5 Easy Gardening Tips To Increase The Value of Your Property This May
It’s May, the sun is shining brighter, the days are getting longer and we get to enjoy not one, but two Bank Holidays! That means there’s absolutely no excuse not to get the garden sorted. Right?
However, we like putting our feet up and taking those extra hours to relax just as much as anyone else so thought we’d ask a local gardening expert for some quick and easy tips to make big differences to those all important first impressions:
One: Get the driveway sorted
This is the first thing that any potential buyer will see when they pull up outside so, if you’re lucky enough to have one, you need to ensure it’s looking spick and span. Remove any weeds and give the drive a quick spray with the jet wash. It’s also good practice to park your own cars off of the drive when viewings are scheduled to give a bigger sense of space and allow for a potential buyer to pull right up to the house without any parking hassle.
Two: If you have front/rear lawn, make sure it’s cut and neat at the edges
Remember the lawn mower? It’s time to get re-acquainted. It’s easier to manage if you keep on top of it so it’s best to mow it frequently. The last thing you want to be doing is rushing home to tidy it before every viewing.
Three: Place a few colourful seasonal planters by the front door
It immediately illustrates that you take pride in your home. Visit your local garden centre to pick up some cheap and pretty pots you can pop by the entrance. It really is the little things!
Four: Get the garden furniture out from the shed

It’s May, summer is just around the corner. People are visual, so adding something as small as a table and chair can trigger those warm, summer feelings. The garden is just another room after all.
Five: Neat fences and tidy hedges are always an indicator of a cherished property
Another small job that doesn’t have to be done too frequently. Get on top of those hedges (literally) and apply a lick of paint to any fences that have been weathered during the winter months.
