Three ASPC homes with low maintenance gardens
Gardens are a wonderful feature for any property. They can be a place to retreat, relax, or for entertaining. However, if gardening isn’t your strong point, then house hunting for a more manageable option may be one of your top priorities.
We take a look a closer look at three properties with low maintenance gardens, currently available on the market.
The contrast between the Mediterranean-feel, warm-toned entertainment area and the green rural surroundings makes this low-maintenance garden an interesting and enjoyable place to relax in. As the current owners have done, adding a hot tub and varied seating options provides a touch of pampering against the backdrop of beautiful countryside views.
This home is a four-bedroomed converted steading located on the outskirts of Insch which boasts high ceilings, a large family kitchen, family room and single garage.
This three-bedroomed villa is located in Dyce, just 6 miles from Aberdeen city centre, and has been tastefully decorated throughout. In walk-in condition, this home would be a great purchase for first time buyers or a young family.
We love the creative use of space of this compact low-fuss garden. The garden has been designed to include a sheltered seating area which is perfect for alfresco dining, as well as space for both a chimenea and barbecue. This garden also features two very handy sheds and is laid with low-maintenance slate chipping, adding practicality to this great entertaining nook.
The owners have designed the aesthetic to include bright outdoor wall hangings and plant pots, using accessories to inject colour into the neutral setting.
This very well presented two-bedroomed bungalow, situated in the popular Bridge of Don area, features a generous-sized, very low maintenance private garden. The garden has a covering of easy-care granite chips. The coastal grey and blue tones of the features give it an uplifting feel.
Splitting out the larger space into different functional areas using furniture and low-maintenance potted plants, such as succulents and topiary, will add functionality and personality. Rattan-style, wicker or teak outdoor sofas and a barbecue area could really bring this beachy themed garden to life. There’s even plenty of space for a summer house or shed too.
The house itself is neutrally decorated to a high standard and features a fireplace focal point in the lounge, has a partially converted attic and fully-fitted modern kitchen. The front garden is covered with lock block paving, forming a front multiple-car parking area.
Designing a layout that suits your tastes and putting a little work into your low-maintenance garden upfront, will give you months of enjoyment thereafter.
