The garden of a home can affect the way a buyer sees the property. The house and the inside is what really matters of course, but if the garden isn’t up to scratch this can affect a decision to buy. In fact, the garden plays a big part in something called ‘curb appeal’. This is how appealing your house is from the outside. Does it make viewers want to come inside and explore further? If not, you’ve got some work to do. Here’s how to make your garden more desirable for buyers:
Get Rid of Weeds
Weeds aren’t pretty, and they can seriously ruin the look of a nice garden. If you have back problems you might want to get somebody to help you as weeding can take up a good part of the day and leave you with a bad back. Place a cushion under your knees to make it slightly more comfortable for yourself and try to keep a straight posture. Try to pull them out at the root to eliminate them for as long as possible.
Throw Away Broken Pots and Accessories
If you have any broken pots and accessories in the garden, don’t forget to get rid of them too. You may also want to love for old pet toys and anything else that could be cluttering up the space. If there are pet toys and other things you don’t want to get rid of but they don’t add to the aesthetics of the garden, throw them in the shed.
Plant Colourful Plants
Colourful plants are a fantastic way to draw in buyers. You could find any house to buy in Swinton, but the most popular one will be the one with colourful flowers in the garden. Make sure you choose species that are easy to maintain so that you don’t have to spend too long watering them and propping them up with bits of bamboo. You can also plant trees and greenery.
Add Water Features
Water features instantly add a calming, tranquil feature to the garden. Whether you choose a small birdbath, or a large fish pond, it’ll make your garden look beautiful.
Try paving some of the areas of your garden that aren’t so good looking. You could even replace current paving slabs to make it all look more professionally done. It’s up to you on the kind you choose. Remember, you can create just about any look you want. Stepping stones and small pebbles built into the pavement looks amazing!
Add Bird Feeders
By adding bird feeders to your garden, you’ll instantly add more life. Birds will flock to your garden, and other insects and animals might too. This will make your garden look even more beautiful!
Create a Seating Area
All amazing gardens need a seating area. You can make this look however you choose, from chic and modern to laidback and bohemian. Include comfy seating, a table, and perhaps even elements from indoors, like mirrors.
