If you are looking to put your home on the market in the near future, the importance of a beautiful landscape around your property should not be underestimated. If your existing landscape is in bad shape, that’s ok. At Capitol Moving & Storage, in addition to helping you with your moving and storage needs, we wanted to share some things to consider when landscaping as prep for putting your home on the market.
Consider Partnering with a Landscape Designer
For many homeowners, they don’t have much of a green thumb. So, they don’t have a clue of where to begin when it comes to landscaping around their property. If you fall in this category, consider partnering with a landscape designer nearby. These landscape designers can provide their own recommendations and help design the perfect outdoor landscape for your property. Additionally, they have landscaping contacts in the area, making it easy to get your landscape designed and implemented in a timely manner so that putting your home on the market isn’t delayed.
Focus on the Simple Projects
If you don’t mind getting dirty and partaking in some manual labor, you can consider taking on some simple, inexpensive landscaping projects on your own. First and foremost, cleaning up your property of weeds, debris and leaves will help provide the look of a well-maintained yard. Another easy project you can take on is to mulch your flower and tree beds. If you’d rather not deal with mulch, pine straw is another affordable option. If your yard has a lot of bushes, it’s critical that you go ahead and prune and trim these bushes as you prep for putting the home on the market. Overgrown bushes will have a negative impact on the overall look of your landscape, and the bushes may highlight the fact that the new owner will have to keep them trimmed regularly as well. To add some color to your landscape, consider planting some colorful flowers around your yard.
First impressions go a very long way when you put your house on the market. Before the potential buyers even enter your home, they’ll be evaluating the look of your yard as well. So, consider partnering with a landscape designer or try and tackle some simple landscaping projects on your own in preparation for putting your home on the market.
