How to Increase your Home's Value with a Beautiful Lawn

First impressions are everything and the initial thing potential buyers see when they are viewing a home is the exterior of the house. Strive to make that first impression a good one by maintaining your lawn. When potential buyers are comparing homes, it's important to give them a reason to take yours more serious than the rest.

Here are a few tips Weed Man of Evansville is here to provide you with to help give your house that aesthetic appeal and bring in numerous potential buyers without having to break the bank. 


Keep your yard weed-free and fertilized 

No one likes unsightly weeds in their yard. This is where Weed Man of Evansville can come into play! The key to keeping your lawn lush and green is regular fertilization and weed control. Not only is a well-fertilized lawn healthier and greener, it is also far better at preventing weed infestation, disease and drought. Fertilizer also ensures proper nutrition and root development. Contact Weed Man today to help increase your lawn's value. 

Mow and water your lawn regularly

A lawn that is cut properly and regularly watered stands out to potential buyers. Make sure you are mowing your lawn consistently and understand the proper guidelines to mowing and keeping your lawn at its healthiest. Cutting at a proper height, keeping your mower blades sharp, and always mowing on dry glass will help ensure happy and healthy turf. When you are watering your lawn, be sure to water in the morning. Also, your lawn (depending on the type of grass and soil) needs at least 1 ½ inches of water a week (this includes rainfall). As a result, this will encourage strong and healthy roots. Be mindful that too much water can be just as bad as not enough. Excessive watering can result in waste and problems with your lawn such as disease.

Add some landscaping to your home

A well-landscaped home has a substantial value advantage over a home without any landscaping. In fact, it is one of the rare home improvements you can make that not only adds value instantly, but also increases in value as the years go by. Adding trees and shrubs to your exterior can add major curb appeal as well as shade and help reduce your home's energy costs. Also, a well-kept garden helps beautify your home and give it that wow-factor it's been missing. A good landscape design can skillfully accentuate a house.
