Gardening for Curb Appeal

If you’re thinking of selling your home, chances are you’re already aware of the importance of curb appeal. A house that appears well-maintained and updated from the outside can lead to more showings, and possibly a higher selling price.

Now that you’ve power washed your home’s exterior, repaired the roof and trimmed the lawn, use your love of gardening to add even more visual interest to your home’s exterior.

Consider these tips for instant curb appeal:

 
 
 

TIP ONE:

Maintain those flower beds.

Pull weeds and deadhead any spent flowers. Consider adding some popular perennials such as Perovskia or Veronica to add a splash of color. Spread a fresh layer of mulch for a finished look.

TIP TWO:

Mind the mailbox.

If you have a mailbox or lamp post at the foot of your driveway or another prominent area, plant flowers around it for a pretty first impression. Drift® Roses are ideal for such a planting. Their vibrant colors, combined with their low, compact habit and easy-to-maintain characteristics, will lend an instant bit of charm to this often-overlooked location.

 
 

TIP THREE:

Add a low maintenance rose garden.

Shrub roses like The Knock Out® Family of RosesDrift® Roses and the Look-A-Likes® series of roses offer the beauty of a rose with little maintenance or special care. Roses such as these will bloom continuously throughout the season, offering a show-stopping display of color in the garden.

Many perennials and even shrubs are ideal for use in containers. Placed by the front door, they offer a welcoming feel to potential buyers. Try planting Albizia Chocolate Fountain™ or Coreopsis Little Bird™ in traditional stone or clay planters for an elegant appeal at your front entryway.

You can also never go wrong with a Knock Out® Rose tree!
