The Driveway & Garden
The surface of your driveway should be clean and well maintained. The street view of a property is one of the first things a buyer sees and gives them an idea whether the property is easy to maintain.
Sweep and wash the driveway and walkways to remove debris, dirt and stains. Remove any oil stains if possible. Repair and patch any cracks, edge the sides and pull up any weeds.
STEP 10Ensure the grass is neatly mowed, raked and edged.
STEP 11Add Cypress Pine mulch around your shrubs and trees to instantly freshen and renew garden beds. The Cypress Pine smells lovely and it also is a great mulch that keeps termites at bay. Expand your garden beds if you have the room. Large garden beds add a sense of space and privacy and attractive contours can make your garden seem much larger and welcoming.
STEP 12Prune and shape shrubbery and trees to complement your house. Consider adding seasonal flowers to your garden. Choose plants that suit your local climate and have attractive flowers and pleasant fragrances, such as Lavender, Jasmine, Grevilleas and Acacias.
STEP 13If you have room, add a sense of lifestyle to your backyard, by setting up your badminton or volleyball net to suggest a scene of family fun.
