Top Spring Landscaping Trends to Boost Curb Appeal

A clean, crisp lawn is essential for spring landscaping.

Create a Clear Pathway

Your front entrance is the focal point of your home. So, you want to ensure it’s easily identifiable and accessible from a street view. Otherwise, your home’s exterior might look asymmetrical, hurting your curb appeal. Create a clear pathway to your front entrance that feels natural and intuitive, making your home appear more welcoming and cohesive. You might do this by using pavers, brickwork, or stones to create a walkway and incorporating outdoor lighting along the path. 

Revitalize the Lawn 

Your front lawn is one of the most influential, if not the most, factors to your home’s curb appeal. Consider your lawn to be the red carpet of your home, paving the way toward your home’s entrance and setting the tone of your landscaping. If your lawn is unkempt and tattered, it will deter home buyers from pursuing your listing. We recommend putting a lawn refresh on your spring landscaping checklist. From planting new soil to removing debris or weeds, touching up your lawn will revitalize your home’s overall look and freshen things up before it hits the spring housing market.    

Incorporate Outdoor Lighting

Adding outdoor lighting can do wonders for your spring landscaping, especially at night. Add outdoor lighting to boost your curb appeal and perfect your spring landscaping. It's high on a home buyer's wish list!From draping tasteful string lights on your front porch to adding small lanterns along your front entranceway, outdoor lighting is a simple and cost-effective way to make your home feel warm and inviting. You’d be surprised how much of a difference a little light can make! 

Plant a Garden

Planting a garden adds color, texture, and life to your home’s exterior. This aged-old spring landscaping trick is a great way to give your home some personality and brighten your yard. Consider planting flowers that will last all season long, like daffodils, tulips, or marigolds. Consider incorporating a cohesive color scheme that complements your home’s exterior and using some bricks or stones to create a distinct perimeter around your flower bed. Doing so will spotlight the garden and protect it from external grass or weeds. 

Add Water Features

One of our favorite outdoor home staging tips is incorporating water features into landscaping. Whether it be a dainty bird bath on your patio or an elegant fountain near your flower beds, water features can elevate your outdoor space and cater to a buyer’s senses in new ways. Hearing the tranquil trickling of water as they enter your home, buyers will instantly feel at ease and think of your home as a serene oasis rather than just another listing.
