1. Treat weeds and patch in dead areas of your lawn with sod.
If you haven’t been as diligent as you should have been at keeping up the condition of your lawn, some areas may have declined. It’s not necessary to re-sod your entire lawn if only a few areas are bare. Sod can be patched in to the bare areas and will establish in a few weeks during the growing season. Having a professional come treat the weeds in the lawn before it is put on the market is a good idea because you don’t want to run the risk of injuring the lawn with herbicide by doing it yourself right before you go to sell it.
2. Clean out planting beds and refresh the mulch.
Even if the lawn is not in perfect condition, it doesn’t take much effort to create pristine planting beds by removing all the weeds and applying fresh mulch. Clean planting beds adds tremendous eye appeal to the landscape.
3. Simplify your landscape.
Sometimes less is more. Many times you can enhance your landscape by completely removing overgrown shrubs, planting beds or reducing the size of planting beds in the yard. Over time mature landscapes tend to get a “jungle” look. You can add a lot of curb appeal by simply thinning out the jungle and simplifying the landscape.
Of course the best thing to do is to keep your lawn and landscape healthy and maintained all the time so very little is needed to be done when you go to put your house on the market.
