Elevate your view
If you have a sloped backyard you might also be lucky enough to have a picturesque view of your surroundings.
These could include rolling hills, alpine forests, a striking coastal view or even a colourful urban sprawl.
Whatever your surroundings are, stunning views are naturally going to lure you and your guests outdoors.
However, if your block drops down, you may never have the space to appreciate the great outdoors.
Imagine venturing outside, cup of tea in hand, to make the most of your scenic surroundings from a high vantage point. What a relaxing thought!
Add some much needed privacy
Entertaining outdoors does come with some annoying aspects, such as a lack of privacy. This can be even more relevant if your property is high on a hill.
After all, sloping blocks aren’t limited to the countryside. Yours could lead only to a fence and, behind it, your neighbour’s property.
Increase the value of your property
A sloping block of land can be tricky to sell if the landscaping doesn’t suit.
Potential buyers and experienced investors will consider the practicalities of a sloping lawn and the possible hassles of taking care of an unattended gradient.
By not taking the time to present a solution such as timber decking prior to an open inspection, keen-eyed buyers will be hard pressed to envision how the space can potentially evolve.
Investing in your home’s physical structures and surrounding environment will help buyers envision the functionality of the property. Buyers are far more likely to purchase a home which has been properly managed and thoroughly renovated.
Because of this, transforming your property places you front and centre in the mind of prospective buyers.
It makes sense: people love the idea of time spent outside with friends and family appreciating fantastic views.
