Top garden tips when preparing to sell:

We are almost into spring and it’s never been a better time to sell your home; a well-kept garden can mean a quicker sale and a higher price.

Here are some top tips:

  1. Cut the grass – It’s all about first impressions so make sure the grass is cut and it looks neat and tidy.
  2. Keep paving and patios pristine – Ensure all weeds are removed and paths and patios are jet washed. Use an old knife to help dig out weeds form the root in between paving slabs.
  3. Garden staging – like your home interior it helps to stage the exterior. Try setting out a garden table with plates and a jug and if it’s a family home, lay out some outdoor games or a swing.
  4. Spring flowers – Brighten up the garden with some flowers and plants; a super quick and easy way to transform the garden without it costing too much! Add some potted trees or box hedge plants your entrance.
  5. Paint – A quick fresh lick of paint will do wonders to brighten your home. Paint fences, sheds and trellises.
