Landscaping says a lot about a home, particularly how much care the home gets. Clues that your home receives little attention are crabgrass, weeds, leggy bushes, trees with dead branches, muddy areas where grass won't grow, and lack of color.
First impressions of the surroundings should be positive. Well-kept healthy grass with neatly trimmed edges looks astonishingly better than over grown and weedy grass.
Consider having your garden and yard professionally manicured-that's grass cut, weeds killed, and edges trimmed. Professional lawn care services can make recommendations on certain treatments and identify any problems you may want to fix to bring up your home's marketability.
Or, consider inviting the neighborhood kids to come over for a cleanup, cookout and some spending money.
Make sure you remove eyesores and dangers, like tree stumps or junky, rusted lawn furniture. If a tree blocks a window or scratches the roof, that's a sure sign your tree needs serious trimming. One bad storm could send a branch crashing through to your interior.
