Everyone recognizes curb appeal when they
see it. Creating curb appeal for your home is not as difficult as you may
think. It does take a little work and
some investment, but almost any house can benefit from some outside sprucing
up. Spring is here and now is the time
to make the home shine, whether for sale or to enjoy. Here are few ideas.
First, the yard has had a difficult
winter; it needs to be cleaned. Rake the
leaves that have blown in, prune shrubs and grasses, and have trees trimmed if
needed. Now that the basic clean up has
been done focus on other areas, such as planter beds.
Planter beds should be cultivated; this
loosens soil after winter compaction.
This allows water to penetrate easier.
If annuals or perennials are to be planted do it now. After weeding, cultivating and planting apply
a layer of mulch to hold in moisture and create a neat look. Now focus on the largest area of your yard
The lawn usually covers the largest part of
the yard and making it look good goes a long way to enhance that curb
appeal. Have the lawn power raked to
remove thatch build up and aerate. After
these have been done apply a fertilizer ensuring that the spring growth has the
nutrients it needs to thrive.
Enhancing a properties curb appeal will help
it sell faster and show better. It also
shows pride of ownership and tells buyers that the owner cares and takes care
of the property. If you are getting
ready to sell, work on curb appeal, it sows the seeds to a sale.
