Landscaping Services | The Benefits


A New Driveway


New driveways hold status as one of the most popular landscaping services for a reason. First, a driveway installed by expert professionals can increase your home’s value by 5% to 10%. Whether you plan to move in the near future or a few years down the line, a new driveway represents a great investment.


If you’re settled at your current house, driveways make a great personalised touch. Be it block paving or pattern-imprinted concrete, driveways are more customisable than ever before.


In addition, overhauling old, crumbling driveways at Melton Mowbray and Oakham properties represents a more cost-effective approach than constant small-scale repairs.


A New Patio


Much like new driveways, patios remain incredibly popular among all landscaping services. In much the same way, they also offer the benefit of increased resale value. The National Association of Estate Agents believes that adding a great patio to your garden can add as much as £10,000 to the value of your home.


This is linked to the view that homeowners like to imagine themselves relaxing in their garden. In fact, patios are often seen as an extra room to enjoy. So, whether you plan to move or not, investing in a new patio can transform your lifestyle.


Whether it’s entertaining friends, eating outside with family or simply reading alone outside for relaxation, a new patio opens up a new world of possibility.


Garden Walls


Like most landscaping services, garden walls come in various forms. Be it boundary markers in Melton Mowbray, decorative structures in Oakham or retaining walls in the surrounding areas, Milton Construction does them all. When it comes to boundary markers, garden walls provide a much more solid, secure alternative to fencing. You won’t have to worry about them blowing over when the winds pick up, and they provide a greater deterrent to would-be trespassers.


Decorative garden walls and retaining structures often make up one part of a landscaped garden. Well-planned, and maintained, gardens have the potential to add as much as 20% to the resale value of a home.


Needless to say, investing in garden walls, and gardens as a whole, makes just as much sense as doing so in any other room of the house.


General Groundworks


All the above landscaping services require solid groundworks to ensure optimal performance and longevity. New driveways, patios and garden walls in Melton Mowbray, Oakham and the surrounding areas are only as strong as the groundworks supporting them. Without great groundworks, you can’t maximise the outlined benefits.


At Milton Construction, we never cut corners with groundworks. Whether you invest in landscaping services to enjoy and use for many years to come, or with one eye on a future sale, you can be sure that our surfaces and structures will last for many years to come.
