How to create a beautiful garden

How to create a beautiful garden


As we live in hope that the weather will get warmer, with more blue skies and sunshine, we've put together some home improvement ideas for the garden to help you get yours ready for lounging in the sun, admiring the scenery and having the all important barbeque.

Sculpt and Shape

An easy and cheap way to transform your garden is to mow the lawn.  If you cut your lawn into a clear defined shape, such as a circle, oblong or a square, it can make such a difference visually. 

A simple way to do this would be to mark out the area with string and use a spade to cut away the excess grass.

Plants and flowers

Using a variety of plants and flowers with different colours and textures can really lift a garden and give it a unique look and feel. Try and view your garden as an extension to your home. As you would choose a colour scheme for your bedroom for example, think of choosing a colour palette for your garden.  Blocks of colour can make a huge impact visually. 

Tidy up and look smart

Try and ensure that your paths and patios are free from weeds and overgrown stray grass. It can be a laborious task, but it's well worth the effort.  And clean your patios, paths and decking with a pressure washer - you'll be surprised at what a difference it can make.

Twinkling lights

Outdoor solar lights dotted around the garden is a quick, simple and inexpensive way to bring an attractive glow to a patio area and pathway. Depending on the layout of your garden, you can arrange them through tree or shrub branches. Another option is to attach them to fences or trellises.
