Outside of your home has a massive impact on how you feel about the house

There is certainly no shortage of things to keep you occupied this summer. The Euros, the Olympics, the General Election and whatever you are getting up to with friends and family members. In saying that, there is always a lot to like about sitting in your back garden and enjoying the sunshine.

In recent times, the role of the garden in the house buying process has strengthened, and it is easy to see why.

Gardens offer a return on your investment

The impact of the lockdown period, when outdoor space was at a premium, is still felt in the housing market. There was also a 2020 study undertaken by Opinium Research for Post Office Money. This study highlighted a range of home improvements a property owner could make, and the expected upturn in value it would add to the property.

The study found that spending £2,750 on garden landscaping services added 77% to the value of your home. This is a return that caught many people’s eye, and was a contributory factor to so many people upgrading their quality.

The good thing about this sort of improvement is that it offers benefits for you, no matter what your plans are. If you are solely looking at the short term, perhaps searching for a way to flip a property into profit in a relatively brief period of time, landscaping services can work wonders.

Then again, if you plan on staying in your current home for a longer period of time, having a stunning garden is of benefit. With summer tantalisingly close, you’ll likely want to spend a lot of time here if you can. Okay, you don’t have time to undertake massive renovations and reap the reward this summer, but if you’re solely thinking long-term, there’s no better time to start than now.

Alternatively, you can make a few minor adjustments at the moment and then once you have enjoyed this summer, you can commit to a larger improvement project that will transform your property.

There is significant buyer demand for homes in Wynyard

Given the demand for property in Wynyard right now, we aren’t saying you need to tackle a massive home improvement project to convince buyers to take an interest in your home. However, if you are in a competitive market, and you want the best possible return for your time, effort and money, going the extra mile pays off.

It is always best to speak with experts in the local industry, and if any of your neighbours have a garden layout you like the look of, try and find out who did theirs. Not everyone is too happy to share this information but by speaking to gardeners and landscapers directly, you can let them know the finished look you appreciate and wish to see.

The most important thing you should focus on this summer is having fun. We’ve all had some tough times of late and the beauty about having a great garden space is you can have fun without spending any money. Of course, for those who always have one eye on a property move or a goal, your garden might be the factor that helps you sell faster, sell for more, or enjoy the best return on your investment.
