The school holidays are here which means it’s time to get out in the garden and soak up those rays. If your garden has been neglected over the last few months, you may be wondering how you can get it ready for summer. Luckily there are some easy fixes you can make when garden planning and enjoy a fun summer with your friends and family.
Give your grass a makeover
Often a refresh of your lawn is all you need to get your garden in good shape again. A neat and tidy lawn is pleasant to look at and can be achieved with a bit of time or patience. Alternatively, garden centres sock artificial grass which can be laid down easily and requires little maintenance once there – so if mowing the lawn and trimming edges isn’t your favourite type of task, this could be something that changes your life.
Install some paving
Paving is becoming more popular in gardens as more people focus on adding dining areas, sun loungers, and even hot tubs, which all benefit from having a nice paved area around them. Using a reliable paving specialist like Simply Paving, you can choose from a number of options to suit all needs. As it can be installed in a weekend, you can enjoy your new garden space instantly.
Revamp your dining area
If your outdoor dining area is looking a bit tatty lately, you may need to give your garden furniture a makeover. Sometimes a lick of paint is all you need to get things in shape again, and your space will look lovely and new. Alternatively, you can pick up some fantastic bargains on outdoor furniture from Groupon, eBay, and Amazon which are more modern and stylish and come complete with waterproof finishes and textiles to stop them getting wrecked in the inevitable British rain!
Add some colour!
Colour can make a lot of difference to your garden, and you don’t even have to plant flowers to achieve it. There are some fantastic ideas online for adding some colour to your outdoor space. Colourful pots, lanterns, and colour accessories are fantastic for bringing a bit of life into your garden and giving it the look and feel of a much warmer climate. If you’re looking to do this on a budget, now’s the time to pick up some great items at bargain stores and even shops like Primark and Matalan that have on-trend, affordable pieces that will give your garden an instant life.
There are some fantastic ways you can breathe fresh air into your garden that will make it a place you want to spend time in on those hot summer days. If you have some old furniture lying around, you could transform them into shabby chic masterpieces that will look great in your newly revamped garden. With a few clever changes, giving your garden a fresh makeover for summer will be a fun and simple project to give your summer off to a great start.
