3 Reasons to Renovate Your Garden

Garden renovations are often put off because they’re ‘not essential’ but having a well-designed, usable garden space has a number of benefits. If you’re on the fence about starting a garden renovation and looking for reasons to make a start, you’ve come to the right place.

1. You’ll spend more time outdoors

One of the main benefits of renovating your garden is that it'll encourage you to spend more time in it. When you have a garden space that demands a lot of work and doesn't give much back, it can be easy to avoid it altogether. Spending time outdoors is so important, especially for children. Being outdoors encourages curiosity, and learning, and gives children a chance to run around. There are lots of children who have lost touch with nature and the great outdoors, so renovating your garden will give them a new safe space to explore.

Adding a garden room to your outdoor space can further enhance the benefits of spending time in your garden. Garden rooms come in various styles, from traditional summer houses to modern, contemporary designs. They can serve as a cozy retreat for relaxation, a workspace for those who prefer an outdoor office environment, or even a playroom for children to explore their creativity while still being connected to nature.

One of the advantages of garden rooms is that many designs fall under the category of permitted development, meaning you can determine the size of a garden room without planning permission. In most cases, a garden room can be up to 2.5 meters high and occupy no more than 50% of the total land area around the original house.

Being outside in the garden to relax or to work out also promotes better mental health and general fitness. So, whether you’re an adult or a child, renovating your garden will offer lots of benefits. Why not add a new lawn, a summer house or garden room or some flower beds that the children can get involved with?

2. You’ll increase the value of your house

Homes with a nice garden space are ultimately worth more money when they’re on the housing market. There are a lot of potential buyers that want their new house to be in an attractive, easy-to-maintain state and they’re willing to pay more to get it.

Adding high-quality features to your home like composite decking and porcelain paving is a great way to improve the value of your home. Composite decking, in particular, can last for up to 30 years and requires minimal maintenance so is a much more appealing feature than plastic or timber decking.

Investing in your garden means that you can enjoy the space while you’re living there and you’ll make money back when you come to sell the house in the future.

3. You’ll be able to entertain guests

Another great reason to renovate your garden is so that you can entertain guests more often! During 2020, we’ve had to use our gardens as meeting places more than we’ve ever done before.

While there’s hope that things will return back to normal in the new year, there are bound to be people who still want to meet up in their gardens for a little while longer.

A great way to make your garden ‘guest-friendly’ is to add a sheltered space like a glass garden room. This space will keep you warm and dry in a sudden shower and will even make it possible to stay out in your garden long after the sun has gone down.

Whether you have a simple dining table and chairs or a full sofa suite in your garden room, we’re sure you’ll love entertaining guests and hosting dinner parties in your new indoor/outdoor space.

So, why are you putting off your garden renovation? There are so many ways that you can benefit from re-designing and modernising your garden space.
