The kitchen is the heart of any home. As cooking shows a rise in popularity and as tenants inevitably rent for longer as the cost of houses rise, tenants are becoming more and more focussed on the quality of the property they are renting.
When it comes to gardening, it would be safe to say that my skills lie elsewhere. I think I’ve mown a lawn once or twice, but beyond that my abilities in the garden leave a lot to be desired. I would be confident to say that most people would lie in the same boat as me. Stunning landscaped gardens though is a sure fire way to enhance the presentation of your property, raising its value. But with such a garden comes great responsibility, either for the tenant or for the landlord.
Do you spend time, effort and money on maintaining the garden yourself so that it will continue to attract new tenants when the time comes or do you take the risk of finding a tenant with a similar gardening pedigree to myself and see your beautifully landscaped grounds become barren within their tenancy? 🌵
