How to improve the external areas of your property

April 11, 2016

When it comes to improving our home, many of us concentrate on the interior and it is easy to forget that the outside of a home plays an important role in how the entire property is perceived. This is especially important if you want to put your home on the market, as attracting potential buyers is a lot easier if your garden looks just as good as the inside areas.


There are lots of professional services that you can take advantage of in order to improve the way the exterior of your home looks and you can search online for locally-based people to help you. For example, you can find professional tree loppers in Perth or search for a company that can erect a new fence for you in Essex and the great thing about using the internet to conduct a search is that you can find companies based all over the world in just a few seconds.


Tree Loppers


If you really want to focus on getting your garden in better shape and you have trees that are overgrown and blocking natural light from entering your home, then you will need to find a tree lopper to help you as attempting to fell a tree or even just prune it back can be dangerous as a non-professional.


Here are some of the services that are commonly available through a professional tree lopping company:


Ø  Pruning

Ø  Felling

Ø  Shaping

Ø  Removals

Ø  Stump grinding

Ø  Clearances


You can organise a tree risk assessment to be done if you have some large trees in your garden and you are unsure about whether or not they pose a potential danger and this is always important to do, as the last thing you want is a tree crashing in through your living room window.


Erect a Fence


Once you have cleared your garden area by contacting professional tree loppers in Perth, you can now start adding things to it such as a fence that runs around the border. This is a fairly simple job to get done yet it will have a big impact on how your garden looks and if you already have a fence but it is damaged, then you will need to get it repaired.


Below are a few examples of the types of features you can add to your garden:


Ø  Decorative panels

Ø  A trellis

Ø  Picket fencing

Ø  Gates

Ø  Panel fencing


You will need to decide what style you want your fence to be, as there are lots of different designs to choose from.


You will also need to think about the following:


·         The height

·         The colour you want to paint it

·         Whether or not it has gaps

·         Where it starts and stops


Whether you want to prune your overgrown trees, have a tree removed as it poses a danger or is blocking your light or view too much or you simply want to have a new fence installed around your garden – there are plenty of things that you can do to ensure that your garden looks just as nice as the interior of your home.
