Summer is almost here, and we can't wait to soak up the sun and bask in the glory of our gardens again. Fact is, gardens are a big deal when it comes to selling your home. Your front garden is like a red carpet, rolling out the welcome mat for potential buyers, whilst your back garden doubles as an extra room, inviting friends over for a BBQ or just lazing around in the sun. In fact, your garden could very well be the deciding factor that swings a deal in your favor and even adds value to your home. So, how do you turn your humble abode into the envy of the whole Richmond Borough with some outdoor magic?
Your garden should be considered as one of your home’s biggest assets and, therefore, needs to be loved and cared for, just like your kitchen or bathroom. In fact, a good garden can increase the value of your home by up to 77% according to research by The Post Office. You don’t need a designer budget or luxurious finishes – there are a number of cost-effective changes you can make that will always benefit the sale of your home, and make buyers extremely happy.
Small changes can often have the biggest impact. Take mowing the lawn– while a neatly cut lawn is a great start, why not switch things up this May? Participate in No Mow May to keep your garden wild, allowing wild plants to flourish and providing nectar for insects. Even if your lawn looks more overgrown than usual, it adds character and showcases your garden's unique beauty
Designing a garden is no less than decorating a room with colours, textures, and a perfect furniture layout. With distinct areas, luscious greenery, vibrant hues, and fascinating add-ons like cushions, lanterns and throws, your outdoor ‘room’ will be brimming with life and warmth!
No garden is complete without storage space! Whether it's a secret shed nestled in a far-off corner, or an outbuilding of some other description, you'll need somewhere for all your gardening gear. Plus, who wants to lug their BBQ, garden furniture, bikes, cushions, and other bits and bobs indoors after every use? Keep everything at the ready in a designated storage spot!
When it comes to your garden, privacy and security are two big priorities for buyers. But don't worry, there are loads of ways to make sure your garden is a secluded sanctuary! You can get creative with planting, try out some bamboo screens or trellises with climbers. Don't forget about security! Make sure your gates and fences are in tip-top condition, and add lights where you need them, just to be safe.
In the upcoming months, buyers will undoubtedly place a significant emphasis on the outdoor space provided by your home. Don't miss the opportunity to make your garden work for you; it can not only add value but also give an additional room to your home.
