DIAL-UP YOUR KERB CHIC
You only get one chance at making a first impression – especially if it comes to getting the local estate agency to add a few thou’ to the price ticket on your house sale. But, with modern fencing, dialling-up your kerb chic can be a simple yet rewarding job and one that’s bound to impress that new potential buyer and the Jones’s at number 74 into the bargain.
People have mixed views on gardens. There are those to whom they are a passion, a hobby, and a delight. You can recognise the garden enthusiast by extravagant planting, landscaping, trellising, raised beds, the obligatory Green-Man-spouting-water feature and other TV ‘garden-porn-show’ paraphernalia.
Then again there are those that see them as something of a chore. A space that requires reluctantly given TLC. Often a nuisance that takes up time they could better spend elsewhere. These are the minimalist gardeners, lots of paving, beds covered in grey slate chips with a statement delicately off-centre crab-apple tree, and a black basalt statue of the Venus de Milo. Not to forget the obligatory water feature that bubbles delicately from the mouth of a cubist frog and runs down a narrow rill before vanishing into the smallest of infinity pools.
