With more British people choosing to stay put, landscape gardening firms are finding there’s a boom at the end of the bust.
Essex, UK, August 2nd, 2010 – Successful landscape gardening firm Four Winds is reporting a hike in design orders, which it thinks may be the result of a sea change in British housing habits.
Before the recession, UK residents had been encouraged to view their home as an asset – a transient property designed, more than anything, for resale. Since the housing market collapsed, though, many Brits have found themselves in a position whereby selling is not an option. There’s a minimal market for house sales, and that market is poor at best – which means the UK housing mindset has undergone a radical rethink.
British home owners are treating their houses as homes again; landscape gardening firms like Four Winds are enjoying an unexpected renaissance: with orders flooding in from house keepers who have realised that their current residence is likely to become the family home.
It’s one of a series of corollary benefits that several “home making” industries are enjoying in the wake of the housing crash. “Simply put,” said a spokeswoman for Four Winds, “people want to make their current residences places where they live, rather than just inhabit. And that means getting the right garden for their lifestyle.”
It’s an appealing thought: after nearly two generations of transient living, the British are settling down again. And taking advantage of services like Four Winds’ free consultation, which allows them to get an idea of the kinds of things they could have done to make their garden a real haven for all the family.
With orders going through the roof, it seems that a lot of those free consultations are offering exactly the right kind of advice. Britain is growing again – and landscape gardening firms like Four Winds (check out their consultation options at (www.4-winds.co.uk) are among the first to reap the benefits.
