Let’s face it, the garden can often be an area of your home that gets the least amount of attention. It might be because it is only certain points of the year that you want to be out there. Now that we are heading into spring, your thoughts might be more focused on your garden and less on the interiors of your home. So how can you make it usable space ready for when the warm weather graces its presence? Here are some of the things to consider. 0
Give the garden a basic tidy up
One of the first things that you can consider doing is tidy up the garden. This is pretty basic, but it can be a great way to enable you to see exactly what space you have to work with. Initially, after the winter the garden can be full of debris. Sticks and leaves from the winter months, even things that you left out there before the weather turned bad, such as children’s playthings or old furniture. Give the whole space a complete tidy up, get rid of unwanted things, clean up things you want to keep and then see what it is you have to work with. Doing this alone could be just enough to get you back outside in the garden.
Invest in some new pieces
The next thing to think about would be to decide on exactly what you want in your new garden space. This could be a new sofa and chair set up, or a new table and chairs combination to eat outside. The difference this could make to your garden is worthwhile. It could give you the chance to spend more time with the family outside and enjoy the great summer that we can have.
Cut the grass and weed the flowerbeds
Many garden areas have grass and flower beds that might need dealing with. The grass itself can cover a huge surface area, and so it may be time to cut and trim it down so that it looks neat and tidy. You might also want to look at putting down some grass seed so that it can be full of life by the time the summer comes. Another investment might be artificial grass which could make the garden a useable space for longer. The next thing to think about would be the flowerbeds. They may have been inundated with weeds and this could be causing problems. Take some time to get rid of them and then you will see an instant difference to your garden and how it looks.
Create a patio or separate space for entertaining
Finally, you may want to take some time to consider creating a patio out a separate space for entertaining. It could be the simplest of things, but it can make a big difference to how your garden looks. This could work well for any new furniture that you invest in.
Let’s hope this has given you some ideas on how you can make your garden a usable space this year.
