Richard Spencer's curator insight, January 5, 9:37 AM

My view

Is  that first impressions  always  sell  the  house.

The  buyer  just  managed  to  budget  for  his  dream  home  he doesn't  want  particularly  to  spend  the  rest  of  his cash  on  his garden  leaving  him  nothing. So  doing  the  front  garden  out    sells  the  property  then the  second impresions  is  a  manageable  back  garden until you  get  more  venterous  and  start to  put  your  stamp  on  it

For front &  back  garden  clearence  call  RS Garden Care  Services
