Making Your Garden Ready For The Summer

I'm sure if we cross our fingers and toes for long enough, we may just get some sun this summer. And if we do, you’ll be aspiring to spend as much of it as possible in the garden. Whether you like to lounge in the sun, play with your kids, or entertain friends, your garden will need to be looking it’s best. Follow our handy hints and tips to ensure your garden is looking the business this summer.

Garden For The Summer
The Basics

Now it’s not the most attractive of tasks, and if you hate it or just don’t have time for it, get someone to help. But, weeding, pruning and mowing your grass is a vital part of managing a garden and will encourage it to look its best when you come to spend time there.

Planters

What I love about planters, is the flexibility. It’s the ability to move it about and ‘style’ your garden, just like you might use terrarium planters in your home. Blend and coordinate colours and textures, and heights, and group accordingly. Sometimes you’ll need to wait until you fill them with plants to see how they compliment together.

Solar Powered Lighting

There are millions of solar light products on the market right now, all at different price points, so you have no excuses when it comes to finding something perfect for your space. Lighting will drastically change the way your garden looks and feels in the fading light and produce the perfect atmosphere for entertaining.

Water Feature

There’s something so relaxing and tranquil about adding a water feature to your garden. They come in all shapes and sizes, with many being solar-powered now so no need for clunky wiring.

Seating

Well, this is critical if you want to entertain, and even if you just love having your morning brew in the sun. Choose something that suits your space and style of your garden.

Colour

We’ve mentioned many different ways above that you will deliver in colour to your garden in a natural way. But you may like to be a little more controlled in planning how the colour will work in the design. Decide on two main colours and then a third accent colour and blend them into items like the planters, seating, accessories and lighting.

Decoration

And so finally, accessorise. As mentioned above, use lighting and more to add flair and character to space. You don’t have to do it all at once, add a bit each year, and you’ll quickly start to see it all come together!
