Investing Wisely: Backyard Renovations & Upgrades

Looking to transform your outdoor space? One upgrade a homeowner might love for themselves but may not pay off is an outdoor kitchen. While rising in popularity in some areas, creating a backyard galley to dine alfresco with the family comes at a cost. HomeAdvisor [SS1] reports a starting price around $2,700 but can add up to $16,000. Whether this fun and functional addition is worth the investment depends on if the total value is justified by your expenditures.

A final backyard revamp that may seem advantageous but could be undesirable is over-the-top landscaping. A backyard oasis filled with trees, comfy seating and the joys of nature can be the escape every homeowner wishes for … except when it’s overdone.
