If you are thinking about selling your property all the good advice you receive will tell you to declutter, freshen up paint work, remove bulky furniture (make place look bigger), fix those annoying things so a prospective buyer is not thinking about the negatives. Make the path to purchase as free of obstacles as possible.
The same applies to the garden.
If a buyer approaches via an overgrown pathway with unkempt lawns and borders they are already thinking of (a) all the work they have to do when they move in or (b) how much they can negotiate off the asking price.
Selling & Buying
As a seller you want a buyer with positive thoughts. You want them thinking about your property and forgetting about the one they just saw or the one that is next on the list. With a well presented garden you may just achieve that goal and ensure that this particular buyer is ready to deal at your asking price.
A once-off clean up to neaten the place up, gather leaves, seasonal pruning & general preparation of the garden will help. Have the place looking neat and tidy rather than scalped and your selling experience will be very positive!!

Taking Care of Business
So while you are focused on having the interior of the house ship shape Green-Cube Landscape Services can be taking care of the outdoors for you. Typically pre-sale or letting work includes – clean out of borders & beds, weed removal, pruning & thinning work, grass cutting (if weather conditions allow), clean down of paths & patios, removal of all green waste for recycling.
A good thorough cleaning is often all it takes and for a relatively small investment we can turn your garden around in a day so your viewing goes without a hitch.
- Clear up fallen leaves – especially from lawns, ponds and beds
- Raise containers onto pot feet to prevent waterlogging
- Plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year
- Prune roses to prevent wind-rock
- Plant out winter bedding
- Cover brassicas with netting if pigeons are a problem
- Insulate outdoor containers from frost – bubblewrap works well
- Stop winter moth damage to fruit trees using grease bands around the trunks
- Put out bird food to encourage winter birds into the garden
- Use a Green Waste facility – to dispose of excess debris unfit for composting
As always should you require help or assistance with any aspect of the garden this month please do not hesitate to Contact me.
