Gearing up for a big move and looking to make your home buyer-friendly? Remember: how you present the outside of your home is just as important as the inside. Your landscaping gives off the first impression! Below are some quick tips to help increase your home’s curb appeal.
- Put down a fresh layer of mulch: Mulch can easily fade or become dirtied after a long outdoor season. In order to make your flowers and other greenery pop, a new layer of mulch can increase contrast and make everything look tidy.
- Trim overgrown trees and shrubs: Nothing screams unkempt like overgrown trees, shrubs or bushes. Taking the few extra minutes to trim down the overgrowth and shape the bushes, will make your outdoor area look exponentially cleaner!
- Power-wash grimy surfaces: Things like brick walkways, wooden fences and water-fixtures are bound to fall victim to the elements over time. To avoid an aged appearance, take a power washer to these surfaces to kick off the stubborn dirt.
- Brighten it up: If you’re feeling like your landscaping is looking drab, brighten it up with some vibrant flowers. There’s nothing like a pop of colour to draw attention toward your home!
