The garden is usually the place that we leave until last when it comes to home improvements and whilst this is completely understandable, there is actually a lot to be gained from investing some time and money into the garden. Investar USA are a financial lender and a company who work on rejuvenating real estate, and we were fortunate to work with one of their team members to identify why garden investment is so worthwhile. Simon works in the fraud and claims department and he is a self-confessed garden aficionado, the perfect person then to talk to us about why you ought to think about giving your garden a makeover.
Unless you are convinced that you will stay in your property for the rest of your life, you will probably think about how much value you can add to your home when you are considering any kind for home improvement or remodel. You will be happy to know then that a well presented garden can most definitely add value to the property. In many cases you may even be able to recoup up to 50% of your investment in the garden, from the sale of the property.
It isn’t just the value of your home that you will be improving but also the attractiveness of the home and its salability. Recent studies have shown that across the USA people are looking for homes which have beautiful gardens which they can enjoy, and which don’t require much work on their behalf. Getting the garden in shape can boost value and your ability to get rid of the property.
Amongst the neighbors you will be a far different prospect if you have a stunning garden to show off and you may not think that you are like that, but wait until your garden is looking its best. You will want to invite people over for drinks and a BBQ just so that you can show off what you have achieved. There is nothing wrong with bringing some beauty to the street and you will be the envy of the others when you do so.
Prior to having my garden landscaped I never spent time there and this was the main reason why I waited so long to finally take the leap and invest. What I had failed to realize however was that the reason that I never spent time there, was because it looked awful and since I have had the gardening work completed, we use the space all the time. Now the kids play outside, my wife has a small herb garden and we even eat outside at least once or twice per week. When you give your garden a makeover you are essentially unlocking that part of the house and believe you me, you will enjoy that outside space once the work has been done.
