How To Prep Your Yard for Spring Buying Season
The yard can make the property and home more spacious. It connects families and pets with nature and can reduce stress along with many other benefits. Here are five steps to prepare your yard this spring.
1. Stage your space
Show how the space can or will be used. Set up outdoor tables and chairs, swing, barbeque grill set-up, and other touches that would scream home.
Staging a yard is an important selling point to a property. Always remember to incorporate elements that would make them feel welcomed.
2. Understand your buyer’s lifestyle needs
Know how your buyers can utilize the yard, then you can start planning. Does it require a place for shade for hot summer days? Does it have areas where the grass is lacking? Get to know the lifestyle of your clients to get the right plan for their yard.
3. Get familiar with the climate zone
Know what type of plants are appropriate for the climate of the home. Help your clients choose plants that can thrive with minimal input. You can check out the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone to know what plants fit a specific location.
4. Wildlife and pollinators
It is vital for a home to have thriving wildlife and pollinators. It is ideal for getting plants that would attract bees, butterflies, birds, or any other wildlife dependent on backyard plants for food and shelter.
Planting climate-appropriate, pollen-rich plants and flowers would help nourish those pollinators while creating the yard more vibrant.
5. Pet friendly plants
Most families consider the needs of their pets when planting or getting plants. Hardy grass is more ideal since it can withstand pet traffic. Check out ASPCA’s list of poisonous plants to see what types you should avoid.
