You’ll want to make sure that every blade of grass is immaculately trimmed if you’re trying to attract potential home buyers to your property. But, beyond this, what else can you do with your garden to increase the value of your home?
Landscaping is one of the key ways you can give a boost to your property’s value, but the idea of it can be a little daunting. If you’re unsure how to unleash the power of landscaping to increase your property’s value, this is the blog that will help you.
Below you’ll find all the ways you can harness the power of landscaping to your advantage and increase your home’s value. Take a look.
Install outdoor lighting in your garden landscape
There’s something quite captivating about a well-lit garden. Outdoor lighting is beneficial for various reasons and also adds value to your property in many ways. Not only does outdoor lighting repel thieves and burglars, but it also gives your home a more contemporary appeal.
Another advantage of outdoor lighting is that if you have steps in your garden, you will have no problem seeing where you are going at night. Each of these advantages means that outdoor lighting is one of the top ways to increase value to your home with an outdoor landscaping project.
Construct a new fence for your outdoor space
According to HomeHow, a solid wall for your front lawn could cost £240 to £520 for a 1m high x 4m long wall and there are plenty of other cheaper options available such as an iron fence.
Getting a new fence built for your outdoor space is a great option for adding sophistication and appeal from the very moment your potential home buyers see your property for the first time.
Add a coat of paint to your fences
Alternatively, painting your existing fences can also add value and save you money. It’s true that the borders of your garden might sometimes get overlooked. They’re not always considered the most eye-catching part of the garden – right? But to a prospective home buyer, every detail is important. That’s why painting your fences is a great idea.
This approach doesn’t cost you too much money or effort. What you’ll achieve in the process is a modern, up-to-date look that frames your outdoor landscape perfectly.
You’ll also cover any imperfections in the woodwork. Choose the right colour and modernise your fences with a coat of paint to add value to your property
Consider adding a patio or barbecue area
The great thing about adding a patio or barbecue area is that you'll maximise our outdoor space and help the new homeowners get the most out of it. Patios are the perfect places to rest and relax after a hard day’s work. Their appeal and charm to prospective home buyers go without saying.
If you’re a seasoned home renovation expert or a professional landscaper, grab your tile saw and start creating the slabs for your patio area. If not, hand it over to the experts and watch as your home increases in value.
A basic patio that requires no excavation will cost around £900 to £2,500. It’s a worthwhile investment in the long run that will add value to your property and bring the next homeowners plenty of joy.
Add an exterior kitchen
Then, you might think about adding an outdoor kitchen space to really wow potential home buyers. To do it, you’ll need to choose the perfect outdoor location, put together a landscape design that includes your outdoor kitchen and put the plan into action.
Always think twice before making final decisions such as an exterior kitchen, though, as there are many styles to choose from. Is a pizza oven too extravagant for the landscape and outdoor space? Would an outdoor fireplace better suit the exterior garden? These are decisions that can impact the value of your property.

- Constructing a new outdoor fence or painting your existing fences
