7 Ways to Improve your Garden this Spring

garden improvements1. Install artificial grass

A fake lawn will transform your patchy, faded, lack-lustre grass, giving your garden a complete makeover.  Plus, you’ll be free of the chores and maintenance required to keep it neat.

2. Create a sheltered area

This will allow you to get much more use out of your outdoor space and enjoy your garden this summer, even if it rains.  There’s no need to invest in a lavish gazebo, be resourceful – could you create a roofed area with materials from your local DIY store?

3. Add some lighting

Creative, stylish, outdoor lighting can give you an attractive place to dine and entertain after-dark.  Use imaginatively to create ambiance – twinkle lights for romance, cool coloured spot lights for a contemporary space.

4. Form a lounge area

Invest in a garden sofa and coffee table.  Perfect for drinks, light lunches and sitting outside with the newspaper.  Or, make existing areas more comfortable with better quality chair cushions.

5. Upgrade your BBQ

If you’re using a cheap charcoal BBQ, consider investing in a fast gas alternative.  You’ll be able to enjoy outdoor cooking on the spur of the moment – ideal with the changeable UK weather.

6. Grow your own

Dig up a vegetable patch and plant some seeds.  It’s great fun to watch them grow and rewarding when you harvest home-grown produce.  Or, use pots Jamie Oliver style.

7. Add art

Make your garden look more attractive with wall art or sculpture.  Decor and accessories can be used outdoors, just as they are inside.  You can even use the same interior design principles- e.g. add a wall mirror to a courtyard to give the impression of space.
