Spring Gardens For A Superb Sale

Spring is the perfect time to shower attention on your garden and when selling property, it’s essential to make a strong first impression. So, if you’re planning an upcoming home sale keep reading for our tips to get your garden ready this spring.

First impressions last.

The first place to focus on should be your front entrance. Think about a thick, welcoming doormat, an umbrella stand, a stunning potted plant for instant appeal, a new doorbell, a fresh coat of paint for the front door, or even a new door. After all, a few relatively inexpensive strategies can really wow buyers – and pay for themselves many times over.

Weed, prune and tidy.
Winter’s rain gives birth to weeds, so now’s the time to tidy up garden beds, weed the lawn, clear out unwanted growth and any other rubble and debris, such as fallen flowers and branches. Prune trees, shrubs and bushes, such as camellia bushes, evergreen hedges and roses. Rake and clear pathways, decks and terraces, and whip into shape garden borders.

Fertilise and mulch.
Not only does adding fertiliser and mulch support new spring growth, it also renews your garden with a refreshed and well-kept appearance. Giving garden beds a dusting of slow-release fertiliser will also keep your plants well-fed and thriving throughout your homes sale campaign and beyond.

Inject colour.
Brighten up and delight with spring flowers and shrubs that add fancy and fragrance. Planting spring jewels such as daisies, dahlias, marigolds and lavender will enliven your garden and give your front entrance a delightfully welcoming appearance. Whether in garden beds or pots, blooms are a simple but impressive way to rejuvenate your outdoor space.

Attend to your lawn.
There’s nothing quite like a patch of thriving green grass to invite potential buyers to imagine their summer months relaxing in the garden. So, to get your turf tip-top, start by weeding, then aerate the soil with a garden fork (or specially designed shoes). Identify patchy areas and, depending how big they are, cover with healthy grass from an inconspicuous area or invest in some roll-out turf. Last, top-dress the lawn with a rake to even out any bumps and then fertilise for optimal results.

With these tips in place your garden is sure to wow potential buyers with it’s spring pazazz.
