Everyone knows that great curb appeal will reside in with buyers as first impression, and you may not get a second chance to wow potential buyers. With newer neighbourhoods being developed, many properties lack the curb appeal. Therefore a good way to stand out is to spruce up the front of your home by doing some landscaping. Regardless if you just moved in or are planning to resale, bottom line is that everyone will benefit from it. The one thing to always remember as a seller is, what group are you targeting? It should not be a surprise to you that a well maintained property and neighbourhood are key factors that will come into play when pricing your home.

Choosing the right plants for your project
What most people would recommend are perennials, they are the ones that require the least amount of work and they come back each season. Although, it is a bit more complicated, some plants require sun light and others will not survive if exposed to direct sun all day.
First, choose your project area and notice the amount of time the area is exposed to direct sun. For example, if your house faces west, you will most likely have sun in front of your house starting around noon until late in the evening more or less depending on what is around your property.
You can hire professionals and let them do their work or if you have a green thumb go to a plant nursery and ask them what would work best for your project. They will help you choose plants and flowers that will bloom every year.
