This is not a drill; summer is here!
With the weather looking like it’s turned a corner, it means more time spent outside enjoying your garden.
If you’re looking at your outside space and feeling unsure how to make the most out of it, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to find out the most inventive ways to maximise your outdoor space.
Lockdown is lifting, and we can finally see people again, so make the most of it, invite those friends down from all parts of the country and have that catch-up.
“But where will they stay?” you ask.
Your amazing glamping pod, obviously. Adding a glamping pod into your garden is a great way to add an extension that can be flexible and fit your garden’s size and needs.
You can decorate it how you want, from your own private Eden to a guest home for when you have friends and family to stay. Whatever you use it for, the flexibility offered on size, materials, and shape makes it a great addition and a piece of your garden that you never knew was missing.
Upcycle Unloved Furniture
Having become a popular trend in recent years, upcycling is the buzzword for 2021, and it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.
It is a great sign to see upcycling getting the credit it deserves as it doesn’t just protect the environment and stop us from buying new things endlessly, but it’s also a great way to make your home feel unique and personal.
Giving a new purpose to an unloved piece of furniture can go a long way to provide free gardening solutions. From old kitchen shelving fashioned into a handy potting bench to an old chimney pot repurposed as a planter, the possibilities are endless. All it takes is a little imagination.
Move A Mirror
Doesn’t every home have a mirror they can afford to move into the garden? You’d be amazed at the difference it can make in helping your garden look bigger. By reflecting the light, mirrors can also make your space feel brighter and even more magical.
Create A Zen Area
Having a garden, whether large or small, is a real bonus for any home right now. Not only do gardens provide a welcome space to venture outside, breaking up the dullness of being stuck indoors – they also offer a great source of tranquillity.
With green space proven to help us relax and unwind, creating an area dedicated to relaxation can transform how you use your garden. You could put in a hammock, comfortable outdoor furniture, and add accessories that make you feel calm, like a wind chime or a bird feeder, so you can watch the birds come and go.
You can transform your garden in quick and simple ways by utilising the resources that you’ve already got and using them in different ways. Or you can bring in new, unique finds that add intrigue to the space. If that’s not enough of a transformation, garden buildings offer a home away from home in your outdoor space.
Whether you use it for entertaining, practising hobbies, or simply relaxing, this outdoor space is guaranteed to transform how you use your garden.
