During lockdown, many people have rediscovered the joys of their gardens, while those who didn’t have a green patch have wished they had. In fact, listening to the people who’ve been visiting our sales centres recently, it’s clear that many of us have realised that we really need a garden of our own. If you’re one of them, then why not escape to a new Dundas home? Almost all of them come with a generous garden to enjoy.

To wet your appetite, we’ve done a run-down of five great ways to make the most of your new outdoor space:

Get entertaining

Everyone loves having a party outdoors. To entertain in style, you can put in some decking or a patio and invest in some stylish outdoor furniture. You might even put in some mood lighting so that you can make the most of the summer nights.

Get playing

Kids love a garden, so why not give them a few toys to help them get rid of all that pent-up energy? Favourites include trampolines, football goals and swings and slides. However, we’re sure your youngsters will know exactly what they want.

Get planting

One of the joys of having some green space is that you can get planting. Perhaps you’re a traditionalist and will go for roses, a herbaceous border and a raised bed for vegetables? But why not think of Scotland’s wildlife and put in some wildflowers and a bird-feeder while you’re at it?

Get a bit of space

If lockdown’s taught us anything, it’s that we all need some space we can call our own. So why not think about a home office or shed - somewhere you can escape to when things inside get a bit too much?

Get cooking

What would summer be without a barbecue? With a garden you can really go to town and get yourself that all-singing-and-dancing grilling machine you’ve promised yourself. Or you could even go a step further and build a barbecue area as part of a patio project.

Dundas offers a range of homes that have good-sized gardens both front and back, suitable for all types of families. To find the house that's right for you get in touch with our sales team, or book a visit to one of our sales centres.
