5 Ways To Add Value To Your Garden
A garden is a prized asset for any homeowner and it can be a place for family, friends and pets to enjoy together throughout the year.
There is no doubt that space is a prized commodity, and effective use of your garden can add considerable value to your property.
With this in mind, we’ve outlined 5 effective ways to add value to your garden…
First things first, it is important to keep your garden well maintained. This can easily be achieved by professional landscaping and undertaking regular maintenance duties such as mowing the lawn and pruning your bushes etc.
Landscaping involves designing the garden, laying the structures and foundations and applying finishing touches such as planting and turfing.
A shoddy, unkempt garden (think overgrown weeds and knee high grass!) is enough to put anyone off a potential property, so if you’re thinking of selling, be sure to turn your attention this way.
You should also carefully consider the level of on-going garden maintenance that will be required. Ideally, low maintenance gardens are the most attractive option and will require the least investment in money and time in future. They will also be more attractive to potential buyers, who may otherwise be put off by the level of garden upkeep involved.
You should also take care to avoid opting for an overly ornate design. That is of course if you are looking to sell sometime soon. If selling is not on the horizon, you can act more freely with your choices. Generally though, personal tastes vary greatly, so a simple, yet well designed garden is best for all concerned.
2. Sheds & Log Cabins
Outdoor leisure and storage space is a valuable addition to any home, which is why sheds and log cabins are a good choice when it comes to further increasing property value.
A spacious shed will provide additional storage for garden tools, furniture, children’s toys and other items in need of shelter from the elements – a must have for today’s homeowners.
Log cabins tend to be a more high-end and versatile choice, which lend themselves nicely to becoming a studio, garden office, playroom or general chill out space for outdoor entertaining.
3. Patios and Decking
Patios and decking are the perfect outdoor flooring options designed to be enjoyed throughout the year. From BBQ’s in the summer to cuddling up under the stars in the winter, they are a greatly loved outdoor space for many wishing to make the most of their garden.
4. Quality Fencing & Security
Framing your garden with a quality and rigid fence will help to promote a positive impression, as well as protecting against intruders or even rogue neighbourhood pets.
Garden security is important, be it a lock on your side gate, a security light, CCTV cameras or taking other adequate measures. All will offer reassurance to potential buyers, who will be safe in the knowledge that their new potential home is secured.
5. Outdoor Lighting
The provision of outdoor lighting will help to ensure that your garden can be enjoyed well into the evening. This simple touch can help to further increase your properties value.
Remember, think simple and try to avoid over the top designs. Instead, go for something classic and in-keeping with the style of the property.
