It is a bright sunny day here. ... It is inspiring and firing ... and I have been fired up to take action on a thought from a while ago. A new blog, My Landscape Design.
Real Estate people know all about the value of home staging.
What about the outside??
Sure, clean it up a bit - cut the grass - shovel the snow - and some fresh paint may be all some think about before putting a home on the market. But new homeowners are often looking for much - much more in a home.
First impressions are from the outside. That is the first invitation to a home ... and to any outdoor living space.
My Landscape Design will become my primary focus on ActiveRain. I want to see it evolve to be THE source for real estate people and homeowners when in comes to developing the outside of their home to enhance their enjoyment and living - and to add much value to the property overall in terms of $ value.
A new group may be in the works ... or there may be groups I find myself totally committed to making regular posts ... or you may want to subscribe to the new blog and keep up with the news, views and how tos. Become knowledgeable and versed in the real green business.
I am no longer a licensed real estate agent - but have always been in the business in some way as Prairie Scapes was founded by my wife and me. Fern is a professional landscape designer. I am a master gardener.
Prairie Scapes has evolved in to a superior landscape design company - with a focus to Southern Alberta, both rural and urban. Check out www.prairiescapes.ca for more information.
This is just the first day of the blog ... and changes will be made as I work with some of the techie options - and widgets. You will see a directory evolve. It will be your main source for finding information.
