I started thinking that perhaps potential buyers were getting addresses from their realtors and driving by houses to decide which ones they want to look at. Keep in mind that winter in the high desert is dead. Everything, well, most everything looks dead. It'll be another month or two before we're in flowering full swing. What's a person to do?
I went out to the front of the house to assess my curb appeal. ZERO! The bushes have grown so large that you can't even see the front of the house!
The planting area in front also looks dead. It'll be a couple more months before the plants show any real life and are in bloom.
I know the yard, too, looks dead, but with the monsoons, this will all look like a lush lawn that has to be mowed at least once a week. But for now, dead.
So instead of being discouraged, I told Hubby we need to get out there and feel like we're making some progress, even if it's just us working. Trim back the bushes, put in some more flowers in the big pots in front, find some flowering shrubs that will look good right now for the planting area.
Inside, we have cleaned out, boxed up, it looks pretty good. Thank goodness the backyard was landscaped by the previous owners and stays in pretty good shape.
Any suggestions or ideas you may have for my curb appeal, speak up! You're not going to hurt my feelings, really. :)
