Are you in the early stages of planning a garden transformation? Whether you’re thinking of adding a garden building to an already-established space, or you want to overhaul everything and start from scratch, there are various factors to keep in mind. Chief among these is how long you plan to stay in your Cobham home. If you’re thinking of selling in the near future, you must work with landscapers and carpenters who can get the best possible return on your investment, be it garden patios, pathways or any other feature.
At Stonewood Carpentry & Landscapes Ltd, we fulfil two roles: one as a carpentry company, the other as a landscaping company. With our expertise in all aspects of hard and soft landscaping, we create stunning, highly functional gardens.
But how does this relate to your Cobham home’s value? If you plan to sell relatively soon, do garden buildings and other upgrades make a sensible investment?
Below, we have looked at how some of the services we provide as both a carpentry company and landscaping company affect your property’s market value. To speak with one of our carpenters or landscapers about your plans, call us on 01483 930 822 or 07976 740 128.
Creating a functional outdoor space is a brilliant first step when considering a garden transformation. The more usable and accessible your garden in Cobham is, the more appeal it holds, especially with prospective buyers. A well-planned landscaped garden acts as an extra room for socialising in the sun.
As any landscaping company will confirm, garden patios lay at the heart of successful gardens. In fact, according to a recent study, a quality patio came second in a list of the ten best garden improvements. It only placed behind a classic garden building – the shed.
There’s no definitive price on how much a patio will add to home value. Variables like property location and the quality of your landscapers cause fluctuations. However, the National Association of Estate Agents believe that a patio can add as much as £10,000 to the value of an average home.
When left in the hands of a competent landscaping and carpentry company, a landscaped garden can also increase value by up to 20%.
Adding a garden room, summerhouse or log cabin to your Cobham premises increases the practical square footage. Needless to say, this is always desirable. As a carpentry and landscaping company, some of the most popular spaces we create include:
For maximum value, you must hire a landscaping and carpentry company with a proven track record in garden buildings. Our team of landscapers and carpenters share over 20 years of trade experience, not just in outdoor structures, but garden patios, driveways, paths and more.
According to The Telegraph newspaper, a garden room can add significant value to your property. The example they offered claimed that an investment of £6,653 could add £35,611 to the average home.
Of course, the prices mentioned here are only a guide. For a more detailed insight into your own specific property and plans, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our carpentry and landscaping company.
