The Top Backyard Features that Boost Home Value


Your backyard should be your private oasis where you can relax or entertain whenever you like. If you’re thinking about making upgrades to your backyard, you may want to consider features that will not only provide a beautiful and welcoming outdoor living space, but will also boost your home’s value. Some of the most popular backyard features include:


A pergola can create a beautiful partially shaded area in your backyard, and the return on investment (ROI) of one of these structures is around 50%. This can change depending upon several factors, foremost being the material with which the pergola is built. For instance, the finish on a wooden pergola may start to decline after several years of weathering, resulting in a decrease in its value, whereas a pergola made of extruded aluminum will resist wear and tear over time, which will boost value.


These fully enclosed structures increase your home’s living space and will allow you to enjoy natural light and expansive views of the outdoors without contending with harsh elements. There are two different types of sunrooms; three-season rooms that can be used when the weather is mild and all-season (or four-season) rooms that are engineered to provide comfort all year long. With either sunroom you can expect an ROI of around 50% and your home’s overall value to go up roughly 4-6%.


Patios are one of the most sought-after backyard amenities, and well-designed ones are not only estimated to provide 8-10% home value, but also earn an ROI of over 80%. This is especially true if your patio is covered, as homeowners will be able to use it while enjoying much-needed shelter from sun and rain.

Fire Pit

One of the most hassle-free ways to add value to your home is by adding a fire pit. Most estimates see homeowners recouping 78% of the costs associated with building a fire pit, especially one with natural gas running to it.

Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchens allow you to bring the party outside! They are incredibly popular home additions, and in fact, homes with this feature can potentially see an ROI between 100% and 200%. They can be built underneath a structure such as a pergola or patio cover, or even inside of a sunroom to really stay insulated from the elements.
