brighten up the home are elements of invisible lighting landscaping trends.

Invisible lighting involves blending the lighting into the landscape. For example, long, linear lights beneath landscape structures create the illusion of floating structures. People are becoming more interested in seeing the light rather than the lighting fixtures, and as a result, invisible lighting will gain traction in 2022.

5. Mixed Materials in Hardscape

Hardscape describes the man-made features in landscape architecture, such as walkways, pavilions, and walls. Mixing and matching hardscaping elements and amenities or technology is a creative way to add beauty to your landscape in 2022. For example, creating a natural stone path to a sturdy, wood pergola, with perhaps some metal furniture or a grill, can become a favorite sight to behold.

Walls, decks, patios, and pools can all incorporate these contrasting materials. In addition, hardscapes surrounded by vibrant, native plants and even soothing water features such as a fountain or a small pond create a unique outdoor living space.

All of these 2022 landscape design trends tie into a broader theme: creating a comfortable, easy-to-maintain living space that is unique to your home. So when you are making plans concerning what improvements or additional features to add to your landscape, think of creating a welcoming space that you can only find in your backyard.

Fall Lawn Care Tips for 2021

The hot weather of summer has given way to the cooler temperatures of fall. And with fall comes time to keep your lawn maintained and prepared for winter. Homeowners have options for maintaining their lawns, and professional lawn care can elevate a lawn’s appearance and health to another level. Here are a few fall lawn care tips to help prepare your property for winter.

4 Fall Lawn Care Tips

Burkholder’s team members are landscape experts at lawn care and offer 4 recommendations for keeping your lawn in shape throughout the cold season and for enjoying your outdoor space.

Learn About Our Landscape Maintenance Services

1. Schedule Winterization

A major fall lawn care tip is to schedule winterization for your property, especially if you have a sprinkler or irrigation system. Winterization is important to keep your lawn, irrigation system, and other areas of your property healthy and functional by the time snow start falling. For irrigation systems, you want to schedule winterization in mid to late fall, before December. On an important note, you should get your irrigation system winterized before you experience several days of freezing temperatures (below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.) When temperatures are below freezing, the water in your irrigation lines can freeze, expand, and damage your sprinkler system.

Get your lawn winterized during the same timeframe: around late November to early December. Winter lawn fertilizer strengthens the roots and helps the grass survive cold weather. A winter lawn treatment keeps your turf strong and green through the fall and ready to perk up again once spring arrives. How your lawn should be winterized can depend on what grass type you have, so reach out to a landscape professional to determine the best winterization plan for your property.

2. Have Trees and Shrubs Mulched

Mulch keeps plants insulated, keeping soil cooler during summer and warmer during winter. In addition to protecting plants from extreme temperatures, mulch helps soil retain water and prevents weed growth. If you have trees on your property, you can even use fallen leaves as mulch. A landscape professional can ensure that your plants have proper mulching to protect them during the upcoming cold weather.

3. Trim Shrubs

Getting your shrubs trimmed in the fall will help prepare them for winter. All of the dead, damaged, or otherwise unwanted branches should be cut during fall so that the shrubs can maintain their shape in springtime. For certain species, trimming shrubs during the fall can even prevent the spread of diseases since the shrubs will have more energy to use on healing rather than growing new stems or branches.

4. Make Your Lawn a Gathering Place

No list of fall lawn care tips would be complete without mentioning how to make your landscape hospitable for family and friends to gather during the cool months as well as all year long.

Have a Custom Firepit or Fireplace Added

A firepit makes a great addition to a backyard if you want to enjoy cool autumn nights outside with friends and family. Firepits are often the centers of attention and make great spots to gather and enjoy others’ company. The heat from the fire makes outdoor gathering in winter temperatures feasible, and seating such as chairs or benches can help accommodate large groups. You can even incorporate other features such as tables for fireside dinners or a speaker system for more entertainment options. Firepits can use propane, natural gas, or be wood burning.

Install Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is popular as a safety measure, but lighting also creates the opportunity to enjoy your outdoor space even when the days get shorter. Different types of lighting create different atmospheres as well. An outdoor lighting designer can help you decide what types would meet your needs.

February Landscaping Tips From Burkholder Brothers

As the chilly winter leaves us and spring draws closer, this time of year is excellent for getting your landscape ready for the new season. Some homeowners may wait until the arrival of spring to start thinking about their lawn and landscape, but we suggest starting earlier. Thinking about lawn care and any big plans you have for your landscape now will benefit you, as you will be able to enjoy your new designs or features earlier and longer throughout the year. Here are a few February landscaping tips to help you get started.

