Landscaping When Trying to Sell Your Omaha Home

If you are trying to sell your Omaha home, there is a good chance that you are organizing, decluttering, and updating things on the inside in order to make it the perfect home. However, since buyers are going to see the outside of your Omaha home first, you want to make sure that you make a good first impression with the landscaping and yard of your home as well. A well landscaped front yard will attract more people who want to look at the inside of your home as well. In fact, when choosing a home 98 percent of buyers state that curb appeal is important. Here are some tips to consider when landscaping to sell your home.

How Important is Landscaping When Trying to Sell Your Omaha Home?

Plan Ahead

If you are thinking about selling your home in the spring, start on the landscaping in the fall. Remove yard debris and seed and fertilize the lawn. This will give it plenty of time to grow so that it looks its best. You should replace any shrubs and trees during the fall or the spring and not in the summer as this gives them a better chance to thrive.


Choose plants that are low maintenance so that you do not have as much yard work to do. Avoid going overboard with too many plants. This can turn people off because they simply see the garden as being too much work to take care of. Remove trees that are overgrown and shift shrubs to provide a cleaner look for the yard. This also helps to showcase the home and will make it look bigger.


Make sure that you trim the trees, shrubs, and hedges. Add in some fresh mulch. When potential buyers walk up to the home you want them to see a well kept yard. If the yard is a mess the potential buyers are going to think that if you do not take care of the yard you do not take care of the rest of the house either. This means that they will go inside of the home looking for other things that have not been well maintained.


Add in some color by using flowers. A simple wreath or flag by the door can make the home look brighter. It also makes it more visually interesting and inviting. Use items of universal appeal to draw attention to the front door. Remove any political signs, toys, trash cans, and religious symbols.
