Architectural and Landscape Architects for Contemporary Not Ageing Architecture
Studies show that landscaping is one of the best residential investments, even when it's time to sell a home. A swimming pool (which is a substantial outlay) added to your residence only returns 20 to 50 % of its cost when a property is sold, a kitchen renovation 75 to 100% and landscaping 100 to 200% and possibly more!!
