It seems Brits are spending thousands of pounds for gardening and for outdoor living. Well for a good reason too, as it increases the property price by a handsome amount. During the year 2010, in total £5.2 billion was spent on outdoor projects. And this amount was double the amount spent in the year 2009.
62% of the British garden contains garden furniture, 15% decking and 1% contains the Jacuzzi. According to Brits, their ideal garden would have water feature, fruit trees, vegetable patch, swimming pool and of course garden furniture. Also, 1 out of 5 personal loans is taken for home renovations. And the average loan amount taken is £14,037.
