How landscaping can increase your property value

Landscaping your garden could increase your property value by 77 per cent, according to new research! *

The next time you want to add value to your home, consider outdoor improvements such as planting beautiful new flower beds, adding a sturdy decking, laying down a patio, or opting for water features.

Garden renovation projects can be a cost-effective way to increase the value of your property – and can even be done as do-it-yourself projects. Landscaping and outside design makeovers add a spark to the property and very often that means achieving a higher sale price. First impressions count, so don’t underestimate the power of curb appeal and landscaping. And these projects can even have a double whammy value factor by adding function, as well as style.

Here's our top ideas to add that wow factor…

· Stepping stones and sleepers

· Raised vegetable gardens

· Create shaded outdoor living

· Build off street parking

· Build a fence

· New plants

· Painting

· Lighting
