Are you gearing up to put your home on the market? Before you do, ensure that your landscaping makes a great first impression on potential buyers. Here are three great ways to spruce up your home’s landscaping before you put it on the market.
1. Keep Your Trees
Never underestimate how much mature trees contribute to your overall landscape design. They provide shade for your lawn, garden and your home and lend a more natural look to your landscaping, as if your plantings have been there forever. Before you sell your home, consult a Grafton County professional arborist to check trees for illness, potentially saving your old-growth trees for years to come.
2. Improve Your Lawn
As far as natural features in your yard, the lawn likely takes up the largest amount of space. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your yard is healthy no matter the season. In addition to performing proper maintenance in the warmer months, you’ll need to fertilize the lawn in the fall to properly prepare the grass for the cold winter months. When the weather warms up again, you’ll give your grass a major head start.
3. Add Focal Points
Whether you have a large yard or a small yard, some natural focal points can make your landscaping memorable and wow potential buyers before they even come through your front door. There are many options for adding focal points to your garden, but the classic garden arch is a feature that looks attractive in any yard. You can find a gorgeous pre-made option at your local hardware store or nursery, or make your own for a custom look. When planted with flowering vines, it creates a very stunning visual effect.
Give your landscaping a cosmetic upgrade and you’ll generate interest among potential buyers. By following these tips, you’ll entice buyers to take a closer look at your home and what it has to offer.
