Making Properties Shine Through Landscaping
First impressions are more than just for meeting someone new. Your property’s curb appeal can make a big difference in the kind of residents you attract. Although location and affordability are 2 of the 3 biggest things potential residents look at when finding a new home, 80% of people looking for a new place to live say that if it doesn’t look appealing in first glance, they won’t look at the rental.
Since there’s a direct correlation between the average number of vacancies throughout the year and the condition of the rental unit, it literally pays to keep a well-maintained and attractive property. Once you’ve done the obvious cosmetic work, such as painting, replacing rotting trim, and adding simple touches, the way to make your properties pop on the outside is to invest in some attractive landscaping.
TaskEasy makes it simple for you to keep a well-maintained lawn at an affordable price. Our vendors can do everything from mowing your lawn to gutter cleaning to landscaping. This gives you the opportunity to save time and money you would use haggling and bidding other lawn care services.
If you have an idea in mind that you think would work for your landscaping, let your vendor know. We suggest replacing your old or sickly shrubs and bushes with some attractive drought-resistant plants. You’ll be surprised at how beautiful they are. Many drought-resistant plants have lush texture and bloom during many seasons of the year. They’re also colorful, which will give your property extra spunk.
Properties that receive a great amount of direct sunlight are perfect for going all out in your landscaping. However, if the area is blasted with continual sunlight, you should consider a landscape plan that focuses on drought-tolerant perennials. Your lawn care vendor will know what is best for your properties and what will help them stand out.
If you don’t have the budget for a full upgrade in landscaping, pick a small, highly visible area to be adorned. Make each spot a showcase of good taste that you can’t miss or pass by without sneaking an admiring glance. Corners and places away from walkways and parking areas are perfect for the upgraded beautification.
Ask your lawn care vendor what the best option for your property is so you can get a feel for what they are picturing. This way there won’t be any surprises when your lawn is complete. Remember, this isn’t a one-time job. To keep your property looking pristine throughout the year, have your lawn care vendor come weekly or biweekly. They will be able to keep your grass trim and your flowers bright.
