As the weather gets warmer, we’re inclined to spend more and more time in our gardens, and with the new easing of the lockdown measures, we can begin thinking about carrying out social distancing meet-ups. Therefore, you might be wondering how you can get your garden ready for this year’s summer season.
With many people completing their very own DIY projects around the house, it’s time to move this makeover to the garden. So, if you are bored with how your garden looks, or want to achieve a refreshing look and feel for your outdoor space, here are some tips that you might find helpful on how to give your garden a makeover this 2020.
- Get gardening
Plants can be an amazing way to refresh the look of your garden, particularly colourful flowers like roses. As the vast majority of roses thrive in the summer months, June is the perfect time to start planting these flowers. Remember to take time to prepare the soil before you plant, and that all flowers grow best in soil that is free from grass, clods of dirt, and rocks. Taller plants add texture to your garden and can also be a great way to change the look of your outdoor space. Don’t forget to keep these taller plants supported with canes attached with twine, or invest in 6mm steel rods.
- Consider contacting a landscaping company
Gardens are tricky, it’s true. So don’t be too disheartened if you feel totally overwhelmed with it all. The UK’s most frequently recommended one-stop-shop for the landscaping trade, arbourlandscapesolutions.co.uk, offers a comprehensive array of landscaping materials and tools to carry out the job yourself. What’s more, if you’re still feeling totally lost, their bespoke sourcing service can direct you to the right place. So if you aren’t a DIY expert, then with their help, you can still transform your garden. With a little help from Pinterest as well, you’ll soon have an image of what you want your new garden to look like in no time!
- Do up your garden shed
Ah, the trusty garden shed. An often overlooked part of the garden, and usually full of odd bits and pieces with no other place to go. Face the beast head-on by decluttering your garden shed, and fixing any holes in the roof that may have appeared over the harsher winter months. Then, add a new lick of paint to the outside to fully bring your shed to life!
If you haven’t got a shed to declutter and repaint, consider investing in one. As well as traditional wood, other materials like plastic, steel, and log lap are sturdier and more durable.
By simply planting new plants and flowers, repainting your rusty orange shed, and adding some new landscaping features, it’s possible to completely change your garden’s appearance on the smallest of budgets. What’s more, your friends and family will be forever envious of just how productive you have been in lockdown by totally making over your outdoor space.
