When That Big Backyard Might Just Be Too Big!

Do you want a backyard where your son can practice football…with his whole team?  Do you want to be able to throw a ball and have your dog run out of energy on the first “fetch”?  Do you want to have your own garden and grow your own vegetables, fruits, berries, herbs, and anything else you can think of to cook?  If you've dreamed of a yard like this, look no further.

Whether you’re interested in a certain area for your newest home, you’ll have no problem finding the expansive yard you've always dreamed of.  A beautiful, majestic yard full of natural wonders and immense greenery, even the most inexperienced thumb will turn green at the sight of the grass and acreage their yard offers. 

Are You Prepared For A Large Yard

With real estate opportunities such as these – land in abundance – it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of finally having a large outdoor space.  Before you purchase, though, think realistically about what you’ll be able to handle.  Gardening and yard work is a wonderful source of relaxation for many people, but too much can change an exciting prospect into an arduous task if you’re not prepared to maintain it.  Do your research before you close on a home or property with several (or more) acres of greenery.  Know what kind of upkeep your new yard will need.  Make a note on whether or not the landscaping is complete or if you’ll have oodles of work to do from the get-go.  Investigate what kind of work those ideas you have for gardens and perfectly manicured grass will actually involve.  Budget for landscaping and yard work and repair just as you do for other amenities and appliances in your new home.

The Decision Weigh In

Once you've come to an informed decision about what you can handle in a yard, get excited!  You’ll certainly be able to find exactly what you’re looking for.  Properties all throughout Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and Nampa boast beautifully manicured yards and wide open spaces. Don’t forget the wonderful prospects you have for gorgeous gardens of flowers and vegetables alike.  After you’re in your new home, you’ll just need to get planting and then look forward to enjoying the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor!
