Quarter Of Homeowners Plan On Garden Makeover
Having a picturesque garden is incredibly important to homeowners, with many believing it says something about themselves if they have a well-kept lawn with pretty borders.
That is why as much as 25 per cent of property owners have opted to re-haul their garden in the last five years, Property Wire reported.
This is a considerable figure when taking into account the number of homeowners who do not have any outdoor space.
According to GoCompare Home Insurance, 68 per cent of home improvement jobs that have been undertaken since 2013 have been to make the house and its surroundings look better, while just 38 per cent have involved essential maintenance.
Indeed, having a garden makeover is just as popular as installing a new kitchen or fitting a central heating system, proving just how much homeowners prioritise well-looked after grounds.
The survey also revealed 16 per cent have installed a new shed or garden building in the last five years, while nine per cent have had patio or decking fitted in their garden.
Ben Wilson from GoCompare Home Insurance reminded property owners to make sure any major renovation work is protected by their insurance provider before going ahead with it. Otherwise, they risk invalidating their policy.
“You should also check that any tradesmen you use are qualified to carry out the work,” Mr Wilson stated.
