With summer well on the way, now’s the perfect time to get the garden in tip-top condition. If you want to sit out and enjoy your garden in the hot sunny months, there’s a few things you can do right now to transform your outdoor space.
Here, we’ll look at 3 ways to transform your garden ready for summer.
- De-clutter and tidy
Firstly, you’ll want to start by making the garden clean and tidy. De-cluttering can take time, especially if you haven’t really maintained the garden recently. However, moving things such as rubbish, old toys and old furniture, will help to make the garden more spacious, as well as give it a much nicer aesthetic appeal.
If you have a lawn, make sure it’s cut, and any leaves are raked up. Once the garden is tidy, you can then work on enhancing its visual appeal. If the garden is extremely untidy, you could always recruit helpers to minimise the work.
- Add plants and flowers
Flowers and plants tend to make the biggest difference in terms of garden design. If you’re pushed for time, you could purchase pre-grown plants and flowers and simply plant them for an instant improvement. However, if you’re looking to save money, you might want to consider growing your plants and flowers from seeds.
It can be pretty difficult knowing which plants and flowers to add if you’re new to gardening. However, you’ll find plenty of inspiration online. You could also hire a landscape expert to help if you have the budget.
- Invest in a good outdoor dining set
Finally, once you have a nice, clean and aesthetically pleasing garden, you need an area you can relax and enjoy all of your hard work. If you don’t already have one, or your existing outdoor dining set is a little worse for wear, why not invest in a new one?
You’ll find stores like Cox & Cox offer high-quality outdoor dining sets which can really enhance the look of the garden, as well as offer a stylish place to sit out in the sun.
The above is just 3 ways you can transform your garden. It doesn’t have to break the bank and although it does take some time and effort, it will definitely be worthwhile once summer arrives!
