Landscaping adds value to a property

Something that many people may not know is that one of the greatest assets on a property is their own backyard. In South Africa we are very driven by the outdoors. We are fortunate enough to experience a warm climate that allows us to spend long periods of time outside. For any home owner this means spending time in the garden or around a braai area.

The front garden and back garden hold many differences and for this reason should be treated differently.

  • Welcome area vs. entertainment / relaxation area
  • Small vs. larger
  • Visible vs. hidden

Home owners considering landscaping their gardens should consider various different aspects before they begin. Landscaping is an investment and if it is crafted properly and maintained, it will certainly benefit not only day to day living but will also add to the value of a property.

MCG Landscaping works closely with all clients to create something unique and refreshing in each garden. Landscaping is a particular art form that requires much planning and thought.

Together with the client, MCG Landscaping finds the best way to fulfill desires and bring a space to life so that home owners are able to make the most out of their back and front gardens. Above this, landscaping provides appreciation for the outdoors, even though the property may be situated amidst city life.

Before the landscaping process begins, the client should consider various different aspects.

  • How long do you plan on living in the house?
  • How much time do you have to maintain a garden?
  • How often do you use the space in the garden?
  • Is the front garden on display? Can it be seen from the street or by the neighbors?

Once these questions have been answered, it is easier to design and plan the landscaping. MCG Landscaping has a talented and experienced team of landscapers and designers who are able to combine personal needs and convenience with the potential beauty that lies within a space. The above questions are a good place to start and offer some great guidelines.

Landscaping detail is very important and should be carefully thought through. It is important to consider the South African climate and other natural elements before planning commences.

  • How much sun/ shade does the garden receive?
  • Do you want a different effect each season?
  • Is fragrance important?
  • Is colour important?
  • Water features, statues etc
  • Do you have much time to maintain and tend to the garden?

Landscaping is a great way to recreate a space and invite new dimensions onto a property. MCG Landscaping allows home owners to entertain, admire and enjoy the bird species, colour and life that landscaping brings with it.

A backyard doesn’t need to be just a garden. Landscaping is a great tool that creates magic. It allows home owners to be as wild or as manicured as they wish whilst adding great value to the property.
