But don't just go for the cheapest mulch option as you never know what pests you may be introducing in that mulch. This could impact on your building and pest inspection at the final hurdle. Choose a quality reputable mulch. Cypress mulch is naturally termite resistant and deters cockroaches and other insects whilst bringing a fresh aromatic feel to your garden and home. It will also last a lot longer for your next tenant or for a month or two of inspections if it goes to auction.
A 1" thick layer over the garden is enough to make your garden and home look amazing for those online photographs, newspaper adds and when the weekly inspections begin. So a few hundred dollars in preparation before selling could add thousands to the end sale price. So go out and Refresh Your Garden pre-sale.
