How to Add Value to a Property by Having an Immaculate Front Garden

Front gardens are often overlooked because people are unlikely to view them at as a sitting area – unlike back gardens.

But the reality is that front gardens are seen, walked through and used every day of the year.

A well-designed garden space will not only make your day-to-day living easier but it will add value to a property because it gives a first impression of the property and is a huge selling point to any potential buyer.

The main focus of any front garden design will be the practical requirements for the space.

This might include how many cars you need, where the property is positioned, or an area for the rubbish bins. But equally as important is to consider how the garden will look and feel. Factors include how it will look when viewed from the road, or what materials will best work with the style and age of the house.

It is extremely important to examine what plants will provide structure throughout the year and some colour or interest in each season.

A garden full of weeds is unappealing to any potential buyer – and an effective way to deal with this is to use landscaping fabric.

Driveway and patio weed control fabric is specially designed for use under patios and driveways. Its unique bonded fibre design provides unbeatable drainage performance whilst it’s high strength provides excellent ground stabilisation with high puncture and tear resistance.

Careful planning is crucial if you are to create a functional and attractive front garden.

Both heavy duty and light garden weed membranes will help turn your front garden into a desirable property. Heavy duty weed control fabric can be used under gravel, slate, decking, and garden paths or trails. By contrast, a lightweed suppressing garden membrane can be used under organic mulch, decorative gravel, bark or for simply lining planters in the garden.

Weed control fabric only lets water and nutrients through to your plants, whilst suppressing the growth of nasty unwanted weeds.

Using weed control membranes also helps to keep the ground moist and protects from extreme temperatures, whilst reducing the need for watering of plants.
