When preparing your home for sale, your garden is an important aspect of your property which shouldn’t be overlooked.

Aussies have always had a love of the outdoors. When they’re house hunting, the outdoor area often creates a sense of lifestyle for the property.

Families envisage their children playing in the backyard, first home buyers relish the extra space or downsizers may appreciate a low maintenance yard.

If you’re considering selling your home this Spring, here are a few easy tips to spruce up your garden for sale.

Create a veggie patch

More and more people are wanting to grow their own produce and a veggie patch can really make a property feel like home.

If you have the room, planting a small veggie patch with seasonal crops can highlight the lifestyle your home offers, as well as the desirable aspect of your garden.

Refresh your lawn

If your home is for young families, consider refreshing the lawn to appeal to these buyers.

Young families will look for lush grassy areas for their children to play, so regular watering, fertilizer and aeration can help bring your lawn back to life.

Make first impressions count

Front gardens are one of the first things buyers will see in photos online and when they inspect a property.

Take the time to weed garden beds, trim trees, add attractive plants or mulch to these areas.

Creating an inviting front garden will not only add kerb appeal to the home, but it will also establish a lasting impression with the buyer.

Remove garden litter

Over the winter months, dead leaves, sticks and branches will fall, leaving debris in the yard.

Rake up garden litter and remove leaves from the pool, so buyers can see the home is ready to move straight into and enjoy.

Complement your cottage

Character homes and cottages line many of the streets throughout Toowong, Taringa and the surrounding suburbs.

Establishing a cottage garden which complements the old English character of the home is another great way to prepare your yard for sale.

Meandering pathways, a combination of rosemary, lavender, camellias and garden benches will help create an enticing cottage garden.

Plant native trees

Native trees and shrubs flourish in their natural environment and provide habitat for local wildlife.

By adding Australian natives to your garden, you can create a drought tolerant sanctuary for birdlife and homeowners to enjoy for years to come.
