Make the most of the home you own

With the current financial challenges, people are looking to make the most of the home they own by getting better value for money.

Extending homes has got more expensive.  So while additional inside space might be a nice, you can get more bang for your buck by making the most of your outside space.

Careful design avoids costly errors, can develop a plan that can be achieved overtime in a more affordable fashion. Often the space you have outside is larger than the space you have inside. So smart design will create outside rooms that can be enjoyed on all but the most inclement days.

Investing in your garden

Add value to your home and a good deal of pleasure in life by investing in your garden. A well designed and executed garden can add considerable value to a property. Sorting out the front garden for better kerb appeal can add up to 10% to your property value and improving your garden for all year round use can add up to 25%.

When you think that house extensions cost between £2000 and £4000 per m2. Whereas a garden will typically be a fraction of that, so you can gain much more usable space for significantly less cost.

So if you have a garden that is neglected, or could just be so much more, please get in touch.
