We often receive inquiries from Horley homeowners who are sounding out a landscaping company for a quote, as they’re unsure whether or not to commit to, say, bringing in patio laying or driveway contractors. But a quote is nothing without context. It’s important to know all the pros associated with home improvement, e.g. replacing battered garden fencing. This way, you can get a feel for what you’re paying for.
On this page, we’ve run through just a few benefits of various home improvements that Andrew Jee Landscaping offers, including landscape gardening. We hope reading them will help you decide whether or not it’s the right time for you to invest in home improvements.
One of the most valuable home improvements you can make is replacing a tired, worn or antiquated driveway. Shoddy and dated driveways look awful, tarnishing your home's kerb appeal, and they can also suffer from serious drainage issues. Our driveway contractors can use block paving, stone, brick or tarmac to create a stylish, functional new driveway that will prove a pleasure to use and improve the value of your home.
One aspect of landscaping popular year in and year out is patio laying. It’s no wonder these paved open spaces are so in demand; they’re an ideal outside space that can be used for all sorts of reasons. Eating a meal outside during the hotter months, entertaining friends during a gathering or party, or simply being a place to sit down after a long day and unwind with a book. The main reason to invest in a new patio would be if you don’t currently have a paved area in your garden and feel you’re not getting the most out of it. The Andrew Jee Landscaping team will be able to help design a patio that meets your needs and gets you back out enjoying your garden.
Poor quality, broken or rotting garden fencing isn’t just a problem aesthetically; it can significantly impact home security. Establishing a structurally sound outside border to your garden is important to ensure that intruding wildlife and would-be thieves don’t have easy access to your property. Likewise, it grants privacy to your garden and is a great way to put the finishing touches to a wider garden design scheme. Remember, if you’ve spent much time turning your garden into a beautiful sight via landscape gardening, having poor quality (or even boring) garden fencing would be a shame. Decorative panels and trellises can be incorporated to put the cherry on the cake.
Speaking of landscape gardening, we'd certainly recommend it if you haven’t given much thought to how your garden looks. Planting the right flowers, hedges and trees, building walls and steps, and raised areas, can liven up a property. Whether you’re a keen gardener and want something that will be a pleasure to tend to year-round or something minimal with more hard landscaping features than anything else, our team at Andrew Jee Landscaping will help you realise your dream. While it’s hard to say exactly how much a well-kept and designed garden adds to a Horley property’s value, it certainly doesn’t harm it, and making changes isn’t as expensive as calling in driveway contractors or a patio laying team anyway!
