If you are adding a transportable unit to your section, you might be concerned that the unit will look out of place or be unsightly when you look out of your window. But with some careful landscaping for a transportable unit, it can look like it has always been there.
Four ideas for landscaping for a transportable unit
- Add extra decking or a patio
Hard landscaping like this will anchor your transportable unit into its setting. And it has the added bonus of giving you usable outdoor space. If you are siting your unit on a sloping section, then a raised deck can also help with creating a level area.
- Add fencing or screening
This is particularly important if you are using your transportable unit for a third party to live in or as a garden home office and you don’t want clients to see your actual home. Fencing or screening add privacy for both you and the people in the unit.
- Add plants
Planting is another good way of anchoring your unit into its surroundings. Choosing shrubs or hedges can also help your plants double as screening for a softer look than fencing. If you can’t add permanent planting think about hanging baskets or pots to add colour. You could either use plants and flowers that match the rest of your garden or choose something contrasting to
- Consider repainting the unit
While all our units come professionally painted inside and out, there’s nothing to stop you repainting the outside. Again you could choose a colour that matches your existing property or opt for something contrasting.
Whatever sort of landscaping you choose for your transportable unit, you will want to make sure it is easy-care – especially if you aren’t using the cabin full time yourself. Look for low-maintenance plants that will look good all year round and use treated wood or stained timber for fencing and decking so that it requires less upkeep.
