For Spring and Summer, Remember to Stage Your Outdoor Spaces

When I was selling my first house in Kirkland WA, I made it a point to beautify my yard.  In my backyard, I always had a hard time keeping a fairly large part of my lawn looking green and beautiful.  That would not look good for selling - so I decided to create a small patio.  Yes, it took time and effort.  But within a week I had a gorgeous looking "outdoor room" that I know helped sell my home in 1 day.  It didn't cost very much - I bought pavers on sale, some sand and pea gravel and some extra plants (also on sale!). I loved this space...and, of course, so did the buyer.  I am so glad I took the time to do this.  Maybe my family wasn't so happy with me because they were the unwilling helpers - but when I had a quick and successful sale, they all admitted it was worth it!

Create a Unique Space Where a Buyer Can Envision Entertaining Friends and Family

Add height and lushness by placing plants in urns and tall planters.  When we worked on Designer Showhouses, the landscape companies that we worked with were able to create beautiful, mature-looking gardens very quickly by doing this.  It also creates more of an estate look and a private space in your garden - both are selling points.

Create a Unique Space:  Using a hammock between two trees can give your yard a memorable moment. Buyers will have this in their mind long after they leave the Open House. Don't have two trees?  How about adding a swing?

Beautiful Porches Can Sell a Home:  Do you have a covered porch in the front or back of your home?  More times than not, these porches are catch-alls for stuff sellers don't know what to do with!  Don't fall into this trap - make your porch is a beautiful spot to entertain in ... and to rest, relax and read a book in.

We can help you make your outdoor spaces beautiful and memorable.  Now that the warmer weather is here, make sure that these spaces look welcoming and warm.  Don't have the furnishings and accessories?  No problem - we do and they are available at reasonable rates.  Don't have a green thumb?  No problem - we do.  Call us at 631 793-1315.
