Freshen up green lawns, clean patios and plant what I like to call “listing flowers,” small blooms that provide little pops of color for yard photography. I love impatiens, which are colorful and easy to plant and in the summertime, try vincas. They come in so many bright colors. They’re hearty and fast-growing. Impatiens and vincas are also long-lasting; you don’t want flowers that are so delicate they won’t make it past the first showing. Overall, a beautifully landscaped lawn helps evoke that indoor/outdoor feeling that has become so popular since the pandemic began and home took on an entirely new meaning. Plus, nobody wants to look at a dead lawn or wilting flowers. And let’s remember one of my favorite expressions: “If you can’t see it, you can’t sell it.” Sellers who allow bushes to grow over windows or tree limbs to hang on top of a home are blocking precious light and how can we describe your luxury home as “open and airy” if it … well … isn’t?
