Garden inspections are a crucial part of maintaining a healthy and thriving garden. These inspections aim to identify any problems or issues that can negatively impact the growth and health of your plants. They can be conducted by our certified inspectors and/or gardening experts. During garden inspections, several factors are considered:

  1. Soil Condition: The soil is examined to ensure it is fertile enough to support plant growth & pH levels. 
  2. Pest and Disease Check: Inspectors look for signs of pests and diseases that could harm your plants.
  3. Irrigation Systems: The effectiveness of your irrigation system is assessed to ensure proper watering without causing damage.
  4. Landscaping Elements: Paths, fencing, and other landscaping features are checked to maintain safety and aesthetics.

Why Garden Inspections Are Important

Garden inspections serve several purposes:

  1. Safety and Health: Inspections ensure that your garden is safe for both humans and animals. They identify potential hazards like poisonous plants or sharp objects.
  2. Early Detection: Inspections help catch damage caused by weather conditions or pests before it becomes a bigger problem.
  3. Compliance: Some inspections are necessary for permits or to comply with local regulations.
  4. Before real estate & garden sale. The garden inspection can also be done before the real estate sale. This provides an opportunity to prepare a garden maintenance plan and pre-sale garden general maintenance before selling the property with the aim of increasing the overall value of the property.

Boosting Real Estate Value Through Expert Garden Maintenance Services

When it comes to selling your home, first impressions matter. A well-maintained garden can significantly enhance your property’s appeal and increase its market value. Here’s how to prepare your garden for a successful real estate sale.

The Impact of Gardens on Property Value

  1. Landscaped Gardens: According to a study by Post Office Money in the United Kingdom, homes with landscaped gardens saw a remarkable 77% boost in value. Investing in your garden pays off, especially when potential buyers appreciate the beauty of well-designed outdoor spaces.

  2. Curb Appeal: Your garden is the first thing buyers see. A tidy, vibrant garden creates an inviting atmosphere and sets a positive tone for the entire property.

  3. Health and Well-Being: Exposure to greenery and gardening has proven health benefits. It lowers stress, increases vitamin D levels, and promotes physical activity. A flourishing garden contributes to overall well-being.

Essential Garden Maintenance Services Before Selling

  1. Lawn Care: Mow the lawn regularly, remove weeds, and keep it lush and green. A well-kept lawn signals that the property is cared for.

  2. Pruning and Trimming: Trim overgrown branches, shape shrubs, and remove dead plants. Pruned trees and hedges create a neat appearance.
