10 Landscape Improvements to Help Sell Your Home – part 2

10 Landscape Improvements to Help Sell Your Home – part 2

Here are four very inexpensive ways to spruce up your lawn:

  1. Plant pansies around the mailbox.  If your mailbox has a lot of sun, Vincas are a good choice.  Read the plant labels for the proper sun, shade and moisture requirements.
  2. Re-plant pots and window boxes with seasonal flowers.  The colors should be bold but complement the house and surroundings.
  3. Keep the gutters cleaned out.  This is inexpensive and only needs to be done seasonally.  If you have a one-story house, you can probably do it yourself.  I never recommend doing it alone.  Should you fall from a ladder, someone needs to be there to help.
  4. Power wash driveways, sidewalks and patios.  The before and after effect of this can be amazing.  It just perks up everything and makes all the pretty landscaping around your home look even better.  Power washing can include gutters and it’s usually only $20 more to include them.

 

In Part 3, we’ll share more ways to improve the look of your home.
