Landscaping Tips

Staging the outside is just as important as the inside. Here are some tips I picked up from REALTOR Magazine

1.Light up the outside

Good lighting allows buyers to see a home and also adds drama. Sellers should use low-voltage lamps to highlight branches of specimen trees, a front door, walk and corners of the house. However, less is better.

2. Use decorative architectural elements.
A new mailbox, planted window boxes. Colors should complement the landscape and home. Be careful not to overdo it.

3. Maintain a perfect lawn.
A perfectly manicured a lush lawn demonstrates tender loving care.

4. Add splashes of color.
Try and incorporate plantings that bloom in different seasons. Having color throughout your lawn and landscape during all seasons will ensure a beautiful looking yard.
