Summer time is here and there is no doubt that you will be looking at spending more time in your garden. For the less enthusiastic gardeners however the back garden may be looking a little worse for wear but let’s not worry. Here are some great ways to create a stunning summer garden.
Refresh and Renew
Refresh and renew your garden in a few simple steps. Jet wash the patio to ensure a deep clean and remove any dirt that may have built up over the winter months. This will give the impression of a freshly laid patio. Refresh the wood in your garden by painting it with weather proof paint this will seal out any moisture to prevent the build-up of moss.
Bring your wilted garden back to life. A simple lawn care routine will ensure that your grass is looking green and full of life, remove any unsightly weeds and treat the area with week killer to prevent them from returning. Add hanging baskets or trellis with brightly coloured flowers around your garden to bring in colour, if gardening isn’t a preferred hobby then you can buy hanging baskets ready made up from nurseries and garden centres. Place a bird bath and bird feeder to your garden to attract the wildlife and create a haven for the birds.
If you’re looking to relax in the garden with a great summer novel then you will need somewhere comfortable to lay back and put your feet up. There are a variety of alternatives from your regular garden bench. A hanging pod will allow you to climb in and escape into a world of peacefulness, the shape of the pod will give you great comfort to truly relax and unwind after a hard day at work. Rattan garden patio sets are a great alternative to your average table and chairs they are comfortable yet practical and come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes so will suit all types of families.
You can create tranquillity by hanging wind chimes from branches or adding a water feature in the corner of your garden. If you have a tree or two in your garden, hang a hammock. If you are lucky enough to have a large garden section the bottom half off and create your own secret garden. Add stepping stones which lead to a bench or a pond. Let the flowers grow wild and beautiful to attract the butterflies.
