If you're planning on selling your home this summer, have you taken a moment to think about the exterior of your home?
While it can be easy to focus your energy on the inside of your property, it shouldn't be forgotten that prospective buyers are likely to drive-by to see whether it is worth inspecting further.
With this in mind, it is a good idea to embark on some garden landscaping to ensure the outside of your home looks its best.
A garden can make a huge amount of difference to the aesthetics of a home – why not plant some bright summer plants in the front flowerbed to brighten things up?
Now is the perfect planting time for sunflowers, petunias, marigolds and begonias – all of which will inject a burst of colour into the garden.
Boosting your dwelling's street appeal goes further than planting a few flowers. You may want to give the outside of your house a fresh coat of paint, or at the least the window trims and front entrance.
Installing lighting is also a good idea – solar lamps are perfect for the garden, and a hanging shade will complement the entryway.
Taking some time to make your home more inviting will ultimately ignite more interest from potential buyers!
