Curb appeal can be the most important aspect when trying to attract buyers. As
temperatures rise and spring begins to waltz in, take advantage of the warmth and set
yourself and your family to work in the yard to improve your home’s curb appeal. Some
1. Create an immaculate space –
During the winter, things can get out of hand in your
yard. Plants and trees can look overgrown or decrepit, so cut them back and prune them
to perfection. This will allow your plants and trees to grow beautifully during the warm spring
season. Rake up or blow away dead leaves throughout your lawn and flowerbeds, since
they can create a cluttered look. Be diligent about general upkeep in your yard. Mow the
lawn and put down some fresh pine straw or mulch to clearly mark spaces in your yard,
creating a clean and manicured look.
2. Introduce some color –
Visit your local nursery to purchase some colorful, healthy looking
flowers, trees, or shrubs. This is where you get to have fun and be creative with the
color palette you want to present to your buyers. Some good choices to consider are roses,
tulips, daffodils, peonies, or crepe myrtles. Get several different colors of the
same kind of flower to keep it simple, yet vibrant. Overall, you want buyers to drive through
your neighborhood and stop in front of your home to ooh and ahhhs at the beauty of your
yard. They will only want to see more of your home.
3. Don’t neglect your backyard –
The state of your backyard can be an important selling
point of your home. You want to create an illusion of privacy, comfort, and fun all at once.
You want your buyers to imagine relaxing in the backyard, or hosting a barbecue for
friends. At the same time, you want the backyard to bring your buyers a sense of being at
one with nature. Introduce some lush greenery to this space, to really create an
atmosphere of health and serenity. Place some lawn or deck furniture in the backyard as
well to allow buyers to imagine sitting outside on a warm summer evening with their
family and friends. You may even want to designate areas in your backyard for
different kinds of gardening. Create a space for a vegetable or herb garden to give it more
character and allow buyers to imagine themselves getting creative in the backyard
gardening as well. Overall, you want your yard to help sell your home by creating a healthy
and colorful look during the spring and summer seasons
