Some thoughts on your lawn and curb appeal

If you’re planning on selling your home in the near future or simply want to add value and enjoyment to your home, increasing curb appeal is one of the most important changes you can make to your home’s exterior. First impressions are extremely important to a home’s overall appeal and potential sales, and your lawn’s health and appearance is a vital component of your home’s curb appeal.

Real Estate agents say lawn care and landscaping is important

According to a 2008 survey published in Realtor Mag, 82 per cent of real estate agents polled said that buyers who are not impressed with the outside of the home will not bother to look inside, and the majority of sales depend on the first impressions of a home. A recent study by Michigan State University also found that high-quality landscaping can add between 5 percent and 11 percent to a home’s price – and when considering the ever-increasing average price of a home in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), that percentage can mean tens of thousands of dollars.

Using a lawn sprinkler system to boost your home’s curb appeal

A well-maintained, lush and green lawn can easily be achieved by using a properly installed lawn sprinkler system, especially a smart lawn sprinkler system  that you can just “set and forget”. These lawn irrigation systems are worry-free, detect rainfall to prevent unnecessary watering and prevent wasteful overwatering.

Precise watering is one of the most important things a homeowner can do for their lawn, and in turn the lawn will return the favour by remaining attractive and welcoming to prospective buyers… and envious neighbours.
