How can your outdoor space push up the value of your property?


There has been a big shift in the property market within the last few months which can be attributed to two key things: firstly the stamp duty holiday announced until 31st March 2021, and secondly the value of outdoor space to the potential buyer.

Many of us will be keen to take advantage of the change in stamp duty which could save buyers as much as £15,000 if they are buying a property of £500,000 or more. If you are looking to sell your house to move somewhere else or you are investing in property to rent out, one key feature that is attractive to potential buyers or tenants is outdoor space.

A recent report revealed that searches for homes with gardens on Rightmove is up 84% for renters and 42% for buyers in May compared to the same month last year. With this in mind, taking some time to smarten up your outdoor space could be a huge asset to you in securing interest in your property.

Create the right first impression with a smart entrance way

We have always been told first impressions are important, adding a smart gate can highlight your outdoor space and set your viewing off to a great start.

Moreover, a secure gate is very important to buyers in giving them confidence that the property is secure. To add that finishing touch, we offer a range of practical and attractive ironmongery products which are integral to the security and installation of your garden gate.


Do your fence panels need a refresh?

As seasons change and the summer planting dies back, your garden joinery will be revealed and you may find that it is looking a little worse for wear – now is therefore a great time to replace old fences or to add trellis and slatted panel screening.

Our RHS endorsed Prestige range is hand crafted in the UK and made with premium quality timber with a 12-year timber guarantee. Perfect for a letting venture to ensure that you won’t need to replace the panels for a long time.   


Create an interesting space that draws the eye

Structure is very important in creating an interesting and inviting space. Obelisks and arches are a great all year-round investment, in summer they provide excellent support for plants while during the winter they remain an attractive addition to any garden. All our products can be ready painted or stained from a selection of 10 colours.

Accentuate your property’s greatest asset

Spending time on your garden is a sure-fire way to make your property stand out from the crowd and capitalise on the quick movement going on in the property market.
