Is Your Lawn Green?

Kaplan-cropped-front-elevation-686x288
How green is your lawn? Poorly manicured lawns, overgrown shrubs, weeds and dead plants can easily ruin a sale. In fact, realtors have said that clients will often never make it in the house if the property has a dead lawn in the front yard landscape. Staging your landscaping can be just as important as staging your house inside. Before putting your house on the market, turn up the water on your lawn and shrubs and fertilize. A green lawn can add some “green” to your sale.

In addtion to greening up your landscaping, it’s also very important to trim all overgrown shrubs, remove dead plants and weeds. If you use a commercial weed control spray be sure to use it at least two weeks prior to your house’s listing date. Commerical weed controls often have dyes and strong odors, you don’t want to deter buyers with a strong chemical odor as they step out out of their car.

Do you have any pots by your front door or on your back patio? Wherever you have pots, fill them with colorful, fresh, seasonal flowers. This shows potentional buyers that you are attentive to your landscape all four seasons (and attentive to taking care of your house). Using “pops of color” in the front yard can attract attention of people driving by and attract buyers!
