If you and your family don’t get out into your garden quite as much as you’d like to, it might be time to reevaluate your whole outdoor space. Why do you think you aren’t that interested in the garden? If you look out and see just a basic lawn and a couple of flower beds, you will quickly notice the answer – it’s because it’s time you gave your garden a makeover so that you can enjoy it a whole lot more! Not sure what’s worth adding to your garden? Here are some great ideas.
If you live in an area that benefits from great summers, you should consider adding a pool to your garden. That way, you’ll be able to cool off from the hot sun without having to travel too far! Don’t worry about all the cleaning and maintenance that comes with home pools, as there are lots of companies like http://www.totalpoolservice.com/rancho-cucamonga.html that will take care of all the hard work for you. They can even help drain the pool in autumn.
Not convinced about getting a pool? You could always start off small, and add a little pond to your garden. Ok, so you won’t be able to cool off in it, but it will help your garden look attractive, and will also bring more wildlife to your outdoor space. It’s super easy to make your own pool, and you will find a lot of how-to guides on YouTube.
Another way you can enjoy the fantastic summer weather is by eating outdoors. But without a patio, you won’t be able to enjoy al fresco dining in much comfort, so it’s worth adding a small patio or area of decking onto which you can place your garden furniture. Make sure it’s not too far from the house, though, as you don’t want to carry plates of food across your garden and risk any spillages!
A Veg Patch
If you have been trying to eat more organic food recently, you might want to add a veg patch to your garden so that you can try growing your own. That way, you know that all the veg you eat is completely organic! Take a look on sites like Sarah Raven for a step-by-step guide on how to make your own garden vegetable patch. You will be able to buy plenty of seeds and bulbs from supermarkets and garden stores.
Want even more wildlife into your garden? If so, then add some bird feeders to attract a wide range of garden birds. Birds will look very pretty in your garden and, if you have kids, the little ones will love trying to spot them and recognize different breeds! You might turn them into little bird watchers before long!
Once you add a few of these fabulous additions to your garden, you might never want to leave it! What do you have in your garden? Let me know in the comments
