The Australian love affair with entertaining and outdoor living is showing no signs of waning, with 63 per cent of Aussie homeowners planning to either make improvements or undertake new projects in their outdoor spaces.
This is according to the annual Adbri Masonry Great Australian Backyard Survey, which has reported a 41 per cent increase in homeowners wanting to do up their outdoor space compared to 2016.
“Aussies love spending time outdoors, whether it is relaxing, gardening or entertaining friends and family,” explains Jason Hodges, landscaping expert and Adbri Masonry brand ambassador.
“Almost a quarter of us spend more than seven hours a week in our backyards and gardens and it is no surprise the lifestyle benefits that come with that.
“This increase we are seeing in backyard makeovers is a result of increased consumer confidence and recognition that outdoor renovation projects can add value to the home financially.”
