If you are getting ready to take advantage of the hot real estate market by listing your home, there are some landscaping tasks you should take care of beforehand. Investing in your landscaping can reflect in the value of your home and ensure that you get the best possible return for all of the work that you have put into your house. What tasks should you take care of before you place your home on the market?

5 Landscaping Tasks You Should Do Before Listing Your Home

  1. Touch up any mulch around the base of trees or shrubs. Mulch helps yards to look crisp and polished, and the color of mulch can help the color of flowers and greenery to pop.
  2. Add seasonal pops of color with annuals, hanging baskets, or other plants. Fresh flowers help give a property more charm and personality, and they can make a big difference when it comes to the curb appeal of your home.
  3. Have your trees and shrubs pruned so that they are free from any branches that are dead, dying, or diseased. These things will be spotted by a home inspector, and they can take away from the value of your home. Pruning also helps to make your house look like it has been well maintained over the years.
  4. If there are water features as part of your landscaping, you should make sure that they are in proper working order and clean. If fountains are filled with leaves or your sprinklers will not turn on, it can make a bad impression.
  5. Power wash hard surfaces around your landscaping, like paths and paved areas. A power washer will remove any dirt or debris, and it can even be used on your siding too.
