Joseph Talbot, Real Estate Broker - HOME IMPROVEMENTS THAT IMPROVE VALUES

Over time, trees become beautiful pieces of art that really tie a backyard tie a backyard together. So if you’re looking to add a few before you sell your home, do so right away. Look for any type that is about eight inches tall and one to two inches in diameter. In three to five years, the trees will be in full effect.

SMALLER LAWN

This may surprise you, considering most people see a large, healthy, green lawn in their mind when they picture the perfect backyard, but a smaller lawn is the trend these days. For instance, installing deep planting beds with wide borders and perhaps some shrubs is an excellent way to ensure the backyard feels neither empty nor small. To make the backyard and the lawn appear larger, have a square or ring of flower beds going around the back fence or wall, depending on your setup. Planting plenty of vibrant, brightly coloured flowers will bring a more positive, bubbly vibe to the backyard and allow potential buyers to better picture themselves and their family entertaining or having fun in the sun outside for many years to come.

ADDING A SANCTUARY

To create the perfect backyard sanctuary, incorporating water is the ideal way to have a beautiful, oasis-like backyard. For example, a small pond (with or without fish), a fountain, a pool, or a hot tub with some comfortable seating areas will give potential buyers the feeling that they have stepped into a small, beautiful, sweet sanctuary that could be their very own.
