So it’s nearly May, I know we don’t feel like it’s spring with the very strange cold weather we have been having but it is on it’s way so now is the best time to get your garden spruced up and get it looking ship shape for marketing to take advantage of the many buyers entering the market wanting to be moved for summer!

Here are some tips to get your garden looking tip top!!


use this


Don’t neglect the front garden!!  This may seem obvious but when you are passing it every day this is usually the part of the house that can be left looking a little sad, a quick lick of paint on the front door and a sweep up of the leaves from the winter can really make a big difference.


Go potty!!  Buy a couple of small colourful plants to put by your front door, these aren’t a wasted expense as you can take them with you but will create a welcoming entrance to your home for perspective buyers


Get cracking with the decking!!  Decking that is left neglected can become slippy, mossy and unusable so don’t leave it to be damaged by the weather, give it a good sweep and give it a coat of oil which you can buy from any diy store, it will give it a whole new lease of life!


May seem obvious but give the lawn a good cut, we have had a lot of rain so most gardens we are seeing are well overdue a ‘hair cut’ give it a really good trim and shape the edges


Weed and tidy up and leaves and trees that have blown in


Even if the sun hasn’t come out yet get your furniture out!! Buyers like to visualise how they will enjoy the property if they were to buy it so help them on their way, you want to have them visualising a glass of wine in one hand and sitting looking out at their new garden, seeing that you sit out in your garden will help them visualise this!
