Patio, Lawn And Garden Home

Many people dream of living in a home with a patio, lawn and garden. However, it is not easy because where because of the hefty taxes that you would have to play. Yet it is precisely for this reason that owners of such landed property are envied. So if you do own a home with a patio, lawn and garden you are probably in the upper echelons of society, probably business people or very highly educated in corporate positions or high political office. But it takes more than a dream to own such homes. It takes guts to go out and earn the big bucks to own such property.

So what is so good about owning a home with a patio, lawn and garden? Firstly, it creates a very cosy kind of feeling. Such homes are usually not in the hustle and bustle of the town. They tend to be in secluded, scenic spots such as near a reservoir or park. So this is an added advantage of living in such a home.

Secondly, living in such homes allows you to gather large groups to have a party. You are never short of space. You do not need to book or rent a restaurant or a dining hall to hold a function. You can have it right at your doorstep. You could also have a barbecue with all the lights switched off, except perhaps for a little lamp or camp fire.

Thirdly, people living in such homes tend to feel more secure because they are definitely well off financially. But whether they feel secure as a family is doubtful because we see many affluent families fighting for their share of property. Such families are also not afraid to wash dirty linen in public. But whatever bad can be said about owners of such homes, they are admired because it does show their ability to afford such homes. Owning such homes is enviable but maintaining the place is not enviable.

Strange as it may seem, some people do not aspire to own such homes because they feel that it is a waste of their financial resources to pay the property tax and upkeep the place. These homes are usually bigger and you would need to employ some domestic help to maintain cleanliness.

Others feel afraid being in a large space especially if they are left alone. Then there is always the risk of intruders which cannot be monitored constantly. It was recently reported in the press that some foreigners came here because they felt that such homes were easy targets for burglary. So they bought their airline tickets and travelled some twenty thousand kilometres just to rob and plunder.

But such incidents are rare and we should not be controlled by external forces. We could always install a burglar alarm system. Having a trained guard dog is another way of keeping the place safe.

Beneath that fear and squander of financial resources, there will always be envy of people living in homes with a patio, lawn and garden.
