Sometimes, you’ve got to speculate to accumulate. In the world of real estate, some people just won’t be able to sell their home unless they make drastic changes to it.
Quite often, these drastic changes involve knocking down walls, adding extensions and all sorts of hugely expensive courses of action.
However, it doesn’t have to be like this. Believe it or not, the small touches count and as you may have guessed by now, flowers fall into this category.
For the purposes of today, we’re going to focus on the external use of flowers. With that being said, there are some great examples of indoor flowers over at Avas Flowers. Take a look at the Avas Flowers Instagram page, or these Avas Flowers reviews, to see how indoor products can work like a charm when it comes to selling your home.
If we return to the topic of external floral decorations, it is clear that these play right into the hands of curb appeal – provided you do it “right”. Let’s see what the definition of “right” is through today’s article.
It is a balancing act
Firstly, this is a balancing act. Stuffing your garden full of flowers is overkill and will have the opposite effect. You instead need to take a measured approach, making sure that everything is in order.
For example, placing large trees at the front of your house is going to hide it (which isn’t great from a security point of view either). Instead, larger plants should be placed towards the side, while the smaller ones should be central and subsequently show off the property.
Consistent coloring is key
There’s no doubt that a vibrant garden of flowers is going to be hugely impactful. At the same time, you need a degree of consistency. Flowers and plants should not be allowed to “clash” in the garden – everything should work together to almost appear as one.
Create a sequence
We spoke about balancing in the first point, but to go one step further you can create something of a sequence. Sure, there is a balancing act to be had in relation to not disguising your property, but making everything appear in unison will win half of the battle. In other words, keep the lower plants to the front, and taller ones to the back. This can even relate to individual flower beds (in other words, this advice can be interpreted quite granularly).
There is always a place for containers
So far, much of today’s piece has been about larger plants and flower beds which typically dominate a garden. However, there’s something else that can assist with curb appeal, and this comes in the form of containers.
Granted, not every home is going to be suited to such decoration, but they can add a delicate finishing touch and an aura of symmetry (which is one of the major rules of curb appeal).
Let’s not forget that pretty much any plant out there can be placed in a container, providing a surprising degree of flexibility.
