Russ Whitney gives-Sellers Ideas for Landscaping

The first thing buyers look at when they pull up to your home is the big picture -the house, the yard, the trees, the flowers.Explain that you're selling your home and you need help with curb appeal.Many sellers struggle with the costs, the decisions, and the time it takes to market their homes.

Most of the landscaping isn't permanent, you should strongly consider putting it in the marketing budget.You can do some of the work yourself or you can get help. Russ Whitney put forth some of these five jobs which help you make the most of your home's drive-up appeal.

1. Get Rid Of Anything Dead.

Dead leaves, flowers, and trees do nothing for your curb appeal. As you finish, you'll see blank areas. Fill these in with fresh flowers, small bushes, potted plants or yard art.

2. Cut And Weed The Grass

If you mow your own lawn, make sure it's freshly mowed every week. Pull or spray weeds so the texture of the grass will be more pleasing.

3. Replace Or Hide Leggy Bushes

Nothing makes a front entry look more dated than bushes with longer legs than torsos. Plant small bushes in front. You can also cover a lot of blank areas with mulch, wood chips or gravel.

4. Improve Both Hardscapes And Softscapes

Bring color and vitality to the entry with potted plants and flowers.Decorative stone, tile, brick, concrete or wood can add a lot of appeal to the softer elements. Landscaping doesn't have to end at the porch.

5. Light The Way

Landscape Lighting provides security as well as spotlight what you want to call attention to.Lanterns to line the walk, or the occasional uplight for the trees can have a glamorous effect on the exterior of your home.
