How Driveways and Landscaping Improve the Kerb Appeal of Your Property

Posted on: 24th November 2017

Paved block driveway

‘Kerb appeal’ is one of those phrases that people find a little bit annoying – chiefly because of its overuse by estate agents. Nevertheless, it does express a genuine phenomenon. Houses that look more attractive are worth more. Two key ways to increase the kerb appeal of your house are to pay attention to the driveway and the garden.

A Paved Driveway

One of the first things that guests (or prospective buyers) will see when they arrive at your home is the driveway. A smartly paved driveway in an elegant brickweave gives a very different impression to a muddy streak with weeds poking through it. All paved driveways from Knights Paving and Landscaping come with a lifetime guarantee.

A Landscaped Garden

At the very least a garden should be trimmed back and weeded before you put a house up for sale. However, if you really want to increase the kerb appeal of your home then you should landscape it to make it attractive to your prospective buyer. For instance, if you want to sell your house as a family home, then a smart patio and large lawn area surrounded with robust non-toxic shrubbery will certainly appeal to the parents of young children.

Paying a bit of attention to the exterior of your home can increase its value and will significantly increase the chances of a quick sale. Most people want to move into somewhere that won’t require years of effort to bring up to a decent standard.
