If you are planning on selling your home this year, you’ll want to do everything you can to sell it for the best possible price.
The easiest and most efficient way to do that is to create a stunning, memorable first impression on buyers by talking to one of our professionals about your estate landscaping needs.
Before listing your home for sale, consider these 5 curb appeal landscaping tips from our professionals.
1. A welcoming front porch area
When buyers come to view your home, they will want to feel welcome and “at home.” The best way to do this is by creating a welcoming front porch area. When preparing your front porch area for viewing, try adding the following:
- Decorative and seasonal urns
- Potted or hanging plants
- Comfortable seating area
2. Convenient outdoor walkways
The walkway leading to your home is one of the most vital steps to building a strong aesthetic curb appeal. And, when designing a front yard walkway in Toronto, the shape, width and materials are important things to consider!
There are two things to keep in mind when you are designing your outdoor walkways:
- Style of your estate
- Size of your landscape
How large or small you decide to make your walkways can have an effect on your overall landscaping design.
Keep in mind: Your walkway should be wide enough to accommodate two people, which is approximately 4-5 feet for comfort.
The paving materials you choose should complement your home’s style and landscaping features.

3. Bright & colourful blooms
Create an inviting look and feel with colourful garden beds throughout your estate.
By adding lush trees and colourful flowering shrubs, your guests and potential buyers will immediately feel welcome.
4. Light up your landscaping
Another important aspect to increase buyer interest and estate safety and security is proper landscape lighting.
With the right installation and design, landscape lighting can create safe walkways and footpaths, as well as highlight certain focal points in your gardens.
5. Layered landscaping
Lastly, one of the best ways to create a beautiful curb appeal that will WOW your potential buyers is to layer your landscape.
A flat landscape design offers nothing to the imagination and fails to create depth in your design. Meanwhile, flowing designs that offer varying sizes of garden beds, trees and shrubs at different heights and widths will create a pleasing landscape design to be enjoyed by all.
