First things first, you need to walk out into the street and take a look at your home. Take mental pictures and mental notes concerning what changes you’d like to make and what you feel that your property needs to look especially appealing. Any shrubs that are overgrown or simply planted incorrectly that are obstructing an outsider’s view of architectural features should be noted. You can fix this by simple pruning which gives your St. George landscape a more groomed look as well as making important features 100% visible.
Next, make sure that your lawn and other areas with grass are fertilized and mowed to optimize color and symmetry as much as possible. Remove any grass or weeds that may be growing in your planter beds and in the cracks of the driveway and walkways. It’s very important for the driveway and walkway areas to look clean and shapely. Get your weed whacker out and shape the edges of the lawn alongside any concrete. Also, some seasonal decorations on the doorstep or strategically placed on the outside of the house can be extremely helpful to curb appeal.
Let’s address the backyard. Obviously, people aren’t going to be able to see it from the street or driveway, but maintaining a cohesively put-together property that includes the backyard is very important. Think of how strange it would be if a visitor had nothing but compliments for your front yard but then came into your home, looked through a window or sliding glass door into the backyard and found it disheveled, unkempt, and ignored? Give your backyard section of your St. George landscape the same attention you give the front. In addition to the landscaping factors, adding attractive lights is a great way to increase the appeal of the backyard.
