4 garden features that can add value to your home

A garden offers you many great opportunities to increase the value of your home. It provides an attractive outdoor space and can also be a source of relaxation and enjoyment for you and your family. Here at Welch Fencing, we’ve been helping people increase the aesthetic appeal of their homes with our timber fencing for over half a century! So, if you’re looking for some effective ways to add value to your home via your garden, here are some features you might want to consider.

garden lights

Outdoor lighting

Outdoor lighting can create a beautiful ambiance in the evenings within your garden, while also increasing the security of your property. There are plenty of lighting options available for you to choose from, and each can serve a different purpose within your space! For example, motion detecting lights turn on automatically when they (you guessed it!) sense motion around them. This makes them a great deterrent against burglars who generally prefer to work in the dark. On the other hand, solar powered fairy lights can be a brilliant way of adding a cosy, whimsical ambience to your outdoor seating area!

Water features

A water feature can add a soothing element to your garden and can also be a great focal point. You can choose from a variety of options, including fountains, ponds, and waterfalls, with each one offering its own unique benefits to your space. A pond for instance, is a perfect choice if you’re someone who enjoys nature and the site of small animals like hedgehogs, squirrels and birds in your garden, as they’ll all be attracted to it as a source of water. What’s more, you could populate your pond with exotic plants and fish to really bring it to life! If you’re looking for a water feature that requires a bit less investment, then a bird bath is a great way of attracting wildlife to your garden for a significantly lower price.

Garden paths

Creating a garden path can add structure and organisation to your outdoor space. Typical materials used in the construction of a garden path include gravel, brick, and stone, but each come with their own benefits and drawbacks. Stone paving for instance, looks incredible, but is much more expensive when compared to gravel. Regardless of which material you choose, a garden path can be a great way of adding value to your home.

Pressure treated garden fencing

Our pressure treated fencing panels offer exceptional durability and a long lifespan, with minimal to no maintenance required for several years after their installation. They’re also highly weather resistant, making them a brilliant choice for anyone based in coastal areas, or anywhere else that frequently sees harsher winds or rain (like the North West!). These key benefits are all down to the pressure treatment process, which utilises an airtight chamber and hydraulic pressure to force preservatives deep into the wood, permeating it thoroughly. It’s more intensive and even more effective than dip treatment, and does an excellent job of protecting the panels from finicky issues like burrowing insects or creeping mould.
