Landscaping Ideas that Can Help Sell Your Home

The landscaping is often the forgotten part of the house to fix when selling your home. This is a pity because good landscape design can significantly increase the value of a property. That’s why you should never underestimate the importance of well-maintained landscape.

Here are some simple landscaping ideas that could increase the value of your property and help you sell it quicker.

1. Make your landscape pop

Adding brightly-coloured plants can create visual points of interest at the entry to your home. You can add pots of bright flowering annuals or perennials such as pansies and daises which are inexpensive. Use colours that  complement each other, or use the same shades of flowers for a high-impact monochrome effect.

2. Prune just right

This easy landscaping idea will not only make your garden look neat and tidy but can accentuate the architecture of your property. Don’t get carried away too much with pruning, you just want to prune the right amount to achieve a better look.

3. Clean up the lawn

A brown, overgrown and patchy lawn can make your landscape look unkempt. That’s why you want to make your lawn look lush. Make sure to keep to a regular watering and mowing schedule. If your lawn is almost beyond repair, you can hire a professional to liven up your lawn.

4. Power wash the exterior

This simple landscaping idea can make any grimy and dirty surface look brand new. You can rent a power washer to clean up fences, bricks, vinyl siding, the driveway, or any hard surface that you think needs cleaning up.   

5. Add exterior lights

Some homebuyers may want to visit your home in the evening. To make sure your property looks attractive even at night you can add low voltage lighting along the driveway, the sidewalks or near the landscaped area. Lights can make your property look interesting and inviting as well.

6. Apply mulch

Mulching your garden beds is an easy, quick, and inexpensive way to make your landscape look tidy and well-maintained. Apply a fresh layer of mulch like a cedar mulch to your entire garden bed to enhance the contrast of the surrounding plants and to also make the colour green pop.
