Landscaping tips for home sellers

When you are getting ready to sell a home in Minnesota, you may decide to focus on interior home improvements and last-minute staging. However, the people at HGTV say the outside of your home is just as important, and they came up with a list of tips that could help attract buyers.

Outdoor containers may be in need of some attention, and large potted plants may give the front of your home just what it needs. According to HGTV, container plants placed on patios and near entrances may offer potential buyers some inspiration before stepping into your house.

If your home has mulch, HGTV recommends applying a fresh layer over top of where you currently have it placed. The color can be a great contrast to the rest of your home's vegetation, and the source says it is a fairly easy and inexpensive update.

In any season, the network says you should cut down any overgrown shrubs and trees to give your home a well-maintained look. Branches can often be easier to shape and trim back during the colder months when they lose their buds and leaves.

In addition to gardening, the source says to make sure walkways and driveways are clean. Use a power washer to make these features look brand-new.
