Garden and landscaping projects at this time of year may be the last thing on your mind, especially as intermittent storms come and go, but there are things you can start doing now to get your grounds ready for when warmer weather arrives. Beavercreek homes for sale are prime properties for adding the latest landscaping trends, so let's get going right now in your landscape and try out some of these pre-spring 2021 projects.

Get Going on These 2021 Landscaping Projects

  1. Create a raised bed.
    If you didn't plant a vegetable garden last year, get set for spring planting with a raised bed. Choose a manufactured or a homemade frame with dimensions of about 4 feet by 6 feet. The frame sides should be about 6 inches deep. If your yard is clear of snow and ice, you can mark off the area for the raised bed with string or spray paint.  Be sure to choose a sunny location. Double dig to a depth of 2 feet, returning soil to the bed but adding compost. You can create rows for seeds or seedlings later. Cover the bed with mulch and wait for the right planting times.

Millennial Buyers - Selling a Home - Wright-Patt Realty

If you're thinking about selling your home soon, you'll definitely want to keep the millennial homebuyer in mind. Although this generation wasn't a major player in the real estate market in past years, research shows that there's been an uptick in millennials buying their first homes. 

Our REALTORS® have recently helped many millennials find the perfect Beavercreek homes for sale. What we've noticed is that the features that are important to these homebuyers are different than what other generations were looking for. Before you make any changes or upgrades to your home, take a look at these five desirable features, and three you really should skip. 

  1. A Nice-Sized Yard
    If you're thinking about a home addition that creeps into yard space, you might want to reconsider. Surprisingly enough, the number one feature millennials want in a home is a nice-sized yard. Having enough room to add a garden and plenty of space for future kids to play were some of the reasons cited in research surveys. Millennials in general value the lifestyle that having outdoor space affords them. They also realize that you can always update the interior of a home, but you're stuck with your yard for life.
