Spruce up your Outdoor Space

Take advantage of the time while staying at home during the pandemic to spruce up your outside space. If you are considering selling your property keep on top of tidying over the coming weeks to ensure your garden looks its best when it is time to go on the market.

Maintaining the upkeep of your garden and outdoor space right now will help in the later months and also boosts your positivity. Being in the fresh air and green spaces has a calming and soothing effect.

  • As the weather warms up it is time to start mowing and treating the lawn
  • Keep the edges of the lawn neatly trimmed
  • Weed beds and gravel patches. Start now and this will be easier to maintain through the summer
  • In the flower beds move any plants which are not in the right spot or have overgrown, filling any gaps in the beds and prune the existing shrubs
  • Sow seeds for summer flowers and herbs, in your greenhouse or on windowsills, to plant out later
  • Declutter the whole space. Flower pots can be cleaned now ready to plant up
  • Plan containers for summer colour
  • Create a seating area for alfresco dining and clean garden furniture
  • Maximise on a view, if you are lucky enough to have one

Making your home and garden look their very best really can add value. Preparation is key and now is the perfect time to spend doing just that.
