With winter approaching here in Zionsville, IN, the colorful foliage and green lawns are soon coming to an end. Gone also will be the hours spent outside maintaining your home. But, now isn’t the time to fully retreat inside, especially if your Zionsville, IN home is for sale. There are projects you can work on now, as the weather begins to cool, to ensure your home will look warm and inviting throughout the upcoming winter season.
Plant bulbs. Fall is the perfect time to plant early bloomers such as crocuses, daffodils, and tulips. The warmer soil of fall is great for the root development and will give the plants time to develop before next summer’s heat.
Install lighting. Lighting can make a huge difference in your Zionsville, IN home’s curb appeal. It gets dark out early in the winter and it’s possible some of those home showings will be after work hours, in the dark. Make your home stand out with some vintage lanterns along the driveway or an updated porch light. Tree up-lighting also works well to highlight your home and it’s landscaping.
Lawn care. There isn’t much you can do about a brown lawn during the winter months. What you can do is make sure you take care of raking all the leaves and give the lawn a last mowing and trimming this fall. A tidy lawn is much needed for winter curb appeal.
There is plenty you can do this fall to enhance your Zionsville, IN home’s curb appeal through the winter. If you are still entering the process of putting your home on the market, contact a Zionsville, IN real estate agent today to start the selling process. We hope to earn your business!
