Garden or terrace? Discover the best option for your home

If you have just purchased a house and are considering doing a series of improvements to it, or you are in the process of finding a suitable home, you may be wondering whether your ideal home should come with a garden or terrace. To help you choose the best option, pay close attention to this article. Your decision will depend on many factors such as the condition of the house and its features.

Advantages and disadvantages of buying a house with garden

There is no doubt that a garden gives a stately appearance to any house, which is incomparable to any other feature. However, it is necessary to have enough space and land on the front and back of the house. If the property does come with enough land, you can have the option of keeping livestock too.

A garden will provide a green space that lets you decorate it with any plants and trees you want. In addition, it will confer a space where your children can play outside and you can have barbecues with family or friends. But keep in mind that you must invest a good amount of time and money in maintaining your garden, or hire a gardener to do the work for you.

Why opt for a terrace?

If you have the space, time and resources, a garden is the perfect choice for your home. If not, then a terrace would be a better option as it requires less maintenance and still provides you with the space you need in order to enjoy the outdoors. In addition, a terrace looks spectacular on any type of property.

Today it is possible to install any type of terrace that withstands the elements. You can decorate it with trees and plants and even end up with a swimming pool or artificial turf to give it a more natural appearance. What's more, the shaded areas of the terrace can be perfect for placing furniture and awnings. What is certain about a terrace is that you won't have to worry about mowing the lawn or protecting your plants from pests.

Choose according to your needs and preferences

To conclude, while gardens are the best feature of a house, a terrace provides more privacy and requires less maintenance. But the ultimate choice is down to you. Just take into account the advantages and disadvantages of each one before deciding what's right for you.
