Upgrade your garden and increase your home's value

An outdoor living space is a top priority for renovators and home buyers.

Gardens can have a dramatic impact on the value of your home and that’s why sellers are investing in new garden paving, installing or upgrading existing patios as well as thinking about the kerb appeal of their front garden .

Houses for sale with appealing outdoor space go at premium prices.  A well-designed patio or an inviting garden path to a carefully placed arbour are not just bonuses for you; they will impress potential buyers.

Here's how to upgrade your garden, increase the value of your home and secure a sale!

Use garden walling to create order out of chaos 

A neglected garden is uninviting. It’s a telltale sign that a lot of work is needed and is bound to be less attractive to potential buyers.  A well-laid out, neat and organised garden, on the other hand, could just be the killer feature that clinches the deal!

You can make sure your garden is presentable and organised by investing in garden walling. Use low, easy-to-install garden walls to divide areas.  Create individual garden 'rooms' and show that your outdoor space is both accessible, easily-maintained and attractive to a new family.
