Transform Your Garden with These Summer Selling Tips

Transform Your Garden with These Summer Selling Tips

As the days continue to get longer and brighter, now is the time that many of us start to venture outside and make the most of our gardens. So, if you’re thinking of selling your home this year a Spring spruce up of your garden can make all the difference. 

A beautiful garden can increase your property's value and create a lasting impression on potential buyers. We’ve asked our experts to provide tips for improving your garden to sell your home this Summer. 

Add a splash of colour

One of the easiest ways to lift your garden’s appearance is by planting colourful plants and flowers. Choose plants that are in season and suited to your garden space. You can create a striking visual display by mixing and matching different colours and textures of plants.

If you’ve got a smaller garden, consider adding hanging baskets, potted plants, and window boxes to add more colour and interest to your garden. 

Keep it well-maintained

For many buyers a garden is high up the ‘must have’ list when looking for a new home and is often one of the first things they see when arriving at your home. Make sure your grass is mowed, edges trimmed, and weeds pulled. Regularly water and fertilise your plants to keep them healthy and prune bushes and trees to keep them neat and tidy. You can also pressure wash patios, decks, and walkways to clean away any dirt or grime. 

Create outdoor living spaces

Outdoor living spaces are becoming more popular, especially during the summer months. Adding a patio or deck to your garden and staging it with comfortable outdoor furniture can help create an inviting atmosphere. Consider adding a fire pit or barbecue to create an outdoor entertaining space. These additions can increase the perceived value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. 

Make the most of lighting

Outdoor lighting can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your garden. Use solar lights, string lights, or lanterns to illuminate walkways and highlight garden features. You can also consider installing a few strategically placed lights around the house to highlight its best features. Lighting can create a cosy ambience and make your garden more appealing during evening viewings.

Improving your garden’s appearance is an effective way to increase the value of your property and attract potential buyers during the summer months. By following these tips, you can create a beautiful inviting garden that will make your home stand out from the crowd. Remember, first impressions are crucial, so make sure your garden looks its best when potential buyers come to view your home.
