Does A Garden Building Make Your House Worth More?


From having an al fresco kitchen to a stylish outdoor work space, there are many ways your back garden can increase the value of your home. 

Adding value to your garden doesn’t have to mean weeks of work, or spending thousands of pounds on improvements. It can be just as simple as having a well-kept garden with nicely cut grass, a patio area, quality furniture and a bit of additional lighting. You can see our partner Garden Designers/Landscapers here.

What Do Buyers Look for In the Garden?

Buyers are looking for something clean, open, and inviting, and this is certainly achievable. Although a sophisticated garden design might look stunning, the chances of you recouping back costs could be slim. This is usually due to the prospect of further maintenance, or worries about having the space to accommodate growing families.  

It is predicted that a high quality, well-kept garden building will add a similar amount of value to your home as a conservatory or extension. However, for this to be the case it must be positioned well and in a garden big enough to accommodate it fully. 

How Can You Add Value to Your Home?

Adding value in preparation for a house sale is something best done well in advance - it is definitely not something to be rushed. A garden building is a quick way to make an investment into your house, and of course it's yours to enjoy before a move.  

Another great way to add value is to take care of all of the small issues a garden will face. These include overgrown climbers, weeds, leaks, rusty gates, and worn fencing. These little details might seem insignificant at first. However, in the eyes of a potential buyer they build up to represent a lack of care in the property as a whole.
