Land Improvement

The addition of buildings or beauty to a piece of real estate. A land improvement can be as simple as a new coat of paint or a better maintained lawn, or it may involve something more complicated like tearing down an existing house and building a mansion. In any case, a land improvement increases the value of the property. It is sometimes simply called an improvement.
