Let us redefine your home’s first impression, ensuring that it reflects the warmth and charm that resides within. Trust Hire A Hubby to create an entryway that not only welcomes but also captivates, adding undeniable value and curb appeal to your property.
Keep it Private
Unless you are a bit of an exhibitionist, nobody wants to have their garden overlooked by nosey neighbours. There are steps you can make to keep your garden more private and shielded from view of others.
Erecting a fence is one of the most effective ways to create privacy. Choose a fence that complements your garden style, whether it’s a classic wooden fence, modern metal panels, or lush greenery with a hedge.
Privacy / Decorative Screens
Decorative screens can be installed as well as using bushes, trees and shrubs to create natural barriers. Bamboo is always a great choice for creating green privacy screens.
Construct a Pergola or Gazebo
Install a pergola or gazebo to add an architectural element while providing a sense of seclusion. Hang outdoor curtains or grow climbing plants for additional privacy.
Add Outdoor Furniture
Strategically place outdoor furniture like benches, screens, or even a gazebo to break sightlines and create secluded sitting areas.
Whether through natural barriers, structural elements, or a combination of both, a private garden becomes your personal retreat.
Make Your Garden a Practical Place
Maximising your garden’s potential involves more than just greenery; it’s about crafting purposeful spaces that enhance both lifestyle and property value. If you have ample space, strategically divide your garden into functional areas dedicated to entertaining, dining, and relaxation.
Designate a portion of your garden as an entertainment hub, complete with seating arrangements, perhaps around a fire pit or focal point. This sets the stage for hosting gatherings and creating lasting memories with friends and family.
Al-Fresco Dining Zone
A well-staged al-fresco dining area is a key selling point. Showcase the potential for delightful outdoor meals by setting up a charming dining space. Invest in quality furniture, accessorise with vibrant table settings for added allure.
Craft a serene relaxation retreat where potential buyers can envision unwinding after a long day. Lounge seating and cosy cushions can transform a corner of your garden into a peaceful escape.
Buyers consistently seek a property with versatile outdoor spaces. By thoughtfully dividing your garden into functional zones, you not only enhance the appeal of your property but also increase its market value. When staging your garden, think beyond the greenery – envision lifestyle, envision value.
Make Your Outdoor Area Secure
For those with aspirations of selling their property, catering to the needs of potential buyers with children or pets is a strategic move, and the security of your garden plays a pivotal role during property viewings.
Take a close look at your fences and gates; consider adding essential features like locks to ensure a secure environment. Beyond serving as a safety measure, a well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing fence contributes significantly to your property’s overall charm. A secure and appealing fence not only instills confidence in buyers with families but also elevates the value of your home.
Make security a selling point, and let your garden become a defining feature that resonates with every visitor.
Add a Focus
A focal point to your garden is worth considering, especially if budget stretches to it. A pergola, a garden office, summerhouse or garden room could simply be the answer.
Garden rooms are becoming a popular and cost-effective solution for those against home modifications. These stand-along buildings can double up as home offices, additional living areas to home gym usage.
As the trend of remote work continues to grow, a garden room or purpose-built garden office becomes an added attraction for young professionals or working parents, potentially increasing the property’s appeal.
A garden shed offers the practicality of being utilised for storage of lawnmowers, bikes, rakes and other garden equipment and furniture. Potential buyers place a lot of emphasis on storage so having a garden shed or any other outbuilding or garden room will certainly add value to your home.
