Happy Easter!

Spring is here! Now is a great time to think about selling your home. Not only are inventories and interest rates low, but landscapes are coming to life with beautiful, vibrant colors. Nothing can add curb appeal better than a well-thought-out landscaped yard. Pretty colorful flowers against a back drop of pretty green shrubs and trees will be sure to bring those home shoppers through your front door.

"We were just completing moving into a new home plus the listing sale of our previous home. Susie led us through the steps all the way! She is dynamo - works hard, always aims to please and gets the job done. What we appreciated the most was the fact she was always available for questions and kept us in constant touch with what was occurring. We already recommended her to friends and will continue to do so."

21 Plants to Add Instant Curb Appeal When Selling Your Home

Before you decide to plant that "For Sale" sign in your front yard, take a look at these flower and shrub ideas from HGTV. You can click on the link below for the entire article.

Boxwoods - These evergreens give structure to your yard. They make great foundation plants and come in many sizes so you can add them to beds and borders.

Roses - Knock Out Roses are low maintenance and they produce beautiful flowers from spring until frost. Drift roses are also easy to grow and make a pretty ground cover for sunny spots.

Hostas - Tuck shade-loving hostas into bare areas, or use them around shrubs and in borders. The flowers aren't showy, but their leaves can be standouts.

Arborvitae - These fast-growing evergreens are available in a range of sizes and are popular to use for natural privacy screens, hedges and borders. Some grow faster than others and some are more drought-tolerant than others.

Annuals - These are easy to establish and they make good fillers when your bulbs or shrubs stop blooming. For fast curb appeal, pop them into containers, hanging baskets or window boxes for splashes of color. Marigolds, petunias and geraniums are popular and easy to grow.

Ornamental Grasses - These are easy to grow and boost your home's curb appeal with interesting textures and add movement to the landscape as they sway in the breeze. Use in beds or large containers.

Ornamental Trees - Fast growing trees for curb appeal include crape myrtle, quaking aspens, river birches and red maples.

Mailbox Plants - Dress up your mailbox with a mix of plants. Try evergreens like inkberry holly Gem Box, assorted perennials and colorful annuals like coleus, lantanas. You may want to avoid plants that need frequent watering, unless you have a faucet nearby.

If you don't feel you have the time to plant in the yard before listing your home, you may think of some easier and quicker ways to add a pop of greenery and color. Such as...

Front Door Urns - For fast curb appeal, post urns on each side of your front door and plant them with something like Pinpoint Blue false cypress. These evergreens grow into tall, narrow columns, so they won't block your entrance. You can also underplant them with smaller flowers, such as Superbells, hostas or pansies. Urns are also ideal for growing topiary plants.

Window Boxes - Lushly planted window boxes that match the flowers and foliage in your beds and borders really kick up your home's appeal. The key is using complementary color combinations.
