Anybody who will be selling a property in the spring should get a jump on curb appeal by working now on beautifying the lawn.

Here are some key tasks that will lead to a green and healthy yard in the next selling season:
  • Calculate the total lawn area to learn how much seed and chemicals are required.
  • Treat weeds with an herbicide.
  • Test the pH level and, if indicated, add lime.
  • Plant ground cover like pachysandra and hardy ferns in low-light or slopping areas.
  • Before preparing, seeding and fertilizing the rest of the lawn, consider whether there are areas that might be better candidates for stepping stones or another attractive alternative to plantings.
