Handy Tips To Get More Out Of Your Garden This Season


Most people enjoy spending time in the garden. Whether you’re a green-fingered planting pro or you just love to soak up the sun with a good book, there’s nothing better than getting some fresh air and appreciating the great outdoors. With summer just around the corner and with lower chances that we can go on holiday this season, it's time to think of how we can get the most of our garden. I am right? So grab a cup of tea and let's see what you can do to enjoy your outdoor space to the maximum this season.

Make your garden more versatile

Tell me, how much time do you spend in your garden at the moment? And how do you spend that time?  If you tend to devote all your time to gardening or you purely use the space as a chill-out area, it is possible to create a versatile space that enables you to enjoy and host of different activities. 

It’s perfectly plausible to make your garden into an area that is suitable for growing plants, entertaining friends, keeping kids amused and winding down. One really effective way of doing this is using different materials to create distinctive zones within the garden. The decking area could be where you sit and chat with friends over a glass of wine while a section of the lawn with a sunken sandpit and a slide and swing is ideal for children. You could hang a hammock from a weeping willow and add lanterns and fairy lights for a laidback vibe or use your patio to showcase planters or house a table and chairs. You could also use different colors or design styles to separate sections. 

Have you thought of a garden room?

I've had in mind a garden room for quite some time now and I really think this might be the year in which I will make my dream come true. You see with all the pandemic situation going on at the moment, it's been quite a challenge for me to work from home and take care of the kids at the same time. Since I don't have enough space in my house for a home office, I thought a modern garden room will solve that situation and give me the dedicated space to work in peace and concentrate better on my job. Of course, this is not the only purpose of a garden room, you can use it as a guest room, home gym and for many other purposes. Pretty clever, right?

Grow your own

Many of us get a lot of enjoyment out of spending time in the garden, but your garden has the potential to give you much more than pleasure and satisfaction on a sunny day. Have you ever thought of turning your hand to growing your own fruit or vegetables? It’s relatively easy to get started, and all you need is a sunny patch, some compost and a couple of minutes per day to tend to your produce. 

It’s a good idea to read some guides for beginners online, as this will help you choose vegetables that are easy to grow and give you basic instructions to help you get the best results. If you’re not blessed with warm weather all-year-round, it’s worth looking into options like elite greenhouses, so that you can provide warmth and shelter when temperatures drop. You don’t have to have a huge garden to fit a greenhouse in, as you can buy compact versions for smaller spaces. It’s wise to start with vegetables like radishes, marrows, green beans, salad greens, and onions and if you succeed you can go further.

Surviving the seasons

We tend to favor spending time outdoors when it’s hot and sunny, but with a few simple additions and tweaks, it is possible to enjoy the garden all year-round.  When the sunlight fades, outdoor lighting enables you to spend longer outdoors, and there are loads of different options to choose from. You can go for  simple, cute lanterns hung from the fencing, install up lighters in flower beds or buy free-standing outdoor lamps for a patio. 

There you have it! A few tips that might help you achieve the garden of your dreams this season. If you happen to have other tips for me, don't forget to leave them in the comment section. Take care and enjoy your garden!
