5 low-cost renovations that add massive value

A successful, attractive garden contains colour and texture. Colour can be achieved simply by combining complimentary foliage colour, while texture can be achieved through foliage contrast.
There are two ways to achieve an established garden effect:
  1. By installing mature-sized plants, which involves high costs, or
  2. By catering for any voids in the garden via the use of ‘filler plants’. With the clever choice of some suitable colour and texture-effective, hardy plants, a planned and established garden can be achieved.
5. Council approval
One option that is quite out of the ordinary, but would add value from a potential renovator’s point of view, would be to gain council approval for building renovations – such as carport renovations or house extensions – before selling the property.
A potential investor or renovator may jump at the chance to snap your property up, because the leg work with council has already been done and approval received. This may potentially save a lot of time for any investor or renovator following the sale of the property.
