Put In A New Garden
Turning your backyard into a thriving, vibrant spectacular new garden, can help to raise the value of your property and give you a beautiful space to enjoy. However, to truly transform your space takes time and it’s important that you put a plan in place before you start. Prior to planting anything, you will need to prepare the space, clear any debris and make sure that the soil is primed and ready for planting. Once you have the ground prepared, you can start digging beds, creating beautiful spaces for you to relax in, set out space for a vegetable garden and make plans for anything else you want to include in your new garden. Seek out inspiration and let your creativity flourish.
Install A Swimming Pool
With the hot Australian summers, installing a pool is something that many homeowners dream about. While you could install an above ground pool, for a more permanent streamlined solution that will look great in your outdoor space, a below ground pool is a much better option. While there is more work involved in excavating the space and putting the plumbing in place, the result will be a pool that fits seamlessly with its surroundings. A pool can be a real feature of a property and will make your property much more attractive potential buyers should you decide to sell in the future. And in the meantime, you and your family and friends can enjoy days lounging by your new pool.
Consider An Extension
One of the most common major home improvements is adding extra space to your existing structure. This is a great way to add more room as the needs of your family grows and it can add a lot of extra value to your property as a bigger house with more space is always worth more on the property market. Depending on your property you may have some work to do on the outside first with laying foundations and preparing the area for construction. You need to make sure that any extension you are building is built on level ground and is supported properly before you start the construction. Once your foundations are in place, it won’t be long til the contractor has the walls in place and before you know it, you will be painting and decorating your new room.
Build A Deck
There’s nothing like coming home after a busy day and sitting out on your deck with your family. In the summer months, you can break out the barbeque and have great fun with your friends and family. A deck is definitely an attractive feature in any Australian home. If you’re considering installing a deck, you should take the time to do it properly and build a deck that will stand the test of time and stand up to being used regularly. To avoid your deck collapsing unexpectedly someday, be sure to take the time to plan the construction properly and put proper foundations in place before you begin.
Heavy Hitting Home Improvements
