When it comes to our green spaces, whether you’ve got a sprawling manor garden or a cosy little patio, there’s always room for a bit of sprucing up, isn’t there? If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent a few too many hours watching garden makeover shows, with a cuppa in hand, daydreaming about what could be. Well, chin up, because here’s a list of top-notch ways to give your garden the glow-up it truly deserves.
- Glorious Garden Rooms
Have you ever thought about adding a little extension to your garden? And no, I’m not talking about a shed to store those tools you hardly use. Garden rooms, especially those at Modern Garden Rooms, are a smashing idea! They can be anything – a tranquil office space, an art studio, or even a cosy nook to enjoy a book. The best bit? They can be as plush or as rustic as you fancy.
- Veggie Patches & Herb Gardens
Go on, give “Grow Your Own” a bash! There’s nothing quite like snipping fresh rosemary from your garden or pulling up your own spuds for Sunday roast. Plus, you’ll be dining out on the “I grew this myself” bragging rights for ages. It’s so very satisfying!
- Bee-friendly Blooms
Save the bees, save the world, right? Opt for flowers like lavender, foxgloves, and sunflowers. Not only will your garden look the bee’s knees, but you’ll also give our buzzing friends a helping hand. Oh, and it can be surprisingly fun watching the bees (and butterflies) going about their business in your flowerbeds, too!
- Get Lit!
Garden lighting can transform your space into a magical wonderland. Think fairy lights wrapped around tree trunks, solar lanterns, or even a quirky fire pit for those slightly chilly evenings.
- Water Features
No, you don’t need to build the Trevi Fountain. Even a simple birdbath or a little pond can add a splash (pun intended) of charm to your garden. There’s nothing quite like listening to the gentle sounds of water to help you relax, either.
- Composting Corner
It might not sound glam, but composting is a gardener’s gold. You’ll reduce waste, and in return, Mother Nature gifts you with rich soil for those plants. Win-win! It’s also a really good way to feel good about doing your bit for the world.
- Decking or Paving
A little spot to place your sun lounger, BBQ, or even just a comfy chair can be transformative. This is where you’ll sit, with a cup of tea or a Pimm’s, and admire your handiwork.
- DIY Bird Feeders
Let’s bring in the wildlife, shall we? A bird feeder, especially a DIY one, is a delightful way to invite some feathered friends for a visit. You can also put out nuts for squirrels and food for hedgehogs if you really want to make things more exciting, nature-wise int he garden.
Your garden is an extra space that should be used to the fullest and these ideas will certainly enable you to do that, so what are you waiting for?
