When you are selling your home, it is important to always keep outdoor spaces clean and neat, but this is most important when selling your home during the summer months. Keep the lawn mowed regularly, and if possible mow it diagonally, this is more visually appealing. Prune trees and shrubs, especially if they are touching the house or growing over the sidewalks and driveway. Keep the garden beds neat, and add brightly colored blooming annuals and perennials to the beds. In the backyard, play up spaces such as the swimming pool, outdoor kitchens, fire pits and putting greens. Outdoor spaces are wonderful for entertaining and extend the living space of the home.
