Realtor OKC: Why Mowing Your Lawn Properly Matters
Are you trying to sell your home this spring or summer? Think for a second about the first impression people get when they pull up in front of your home. Our Realtor OKC team has mentioned in a previous post about how your yard can sell your house, but let’s get a little more specific.
Fancy landscaping is a great idea, but did you know you could be mowing your lawn incorrectly? It’s true and doing so could ruin the whole curb appeal. Here is 1 major tip from our realtor OKC team to help you mow your lawn properly, in turn, keeping it fresher and helping buyers to be more attracted to your home upon first glance.
Realtor OKC Team Tip- Don’t Mow The Grass Too Short: Grass that is too short is one of the most common causes of weed invasion due to the grass becoming weak, so be careful! Short grass is also capable of getting diseases and drought damage. Not only that, but some ants and other insects actually like to live in grass that has been chopped really short. According to landscaping experts, lawns should be cut to a height of 3-4 inches, so set your lawn mower wheels at their highest or second highest setting.
If you don’t have time to keep up with proper lawn maintenance on your own, our realtor OKC team members would encourage you to consider hiring a professional. This is especially vital to consider if you’re looking to sell your home and it is a great investment to help ensure that the property maintains its curb appeal.
