By definition, home landscaping, means arranging or modifying the features of the grounds around a home to improve the property from the standpoint of aesthetic ideas and or practical usage. Ideas for practical improvements should not be hard to arrive at. You yourself have been living and gardening on your property, now is the time to address any deficiencies in the landscape itself. Perhaps you have vegetation or large trees that are overgrown, or encroaching the property lines that need to be pruned or thinned out to maximize a view? Maybe there are areas in the yard that are in need of additional drainage, for instance.
There are many other ways to improve a property aesthetically. However, since your property is now a real estate listing, we think of and address any flaws it has in terms of overall curb appeal. You are essentially re-landscaping to appeal to other people-namely potential buyers. Let’s revisit our strategy on how we can actually increase the perception of value with the strongest impact on the salability of the home through simple landscaping projects. Potential buyers may not share your overall personal tastes, however, they do appreciate low maintenance home landscapes, year round visual interests and a focal point, which can be accented with a well executed water feature. Sometimes, color, noise created by a fountain and pruning of trees can offset a buyers objection. This is the time to address hardscape as well as softscape. Hardscape consists of the inanimate elements of landscaping including patios, supporting walls or stone walls, tile or rock walkways, wooden decks and trellis’s. Softscape can be considered a hardscape element, but would include water fountains, overall plantings and garden accessories, adding overall interest, inclusive of any decorative pots. Color choices, consistent with landscaping already in place can be supplemented with complementing plant material which can create a dramatic visual effect. Pots should be freshly planted and any hardscape or softscape repaired, repainted or repositioned. Visually, the eye can be drawn to any feature that you would like to highlight and corresponding plant material chosen to achieve this desired result, creating an overall tranquil feeling when viewing the home.
