Landscaping is a huge part of curb appeal and home seller should not forget that the appearance of the outside of the home is just as important as the inside. Prospective buyers get a first impression as soon as they pull up, and it could impact how they feel about he home even before they enter it. Everyone loves manicured grounds and most prefer low maintenance yards. People like to envision themselves having their morning coffee on the patio and may weigh in on how welcome the entrance feels and how inviting the front of the house is. This is a good time to put away your scattered backyard toys, landscaping supplies and anything that looks old and unused.
A landscaping investment will give sellers a significant return in home value, however, homeowners should still be cautious with their spending.
