You only get one shot to impress potential buyers. Curb appeal is essential when selling a home.
Landscaping is the first thing that buyers see. Keep up with small details like regular lawn maintenance such as mowing, weeding, watering, and edging the driveway and sidewalks. Add new mulch, it's a fast and affordable way to accent your home.
