Increase your curb appeal for resale with artificial grass

Artificial grass adds curb appealAre you planning on selling your home in Prescott? When searching for ways to increase your curb appeal artificial grass can lend to a manicured look.

Artificial turf was introduced in 1966 replacing the grass in the Houston Astrodome. Since that time artificial turf has expanded to both residential and commercial applications.

Benefits of using artificial grass in your yard

  • Eco-friendly water conservation
     
  • Continuous manicured appearance
     
  • Decreased maintenance
     
  • Higher resale value
     
  • UV inhibitor prevents the color from fading in the Prescott High Desert climate

In addition to installing artificial grass, there are a number of other things you can do to entice buyers the minute that they enter your drive. Adding final touches such as flowering shrubs, perhaps a flagstone walkway and fresh mulch will go a long way. After all the old saying, “the devils in the details” can compel buyers to get the buyer out of their car excited to take a peek inside.
