With many of us now staying at home, and the weather in Manchester being so nice, now is an ideal time to make the most of your garden.
For many house hunters, a garden takes a top spot on the list of must-haves when searching for their perfect property.
In fact, ‘Garden’ was the second most popular searched term for prospective purchasers across the UK in 2019 according to research by Zoopla.
Other amenities such as ‘garage’ and ‘parking’ also made it into the top three most popular search terms on the site.
It is estimated around 90% of UK households have access to a garden and spring is the time to start investing in our outdoor space.
According to data, Brits spend an average of 114 hours per year on gardening tasks.
Whether it’s vegetables, flowers or easy-to-maintain pot-plants, our open and greenspace is often associated with health and wellbeing.
Not only is being outside in the fresh air beneficial for your mental wellbeing but having a well-maintained garden may well add a premium of between 5% and 20% on the sale price of your home.
Real grass, sheds and outdoor seating areas are all popular features among home buyers too.
Whether you have got a large outdoor space or a little well-tended garden, both can add value to your home.
