What is garden landscaping?
Landscaping may be a term you’ve heard thrown around in the past, but what does it actually mean? In the simplest terms, landscaping means making either practical or visual improvements to a space, commonly a garden, that is located outside of your home.
How good garden landscaping can increase property value
Whilst you may be thinking of your garden landscaping from a purely personal standpoint, it’s also worth considering how much financial return you’ll get on your investment if you ever choose to sell your home. In fact, good garden landscaping can boost your property value by up to 20% according to research conducted by Sellhousefast.co.uk.
Of the 36 estate agents, garden designers and property professionals consulted, 76% said that good quality patio paving could add significant value and 58% said that a water feature such as a pond or fountain was also a worthwhile investment. With 37% more people hoping to spend more time outside, garden landscaping is certainly something you should be considering if you are looking to sell.
What are some other common landscaping features?
Paved walkthroughs are very popular landscaping features for many gardens. Not only to they help separate and mark out your garden, they also suit most decorative styles because they can be made from a broad range of materials, such as gravel or paving slabs. Each material creates a different visual effect, which means that you can choose the best one to suit your ideals.
Flowerbed edging is a popular landscaping option because it can help draw the eye to your flower beds and make them look more organised at the same time. Edging is another feature that is totally flexible to your personal preference and can be made out of a broad range of decorative stones or from oak planks.
