The appearance of your lawn has a big impact on the curb appeal of your home and property. When you put your home up for sale, one of the most important things you can do is make your lawn as attractive as possible. If you're not good with lawn care, call a landscape company for help. Here are some things they might do to make your yard appealing and more enticing to buyers.
Weed And Mow
Don't wait until the last minute to call a landscape company for help. It might take a few weeks of mowing and nurturing your grass to get it in good shape. The company can mow and trim on a set schedule until your home is sold so your property is always at its best for shoppers who drive by your home.
Add Attractive Plants
A few plants and flowers in your yard can add a lot of beauty. You'll want varieties that don't need much care if you don't have time to tend to the plants. Flowers add color that livens up your property, but even shrubs and green plants can make the area around your home more attractive, especially if the area is edged and mulched, too.
Trim Tree Branches
You'll probably want trees with low branches trimmed so tree branches don't block the view of your house from the street and so low branches don't scrape against potential buyers when they walk to your front door.
Potential shoppers should admire how well your yard has been cared for rather than make mental checklists about all the yard work that needs to be done.
Fertilize And Seed Your Lawn
One reason you want to start caring for your lawn weeks before your home is put up for sale is so the landscape company has time to bring your yard back to life if it has bare or brown spots. They may need to put down grass seeds or sod to grow grass in thin areas or add fertilizer and weed killer.
The important steps are to get your lawn and trees in good shape, but you might also want a walkway, edging around trees, or several flower beds put in. There are many things a landscape company can do to get your home ready for the market, and you don't need to spend a lot of money. When your yard looks attractive, buyers may be more interested in viewing your home, so working with a landscape company could pay off in a quicker sale.
