Gardening Season and Curb Appeal
Gardening season is well among us, with the frost ending we can finally start planting seeds and taking our plants outdoors to enjoy as much sun as possible.
Trying to Sell?
Curb appeal is a home buyers first impression and many have already made up their mind about a home, before ever setting foot inside. With spring selling season among us the market can become very flooded and overwhelming, creating an eye-catching curb appeal is one great way to ensure your house will be noticed, here are some easy curb appeal tips!
Flowers and Garden
Strategically placed flowers are one of the quickest and easiest ways to seriously boost curb appeal.
Whether your home has cool blue siding, bright red brick or crisp, creamy stucco, flower beds or potted floral arrangements add a pop of color that immediately alters the emotional perception of your property.
Brighten up sheltered spots in your landscape with, colorful shade plants that come back year after year. Shade perennials can make masked areas the greatest points of interest in your garden.
Revamp the Exterior
Refresh the steps, pathways and siding with the help of a power washer or garden hose.
Proper mowing, irrigation and feeding practices are the best possible for weed prevention.
Remove any weeds in the garden now so they don’t find their way into your lawn. If your lawn has bare spots, fill them in now with sod or seed so weeds don’t sprout and get a foothold.
All you need is a little bit of elbow grease to freshen up your landscaping. Trim bushes into eye pleasing shapes with rounded edges and give every plant in your garden enough room to shine while still being a part of the overall landscaping picture. Get out your shears and trim up bushes and plants that have overgrown their spaces.
Picking up a few bags of mulch at a garden center is a great way to add instant curb appeal to your landscaping. Mulch not only looks great but it also provides essential help to plants by helping to retain water as well as keeping weeds at bay.
