When selling your home can mulch make a difference? Absoulutely! Giving wornout landscaping a fresher look is part of staging your home to sell. When a buyer arrives to potential new property, and are greeted with updated mulch, they are drawn inside the front door. They immediately feel that the previous owner took care of the property. Who knew mulch could talk to the new buyers?
Which mulch color is right for staging a home?
Consider the exterior colors of the home....brick, stone, siding, stucco, roof, shutters. Make sure all is working together to create a color palette that is pleasing to the eye. Here is an example of how updating the mulch color can prove to be a good exterior staging choice.
Before/This new listing had red brick and red mulch, which made the eye focus on the dead grass.
After/Replaced the red mulch with a black mulch, which contrasts the house color and is more welcoming.
Red mulch with the red brick was too monochromatic, the dark mulch however, was a nice contrast and let the house be the star of this show. When listing a new property, remember MULCH MATTERS!
