You can, but you likely won’t need to. Landscaping, like trees, shrubs, or perennials, is treated as a fixture in an agreement of purchase and sale. You wouldn’t expect the seller to remove lights permanently wired into the ceiling of your new home. Similarly, inground plants are considered part of the property when you make an offer to purchase.
Removing wired ceiling fixtures alters your new home in the same way removing inground plants alters or may even damage the landscaping. It changes the property’s curb appeal, potentially making it less desirable for you.
A seller can specifically exclude landscaping they want to remove before you take possession. That must be stated in the agreement of purchase and sale. As a buyer, you can include landscaping in the contract by outlining your expectations for the home’s exterior appearance. Your contract is legally binding, and items included, excluded, or generally accepted to be part of the property must be intact on the day you move in.
Taking photographs of the yard when you make your offer can be helpful. You can also arrange with your real estate agent to make a pre-closing visit to inspect the home and yard just before your real estate transaction concludes. If landscaping you expected to be included is missing or damaged, talk to your real estate agent about your options.
