Purchasing a property comes with a huge amount of financial responsibility. From insuring the bricks and mortar to maintaining the fixtures and fittings, becoming a homeowner can be extremely expensive. However, maybe it’s time to transform your garden.
When you own a house, it can be easy to get carried away with designing and renovating your living space, but don’t forget your garden! We have an experienced team of landscape gardeners in Bristol to help you out.. In this article, we will explore five reasons why you should have your garden landscaped.
It can add value to your property
Making sure that your garden is in tip-top shape will increase the value of your property – according to CJ Hole, a nice, well-maintained garden can add 20% value to your property.
One of the first factors a real estate valuer will take into consideration is whether the driveway and the garden are in a useable condition. As well as assessing their safety, the valuer will look for any modern or unique features that may set your property apart. A contemporary garden design may even help to sell your property faster. Most buyers are willing to pay a premium for a property that does not require a significant amount of renovation.
If you are planning to rent out your property in the future, setting the foundations with a bespoke garden design would be an excellent start to life as a landlord-to-be. When you become a landlord, there is a whole heap of legislation and health and safety regulations that you will need to follow. Our landscapers in Bristol highly recommend that you ensure that the garden and the driveway are safe and hazard-free.
Your quality of life will improve
It is a well-known fact that spending time outside can significantly improve your quality of life. Cooping yourself up inside is not ideal for either your physical or mental health. Even a simple cup of tea in the garden can be both relaxing and therapeutic. However, a garden with six-foot-high weeds is probably not a suitable environment. As we go into 2021, perhaps it is time to create an environment that will promote a happy and healthy lifestyle. In the hustle and bustle of Bristol, a quality landscape is a perfect escape!
Think about the BBQs
Okay – picture this… It is a warm summer’s day. You and your friends are off work and it is way too hot to be stuck inside. Instead, with a bespoke garden design, you can invite your close friends and family around for a memorable summer BBQ. We offer everything from spacious decking, all types of paving and a range of fencing options to improve your garden for summer.
Health and safety
When our Bristol landscape gardeners ask homeowners why they would like their landscape redesigned, there are two common answers: (a) to improve it aesthetically, and (b) to tailor the design to their specific requirements. With age, we all become more susceptible to trips and falls, so it is a wise idea to ensure that your garden’s design is suitable for your requirements. It is important to take into consideration factors such as trip and slip hazards such as unsuitable paving or tree roots. We are proud to specialise in the creation of accessible garden designs in Bristol. If you would like to discuss your unique requirements, you are more than welcome to schedule a consultation.
The world in which we live is in grave danger and at Aspects Landscaping we are committed to sustainability in everything that we do. As well as the immediate tangible benefits of a bespoke garden design, we urge you to consider the future too. Having a garden is an opportunity for you to shape a piece of land that is your own, you can do with it whatever you like. In this era of climate change, more and more people are using their garden to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. There are many features that you can incorporate into your garden’s design to do your little bit for the environment. From the inclusion of a vegetable patch to hanging a bird feeder or insect hotel, even these little details can make a difference.
