How Your Lawn is Affecting Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Are you thinking of selling your home? If you are, you want to give a potential buyer the best first impression possible; especially since it’s been observed that homebuyers can decide if they are interested within the first eight seconds of seeing a home.

So, you’ve taken all of the steps to begin getting your home ready to show potential buyers. You’ve made all of the beds, painted everything from the trim to the walls and maybe even staged the entire house to look extra comfortable and happily lived-in, but what about your lawn? A well landscaped yard and kept up lawn could increase the value of your property by 10 to 15 percent.house exterior

Here are a few tips to ensure your lawn is sale-ready and looking its absolute best:

1. Avoid too many lawn ornaments. We know you might have a darling lawn gnome collection, however it’s best to keep your home looking neutral while trying to sell.

2.  Pull your weeds and plant some lovely annuals that will look beautiful all year. Don’t let your garden fall victim to looking drab.

3.  Keep your lawn looking green and healthy. Regular fertilization, mulching and cutting are the best ways to make sure your lawn is immaculate for any potential buyers who may come knocking.
