Now the spring is upon us, most homeowners will consider spending a few days working in their garden. While yours might have looked fantastic last year, we’ve had a pretty harsh winter, and so now there’s a lot of things that need to be done to get it back up to scratch. With that in mind, this article will draw your attention towards some ideas I feel could seriously improve the aesthetics on your land. So, take a few moments to get comfortable and read through all the suggestions below, hopefully then you’ll have enough inspiration to get started this weekend. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend a fortune to make your outdoor space look amazing, you just need to get a little creative.
Build Raised Flower Beds
So long as you’ve got a reputable timber merchant in your local area, building raised flower beds should be cheap and simple. All you need to do is work out exactly where you want them, and take some measurements. Once you have this information, take your notes down to the store and ask the people there to give you a hand. Alternatively, you can create some amazing raised flower beds using old railway sleepers, so it might be worth looking online to see if that’s a viable option for you.
Lay Some Paving
While you want to keep as much of your garden green as possible, there’s nothing wrong with laying some nice paving and creating a path. This has many advantages, the most prominent of which relates to the fact that you won’t have to ruin your grass when hanging the washing out or taking a short stroll around your land. Also, if you take the right approach, it can make your garden look far more inviting. At the end of the day, you want an alluring space, but it also needs to be functional.
Purchase A Water Feature
Nothing says luxury like a working water feature, and in most cases, bigger means better. This is probably the most significant expense you’ll have to deal with when re-designing your garden this summer, and I advise you not to scrimp. At the same time though, try not to purchase anything too large, as it might take away from the rest of your masterpiece. When it comes to positioning, it will look cool if you placed the water feature at the bottom of your paving, as far away from your home as possible.
Add some colour
Whether you do this by including some kind of sculptures or artwork in your garden, or even if you just pick some attractive flowers, adding a little colour can make all the difference. Obviously, which colours you choose are completely up to you, but for the best effects, you should try to pick matching ones. To do this, it’s a good idea to get hold of some paint colour charts from your local DIY shop, as they are usually pretty accurate.
Thanks for reading through this post guys, I sincerely hope you’ve found the information useful. Enjoy the garden makeover, and I’ll see you back here in a few days!
