Your focus may be the interior when it comes to revamping areas of your home to increase the value when selling. However, the exterior of the home is the first thing potential buyers see and first impressions last.
Keep Lawns Neat
Mowing your lawns may be an obvious measure to take, but sometimes the edges can be forgotten. Keeping the edges neat is a simple and effective way of making the entire yard appear well manicured.
Outdoor Entertainment Area
An outdoor entertainment area is a must for any home in Australia and is on many peoples lists when they are looking for a home. If your yard does not have much space, a small paved area with just enough space for a table and chairs will add so much value to the home. If your budget is tight, you can pick up low-cost recycled pavers from your local hardware store.
Weeding and Mulching
You will be surprised what a little bit of weeding and a layer of mulch can do! It will make the yard appear low maintenance and pleasing to the eye. Mulch works as a barrier against weeds and helps to retain moisture, meaning less time spent weeding and watering the garden.
Visit a nursery and select low maintenance plants that are tailored to Australia's harsh weather. If you are selling in the near future, perhaps purchase plants that are currently blooming to add an eye catching pop of colour to your home.
Power Wash Surfaces
Renting a power washer to remove grime from surfaces is an affordable and effective way to totally change the appearance of your yard. You can find power washers at Kennards Hire for under $50 per day.
