Ocean Finance collected responses from more than 2,000 UK adults to divulge what the most popular additions to outside space are. Forty-seven per cent of respondents would like a patio and decking, while 38% just want an outdoor space with enough room for a table and chairs.
Further down the pole, 10% of homebuyers would like a summerhouse and 22% would like a hot tub. Built in BBQs prove to be a popular option to make homes more attractive at 27%.
Ian Williams, a Spokesman for Ocean Finance, commented: "While the humble shed is currently the most popular garden feature, the number of people who dream of owning a built-in BBQ might see the traditional shed coming down to make way for some alfresco cooking.”
