Ok, as for the plants and front yard lights and dishwasher, i would look at the real estate contract and determine if the sellers informed you they were taking this.  If not, then i would write them a letter or to their lawyer and indicate that they took items that belonged to you and that you expect them to either reimburse you or you will file suit.  You may have a valid lawsuit against them as you can probably say that these were fixtures to the property.  However, it is not worth spending the money to hire a lawyer to fight about this.  Have your lawyer send a letter hoping to scare them into giving you some money to buy a new dishwasher and some plants...  There is not enough money here worth fighting over...
