The cultivations of gardens is an ancient practice. Streaming, colourful glazed pots of lobelia and dianthus resting majestically on the creaky old wooden stairs leading to the porch of a century home can make all the difference when trying to sell.
Curb appeal sells ! What better to say 'HELLO!' and 'WELCOME' than baskets of healthy herbs and old stone paths sprinkled with johnny-jump-ups ?
Yesterday I made a visit to my neighbourhood nursery and bought the elements of the planters I made up today. Cosmos, petunias, lobelia, marigolds, nicotiana, and others are now happily lounging outside my windows.
Have you ever noticed how houses with healthy and well-loved, colourful gardens
sell so much quicker ?
We are natural beings...our restless souls are soothed by gazing on soft petals and breathing in the scent of illusive blossoms.
Gardens help us to feel good, when we feel good, we like where we are so much better . Perhaps this is why seller's who take the time to carefully weed their flower beds and place attractive pots of flowers and greenery near their entrance, entice more buyers and sell quicker.
Drive down any street..which houses do you notice the most ? Why the ones with gorgeous and varied landscaping , of course ! Cultivating your flower beds and adding colour, shining your windows and making your entry inviting, is the best way to say to potential buyers '' ! First impressions are afterall, very important.
Happy Gardening !
