Top Garden Tips To Add Value To Your Home

Last Updated on : 12th May 2016

Spring is officially upon us! So get your gardening gloves on and start prettifying your outdoor space. If you’re trying to sell your home during the warmer months, a beautiful garden will translate to a quicker sale and the best possible price for your home.

Here are our top tips for making the most of your outside space ahead of spring viewings…


Top Garden Tips To Add Value To Your HomeCut the grass
There’s nothing worse than an overgrown lawn! Cutting the grass is a quick and easy thing to do that will neaten up your outdoor space and ensure your property stands out from the competition. If you want a more professional finish, use a half moon edger to create defined edges.

2Pristine patios
A dirty patio isn’t going to create a great first impression. We recommend removing any weeds, cleaning moss-covered paths and power-washing patios and walls.

Top Garden Tips To Add Value To Your HomeTidy up!
It may sound obvious, but it’s so important that your outside space is tidy. This means sweeping up leaves, stuffing that rusty barbeque at the back of the shed, and removing any broken pots or litter.

4Garden staging
Exterior styling is just as important as interior styling when it comes to selling your house. Get the buyer’s imagination racing, get out the garden table and chairs, setting it with placemats and pretty plates, a centrepiece and even a jug of Pimms! If it’s a family home,
lay out the tennis rackets and a swing set.

5Flower power
Bring some colour into your garden with some plants and flowers. Potted trees at the entrance of the home look wonderfully welcoming, and are a great way of making the entrance (or Portico!) look grander.

6A fresh lick of paint
Give your shed, fences and front door a fresh lease of life with a bit of paint. It will immediately make the space look neat and tidy and will help a buyer see that they can move straight in and start living.
