Don’t neglect your garden

By Ray White Drysdale Customer Service

When you’re preparing your home for sale, it’s easy to forget about the benefits of an immaculate garden. Tidy green grass and a freshly cut garden can make the world of difference when selling your property.

Here’s five simple ways to prepare your garden for selling:

1. Free your garden from weeds

Start off by grabbing your gloves and getting stuck into the weeds and dead plants. It’s the little things that will make a big difference when you’re selling your home. A weed-free garden gives you a tidy area to work with before you move onto the rest.

2. Fertilise and water your grass

If you want picture perfect green grass, it’s worth putting some time and effort into fertilising and watering. Ask your local nursery for the most suitable fertiliser – this will differ depending on your location and the weather. You may want to set up a sprinkler or grey water system if you’ve got a large area to green up in a short period of time – these features will also impress buyers.

3. Purchase a couple of mature plants

Chances are, you won’t have much time to grow plants in the selling period. So, it’s the perfect opportunity to purchase a couple of new, mature plants that are suited to the time of year, and location. If your property is coastal, remember to purchase plants that’ll survive these conditions. Same deal if your property is in a dry, rural area.

4. Trim and whipper snip

As photography and inspection days creep up, be sure to mow your lawn and use a whipper snipper to trim the edges. Ahead of selling, it can be a good idea to get a professional in. They’ll know all the tips and tricks to perfect your turf.

5. If you have a furry friend, purchase ‘dog rocks’

Patchy grass can be quite off-putting. If you haven’t heard of dog rocks, they’re a product used to prevent your dog from leaving nasty stains on your lawn. All you have to do is place them in your dog’s water bowl. Easy!
