We all know first impressions last and this is often the case when selling your property. Houses with lovely exteriors sell faster by getting buyers through your door. Planting, turf and a garden tidy up is often one of the most inexpensive ways to improve a home’s exterior.
Here are our tips when selling your property:
General tidy up – remove any weeds, dead branches, debris and leaves. Cobwebs removed from gutters. If you are pressed for time focus on the borders as this will create the illusion of a neat garden.
Pressure cleaning – blast any paths, tiles and paved areas to freshen and brighten up your outdoor space.
Plant – fill any gaps or spaces with new plantings. Look for flowers that are quick to grow and easy to grow. Consider hedges to cover eyesore or to increase privacy.
Lawn – At the very least mow and edge your lawn. Patch up any worn areas or you could oversow with a lawn seed blend. This will thicken up and green the lawn. Don’t neglect your council strip!
Mulching – applying mulch can help your garden appear low maintenance and well kept. Mulch can also make your garden look neater and allow your plantings to ‘pop.’
Fix – fix any obvious hazards such as rotting timber pergolas and fences, relay lifting paving or stones.
These simple tips will give your buyers a first impression they won’t forget.
