Survey Says: Americans Love their Yards and they are Important to a Home’s Resale Value

4/19/2016 5:00:00 AM

April is National Lawn Care Month​ so it is a great time to think about what your lawn and landscape do for you. Even in the age of the smartphone and T.V. show binge watching, the love affair with the American yard is not over.

According to an online survey commissioned by the National Association of Landscape Professionals​ and conducted by Harris Poll in May 2015, eighty-three percent of Am​​ericans think having a yard is important. Here are a few insights about the value of our lawns and backyards.

Your neighborhood's landscaping is important. Americans (91%) want to live in an area where they can see or walk to nice landscaping. So if you want the best chance of increasing the home prices in your neighborhood, make sure the landscaping looks good.

Nice landscaping helps to sell your house. Eighty-four percent say that the quality of a home's landscaping would affect their decision about whether or not to buy. Great neighborhood landscaping helps, but it isn't enough; yours needs to look good too.

Your neighbors care what your yard looks like. Seventy-one percent think it is important that their neighbors have well-maintained yards. Perhaps "good landscaping makes good neighbors" should be the new adage.

We want to enjoy our yards. Seventy-five percent of people feel that it is important to spend time outside in their yards.

Despite common misperceptions, even Millennials want to spend time in their yards. Seventy-five percent of Millennials (18–34 year olds) think spending time outside in their yards is important.

People want help with their landscape. A large majority of Americans (67%) agree that professional landscape help would allow them to have a nicer yard.

So, this April, don't take your yard for granted: make the most of it and it will return many financial and emotional benefits. ​

At Ariens, we agree that the condition of your yard can improve your home's resale value, and your overall summertime satisfaction. Now is the perfect time to prep your yard for the upcoming season of patio parties and barbeques.

​​​​​The Ariens® Max Zoom® Series​ puts commercial-grade mowing power and durability in the hands of the residential consumer. Purchase one in April 2016, and you'll receive a $200 rebate at authorized Ariens ​dealers. Click here to find a dealer near you. ​

The fully-welded, tubular steel frame sets the Max Zoom apart from its competition. While other residential mowers incorporate multi-piece frames, the Max Zoom is built on a single piece — welded at every joint for added long-lasting strength and stability.​

A commercial-style, 10-gauge steel deck adds reliability and strength. Designed with reinforced cast-iron spindles, a three-eighth-inch reinforced leading edge and a four-point professional deck hanging system, operators can get a professional cut with this residential zero-turn.

The machine features a Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100 transmission, designed for high performance and commercial quality, for increased torque and load capacity with less vibration and better control. Coupled with a 22, 23, or 25 horsepower KOHLER® 7000 Pro Twin or Twin engine, depending on the model, the Max Zoom can tackle grass at up to 8mph with unmatched power 

With nine cutting positions, ranging from one inch to five inches, every job can be done with precision. Enhancements like fully-adjustable control arms with three positions and a six-gallon fuel capacity mean operators can get the job done comfortably and quickly. Available with a 48-, 52- or 60-inch deck, the Max Zoom can tackle any residential job with commercial quality. For more information, visit
