Your garden is just as much a part of your home as your house, so with Hiscox Home Insurance you get garden insurance as standard.

Our contents insurance covers garden furniture as well as the contents of your shed and garage up to £10,000, including bicycles. And if you take out buildings cover, the outbuildings will also be covered if they suffer damage caused by falling trees, storm or flood. 

Whether you simply like to sit back and enjoy your garden or take a more active role in keeping it trim, you’ve probably invested time and money in making it feel like home. However, many householders may find that their existing home insurance falls short when it comes to offering garden insurance cover.

    Why you might consider garden insurance cover

    • Your garden is a vulnerable area of your home. The Office for National statistics recorded that in 2015-2016, garden furniture was stolen in 44% of all thefts outside a dwelling – making it the most commonly taken item in that category.
    • The contents of your shed and garage, such as lawnmowers and tools, could be worth more than you think and may not be covered by your existing home insurance.
    • We offer plant insurance and tree insurance – should your greenery be damaged by vandalism, or stolen.

    • We'll pay up to £10,000 for garden furniture and outdoor equipment left outside.
