With spring so close on the horizon, it's a great time to rethink your landscaping strategy. If you're planning on selling your home, greeting potential buyers with outstanding curb appeal is the ideal first impression that could mean better offers. Here are a few tips to help you use gardens and other landscaping details to your advantage:
Don't shy away from color
To make your landscape pop, don't be afraid to play with color scheme. You can go for an array of hues or stick with one palette. Be sure to consider the colors of your home and how you can create an eye-catching and pleasing design.
Show off your edibles
Have you been working tirelessly on a vegetable garden? If so, now is the time to show it off. You can entice prospective buyers by showing them the success you've had with your garden by making it a featured stop in a tour or arranging your produce for them to see or taste. Veggie gardens are sustainable and money savers, so they're all the rage right now.
Keep it hydrated (and green)
Nothing looks sadder than a dried out garden, so be sure to replenish your beds with plenty of water. You'll get bonus points with buyers if you use high-efficiency water nozzles, which use less water but do a fantastic job of hydrating gardens.
Gardening can get messy, but if you're hosting an open house, your landscape should be pristine. If possible, you should power-wash any concrete or stone surfaces on your lawn. That cleanse can make these pathways look brand new and impress your potential buyers. At the very least, be sure to trim hedges and bushes and clean out any irrigation system.
