LANDSCAPING TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR HOME’S CURB APPEAL

How does it feel when you walk into a home whose landscaping doesn’t look attractive? We both know that most of our judgement is usually based on the cover or rather the first impressions. Even when selling a home, the first thing that will either make a potential buyer choose to buy or not buy your home is the first impression. Here are some tips that will help you rejuvenate your landscaping and boost curb appeal. 

Plant Green Grass

You’ll agree to the fact that your lawn makes up most part of your yard or landscaping. Even if there are some trees, there’s ground surface where you play around with your kids as you enjoy the shade. First of all, make sure this area is covered with green grass. It doesn’t stop there. There more to do when it comes to taking care and maintaining the grass. Water, fertilize and mow the grass regularly to keep the lawn in good shape. This might help you sell your home faster when the time comes.

Be a Bush Barber

You know what a barber does. The same way you’re responsible enough to make sure your kid’s hair is shaved and well kempt at the barber shop, make sure any overgrown bushes or trees are trimmed and pruned. Overgrown tree branches and bushes can attract pests hence the need to trim them off. 

Heed the Weeds

Of course you’ve done a good job putting up a garden or a flower bed. However, you must commit to maintaining your garden by removing any weeds that pop up. Whether you use a spray product or just use your hands to pull then, it’s all your choice. Getting rid of weeds helps your plants and grass to grow healthy without competing for water and nutrients. 

Prune off dead or diseased bushes

Well, you need to inspect your plants, flowers and bushes and prune off the dead or dying ones. Once you’ve removed any of the plants, replace them with another healthy plant. 

Clean up Plant Beds and Mulch

Let’s just start by saying you need to plant colorful flower beds. This will go a long way to add exterior curb appeal to your property. However, it’s important that you make sure the flower or plant beds are not in disarray. Adding a layer of mulch can help to refresh the appearance and look of your plant beds. You may consider hiring a landscaping professional to help in coming up with a landscaping plan for your home.
