Landscaping Can Increase The Sale Value Of Your Property

Landscaping Can Increase The Sale Value Of Your Property

Landscaping and making improvements to your garden can significantly increase the value of your property. However, you shouldn’t carry out work without having an idea of what the financial rewards will be.

Here are some things to think about before planning any landscaping changes to your property:

Think About Your Demographic

Will your home appeal to professionals, families, or young couples? Different buyers will want different things from a property, so you should know your market and aim for a coherent appeal, inside and out.

A well-designed garden could add an extra 10% to your house price. Make clever use of the space in a way which will appeal to your target market.

Families will want a garden which is safe but functional. Aim to create clearly defined areas. Consider all the different uses of a family garden. Spaces for entertaining guests such as a bbq area etc are desirable, as are spaces for children to play.

A garden with a combination of grass and patio or decking area will have huge appeal, especially with families. However, it is a good idea to create a low maintenance garden space if your property is to appeal to professionals.

Give Your Garden a Purpose

Another option is to make your garden an extension of your house by adding a conservatory, increasing your living space. This is an expensive job to undertake but, if done well, can vastly increase the value of your property. A good conservatory should blend seamlessly with your house and will often serve to enlarge a ground floor room, such as the kitchen or dining room.

A cheaper option is to build a summer house. With the addition of a patio heater and comfortable chairs you can create a functional and peaceful alternative setting for use all year round, which will appeal to all buyers.

Ensure a good job is done and improvements to your outside space like those mentioned above could increase the value of your property by 15%.
