Landscaping Tips for Home Sellers

Quick ideas to increase your home’s curb appeal

While it may be hard to believe, a well maintained and attractive landscape can add up to 10 percent to the value of your home.  It’s just that simple.  Never underestimate curb appeal!

Power-wash dirty surfaces.  Clean the grunge and grime off paved surfaces as well as fences, vinyl siding and brick areas.

Repair an outdoor leaky faucet.  A leaking faucet suggests that there may be other problems elsewhere in the plumbing, and that can be an instant turn-off to buyers. Lovely-landscaped-yards-of-modern-minimalist-house-with-extensive-lawn-and-beautiful-flowers-with-dark-path-and-nice-paint-colour-combination-ideas-for-external-walls

Touch up the mulch.  A fresh layer of mulch to all garden beds spruces up your yard like little else.  The color enhances everything around it and makes plants and flowers ‘pop’.

Shape unsightly or overgrown trees and shrubs.  Nothing says neglect like overgrown trees and shrubs.  Not to mention dead branches.

Plant some instant color.  Create a splach of several colors or a more monochromatic scheme, whatever fits in with the look of your home by planting annuals.
