Easy Ways to Get Your Garden Ready for Selling in Spring

With the excitement of spring coming there’s no better time to sell your home. In winter gardens are often neglected, and they can be a huge selling point if maintained properly.

Here are some ways you can get your garden ready for selling in spring.

Tidy Up

After winter, your garden can be a bit messy. Giving the garden a good clean will help give your outdoor space a fresh atmosphere. If you have decking or a patio, use a pressure washer to spray away any dirt and build-up of grime. Make sure you keep the grass short; it looks tidier and more appealing when potential buyers are viewing your home.

Weeding

With summer on its way, getting control over your weeds will get the pathways and lawns looking their best. You can use a weed control product to help maintain any out-of-control weeds. This will help to increase your kerb appeal and let buyers know you maintain your outdoor space.

Garden Furniture

If there’s outdoor furniture, it’s important that it’s cleaned and freshened up. Clean any cushions, make sure you check their wash settings, and repair anything that needs fixing. Nothing looks worse than old, rugged furniture.

Paint the Fence

Your fence has probably been worn down by the winter weather. However, with a lick of paint, you can make a run-down fence look brand new and bright. This will show that your garden has been looked after and the new homeowner won’t have to factor in new fencing.

Lighting

Finally, fairy lights and solar lights are perfect for transforming your garden space. It’s especially nice if you have a slightly later viewing, you can show how tranquil your garden looks and that it’s a great space for entertaining.

We hope these tips will not only help you get the most out of your garden, but they’ll also portray it in the best light to buyers.
