Curb Appeal – Your First Impression

Curb Appeal – Because you only get one chance to make a first impression.

Curb appeal is the first impression your home makes to visitors and the general public. Landmark Landscapes believes that the first impression is the most important. This article will review the fundamentals of achieving proper curb appeal and some tips to make improvements. 

What Real Estate Professionals Say About Curb Appeal

Real Estate professionals will tell you that curb appeal is what gives homebuyers their first impression of a property before they even step inside. The appearance of the outside can provide some insight as to what one might find on the other side of the front door. You could even say proper curb appeal is an ingenious marketing tool designed to sell the home from the outside in. 

Basics of Curb Appeal 

At Landmark Landscapes our goal isnโ€™t necessarily to help you sell your home, but we can certainly do so. We are more invested in assisting you in helping you create a property that you love to come home to. Our proven process is designed to ensure you get the results you desire.

Some of the basics of curb appeal are turf grass that is green, well kept, clean edges, mowed consistently and kept at an appropriate height. The front entrance should be obvious and not obscured by overgrown plant material. This helps visitors feel comfortable and safe. To continue on the safety perspective, walkways should be level, free of unexpected changes of grade and lighted. Planting beds should be free of weeds and mulched as needed. Trees in the landscape are important, as they express a sense of longevity. Shrubs and perennials are well maintained.
