A lot of buyers problem residential landscapingwill know exactly what to look for inside of a house when they’re househunting. However, the interior isn’t the only space you should be concerned about. It’s important that you look for potential issues around the exterior of the property as well. The following are a few potential landscaping problems to look out for when on the hunt for a new home:

  • Landscaping features too close to the house – Having bushes and flowers next to the house might seem aesthetically pleasing, but it also means that insects, such as termites and carpenter ants, will have an easier time getting into your home.
  • Trees are too close to the house – If any trees on the property seem like they are too close to the house — or if any of its branches reach too close to the roof — take note. If any branches were to break off during a storm, they could cause serious damage to your roof or siding.
  • The landscape slopes down to the house – If you notice that the ground slopes down towards the house, it’s a bad sign. It means that rainwater is more likely to gather near the foundation, where it could cause serious water damage and where it could potentially leak into the house.
  • Too many landscape features – You might be impressed by the amount of features that a landscape has, from the flowers and bushes to the gardens and water features, but remember — the more features a landscape has, the more work is required to maintain the landscape.

These are a few things that you should look for when evaluating the landscape of a property.
