Landscaping is a critical feature when listing your home on the market. First impressions are the lasting impressions. When buyers come to your home their first impression will be made at the front door.  It is overlooked many times; however, it is estimated that it can add to the value of the home by up to 10%.

At Clean Cut Landscaping we recommend that you start cleaning up the front yard at least a month before potential buyers visit. If you are considering listing your home here are some tips that’ll come in handy.

Sprucing up the container plants

Flowerpots can be a good addition to your porch and doorway. There is so much you can do with flowerpots and other container plants, like placing them beside the driveway or hanging them to pillars of the porch. Container gardens are a great way to enjoy seasonal splashes of color. For container gardening mix eye-popping blooms with rustic grasses and foliage.

Applying the Mulch

Adding contrast mulch beautifies your garden and is also beneficial for your soil. It’ll enhance the color of the plants and flowers in your garden without having a very big price tag.

Make the Colors Fit in with the Season

If you want to make the contrast look even better, dot your garden with the seasonal colors, you can go for flats at our nursery, which are relatively reasonable. There are multiple options, with several different colors or different shades of the same one, different combinations can be used.  Seasonal colors make the landscape pop as well. Go for a splash of several colors or a more monochromatic scheme, whatever fits in with the look of your home.

Shape the Trees and Hedges

Shaping may take only one weekend, but it gives the impression of a well maintained and well cared for garden, an unshaped tree or hedge may give out a very bad impression of your garden, even if you’ve worked on the other parts such as flowerpots and flowerbeds.

Redesign your flowerbeds

This gives you the opportunity to experiment with your creativity, you could go for tall plants or even flats. Go for the seasonal color of your choice to come up with a good contrast with the rest of the garden, make sure the plants that don’t look good like annuals and perennials are removed for a better touch to the ambiance of your yard.
