If you are a homeowner in Canberra and are planning to increase the value of your property, we suggest that you upgrade your outdoor space. This might include making your garden more attractive, as it can add as much as 10 percent to the value of your home.
Here are some cost-effective tips to spruce up your garden:
Creating a grand entrance to your home
Potential buyers or guests want to see something extraordinary when they go to your property. For this purpose, you should create a grand entrance to your home. Slow-growing alpine plants and conifers will do the trick. In fact, these plants will often grow about 7 to 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide, and they often give a welcoming ambiance that your guests will surely love.
Removing those overgrown shrubs and trees
Overgrown shrubs are not pleasant to the eyes, so you should not overlook your pruning chores because this will make your garden look neglected and dirty. Therefore, it’s a must to maintain your garden, and it’s also a great way to spend your lazy weekend with your buddies or family.
Adding outdoor container plants and mulch
Large tropical plants can add allure and contrast to your doorways and patios. Adding these container plants will surely wow your potential buyers when they enter and exit your home. In fact, these plants can make your home more inviting to your guests.
We also suggest that you add different types of mulch in your surrounding areas because it enhances the contrast in your home, especially if they are combined with various breeds of container plants. Not to mention that mulch is cheap and easy to apply.
The magic of decorative pots
If the plants in your garden don’t look as good as they should, then it’s time to replace them with decorative pots. Although you don’t need to remove these plants, you just need to relocate them to another area. The best thing about decorative pots is that they add variety and ambiance to your garden.
Vertical plants grow upright, giving them the capability to sprawl out in your garden nets, trellises, and fences. Examples of these crops will include cucumbers, spaghetti squash, peas, and pole beans. Vertical planting is a great way of saving lots of space and makes weeding a lot easier.
Leave a sweet spot in your garden
Gardens are magical places where you can enjoy nature right in your own backyard. Therefore, you need to beautify it by adding cheap decorative chairs and tables where your guests can sit and smell the flower or just enjoy their time when they visit your home.
Resurfacing and repairing your pathways, driveways and other outdoor areas
Another important thing to do to increase the value of your property is to repair, resurface, or place your damaged and old-looking outdoor areas and driveways. You can have an elegant and great looking driveway or patio through concrete resurfacing, or replacement with new decorative concrete.
There are several options to choose from when you repair, replace or resurface your outdoor areas. You can either choose exposed, stencilled, stamped, stained, or stencilled concrete with colour added. Although before you start this project, you need to seek the help of a professional and experienced contractor since they can determine if your surface or landscape is a good candidate, while also suggesting which materials are best for your property.
Overall, maintaining and improving your garden or any outdoor area is likely to increase the value of your property. Canberra Concreting can help you create and maintain your pathways, patios and driveways.
