There’s nothing better than summertime in the garden.
However it takes work to get your garden SUMMER READY!
He is some tip for you..
1. Preparation work
.clearing out the gutters to prevent house damage
.empty the shed get rid of things you don’t need (be brutal)
.install a water butt to catch water
.banish the weeds from pathways
.Check your fence for any repairs and maybe give it a lick of paint
2. Create the perfect lawn
For the lawn lovers out there,
Top up your lawn with seed or patch with new turf giving it time to settle in before cutting. Using top soil to scatter over the seeds and a good water.
Try and stay off your lawn for a few days letting seed or turf take.
3. Thinking about decking.
If you want a low maintenance garden for summer, then adding a deck is a fantastic and stylish way to prepare your garden for summer.
A deck is not only a great place to relax or dine al fresco but can add value to your home too.
Once your decking is complete, think of it as an extra living space or another room without walls. Consider outdoor trunks for storing cushions and chair covers and invest in high-quality, durable furniture set.
4. Barbecue Time
Nothing says summer more than a barbecue
Typically, your choice is split between two options; gas and charcoal barbecues.
A gas bbq is usually much easier to use, and you just switch on and go.
You have much more control over the heat, and the clean-up operation minimal.
However with a charcoal bbq, you can create an authentic smoky bbq flavour (this is my favourite )
If you have a bbq already this is the perfect time for a good clean so your ready to go.
5.Making the most out of your garden
We hope your be spending most of your summer time in your garden, so it deserves Asas much attention as any other room in the house.
While flowers provide colour in the day, think about evenings in your garden too and how you can inject light and colour into your night -time garden.
Outdoor fairy lights can offer a beautiful boho vibe while Hugh hurricane candles in jars can look great too.
