Landscaping to Boost Curb Appeal

Are you getting ready to put your home on the market? You’re probably going on a cleaning spree indoors, getting every surface polished and every piece of furniture in place. But what about the exterior of your house? Curb appeal is as important a factor as any when it comes to attracting potential buyers to your house; it may even be the most important. The outside of your home gives house hunters their first impression of the property, for better or worse. Make it for better by using landscaping to boost your curb appeal.


A garden is one element that can elevate a good home to a great home. Beautiful flowers in a variety of colors will not only draw people’s attention, but they will also liven up the front of your house, particularly helpful if the exterior is a uniform, neutral color such as white or beige. Use a variety of blooms and ornamental shrubs to create an extra special garden for your home.


You should also consider either installing or cleaning out a water feature. A new water feature will add visual interest and significantly increase your home’s value. If you already have an existing water feature, consider giving it a good scrubbing to get rid of any algae or mud that has accumulated to make it look like new again.


Simple landscaping techniques, such as mowing the lawn, raking up dry and dead leaves, and power washing exterior surfaces and walkways are also top-notch ways to boost your home’s curb appeal. A clean, orderly, and beautiful home is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser when it comes time to sell.
