The Great British Garden

The history of the word garden

This week we wanted to reflect on what can make or break a property for prospective tenants when viewing or searching for a new rental. Time after time we are given requests that the property must have a good garden for the kids, or for couples to have their friends round for a meal in the summer and enjoy a good British BBQ, yes I am talking about the ones where we all go and sit outside in our garden, beers and drinks in hand, to then have to run inside to hide from the inevitable downpour.

So with that being said, the great British Garden, a green sanctuary that reflects the homeowners’ personality and style. Our love affair with our gardens is more than an aesthetic preference; it’s a testament to the value we place on our outdoor space. Whether it is for the kids to run around, families to enjoy a relaxing bathe in the sun, or for the dog to lie on the patio and get a well earnt rest, we all enjoy our time in the garden (at least when it isn’t raining).

As a letting’s agent in Bath, we see firsthand how a well-presented garden can have a significant impact on the appeal of a home to prospective tenants. A beautifully landscaped garden not only captivates potential tenants, but also can be what provides a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the 9-5 or the often-stressful times that family life gives us.

These green havens can be the deciding factor when tenants are looking to rent. So, as a landlord, investing time and care into your homes garden can not only be a labour of love, but a savvy decision that will pay dividends when letting out your home.
