For many of us the garden is as important as any room in the home. Whether you’re a proud gardener, or just enjoy having some outside space to relax in, it’s important to ensure that what you love is covered under your Home Insurance.
Whilst specialist Garden Insurance is available from some providers, Age Co Home Insurance may be all you need. Age Co Buildings Insurance will cover outbuildings, walls, fences and patios against accidental damage to the combined value of £1500. Age Co Contents Insurance will cover flower beds, plants, lawn and shrubs against accidental damage up to the value of £1500, plus an additional £600 for theft of trees, shrubs and gardening equipment.
Age Co Buildings Insurance covers more of your garden than you might think. Your garden walls, gates, fences, paths and patios are all covered as standard, and even carports, permanent swimming pools and hot tubs, tennis courts and outbuildings!
These structures are covered against a variety of risks including:
• Fire, lightning or explosion
• Malicious damage
• Damage from falling objects such as aerials, branches, or telegraph poles
• Accidental Damage Cover (optional add-on for an extra cost)
Plants and flowers define how a garden looks and feels, and it can be devastating when they are damaged. If you’re a keen gardener who likes to grow from scratch, you may also be shocked to learn how expensive some fully grown plants can be to replace.
Age Co Contents Insurance will pay for damage to your hedges, lawns and plants caused by:
• Fire, lightning or earthquakes
• Malicious damage
• Falling television aerials, satellite dishes, branches, or building masonry
It’s easy to forget about items that are kept outside when calculating the value of your home contents. In fact, the value of garden furniture, gardening equipment and lawnmowers can quickly add up.
Age Co Contents Insurance covers your garden hedges, lawns and plants up the sum of £1500. It also covers other items in your garden, such as gardening equipment or furniture, up to the sum of £600.
For added peace of mind, Age Co Buildings Insurance will pay for damage caused to your garden if the emergency services need to attend an emergency at your home. This even includes re-landscaping costs, if necessary.
Designed with the needs of over 50s in mind, Age Co Buildings and Contents Insurance is rated 5 Stars by Defaqto and has no hidden admin fees. Buying Age Co Home Insurance also helps support Age UK's charitable work. Find out more about Age Co Home Insurance.
