Two thirds of prospective purchasers say the garden is a deciding factor when choosing whether a new home is right for them or not according to a recent survey by Rated People. Agents estimate that having the right kind of garden can add between 10 and 20 per cent to the value of a house, while the outdoor space around the property and its wider environment is also highly important to buyers.

At Silk Meadows, in Braintree, Essex, families can find spacious two, three, and four bedroom homes with inviting private gardens as well as vast green space, making them an ideal location for gardening and outdoor enthusiasts. Secure enclosed gardens are featured to the rear of the homes, with landscaped gardens at the front.
