You might be forgiven for failing to realize that summer has arrived given the sun doesn’t seem to have made much of an appearance in a few weeks. But whether or not it’s sunny where you are, you might still want to ensure your garden is looking its best so that when you do spend time outside, it’s in pleasant surroundings.
Whilst we have spent more time at home than ever before and house projects have become increasingly popular, there might still be a few things you want to achieve in order to make your garden look its best. So we have pulled together our top 5 tips to revamp your outdoor look this season. Read on to find out what they are…
1. Spring clean
Ok, so you’re a little late for a spring clean but the principle is the same. You’ll be amazed at what a difference a simple clean up job can do in terms of changing the whole look of your garden. Removing leaves, mowing the lawn, cleaning or getting rid of old furniture, sweep any patio areas, a bit of weeding and pruning – in just a short space of time, you can change it from tatty to tidy.
2. Get yourself a shed
A shed is a really useful addition to any outdoor space and with the range available from retailers such as Aston Sheds, it can also look great too. You’ll have a place to house your tools, furniture and barbecue, and even other essentials such as an outdoor heater or throws to keep warm at night! Replacing an old shed with a stylish new one or getting your first will instantly improve the look of your garden, especially given the fact you can choose the look you want. Loglap, metal, plastic; you can be ultra-modern, ultra-chic, or keep it traditional. And you can even put a seating area in one to create a separate outdoor living space.
3. Shine bright
Indoor lights are often a key feature, so why should the outdoors be any different? Putting in some lighting can overhaul the look of your garden quickly and easily. Solar-powered floor lights, fairy lights strung between trees, a floodlight to illuminate your seating area all create a different ambiance.
There are so many choices of garden accessories that you might struggle to pick a theme! But once you have decided, buy some key pieces that all work together and you’ll revamp your space in no time. Crockery, cups, blankets, cushions, tablecloths, napkins, bunting, ornaments – these can be used to make your garden look truly stunning.
We all need somewhere to sit outside and if your furniture is past its best, replacing it will give the place an uplift, particularly if you buy the type of furniture that stays outside at all times. Discolored, warped, broken, or just old-fashioned items will spoil the space so replace it with modern items to give it a more up-to-date look.
Take a few moments to visualize the look you want for your garden and then it won’t take a whole lot of effort and money to revamp it. Soon you’ll be wanting to spend as much time outdoors as possible, regardless of the weather!
