Beau­ti­ful on the in­side and the out­side

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Here are some easy "bites" to sell your house on the out­side first. - Clean up any yard waste and clut­ter, rake the leaves. Get rid of that old tire be­hind the garage. Try to look at your house ob­jec­tively, as if you're see­ing it for the first time. If there is any­thing that would de­tract from the look of the land­scape to you, it will be more so with a pos­si­ble buyer. - Re­seed any bare spots on the lawn. Pick grass

seed that's right for your cli­mate. - Cut down any large trees and bushes that are too

close to the house or are in poor con­di­tion. - Plant flower borders along walk­ways and in front of the home. Low flow­er­ing borders add colour and a homey feel­ing to a house with­out de­tract­ing from the main fo­cus, which is the home it­self. - In­stall path lights on walk­ways and path­ways. An eco­nom­i­cal and green friendly choice is so­lar pow­ered path­way lights. - Re­pair any large cracks in the drive­way and clean

up oil spills and stains. Land­scap­ing can get ex­pen­sive but stick­ing to the ba­sics are a ne­ces­sity es­pe­cially if you sell­ing your house this spring.
