It’s official, spring has finally arrived. Make the most of your garden this season by implementing 5 simple updates to enjoy all your outdoor space has to offer.
Space MakersTry creating different areas for your garden. Segmenting your space is a great way of using each valuable inch, without overloading or cluttering your garden. You may want to define somewhere for eating - a garden dining set for outdoor lunches and suppers. A section where children can play or learn to grow plants and vegetables without worry. A quiet corner with a cocoon or teak garden bench for listening to music or reading a book. Use trellis and planters to make divisions, without blocking our light or disrupting the natural balance of the outdoors.
Rethink and RefreshPower washing stones and slabs will instantly lift the look of your garden now winter is over. As will removing unsightly weeds and overgrown leaves. If you’ve managed to keep your space nice and tidy over the winter months, or have recently given it a quick spruce, it might be as simple as an injection of colour of texture. Outdoor scatter cushions, throws and pots will immediately bring in new life and make you garden feel brand new.
Grow WildlyWorried you’re not green-fingered enough for a floral display? Add low maintenance colour and a dash of feel good by using seed bombs or wildflower seeds to grow wildlife-friendly flowers quickly and easily.
Paint a PotMake a quick change by painting pots, walls or fences to create a new colour scheme. Whether you are thinking of a monochrome, bright or botanical palette, you can easily transform your space by focussing on key details within the garden that are inexpensive to paint over. And by changing their appearance rather than replacing them, you can refresh them each year to enjoy a new aesthetic.
Fuel with FireExtend the hours you can comfortably spend outside with the warmth and glow from a fire pit table. Perfect for tempting friends and family outside when it’s a little chillier, it’s a simple way of transforming your garden from somewhere to spend a few hours on a warm day to an additional room you can enjoy for good, chunks of time.
With a little bit of TLC and creativity your new and improved garden will be ready to enjoy in no time at all.
