The Importance of Outdoor Décor

When you’re getting ready to sell your home, you begin to consider all of the things that might make it attractive to potential buyers. Should you renovate the kitchen? Update the bathrooms? Trade the carpets for hardwood? Throw on a fresh coat of paint? On top of all the updates, your realtor will inevitably discuss “staging” with you, which is basically just decorating in a way that makes your home as universally appealing as possible. But all of these things have to do with your home’s interior. What about the outside?

Many people fail to appreciate the importance of outdoor décor. There are numerous reasons why the housing market is most active in spring and summer. But did you ever consider that with the drab trappings of winter, homes don’t show as well? Spring and summer let buyers see homes in their best light – that is, if you have tasteful landscaping. You would be amazed at how substantially curb appeal can affect the price of a home!

Many of us have spent years puttering around in the garden and take great pride in our yards. But some of us may not be quite so familiar with landscaping and could use a helping hand. We’re always happy to offer our expertise and help you with landscaping choices, but we also want to make you aware of the other great resources available, such as the annual Canada Blooms festival. The festival is the largest of its kind in Canada. It takes place this year at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto from March 15 through March 24. Whether you’re a novice gardener or a horticultural aficionado, this festival offers something for everyone, with various speakers, contests, demos, vendors, and displays. For more information, visit the festival website at
