One of the most suggested renovations for homeowners preparing to sell is to add curb appeal. Your home’s landscaping is something that will draw the attention of potential buyers as well as add value. But the very idea of curb appeal has changed greatly since the term was coined in the mid-1970s. Today’s curb appeal is less about decorative garden beds and more about sustainability, local flora, and reclamation of materials like concrete and stone. Take into account these modern landscaping trends as you prepare your home for sale in 2018.
