This is especially true for waterfront homes and townhouses,” says Shannon Allen, a Realtor with Judy Boone Realty, who specializes in assisting buyers and sellers in the East Ocean View, Ocean View, and East Beach neighborhoods of Norfolk.

So, how do you stage your backyard without going over budget? “Purchase inexpensive plants and create a portable landscape display,” explains Shannon Allen. Keeping the plant cost down will allow you to buy more plants, which will make a greater impact. By making your creation portable, you can rearrange and regroup the layout to design new looks. You will also be able to take the entire landscape project with you to your new home. “Staging your backyard with a container garden is a wonderful idea to welcome potential buyers, but be sure to clearly state the containers and plants don’t convey with the home,” says Shannon Allen. “In fact, I recommend tagging all the plants and the containers you plan to take with you to your new home in order to avoid any confusion between you and the buyer.”
