do gardens matter? absolutely!
Oftentimes, it’s the first impression before walking through the front door. More importantly, a well-tended garden adds value and desirability to a home. Do we tackle yards when prepping houses for sale? Most definitely. Jill and I are frequent visitors at Devil Mountain Wholesale Nursery in San Ramon where we hand pick ornamental trees, shrubs and ground-cover and load it all up in our “company” truck. Our hard-working gardening crew is known to weed, prune, mow, blow, plant, repair fencing, build beds, haul away debris, lay down tons of mini-bark and maintain the properties throughout the marketing period. Front doors are often painted a cheery color, pots are planted with overflowing flowers and fresh door mats are laid out for an overall impression that warmly says “welcome!”
