If you’re looking to make a real difference to your garden, simple gardening techniques may not quite make the cut. That’s why we’ve listed some of the best ways in which you can transform your garden with landscaping.
Why is Garden Design Important?
Taking pride in the appearance of your garden will help you to create an outdoor space that you and your guests can use in the summer months. Ideally your garden should be the outdoor extension of your home. Designing your garden can be a fun, creative process. Garden design can also add value to your property and enable you to create your very own outdoor haven for you to relax and unwind.
Decking and Decked Areas
Using decking in your garden can help create a cosy atmosphere and provide a perfect outdoor seating opportunity. Decking is both stylish and practical, and is ideal for outdoor dining and summer BBQs. The best option is to use sawn treated timber to create a decked area in the garden. That way, your decking will be reliable, durable, and able to withstand wet weather conditions.
Similarly, patios can create a defined area in your garden. You can place your patio to the rear of your property to create a summer dining area, allowing you access to your garden without having to step on any grass. Patio paving is both visually appealing and highly practical. You can also use this to create a pathway in your garden, allowing you to easily access plants without having to constantly tread on your lawn.
Planting and Gardening
Plants in your garden will truly bring it to life. Consider having plants at various levels, such as in-ground flower beds, plant pots, tall trees, and climbing plants up your fences. This can help your garden become visually interesting and create unique areas around your outdoor space. A mixture of trees, flowers, and shrubs will create an ideal hotspot for wildlife. Choose plants that suit to your taste and the type of environment you want to create.
Outdoor Furniture and Equipment
Garden accessories will make your space a little bit more exciting, while also making it more functional. Choose a garden furniture set depending on your taste. You could opt for a rattan style which is attractive, durable, and available in a variety of styles and colours. For a more rustic theme, wooden furniture is sturdy and can be painted in a colour of your choosing. Finish off your garden with a chimenea for those cooler evenings, outdoor mirrors, and bright decorations.