Learn About Our Turf Care Services

Our 3 February Landscaping Tips

Our February landscaping tips are meant to help you prepare your landscape for the warmer weather, milder winds, and rainy days of spring.

1. Prepare Your Lawn for Spring

The first of our February landscaping tips is to practice preventive maintenance. For example, snow and frost can cause the grass to become stiff, brittle, and susceptible to tearing if your lawn gets a lot of foot traffic while covered in snow or frost. Try to avoid walking on your lawn and use sidewalks or nearby walkways. Torn grass can cause discoloration and produces an unhealthy look.

2. Schedule Spring Maintenance with Your Landscaping Company

Soon, your lawn and plants will be in full bloom, which means that spring maintenance is needed to keep them healthy and beautiful. Use the tail-end of winter to talk with your landscaping company and discuss a schedule for spring maintenance and lawn care. Mowing, trimming, and pruning are a few of the maintenance services Burkholder offers. In spring, cleaning up the lawn or flower beds, pre-emergent weed control, fertilization, and cutting back any perennials or grasses left standing over winter are some of the essential maintenance tasks to keep your lawn healthy. Reach out to your landscaping company to discuss how to keep your landscape lush and healthy during spring.

3. Think about New Additions or Designs for Your Landscape

Another one of our February landscaping tips is to start thinking about new features or changes you would like to make to your landscape. The cold weather is an excellent time to begin planning so that those new features or structures you want can be added during the spring and enjoyed during the summer and fall. You can think about new plants to make your landscape more lively and vibrant, and opt to plant trees for extra shade. Some structures or hardscape features that you and your family could add include patios, fire pits, spas, or pavilions, all of which add practical benefits and value to your outdoor living space.

2021 Landscape Design Trends You May Want to Try

Each new year, many homeowners plan to implement changes in their landscapes to improve their properties after the long winter. As this New Year gets underway, Burkholder offers 2021 landscape design trends to inspire you. Native plants are great options for people who want to bring new, low-maintenance plant life into their lawns. Incorporating indoor technology and accouterments will make outdoor living spaces more usable year-round. Smart, interconnected technology helps keep your property pristine and beautiful while reducing maintenance and saving you time and money. Here are a few landscape design trends to try out in 2021.

View Our Portfolios!

Native Plants

One of the significant trends we have noticed over the years is more homeowners opting for native plants in their landscapes and this trend appears to continue as with 2021 landscape design trends. Native plants offer several benefits for you and your landscape.

  • Because native plants have adapted to their respective natural environments, your landscape can maintain its beauty through the entire year, through heavy rain, snow and hot summers.
  • Native plants are also more likely to resist locally occurring pests and diseases.

Consider adding native plants to your gardens and landscape to make your property more beautiful with less maintenance.

Bringing the Indoors To the Outdoors

Another growing trend among homeowners is the use of their backyard to unwind and relax, bringing the comforts of the indoors to the natural beauty of the outdoors. Turn your backyard into a private getaway with some outdoor furniture. You can also turn your outdoor space into an entertainment area, with a pergola or pavilion to protect you from the elements and enable you to add other items such as sound systems or televisions.

Another method of bringing the indoors outside that has been quickly rising in popularity is an outdoor kitchen. Some of the outdoor kitchen and dining features homeowners want include:

  • Grills
  • Dining tables
  • Pizza ovens
  • Firepits

These outdoor features also add value to your home, so you and your family are getting both personal and practical value by expanding your outdoor living space.


Smart Technology

As technology grows more interconnected and makes our daily routines more convenient, one of the 2021 landscape design trends you may want to try is adding smart technology to your landscape. An example would be an intelligent irrigation system that automates irrigating your lawn and plants. The automation makes keeping your property watered convenient, while the smart technology prevents overwatering.

Some of the smart technology used in irrigation system includes the following:

  • Rain sensors
  • Local weather information linking
  • Wi-Fi sprinkler control applications for mobile devices

Another example is using smart technology in your outdoor lighting. For entertaining friends and family, you can use color-changing lights to help set the ideal atmosphere and mood for parties or family get-togethers. A smart lighting system also makes your property safer and deters trespassers by activating when the sun goes down. Both of these intelligent technologies make your properties safer, more valuable, and more usable.
