During winter months it is easy to forget about your garden and then as summer approaches you may look at your garden and think “Oh, this needs updating and tidying up!”. In this article, we will give hints, tips and tricks of how to update your garden and how to make it look as beautiful and inviting as it can be.
A garden bar is a great way of adding an indoor-outdoor social space to your garden. Shelters are needed when we are living in the Great British climate, which means we are mostly subjected to rainy days. You do need to spend thousands of a bar either, many garden owners build their own DIY bars, so you can do this by upcycling some wood you already own, or to upcycle some old furniture that no longer has any use. The project of creating a bar can also be fun and once the bar has been made the results are very rewarding.
Look at your grass
Are you fed up of looking at your uneven, dry or unruly grass? If this is so, then it will be of benefit to consider replacing your natural grass with artificial grass. This kind of grass does not grow and will always be a vibrant shade of green and most people can’t even tell that artificial grass is artificial as it super-natural looking. In fact, Grass Warehouse offers some of the most affordable and best-quality artificial grass in the whole of the UK.
Add a summer house
A summer house also adds an outdoor-indoor feel to a garden and garden owners can spend hours relaxing in their summer house. Like outdoor bars, summer houses are also very sociable, and it almost adds space to a house as people can go and socialise in their summer house away from their homes. They also add character to gardens and children can even play in summer houses if they get the opportunity to.
Add some new plants and flowers
Adding plants and flowers to a garden are easy and low cost methods of adding beauty to your outdoor space. Various types of plants can be purchased, and you can even add trees to your garden if you are looking for some more privacy. Roses and daisies are popular favourites of garden flowers, or you could even go exotic and purchase a palm tree.
Have a perfect patio
If your patio is full of weeds or if has become discoloured, take some care of it or remove your current patio and replace it with an alternative, however you may decide to fill this space make sure it is appealing and it does not look tired or worn out. You may decide to add some gravel to some spaces of your garden to give it a stylish and looked after look. Some garden owners even use decking as a social space in their garden.
Have an outdoor colour scheme
You probably already have an indoor colour scheme, so why not also have an outdoor colour scheme too? This will add glamour to your outdoor space. There is plenty of inspiration on social media websites such as Pinterest and Instagram, so have a look at what other garden owners are doing in terms of colour schemes within their gardens. Green may be an obvious choice of colour scheme as that colour is already incorporated into your garden, but the use of whites, blues and reds may also give the garden some character and vibrancy.
