With summer on the horizon and flowers beginning to bloom, now is a great time to get beautiful photographs taken of your home and to really show-off your garden to people coming to view your property.

A well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing garden can make a lasting impression on potential buyers, enabling them to really picture themselves enjoying outdoor living in their new home.

Here are our top tips for maximising the selling potential of your garden: 

·       Declutter and clean: just as you would with your home, your garden can also benefit from some extra attention. Remove any debris, old pots or unwanted items as having a declutter will help your garden look more spacious. Put your gardening gloves on and give your garden a thorough clean by sweeping paths, washing patios and tidying up beds and borders. 

·       Lawn care: no matter the size of your garden, having a lush green lawn will always enhance your outdoor space. Invest time in mowing, edging the borders and digging up those weeds. Consider reseeding or laying fresh turf on any bare patches. And remember to regularly water your garden through the hotter summer months!

·       Get those odd jobs done: touch up paint, fix that fence panel and ensure outdoor lighting is functional. 

·       Adding seasonal plants and flowers: to inject colour and vitality to your garden. Choose a variety of blooms that will thrive and flower in spring or summer to add splashes of colour to your garden. Hanging baskets and potted plants can also help to add charm. 

·       The finishes touches: adding potted flowers and plants, installing outdoor lights or adding outdoor sofa cushions can really help to add curb appeal and show your garden in the best possible light. 

By investing some time into preparing your garden to sell you can really enhance its potential to help showcase your home to potential buyers. Getting your garden prepared ahead of time will also help you keep on top of it throughout the selling process.
