Patio Plants - Homeowners - JYB Realty

Patios offer stellar opportunities to add beautiful comfort to your outdoor living space, our real estate agents would like to share some ideas with you about how to use these spaces to their very best advantage. 

  • Discover the Versatility of Container Planters
    Just as you can move your furniture to change the look of the inside of your home, you can change the exterior with plants that can be moved. To ease this process, heavier plants should be placed on wheeled platforms. Placement and purpose of the containers can also serve a variety of functions. For example, you can define entryways with tall plants such as juniper or boxwood. Juniper can be easily shaped into column-shaped accents. Foliage and vines can define a wall surrounding your patio but are less mobile.

Butterfly gardens are not only visually interesting, but they are also beneficial for the environment. If you want a lovely garden that promotes a healthy landscape and great curb appeal, follow some tips from our real estate agents to create a stunning butterfly garden.

Grouping a variety of plants will create unity in your garden and cut down the distance that butterflies have to travel for nectar.

Buying a Flipped House - Atlanta, GA - JYB Realty

You're not alone if you're flipping and flopping over buying a flipped house. Is it a good investment? Bad investment? Safe or risky? Our real estate agents know it's a tough decision. The fact is that some flipped properties can be beautiful opportunities, while others are poisoned fruit to be avoided at all costs. As with any real estate purchase, due diligence and a cautious eye can help you choose the former and avoid the latter.

Atlanta homes for sale are a hot commodity, and many investors are purchasing distressed properties, fixing them up, and selling them for a quick, tidy profit. Some of these individuals devote significant care and attention to every last detail in the process. Wary of potential legal consequences, these individuals go through the home and properly resolve critical issues such as leaking roofs and faulty wiring. They secure the necessary permits and ensure the work is done by qualified, licensed, and insured plumbers, electricians, roofers, etc. But, these individuals and the properties they renovate, restore, and remodel are not the norms.

Sun Mapping - Homeowners - JYB Realty

If you've been looking at some of the beautiful landscaping surrounding many Atlanta homes for sale and wondering why some of them look so much nicer than yours, it may be a simple matter of sun mapping. That may sound like the latest hack, but it's actually a tried-and-true procedure used by the most successful gardeners. It's simply a method of identifying where to place each plant according to its sunlight needs. While there are gadgets available to do the job, most are a waste of money. They do measure the sunlight accurately, but they don't create the map that you will ultimately need. Why not enjoy your time outdoors and do the job right without spending a penny?

  • Sketch the area to be planted
    This may be a simple rectangle, but more than likely, there will be trees and walls that create shady spots throughout the day. These are the areas you will eventually identify and record. The map doesn't need to be exact or to scale as long as you can follow it later. One thing to consider is the shade that will be cast by the canopy of a tree without leaves. You may have to estimate.
