Everyone dreams of having a garden they can thoroughly enjoy. Whether it be with a cocktail in hand on a summer afternoon or staying cosy on an Autumn evening, your garden is a gift. Have you become tired of your outdoor space looking the same, without knowing how to bring it back to life? Here’s how to reinvent your garden without having to be a gardening pro!
If you want to reinvent your garden, astro turf is the latest craze that’s making people’s lives so much better. The stunning synthetic grass can be laid down in your garden and will take care of itself! You’ll never have to drench it with water or use sprinklers ever again on your lawn. Trimmed to perfection, astro turf is the best long-lasting way to rejuvenate your space.
As well as tending to itself, astro turf looks pristine all year round. No matter the weather, come rain or shine, it’ll never fade in quality. You can choose from plenty of thickness options (though 25-30mm is recommended), and a range of glorious colours.
By replacing your uneven, patchy garden grass with astro turf, you’ll give your space the TLC it deserves. Its materials also give it a bouncy, cushioned surface. You can dance around in the sunshine, play games and enjoy swings and slides with no problems. If a child or pet likes to tumble, they’ll be perfectly safe on astro turf.
Having a set of weather-proof garden chairs is essential for anyone who likes to spend time outdoors. However, why not step it up a notch? By investing in an outdoor heater, you can enjoy the fresh air 365 days a year. Perhaps with an undercover area or umbrella, anyway!
With an outdoor heater, you can stay cosy with your family and make memories to last a lifetime right at home. There are plenty of heating options too. If you’d rather save the cost, why not buy a small firepit? This way, you can top it up with wood on the occasions you want to spend outside. Imagine roasting marshmallows under the stars without having to go camping! Lush.
Of course, you can also buy items such as the freestanding patio heater. Although it may be slightly more expensive, you’ll be able to use it over and over again. This is a long-term product which not only will give you warmth but will bring more height to your garden too.
Adding a pathway to your garden can give it a whole new aesthetic. You can place tiles of whatever shape you like, stone or wood, and create a walkway. You may think a path is simply a way to get across your garden, but it will bring it to life with a diversity of texture.
If you do lay down astro turf, adding a pathway will never be an issue. Specific cuttings can be made in the astro turf to make way for stepping stones. Even better, the walkway will never become uneven or slanted in the mud. On the other hand, if you still have natural garden grass, adding a path will still look wonderful. Simply trim around the edges of the tiles to ensure they stay in place.
Growing flowers has never been easier. Nowadays, you can buy potted plants that just need a little water every day. Or, if you want to dig into the soil, you can grow shrubs, trees and bushes that burst with colour! Sunflowers, Hydrangeas and Azaleas are a few of the ever-popular plants that homeowners go crazy over. Not only will your garden be filled with sunshine, but it’ll be as colourful as you can make it.
Of course, bright, busy colours aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. Consider planting herbs, fruit and veg. Not only will your garden be gorgeous, but it’ll be tasty too!
