If you are going to remove any plants from your landscape and have not done so before, you must inform the buyer.

Remove any algae and leaves, and clean the filters to make sure that the water is clear. A water feature that isn’t looking good or functioning properly can quickly turn off potential customers.

You should take care of irrigation problems.

Repair any irrigation system problems. Repairs to an irrigation system can be costly and you don’t want to pass the cost on to the buyer. If you have an automated system, provide information about the irrigation schedule. Provide instructions on how your system works and suggest the same watering schedule as you have used.

Repair faucet leaks.

Leaking faucets can indicate other plumbing problems, which can cause buyers to be dissatisfied.

Water your plants at least half an hour before your scheduled time if you have received sufficient notice. Watering reduces the glare from paved surfaces and sends the message that your plants have been well-maintained. To show your irrigation system is working well, you might consider running it.

Label as many plants and flowers as you can.

You might also consider keeping a complete plant inventory in a scrapbook and leaving it on a table for potential buyers to peruse as they tour your house. This simple lawn care step, regardless of whether you are a gardener or not, can make a big impact on potential buyers.
