Spring is right around the corner… Thankfully!

If you are thinking about selling your house, it’s time to also start thinking about updating your landscaping.

Are the hedges overgrown? Are the paths and walkways in good shape? Does your home have “curb appeal” to potential buyers driving past? Is your lawn in good condition?

Neglected areas can create doubt and worry the moment a potential owner sees the property.  Landscape Ontario has posted a great article on quick and easy steps to creating curb appeal and ultimately getting more money for your home.

Step One: Don’t cut down trees

Step Two: Add Plants

Step Three: Get rid of the brown

Step Four: Look for the wow factor

If you aren’t sure where to begin, or feel overwhelmed by trying to create that curb appeal “WOW” factor, feel free to contact us for ideas and suggestions.)
