Gardens are an extremely important part of the home. It is the place where families grow vegetable patches together, where you can bird watch from the kitchen window while doing the washing up. It is a place where everyone can have their friends over to have gatherings around the fire with a few bottles of prosecco or a BBQ that your dad swears will be the best one yet because of his brand new BBQ tongs he bought for half price in a sale.
Because of how many memories are made and what an integral part it is to a home, there are more than a few reasons why you should transform your garden!
Here are just some of them!
Transforming Your Garden Creates a Nice Space to Enjoy
Having a garden is quite the luxury, especially when it comes to London, or even more recently, lockdown. Having your own outdoor space is not something everyone has, so definitely make the most of it. Browse the internet or social media sites such as Pinterest to get information on a specific vision or style you might like to incorporate while creating your new outside wonderland and go nuts! Something that reflects your vibe will also be great for you mentally.
Improving Your Garden Can Increase Property Value
Whether you are planning on selling your house or not at all, increasing your property’s value can only be a good thing. If this is something you are considering, there are some specific things to consider when it comes to transforming the garden, as some changes and additions will increase the value more than others.
Sturdy and tall fences are a great investment when it comes to improving both your garden and property value, and extra storage is always popular! Something else worth considering is a pond. While it is not exactly essential, people love living near bodies of water and having one right on your doorstep can increase your properties value by up to 15%! However, make sure your pond is well maintained to increase house value. You can do this by browsing Water-garden.co.uk which has all of the latest pond technologies.
Increase Storage Space Inside and Out
Transforming your garden can facilitate a new storage area which is so important for any property. Clearing out old brambles, rubble or anything that might be taking over the garden can make way for a shed or outside storage benches which can hold garden tools or other outside belongings. This then frees up space in the garden for other items such as garden furniture, or even space in the house if you have been storing everything in there!
Grow Your Own Food
Transforming your garden with raised beds can give you plenty of space to grow your own vegetables, fruits and flowers, which makes for a beautiful (and productive) garden. Long gone will be the days where you have to venture out to Tesco to buy a lettuce, and you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour right under your kitchen windowsill! There is plenty of advice, tips and tricks on how to start your new edible garden whatever the season – so get stuck in!
