Orlando, FL, June 13, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Selling a home can be a difficult task in this economy. That is why the care and upkeep of a lawn is so crucial. A crisp, fresh lawn can be the main reason why home buyers are drawn to a certain Florida home, and ultimately, it will increase the chances of selling it.
Unfortunately, many homeowners overlook the curb appeal their lawn has on future buyers. Simply put, the better a lawn is cared for means the better the impression it will receive. Buyers are essentially judging a house by its cover because they translate a well-landscaped yard into the rest of the house being just as impeccable.
A yard that hasn’t been cared for decreases the value of the home in the eyes of the buyer. Yet, a home’s value can increase up to 12% if it has been landscaped properly. Grass should be cut at the right height. It’s recommended not to cut more than ⅓ the length of the blade of grass. Also, leaving a lawn clippings after mowing instead of bagging them is vital. There are valuable nutrients in the clippings that are left behind. This is a natural fertilizer and allows a yard to maintain a lush, green appearance.
Mowing is only half the battle because edging and trimming are just as important. Edging must be done with an appropriate edger, not a weed whacker. Trimming plants and bushes is critical as well. They may be time consuming and tedious, but it’s the little things that can bring a yard together. These are necessary because they both give yards a polished look that increase the curb appeal.
