First impressions are important; everyone knows that. And when you’re selling your home it’s vital to create a memorable first impression on potential buyers. If your home has a rundown, shabby-looking exterior you’re literally throwing money in the garbage. Why would you do that?
Well-kept landscaping boosts the value of a home by up to 15%
What does that mean? In 2016, the average value of a home in the City of Toronto was $782,051 – if you purchased one of these properties and simply transformed its landscaping, it could add as much as $117,000 to the value!
Remember, the exterior of your home makes the first impression on potential buyers.
Exterior staging is incredibly important to create and leave a lasting impression on potential real estate buyers. You wouldn’t show up to a blind date wearing your pajamas, would you? Take a long, hard look at your yard and landscaping, and consider whether it could do with some attention before you put your home on the market. If you’ve already listed your home, don’t worry – there’s still time to salvage it!
Here are some key areas of your home’s landscaping that might need your attention:
If you suspect that your exterior landscaping isn’t up to par, you are leaving a poor impression on potential buyers! What can you do about that? Invest in exterior staging either by attempting to do-it-yourself, or by hiring a professional to take care of it for you. There are a number of ways you can revamp your exterior and keep your home looking its best, not only to improve the resale value but also to speed up the sale – after all, you want to sell your home fast, right?

While we specialize in hedge and shrub trimming services, we also perform the following general landscape staging tasks to ensure that your home looks fantastic:
Hedge and Shrub Trimming
Hedge and shrub trimming are exceptionally important, not only to ensure that your greenery looks great but also to promote healthy growth. A potential buyer who knows this will surely be put off by the sight of your overgrown hedge, considering that they will need to remove it or replant if they purchase your home.
Trees can easily become overgrown and unsightly. Often, removing a few key branches and trimming back overgrowth can significantly improve the appearance of a tree.
At worst, those potential buyers who can’t ignore overgrown and dying trees will consider the cost and associated headache of removing them. At best, overgrown trees will leave a subconscious impression on buyers that could affect their approval of your property.
Cleaning up your yard is a no-brainer. If you have mulch, dead branches, leaves, and unsightly debris scattered across your yard in an unkempt manner you need to do something about it. Staging your home for maximum success requires attention to these finer details, some of which homeowners and buyers alike may not be consciously aware of, but which leave a negative impression regardless.
Staging your garden is a very important factor in making your home look just right. Transforming your overgrown, messy garden into a beautiful work of art is what we do, and we’re very experienced at it. In some cases, a few hours of garden staging can make a world of difference, while others require a little more effort. Garden staging is one of the simplest ways to improve the look of your home’s exterior.
