Doesn’t she know I’m on the green thumbs of America’s most wanted list for killing the most plants by a single person???
I’ve seen that look of fear in the seller’s eyes, when I suggest for them to spruce up their yard, when putting their Northeast Florida home up for sale. It doesn’t matter whether their home is located in Clay, Duval or St Johns County, the same fear is everywhere! Beads of sweat dripping from their foreheads, nervous bounce of one, sometimes both their legs. They stutter as they talk, their hands shake. They try to escape to a room, farthest from me. Oh, wait, that’s the reaction I get from my kids, when I ask to see their report card! I’ve never seen a seller react like that before, well at least not in front of me.
On a more serious note, some sellers have green thumbs and some, just don’t. Some are on a budget and don’t want, nor can’t spend a fortune on making their house have better curb appeal. The great thing with landscaping, more is NOT better! If you choose plants native to our area and are fast growers, it is less expensive.
What about the destroyers of plants and everyone else who doesn’t have the time? Take a look at the picture below. What do you think of this landscape?
The flowers closet to the pavers are fake. Can’t tell, can you? Fake flowers are great to use, because you can’t kill them, you don’t have to water, prune or feed them! As long as you switch them out with the change of season, it’s hard to tell they are fake.
Here’s a few more:
Hard to tell their fake, isn’t it? And the other nice thing is, you can pick these flowers up at any store that sells fake flowers like Michael’s, Walmart or Joanne Fabrics. You don’t have to drive all over the place to find them!
