So the summer is over and we are well and truly into the autumnal months. But that doesn’t mean to say that we don’t want to be outside as much as possible.
Autumn has been known to give us a fair few sunny days, albeit it on the crisp side, and being outside is really good for the soul. But, having said that, is your garden the place you would normally go to? Possibly not if it hasn’t been as well maintained as you would have liked.
Garden Clear Out
It’s fair to say, just like our homes can, our gardens can become very cluttered. It’s either random chairs lurking about, kids toys if you have them, tools and even some of the things you no longer want in your home. Destined for the waste centre but you just haven’t got round to taking them. So now’s your chance to give your garden a big clearout and look at what you have to work with. Getting your garden in a much tidier condition will allow you to see what you need to work on to get it back to its former glory. If you do have things that need to stay in your garden, like lawn mowers or garden tools, then consider investing in a shed. Or even a storage box so that they have a home.
Design The Space
Much like you do in the interior your garden needs you to spend a bit of time thinking about the design aspect. Do you want to see lots of florals around the flower beds, in hanging baskets or pots on the patios? Do you want to see something more functional looking, so a neatened up lawn and a clear decking space. Treat your garden as if it is an extension of your home and watch it flourish. You can even go as far as to picking certain colours you want to see more of? This can be reflected in the flowers you choose to plant in your garden.
Make A Feature
Some people like to have a feature that catches your eye. Very similar to how a feature wall would work in a decorated room. So perhaps you may want to think about adding a water element to your garden or a pretty rockery filled with flowers and shrubs. Some people still enjoyed a lawned area, and instead of having the hassle of mowing a lawn to keep it looking trim and green, why not invest in artificial grass instead? Places like LazyLawn could give you the feature you are hoping for. You could even choose to use a decked area as your feature and invest in some unique garden furniture to make it look extra special.
Finally, once everything is in place keep your garden maintained. This means mowing your lawns and keeping them neat and tidy. You could even consider giving your grass a treatment to look much greener and healthy. It’s about keeping your flower beds free of weeds. Brushing patio and decked areas if leaves or debris have fallen. Once you have everything in place, it’s much easier to keep on top of.
