Curb Appeal In The Spring Market

By
Home Stager with Design To Market LLC

 

White Oak Garden Center

I recently attended a staging seminar where the owner of  White Oak Garden Center, Jeff Webeler, spoke on the least expensive way to cost effectively add color to the front of a home.  

We at Design To Market have been staging homes in Cincinnati since 2004.  We continue to challenge ourselves on the best way to help our clients get the most bang for their buck in these outdoor spaces.  It seems we have agreed with Jeff that colorful planters give a lot of impact and color to the front of a home.  

I thought his tips on planting a planter were fantastic.  His easy to follow directions to find an attractive planter and then place a "filler, a spiller and a thriller" in the planter really hit home for me.  He also recommended that you might take a photo of the front of your home to your local garden center so that the specialist there can help you with effective plant selections.

Design To Market has been staging homes in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky since 2004.  For more information about our Cincinnati home staging services please call 513-265-0952 or visit our website atwww.designtomarketllc.com .

Jeff also mentioned that neatly trimming the beds and around the yards perimeter is an easy and inexpensive way to make even an unhealthy lawn look tidy.  Jo

Hey Jo! Nice post on curb appeal!  Some people seem to forget about the 'outside appeal'...which is just as important to attract buyers!

Thanks for all of your comments.  cocoplumI also think that repainting the front door and shutters if necessary is a good next step.
