Selling a home can be a dramatic event for most people, the stress and frustration mounts from one prospect to another. Realtors will often mention “Curb Appeal” which simply means how well your home will look when someone first drives up. Here are a few simple and easy landscaping tips you can do yourself to improve the curb appeal of your home.
- Fertilize your lawn – A lush, green lawn will always add curb appeal. Purchase, rent or borrow a broadcast spreader and in 1 easy application your lawn will “green up” in a few weeks.
- Add Color – Plant colorful flowers to accent areas of your lawn. For about a dollar a plant, you can add an amazing amount of beauty to your lawn in a single afternoon.
- Shrubs – Consider establishing your lawn perimeter with shrubs. For a couple hundred dollars, you can add evergreen shrubbery that will add beauty and boundaries.
- Trim, Trim, Trim – A well-trimmed lawn will always turn heads. Cut those dead limbs from your trees and trim up that jungle of shrubbery that has been neglected for years. In some cases, it may be better to remove and replant overgrown shrubs.
