Raised bed

Whole life investment

Unlike kitchens and bathrooms, styles in the Garden last longer.

Like any project, there is an obvious up-front cost but when you consider the whole of life cost, the investment in hard-wearing materials stacks up.

Long after the price is forgotten, the quality remains so consider good quality natural stone pavers, by design they are thicker, stronger and built to last outside.

Informal walls that double as garden seats offer extra seating and long-term good looks and if you’re looking to treat yourself, choose a feature outdoor piece of good quality furniture. 

Current trends include all kinds of outdoor rooms, pool houses, garden studios, raised beds, kitchen gardens, terrace renovations, fireplaces and water features.

Garden art, garden illumination and bespoke structures are on the forefront of contemporary trends as well.

Of course, there also is still a very strong trend in all matters regarding sustainability, active gardening, introducing wildlife to your garden, kitchen gardens and organic gardening.

But all these garden ideas won’t date and provide a fantastic return on investment, as a well-maintained and attractively designed garden can increase the value of your property and provide value long-term.
