Greenhouse

I find that a greenhouse is the forgotten garden feature. Not a lot of people have one in their garden, but they can be a real value booster for your property. The benefit of a greenhouse is that you’ve got a place to grow plants, vegetables, and fruit. People like this, so it adds to the value. Plus, a greenhouse adds to the visual appeal of your back garden too. And, the great thing is, you can build one by yourself, it’s not too difficult. The hardest part of the process is installing all of the glass window panes. But, with a few tips and tricks, you’ll soon be able to install glass like a professional. Speaking of which, you could get a pro to build it for you, but if you want to save cash then do it yourself. When it comes to increasing your house price, it makes sense to do what you can to save as much money as possible.

Decking/Patio

Another way your garden can increase house price is if you add a lovely decking or some patio to it. These two features will make your garden look a lot more classy and give it a boost. Plus, they let you do things that you wouldn’t be able to do without them. For example, patio/decking is the perfect place for an outdoor table to eat during the summer months. Similarly, get some outdoor furniture and you have the perfect setup for garden parties. Prospective buyers love it when a garden has decking/patio because it gives them the option to do stuff like this. As a result, the price of your house increases. Just like with a greenhouse, you can save money by installing patio/decking by yourself. Decking is probably the easier option, although patio can look better.

When you take all these things into account, it’s easy to see how a garden shed can increase your house price. The best thing is, garden sheds are easy and cheap to build. This makes them a cost-effective improvement, and you’ll reap the rewards from your hard work.

So, if you’re looking for ways to increase the value of your home, then turn your attention to the garden. I’ve given you three ideas for things you can build that will drive that house price through the roof. Don’t settle for less, sell your house for the maximum price you can.
