Garden makeovers

Summer has made it’s big arrival in the last couple of weeks and I for one am loving having the sun around, you wont catch me moaning about it being ‘too hot’.

A few years ago, all people did before getting the estate agent in and putting up the “For Sale” sign was to clean the lino and weed the front garden. However, more recently, the home stager has made some serious moves (and made some moves happen) in the UK property market.
