Whether your home exterior is comprised of a well laid out balcony / patio area or a sprawling garden there are many exciting options available to you to make the most of your outdoor living space.
Be aware when renting or buying a property in Dubai, the cost of creating and maintaining this area is directly associated with the amount of space you have. Dubai villas tend to present with large sprawling gardens and landscaping them invariably does add value to a property as well as providing great pleasure to it's owners.
Most expatriates hire a gardener to maintain the gardens in superb condition. They almost always come with an abundance of knowledge of plants, pests, fertilizing etc !, but hire one on recommendation or at least view one or two of the gardens in his care.
With or without a swimming pool is an initial choice you have to make when moving to Dubai, remembering pools are an enormous source of relaxation and pleasure especially for kids, but also come with a maintenance bill ! ! Also be aware of the grave associated dangers especially with young kids around - it is worth considering fencing off the pool before you move in for greater peace of mind and it is highly recommended to enroll them in a swim programme at the earliest opportunity.
It is advisable to engage the services of a pest control company in Dubai. It is after all a desert land and home to lots of ‘nasties’, both inside and outside, therefore quarterly treatment of your property with a broad spectrum insecticide is recommended.
