"Landscaping makes or breaks a property."

You may have heard it from others or from us, but landscaping is possibly the best way to increase the appeal of your property. When considering an extension of your house or rejuvenating its exterior, it is a no brainer that enhancing your landscaping is the more obvious way to excite your property. Whether you are selling it soon, are looking to flip a property or just want to add value long-term, landscaping is the best way to do it.

Let's have a look at the facts

Post Office, a UK financial institution conducted research on the best way to increase your property value. The findings of over 2,000 surveys are clear:

Potential increases in property value [Post Office Money]

Garden landscaping: 77 per cent Gym: 44 per cent Extension: 37 per cent Walk-in wardrobe: 34 per cent Jacuzzi/hot tub: 27 per cent New kitchen: 26 per cent Swimming pool: 22 per cent Basement conversion: 17 per cent Conservatory: 10 per cent Driveway: 9 per cent Wet room: 7 per cent

First Impressions Matter

One conclusion to draw from this study is that first impressions go a long way in the valuation of your property. The 'WOW' factor is what you should be looking for here. The initial impression stays with you and influences how the rest of the property or home is perceived. With high quality, robust products that are low maintenance and help improve your outdoor space by ridding it of invasive weeds or creepy crawlers, long-term value is added.
