Why You Should Hire a Professional Landscaper

You may be thinking to yourself that it’s time to get your hands dirty. The sun is shining and the warm weather has arrived. But, you’re at a crossroad of what to do first. Should you mow? Should you start weeding? Or should you start with the gutters? If these thoughts are a bit too familiar,you should consider hiring a professional. Oftentimes, we become elated that spring is finally here and we can finally turn our home into the beautiful oasis it once was. Take a look at the tips below for why you should hire a professional.

1. Spring and fall clean ups are essential

There are two things that are crucial to the health of your lawn and yard—spring and fall cleanups. A spring clean up entails the rejuvenating of your yard and bringing life back into your lawn and plants—and your home. A fall clean up preps your yard and home for the winter ahead, ensuring that your home will quickly come to life once spring arrives. Together, these deeds will keep your yard in tip-top shape and the envy of the neighborhood. And you didn’t have to lay a finger on it.

2. One less thing on the to do list

You work, have a social life and/or have children, work some more, sleep, and so much more. Simply put, you’re busy. There’s never enough time in a day to do everything you wanted. Now add on the home care demands that come with the warmer weather. So, if you’d rather enjoy the spring and summer months instead of worrying about planting those flowerbeds and mowing your lawn each weekend, hire the professional. The outdoor labor your home requires does not need to be another facet of your demanding life. Go out and enjoy life and leave your lawn care to the professionals.

3. They know what they’re doing

Last, but certainly not least—they know what they’re doing. They’re professionals. They perform this type of work day-in and day-out. Professionals will get the job done right and in a timely manner. And that’s really what counts, right?

Finding a professional is easy. As you drove down the street this morning, I’ll bet you saw at least two landscaping companies already at work. Next time, take note of the companies’ names and check out the work they’ve done. Oftentimes, they are small business and there’s not a lot of information online for you to determine their reputation. The best ways to find out their reputation and work they execute is through word of mouth and inspecting the homes they’ve done work for. But, it is the age of technology and it’s very likely they at least list a phone number and their services online so be sure to check there too.

Spring Tasks To Complete Before Selling Your Home

If you want to sell your home, spring is a great time to get started readying yourself for the process. Since most people don’t want to carry two mortgages, you’ll need to sell your home before buying a new one. If you do decide to buy and sell simultaneously, beware of contingencies. If you place a contingency that you’ll buy a new home on the condition that you sell your old home first, the deal could soon be out the window. All this aside, preparing to sell can go a long way as far as your dollar and attracting buyers.  

Market Your Home

As most home searches begin online, you’ll need good pictures of your home. Video walk-throughs are also common and helpful in selling many homes. You should work with your real estate agent to be sure that you have a marketing plan ready for execution. This will include sharing on social media and even blogs. Many times, hiring a professional is helpful to get these photos done. You could even get advice from marketing specialists to be sure that the process is being executed well. All of these seemingly little touches can help to drive additional traffic to a home listing. 

Testing The Market Equals Off The Market

If you’re thinking of “testing” the price of your home, it’s probably not a good idea. When the price of your home is too high from the start, people will lose interest quickly. If you start the sale of your home this way, you’ll end up needing to cut the price of the property quite significantly at some point. 

Do Your Research

Buyers also have an idea of what’s reasonably priced and what isn’t. Smart buyers will hold out as they know you’ll be dropping the price of the home fairly soon. Keep in mind that a well-priced home also will bring in much more traffic than a home that has been priced unreasonably. This can be a benefit to you as a seller. 

Make Green Improvements To Your Home


Making improvements to your home not only adds value to it, but makes it more attractive. Today’s environmentally conscious buyers appreciate the effort that sellers put in to go green. If you have the opportunity to put in solar panels or low flow toilets, do so for a big return and a home that’s more appeasing to buyers.

On the other side of “green” improvements is the landscaping. Before you put your home on the market, be sure to spruce up the yard. Curb appeal is a big deal to today’s buyers. Taking the time to make the lawn look well-groomed and put in some new shrubbery can really go a long way. When potential buyers pull up to the home, they’ll be able to see themselves living there.
