To find backyard features that will be sure to add value to your home, be sure to read on.
Add a living space
Today, more and more living spaces are popping up in backyards. This is mainly because of the fact that grown-up children cannot afford to take out a mortgage elsewhere, so they gain their independence by moving to the bottom of their parents’ garden.
By creating a living space in your backyard, you will make your home more appealing to families who have young-adult children. Fear not because, thanks to customizable Quonset hut kits, creating a habitable area on your grounds need not be as costly or as arduous a task as it first appears. These kits are not difficult to erect, which means that they do not cost a lot in labor. What’s more, they can be tailored to fit your residential needs, which means that they don’t have to cost more than is absolutely necessary.
Create an area for entertainment
As soon as the sun comes out to play, people like to flock outside and enjoy barbecue parties with their friends. To ensure that your home appeals to buyers who have a tendency to host a party or two during the summertime, you should create an area in your backyard that is dedicated solely to entertainment. You can achieve by laying down a deck or patio in the area of your garden that gets the most sun during the summer.
If you want to go one step further in this instance, then you should actually fit an outdoor kitchen in this designated entertainment area. Luxury buyers won’t be able to resist this type of amenity!
Add privacy to the space
Privacy is something most potential buyers will look for when you show them around your backyard. To ensure that they aren’t disappointed by what they uncover in this instance, you should add some privacy to your garden space by landscaping with it in mind.
Here are six simple landscaping tips that you should consider when you decide to make your backyard a bit more private:
- Plant bamboo (or buy it when it is already 10 feet tall if you want instant privacy)
- Build your privacy up in layers by embracing tiered planting
- Invest in fence trellis, lattice screens or even just simple fencing
- Train your plants to grow vertically
- Build raised garden beds
- Go all out and build a pergola
