Why should I landscape in the first place? Make your home your own – Mobile homes are also called manufactured homes for a reason. The designs can be uniform, so use landscaping as a way to make your home unique. Break up the rigid structure – Mobile homes can look very ‘boxy’. Use landscaping to introduce some fluidity to your space. Use the opportunity to improve your home – Plant shade trees at sunny windows to cool your room or grow your own herbs and vegetables! Bring some privacy to your home – Add trellis’ or fences to secure the space around your yard. Shade trees or bushes can also obscure the windows. Improve your home’s resale value – If you add tasteful and high-quality landscaping to your home it could be a major asset. Even if it is just to catch potential buyer’s eyes! Don’t just think of it as a nice-to-have, but also as an investment into your property.
