Sell Your Home Sooner with These Landscaping Tips

Curb appeal is essential when selling a home. Many potential buyers will drive by properties they’re interested in before arranging to view it with an agent.  That is why maintaining a well groomed lawn and landscaping proves to help increase your selling price as well as reduce the amount of time it is on the market.Give potential buyers the first impression that you care for your home; therefore, other areas are not neglected.

Remove Dead Plants & Pull Weeds
Keep your garden in top shape. Weeds and dead plants may give buyers the impression that the rest of the home isn’t maintained. Pull weeds, and clear away any dead leaves and plants. \

Mow the Lawn
Keep your lawn at a good height(5 to 9cm) where it isn’t cut too short so that the sun can scortch the grass, or too long that it looks overgrown.
Use a lawn trimmer around garden beds and edges, as well as lawn that meets your driveway and sidewalk.

Trim Hedges
The way to get a good-looking hedge always starts with the right tool. With an ergonomically balanced and lightweight hedge trimmer, creating clean cuts and a smooth line will be easy.

Add Colour
Replace overgrown bushes with leafy plants and colourful annuals.Surround bushes and trees with black or brown bark mulch, this will give a rich feel to the yard. Potted plants are another way to add a splash of colour and can be taken with you when you move.

Adding mulch not only makes your garden beds or trees look polished and landscaped, it helps the soil conserve moisture and prevents weeds.
