A final consideration in the garden is the risk of litigation as a result of accidental injury. Keeping a tidy and orderly garden can reduce this risk. However, should you be unfortunate enough for this to happen in your garden your home insurance policy is on hand to help. The public liability element of your home product offers cover for such accidents to the value of €3,175,000 for ROI risks or £2,000,000 for NI risks. Be sure to consult your policy document for full details.
