Good Garden Advice for Selling your Home – part 1

Does your garden help to sell your home?


Look out of a window at your garden, shut your eyes, then open them again…what is the first thing to catch your eye..


If it’s something really pretty, eyecatching or interesting that’s great… but what if it’s not? 

More importantly what will prospective buyers see?


The neighbours windows overlooking your garden…

or will it be the fences, more fences and the garden boundaries,

perhaps they see you don’t like your garden much?

Or that you can’t keep on top of it

or perhaps there’s nothing much for them to see at all…

So will your garden help or hinder your sale?


Remember you are SELLING your home, not sitting passively in a corner waiting for someone to buy it and there’s lots you can do to ENCOURAGE THE SALE.

The basic principle is to draw your buyer’s eye to something YOU WANT THEM TO NOTICE. You ‘guide’ their view of your garden to the best bits and make those really positive. That’s the bit they will remember about your garden.

We have some top tips to help your garden help you sell your home, each guide deals with a specific problem, and shows simple easy (and inexpensive) ways to ensure your garden helps to sell your home.
