Springtime Gardens The Perfect Side Dish To Selling Your Home In College Station Texas

Being an avid gardener I am biased. I won't deny it. But as a veteran Realtor I am convinced that a veggie garden can be the perfect side dish to helping sell your home in central Texas, and College Station  in the spring time season.

In this "Green Focused" world we live in springtime flowers in the front yard of a home  are terrific for creating great street appeal. But when it comes to great backyard eye candy , a handsome veggie garden is hard to beat! Plump tomatoes, pink potatoes, bushy green bean vines, tall corn plants, giant squash plants....they all help create a great mixture of pleasant odors, handsome colors, and texture. This is especially true for a backyard that has your standard grass with manicured shrubbery.

As far as the "Green Issue" to me that means organic. Organic may be a little extra work but it could be a selling asset. Here is what woul constitute an organic "green " garden in my opinion.

  • No herbicides, chemical insecticides, or other chemicals.
  • Only organic fertilizers.
  • And finally a little known one.... " Heirloom" type plants grown from heirloom seeds.  IE......the offspring seeds can be dried and planted. Most modern veggie seeds are hybrid and the seeds that result will not grow.  This is great for the seed companies! 30 or more  years ago most seeds could be replanted.  

If you want to really impress a potential home buyer tell them you have an organic "heirloom" veggie garden in the back yard.

There's nothing like home grown vegetables, in my humble opinion.  Thanks for reblogging!

Beautiful veggies! Can't wait for growing season to begin. This is a different idea for selling a house. We sometimes forget the backyard too.

Mike They looked so beautiful I could not help myself. Thank you

Lizette I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt. My big problem is I have ground hogs that love tomatoes as much as I do. Hopefully this year I will have raised beds and this might keep them away. Have a wonderful day
