They say that one of the best things that you can do to improve your real estate or home in the Catskills for sale is to increase its curb appeal. People buy with their eyes and their impression of your property will start from the second it comes into view on the street. So, even if you're not planning to sell your home and just want to make it as nice as possible for you and the others living there, you should put some time and effort into thinking about the outside decor as well as what it looks like inside. If you haven't been blessed with a green thumb and want to still have a garden at your home, you might be surprised at how affordable and convenient landscaping companies can be.

There are two different reasons why you might want to hire a landscaping company. The first is to help you design an outdoor space. You might have just moved to a new home or want to add a pond with a waterfall to your yard. Professional landscape design can cost you anywhere between fifty dollars an hour and $50,000 to design and build an entire backyard oasis. If you just want them to help design the space but want to do all of the work on your own then you might be able to find someone in your area who can do that for a few hundred dollars, depending on the size of the space and what you're looking for.

The second reason is for maintenance of your current outdoor space. You might have the desire to have a lush lawn and garden but not the time or skill to keep it in its best condition. There are many landscaping companies that specialize in everything from mowing large lawns to working on huge English gardens with prized roses in them. Highly rated companies charge around eighty dollars an hour for landscaping but if you're just looking for someone to do some simple work like cleaning the deck and mowing the lawn then you will likely be able to find someone who is a little more affordable. There are many neighborhoods when you can even find a high school kid who is making a summer business out of doing this sort of thing and it could leave you more time to enjoy your outdoor space.
