When selling your home, curb appeal is everything. Keep reading for our top landscape ideas that are sure to get buyer attention.
Clean up Your Concrete
Potential buyers will undoubtedly examine the quality and cleanliness of your concrete driveway and walkways. If your concrete is dirty but in good condition, consider purchasing or renting a power washer to make it look good as new. You can repair cracks in your concrete with a kit from your local hardware store; however, big cracks or substantial damage should be taken care of by a professional.
Get Your Lawn in Order
When considering your lawn, start by mowing and edging it to know precisely what you are working with. If your yard is yellow or spotty, make a plan to water and fertilize your lawn so that it will be green by the time you begin showing your house. If your lawn is beyond repair, consider laying fresh sod, which will not only make your yard look beautiful but also be a selling point for potential buyers.
Consider a Rock Garden
If a grass yard isn’t your style, one of our favorite landscape ideas is to add some style and texture to your yard with a rock garden. You won’t have to fuss with any watering or mowing, or control for harsh environmental factors, as rock gardens are easy to maintain. Additionally, your rock garden will make your yard feel larger and look great year-round.
Spruce up Your Flower Beds
Your flower beds add dimension and color to your yard. If you have bare or dead flower beds, selling your home is the perfect time to give them an overhaul. By adding various colors, sizes, and types of flowers, you can create a beautiful display that will breathe new life into your yard.
Add a Focal Point
If your yard lacks pizzazz, consider adding a focal point such as a statue, sculpture, or water feature. A new focal point can draw the attention of potential buyers and make a typical suburban yard feel like a zen oasis.
