Consumers preferences for plant size, type of plant material and design sophistication in residential landscaping


Consumers preferences for plant size, type of plant material and design sophistication in residential landscaping

How much value do consumers place on a good landscape? Self-selected attendees to a Detroit, Michigan (USA), flower show indicated that plant size was the most important factor in the perceived value of a landscape. Holding other factors equal, increasing from the smallest size plant generally available for installation to the largest size defined in our study increased perceived home value by 5.0%. Design sophistication was almost as important as size.
