Clean Up Stones
Over time your patio stones are likely to have experienced a fair bit of weathering. Dirt and moss are the main culprits for making your patio look old and tired. There are various ways to clean your stones
but by far the most effective is a pressure washer. Buy, borrow or rent the equipment and see your stones come up sparkling.
Declutter and Tidy
We can sometimes end up blind to the clutter and mess we’ve grown used to. Look at your garden with critical eyes and work to sweep, tidy and declutter your space. If you have garden storage, make full use of it and, if not, consider investing in something that will help you keep things neat. There are garden storage facilities available for even the smallest of gardens.
Add Thrift Shop Finds
The interesting trinkets you find at flea markets and thrift shops can make great garden accessories. An old fireplace, an ornate mirror or even metal bird cages can all add charm and character to your outside space. And thrift shops are a great place to find unique garden containers
too. If your patio looks a little bare, this is a great way to introduce some interest.
Potted plants and herbs bring fantastic colors and aromas to your patio. If you’re not the most green-fingered of gardeners, go to your local gardening center and ask for advice. They’ll be able to tell you which plants are likely to be in flower and at their best around the time of your house viewings and which varieties are the easiest to care for. Getting your patio in order for home viewings is a great idea. You may also want to do things a little earlier so your home is looking its best for the property estimation
too. With your home looking good inside and out, finding a buyer is sure to be a breeze.
