If you’re looking to spruce up your garden space and make it an even better place to spend time this spring, here are a few ideas to get you started and help your transform your outdoors into the best part of your home, many of which are extremely affordable:
GIVE THE PLANT POTS A LICK OF PAINT
A really easy way to spruce up the garden and add a bit of colour is to repaint your old plant pots. You can paint them all one colour for a simple and elegant look or go all out by decorating them in crazy patterns depending on your style, but whatever you choose, be sure to have fun with it.
INSTALL AN ORANGERY
What better way to spruce up your garden for spring than by installing a DIY conservatory or orangery so that you can enjoy the outdoors even when you need to stay indoors? It’s easier than you think to install one if you have the space, and if you fill it with comfy spring-coloured furniture and a few plants, it’ll be a great place to relax and enjoy your garden in the evenings.
FEED THE LAWN
If your lawn is… well looking a little forlorn, it might be a good idea to buy mulch and natural fertiliser so that it gets back to its beautiful, lush and green self as soon as possible.
JET WASH THE PATIO
If your patio is looking a little worse for wear after the challenging winter season, you can get it back to looking as good as new again by giving it a quick blast with a jet washer, which will remove all the dirt and have it sparkling in no time at all. If you don’t own a jet washer, you may be able yo rent one locally for a small fee.
HANG A FEW LIGHTS
Fairly lights and garden lanterns are a very affordable way of adding some sparkle to your garden this spring. They’ll give the yard a warm glow when the evenings close in and make the place seem a bit more magical. Hang them from the fence, line the driveway with them, maybe even light a few candles, and your garden will look amazing.
PAINT THE SHED
If you have a shed, chances are it takes up a lot of space, so giving it a makeover makes total sense. Instead of sticking to boring brown, why not paint it a fetching shade of lavender, pink or sky blue instead? Be creative and turn your shed into an attraction in its own right.
Attracting wildlife, whether by planting lots of wildflowers, hanging feeders for the birds or putting nuts out for the squirrels is a great way to add life to your garden. You’ll have so much fun watching nature happen all around you.
Fixing up your garden takes time and effort, but it’s so worth it when you can spend your free time enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors right in your own backyard.
