Transforming your outdoor space into a beautiful and inviting sanctuary doesn’t need to be a hassle. With a few simple changes, you can create a well-designed garden that will improve the curb appeal of your home, making it more attractive and increasing its value.
1) Say YES to colour
For an instant burst of energy, painting a fence or wall is not only a budget-friendly fix but gives maximum payoff. A fresh pastel or bright shade like Pantone's Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, can freshen up your garden just in time for BBQ season.
2) Let there be light
Ensure the fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets with some solar lights. Only needing 6-8 hours of daylight to charge fully, they can illuminate your garden and eliminate the need for an extension cable. They are also an eco-friendly option that can also be easily moved for maximum options - win:win.
3) Shaken not stirred
Is your shed being used to its full potential or just a dumping ground? Utilise your shed over the summer by making it a multi-functional space, creating the perfect place to prepare drinks for your garden parties. Enhance the space with hanging fragrant flowers or fresh herbs like mint - so it’s always on hand for cocktail hour.
4) More is more
Bedding plants add joy to your garden quickly and inexpensively. Go for colourful flowers and foliage to brighten up your garden, adding visual interest. Do a little research and choose plants that thrive in your climate and require minimal maintenance, then get stuck in adding them to borders, containers or pots.
5) Get creative
With a little imagination, you can create truly unique and functional features from what you find. Many recycled materials look better than new ones, particularly around traditional buildings, and you can pick up a bargain. Check eBay, Gumtree and Freecycle for some fun projects.
