Is your Garden Set for Summer?

If you’ve not already done so, it’s time to get the garden ready for summer.  This gives you the perfect excuse for a bit of re-vamp.  Here are 5 improvement ideas:

1.  Create a theme

You can have lots of fun by creating an outdoor theme.  Choose chic Mediterranean, trendy Miami-style, rustic bistro, country-cottage, vibrant tropical, or contemporary Oriental.  Your garden probably lends itself to a particular style…just go with it.

2.  Make your space more sociable

You’ll get more out of your garden by creating a space that you actually want to hang out in.  This means lazy lounge chairs, relaxed bench seating, comfy cushions, and a place to keep some glasses and a cork-screw.

3.  Invest in a feature piece

This could be a water fountain, sculpture, gazebo, archway, a tree or feature wall.  It will give your outdoor space a wow factor, adding interest to the landscape and creating a focal point.

4.  Make it low maintenance

Do you see the garden as more of a hassle than place for enjoyment?  You can cut down on the chores with some clever landscaping.  Choose hardy plants that don’t need much TLC.  Gravel borders to stop weeds.  Install artificial grass and forget about mowing and edging.

5.  Plant something you love

Whether its roses, a strawberry plant, an apple tree, or exotic tropical flower, plant something that will make you smile.  Put it in a prime position so you can see it every time you look out the kitchen window.
