Boost Curb Appeal with 3 Simple Landscaping Tips!
Have you ever wondered why some homes sell fast in San Diego, while others seem to sit on the market for months and months? I know how frustrating this can be. Especially if you’ve replaced carpet, painted rooms, added a soaker tub, installed new cabinets or paid to have your home professionally staged and photographed.
If potential buyers roll up to your house to find that it’s covered in daylilies and crabgrass, overgrown hedges, and neglected mulch beds, those buyers aren’t even going to make it inside to see how beautiful it is. They’ll wonder what else hasn’t been taken care of.
The truth is, landscaping your San Diego property is essential to selling it for maximum value.
Ideally, the time to get started cleaning up your lawn is about a month before you plan on putting your house on the market. To help you get things into tip-top shape, here are my 3 favorite landscaping tips I give my sellers:
1. Check your trees and hedges. Remove dead trees from your property as well as any tree limbs that are overgrown. You’ll also want to make sure that your hedges are trimmed. Varieties like boxwoods and holly usually need a trim about twice a year, so these are things you should keep in mind before listing.
2. Mulch your garden beds. An instagram worthy home always includes fresh mulch. Choose a black, brown, or red mulch for maximum contrast against your flowers and foliage. And be sure to get rid of all the weeds!
3. Plant flowers for a pop of color. Planting beautiful and bright flowers is one of the easiest things you can do to make your landscaping look intentional and well-maintained. It will also help it stand out from the road!
What makes landscaping so awesome, is that it’s not only one of the best ways sellers can update their curb appeal, but it’s something most people can do on their own!
A Saturday afternoon spent planting fresh flowers, mulching, and weeding, can immediately increase the value of your home. Of course, if you’d rather hire someone to handle it for you, I have a list of the best landscapers in San Diego. Just reach out, and I will send you some options!
