There is no doubt that a beautifully landscaped garden can completely transform a property, creating an oasis in your own backyard. However, with the growing DIY gardening trends and homeowners often focusing on the internal aspects of a property, gardens are often neglected. With this in mind, we have put together five reasons why using a landscape designer can totally revolutionise your home.
- Increase Property Value
There is no doubt that a good landscape design can increase the value of your property, with some estimates suggesting increases of up to 15%. Using landscape design in your home can not only extend your living space by creating designated outdoor areas, but these additions withstand the test of time. While interior renovations can fall in value, landscape design tends to hold its value over time.
- Achieving Success within a Budget
There is often an opinion that landscape designing can be very expensive and out of reach for most people’s budgets. However, this is not the case, in fact, a good landscape designer is well versed in working to achieve transformations within a budget that suits you. This allows you as the client to create the garden design that you want for a price that you can afford. This is achieved with good communication.
- Creating Low Maintenance Spaces
A common concern that homeowners often have is that they will not have the time to maintain their newly landscaped garden over time. However, this is another benefit of hiring a professional landscaper experienced with design. This allows us to create a space which is both aesthetically pleasing but also easy to maintain. This can often be achieved using native plants or ultimately the correct plant selection, which are easy to maintain over the long term, require less water and are more resistant to weather change.
- Timely Projects
When taking on a DIY gardening project, there can often be no finish date in sight. However, working with a landscaper who has designed your new space gives you a clear understanding of the projects start and finish date. Additionally, working with a landscaper often makes for shorter projects compared to DIY options, allowing you more time to enjoy the beautiful, finished product.
- Creating Energy Efficient Gardens
With homeowners increasingly focused on how to reduce their energy costs while lowering their environmental impact, good design can create gardens which decrease energy costs. This can be achieved through a number of ways such as using natural elements such as grass and plants, creating efficient reticulation systems and the correct positioning of trees can all work together to use less water and cool your house and garden.
