Spring is the time of year that homeowners, whether they are considering selling their home or not, turn their thoughts to outdoor landscaping. The curb appeal of your New Orleans home can be the deciding factor on whether a potential buyer wants to schedule a showing. It can also help improve the value of your property if you’re staying put.
3 Tips to Boost Your Curb Appeal This Spring
Clean it up
There’s not much more appealing than a freshly weeded and mulched garden. Clear lines between garden and lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs, and no dead or dying plants. To keep your lawn maintained, you can contact a residential lawn mowing company or you can do it yourself.
Add some color
Whether it’s a riot of different colors or just one single accent color, flowers and flowering trees and bushes attract attention. If you already have trees in your front yard, consider tree trimming to cut off overgrown or dying branches. Add a pot of flowers near the front door or hanging baskets from the porch to draw the eye.
Back yards count too
People are all about outdoor living. Landscaping your backyard to make it just as appealing as the front means you’ll enjoy every minute spent there. Fountains, ponds, decks, fence, comfy seating, and as much attention to detail as you’ve given the front yard adds value to your home.
