If you're a homeowner, then you know that the value of your property must be taken care of. If it isn't, you might have to sell at a loss - and who wants that? Luckily for you, there are many ways to increase the value of your property. In this blog post we'll talk about some creative ideas on how you can make your home more valuable!

Create Your Own Oasis With A Landscaped Garden Area

Landscaping is nothing new but it can be an inexpensive and great way to increase the value of your property by creating your own private oasis. If you’re short on time or don’t have a green thumb, adding a landscaped garden area is a great way to add some life to your backyard space. Many companies offer Landscape design services that can help turn any backyard into a place you'd rather be!
Alternatively, if you want your home to look good, but don't want to pay a lot of money for landscaping services, you could always plant your own garden and add little by little over time. It might seem like a lot of work, but it will be worth all the time and effort when it is done right!  Not only will it increase the value of your home, but you'll also be able to enjoy it for yourself.

Install A Spa Pool

Another way to increase the value of your property is by adding a spa pool! Not only are they relaxing and therapeutic, but they can also add some extra square footage to your home. When choosing a spa pool, understand spa and hot tub sizes in your garden and how much space you have available. Make sure to incorporate the location and positioning of the spa pool into your landscaping plans.
You can also add some character and personality to your spa pool is by adding a water feature. This could be anything from a simple waterfall to an elaborate fountain. If you don't have the space for a water feature, you could always add some plants or shrubs around the spa pool. This will make it more of a private space that you and your family can enjoy together. Furthermore, adding a spa pool will increase the value of your property because it is one less thing that the new home owner would need to hassle with. With a ready installed spa built beautifully into it's surroundings, the new owner can focus on more important things.

Create Privacy Barriers & Pathways With Hedges

Well-developed gardens often offer an interesting landscape with flowers, pathways, and architectural elements such as statues and fountains. Something that always looks nice in any garden is a row of evergreen or deciduous shrubs that create a barrier along the property line can be used to create privacy and separation between properties. Adding hedges to your garden, you can create a natural border along the property line or in between areas within your yard. You can also use them as an attractive decoration for fences and walls. This is a great way to improve the overall look and feel of your property.

Landscaping With Decorative Rocks & Stones

Another way of bringing more character into your landscape is by using decorative rocks and stones. This is a great way to add color, texture and sophistication. You can use them in your garden or on any surfaces such as paths, patios, flower beds and more. Using decorative rocks isn't difficult but it takes patience. Decide what type of rock will look best with the rest of your landscape design before you buy anything. It is also  a good idea to know the right way of how to place them.
Rocks can be used in several ways including using a few large rocks as focal points, lining your borders, creating paths with stepping stones or simply placing decorative pebbles around plants and trees for an added bit of color. You should also use different sizes and shapes but also keep in mind the colors and textures of your rocks. Using a variety will give you more options when decorating with them.
The next step is how to place the decorative rock around your plants, trees or flowers. Start by using three larger rocks as focal points at different spots throughout your garden area. Take note of where the sunlight falls so you can place the focal points in these areas.

Build An Outdoor Living Space Or BBQ Area

An outdoor living space is the best way to enjoy the outdoors, while staying in your yard! It's not only comfortable but it looks pretty too. A favorite design option of ours are pergolas that can be custom built for any size backyard. They're perfect because they provide shade and shelter from rain without taking up too much space on your property.
While you're at it, don't forget to include a BBQ and cooking bench for outdoor family gatherings. Having a gathering space for friends and family to enjoy is crucial! If you live in a colder climate, try an outdoor fireplace or fire pit surrounded by chairs and benches.

Blend The With Living Space & Outdoor Area

A trendy thing that Australians are starting to embrace lately is blending your home living space with the backyard. For this you can add bi-fold doors that open out onto the patio or decking, or you can even go as far to add a pergola with seating. This way during the warmer months of the year you can enjoy your home without being stuck indoors!


This is especially good for families because it's an easy way to create separate spaces inside and outside while still linking them together. It also creates more space for those larger gatherings where people can freely walk in and out of the house and the living area and back yard become one.
