“You may not have a green thumb, but that’s no reason to let your yard become an eyesore. Not only will maintaining your lot keep your neighbors happy, landscaping can actually also help boost your home’s value”.
But where do you start? Lambeth Hochwald asked real estate agents nationwide for the gardening gaffes they see most and seven most common mistakes to avoid are summarized in his article. I am exciting that one of the 7 selected was a landscaping faux-pas that I continually observe on the field.
Not paying enough attention to your lawn
“Maintaining the soil conditions in your lawn and watering your lawn in a timely fashion is a task many homeowners struggle with. There are many lawns that are watered at the wrong time, cut too short (or with a dull blade), or isn’t aerated to allow water and fertilizer to penetrate. This creates irregular dead spots, weeds, brown grass and bugs.” Karen Kostiw, a Realtor at Warburg Realty in New York City
