Our gardens are important to many of us. They are a personal space where we can share cocktails with our friends on a summers evening, a place where we drink our morning cup of tea while watching the bird’s flit around the trees, or somewhere where we can just sit and get some fresh air away from everything we are doing.
If you find yourself popping out to your garden and not feeling something like a ‘breath of fresh air’, you might find that you need to upgrade and improve your outside space to make the most of it.
This piece will talk you through 4 ways you can improve your garden!
Tidying up can often feel like a big job, especially because sometimes it is. However, it is one of the fastest ways to make your garden look completely transformed. As with any good haircut, cutting down stray branches, overgrown bushes, brushing up dead leaves, and removing dead plants are a fast-track way to making your garden look ten times better and also giving you a bunch of more space to work with.
You will be surprised what you are left with after you put the hard work in of clearing everything up, and then you can really start to get creative.
Deep Clean and New Paint
Along the same vein of tidying up, deep cleaning the patio, furniture, shed, and fences can brighten up the entire garden. If you can, invest in a pressure washer. Not only are they extremely fun to use, but they are very versatile too, meaning you can clean pretty much everything in your garden with one – just make sure to wear some old clothes and shoes while you do it! After you have finished cleaning everything, you might feel like everything could do with a new lick of paint – which will help make everything look as good as new.
Get Splash Happy
So, you might not have space for a swimming pool, and you might have little need for one either – Welcome to Britain. That being said, this will not stop you from getting something a little smaller such as a pond or a water feature. Humans love being by the water, so having your very own little oasis in your back garden can only be a good thing. Head over to Water-garden.co.uk to find out what you need to create the perfect pond or water feature.
Up Your Plant Game
Plants and flowers make a garden, so it is time to think about what styles and colours you want blooming. If you are short on time and energy, then why not opt for rows of wild self-seeding flowers? All you need to do is sprinkle them on the ground, and nature will do the rest. Many wildflowers are also great for the environment too and help pollination. So, not only do they look stunning, but they also help our bees and bugs do their thing.
