Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the garden and ensure plants are healthy enough to last through summer.
SPRING is my favourite time of the year and it’s a great time to be selling a home.
Here are my top tips on making the most of your garden at this time of year.
Ensure garden maintenance is up to date as a woolly looking hedge and lawn in need of a haircut screams "high-maintenance home" to potential buyers.
A healthy garden gives the perception of a well-loved home so feed all garden beds with a slow-release organic fertiliser and a liquid fertiliser at the same time.
The slow release will take you all the way through to the middle of summer and the liquid feed will give instant effects.
Mulch garden beds not only to benefit the plants, but also to improve the whole garden appearance. Go for mulch with natural tones and stay away from coloured varieties as they look inorganic and cheap.
Take advantage of all the amazing flowers available at this time of year and fill any empty spots in garden beds with something bright and eye-catching.
Annuals and colourful potted plants are coming into their own now, so pick some suited to your climate and put them by the front door to lift the mood before entering the house.
