Block Paving in Haywards Heath
Can Garden Patios, Driveways and Other Hard Landscaping Increase Home Value?

Are you planning to overhaul your garden’s current appearance? Whether you’re focusing on popular features like garden patios and new driveways, or you’re looking to transform the entire space, Sussex Landscaping & Groundworks is here to help. Our landscaping company has a proven track record in creating and maintaining stunning outside spaces in Haywards Heath. From block paving paths to garden decking, our team works with a wide range of materials to deliver results tailored to your vision.

There are numerous reasons why you may want to breathe new life into your garden. For many homeowners, a personalised, landscaped garden is a key ingredient in a ‘forever home’. In other cases, however, you may simply want to upgrade a neglected space with an eye on a future move.

But does garden landscaping increase your home’s value? According to research by Post Office Money, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. The figures from their study found that garden landscaping could increase a property’s worth by as much as 77%.

Of course, variables like location, property type and the quality of workmanship produced will alter this figure on a case-by-case basis. However, it underlines just how much impact calling in a highly skilled landscaping company like Sussex Landscaping & Groundworks can be.


A Closer Look at Popular Features

If you want your project in Haywards Heath to revolve around the features with the most potential for an increase in home resale value, look no further than new driveways, garden patios and sheds.

While the garden shed may not have the glamour of a patio, driveway or block paving installation, it holds a near-universal appeal. In fact, the humble shed recently topped a list of ten best garden improvements in a study by Sell House Fast.

The results were based on a survey that asked prospective home buyers which garden features they looked out for. These structures provide ample space for storing gardening tools and equipment, keeping them in one safe, secure place. This reduces the likelihood of losing something while minimising clutter elsewhere.

Garden patios came second on that same list. It’s impossible to put a definitive figure on how much of an increase in value you can expect as there are too many potential caveats. These include the kind of material you use (from porcelain to block paving), as well as the quality of your landscaping company. The best workmanship extends below the surface to the groundworks.

According to figures from Smart Money, however, a landscaped patio can add as much as 12.4% to your home’s value.

In the front garden, a new driveway immediately improves your Haywards Heath home’s kerb appeal. The prospect of a stunning driveway, not to mention guaranteed off-street parking, can increase your property’s value by between 5% and 10%.

Again, this figure will vary depending on your own specific case. For example, if your home is in an area where parking is an ongoing battle, or you need a parking permit, a driveway will hold more appeal.
