Summer Garden Upkeep: Why It Matters (Especially for Empty Homes)

Summer is a time for blooming flowers, lush lawns, and enjoying the outdoors. But for unoccupied properties, a neglected garden can quickly become an eyesore, deterring potential buyers and creating security concerns. Here's why regular garden maintenance is crucial, especially during the summer months:

  • Reduced Curb Appeal: A well-maintained garden is the first impression a visitor gets of your property. Overgrown hedges, weeds taking over flower beds, and an unkempt lawn all create a negative impression. In a competitive market, a tidy garden can make all the difference in attracting buyers.

  • Security Risks:  Unattended gardens with overgrown shrubs and trees can provide hiding places for unwanted guests. Regular trimming keeps visibility clear, making it less appealing for potential intruders.

  • Pest Control:  Summer's warm weather is prime time for pests like insects and rodents. Dense foliage provides them with shelter and breeding grounds. Keeping your garden clear discourages them from taking up residence.

  • Plant Health:  Just like us, plants need proper care to thrive. Regular trimming and weeding during the hot summer months ensure they receive the sunlight, water, and nutrients they need to stay healthy and vibrant.
