It’s now the perfect time of the year to start thinking about your garden and how you can get it looking even better. Gardens tend to go a while without being touched before having a transformation. People get caught up with projects for the inside of their home and therefore find it easy to forget about putting a budget to one side for their back yard.
Your back yard should be seen as one of the most important rooms of the house yet so many of us don’t even see it as a room. When it comes to your garden design there is an abundance of options, from straight, crisp lines right through to mini jungles of plants a garden has the power to be personalized to the maximum.
Have a look below at some of the ways you could think about improving your back yard:
Boundaries are simply the edges of your space outside. They can be walls, fences or shrubbery and they often clearly define the edges of your outdoor space. It’s not only important to keep your boundaries in great condition it’s also a great way to start your personlisation to your garden. You’re able to add a splash of color to fences, choose the bushes that you would like and even choose specialized bricks to use for any walls. Bear in mind that changing these boundaries can sometimes be expensive so if your not wanting to spend a large chunk of your budget you might be better off repairing and maintaining existing boundaries that are in place.
Whether you want to fill pots, flower beds, window boxes or your borders adding flowers to your back yard not only adds a it of individuality it also adds some much-needed color. If you have a few bits and bobs left from previous years you could add extra flowers to bulk it up or if they’ve seen better days replace them altogether. When planting flowers it’s a good idea to do some research as different flowers have different needs, you will find that some flower needs more sunlight and therefore need to be in a sunnier part of your yard. Also, don’t forget that some flowers and bulbs need to be planted at certain times of the year so you may need to plan in advance.
Every good garden has an area where you’re able to dine alfresco and enjoy a meal outdoors. However, you don’t need to just stop at adding some outdoor furniture. You can also think about adding a vegetable patch, much like with flowers you will need to complete some research for timings with planting and the levels of care that some vegetables and fruits may need. You could also consider adding an outdoor kitchen or pizza oven where you can not only dine outside but also cook.
Pots And Containers
A really easy and cost-effective way of updating your yard is to add in some new pots and containers filled with your favorite plants. You’re able to add an injection of color to any area of your garden by doing this. Just remember that plants need a lot of room for roots, so try to use adequate sizes.
