If you are planning to sell your home in 2018, consider making landscaping a priority. As new buyers arrive in Oregon, their focus can be engaged by charming, northwest specific gardening — and these three trends will help spotlight all the gorgeous pacific northwest fauna that makes Portland such a charming place to live.
Rethink Your Masonry
Creative stonework, be it a garden path or a decorative raised flower bed, can be a game changer for your outdoor spaces. Think about garden borders, walls, archways and pathways.
Al Fresco Dining Areas
In the Pacific Northwest, rainy days occupy more than 160 days of the year; ensure your buyer can enjoy the remaining 205 non-rainy days in their lovely garden by creating an al fresco dining area. Go the extra mile and cover it so your buyers can enjoy the outdoors year-round.
In Portland, a garden that attracts hummingbirds and butterflies has intrinsically more value than one that does not. Aside from supporting local ecosystems, it adds a dimension of true whimsy to your gardens. Bee supporting gardens are prized as well, however, they can be dangerous to those with bee allergies.
