If you have some green space outside your home, you’re a lucky person…
Thanks to a garden, you don’t need to struggle with staying inside during these hard lockdown times
Instead, you can get out of the house and have a picnic with your family. Or enjoy a dinner party there, or even work remotely on warm days. However, for all that to come true, your garden may need a makeover.
After all, it may be hard to enjoy the nice weather and fresh air when everything surrounding you is brick and concrete. Give your garden a second life – add a green vibe, install a grill, or add some atmospheric lighting.
Learn more about these ideas in the article below and enjoy the great outdoors.
Choose a Colour Scheme
If you want to make a big change in your garden, start with a colour scheme. Try painting the walls in your garden, or add new furniture – while this is a great way to make your garden stand out from the rest, it will not only be easier on your pocket but also help you get the look you want.
Instead of spending hours trying to figure out what colour to paint, you can try out different shades of green in your garden. Plant flowers and trees, too – the more vibrant and colourful your garden is, the more inviting it will be.
Add a Green Roof
If you have a flat roof, a green roof will impress any visitors who visit your garden. Once they look up, they will see a beautiful and eco-friendly rooftop. A green roof isn’t just something that looks nice on your building; it has many benefits for both humans, insects and plants alike.
To get started making this attractive new space, you need to choose the best flat roof material, typically EPDM rubber roofing. You’ll, of course, need to select the best plants as well.
Add a New Element
A new element in your garden can make it stand out from the crowd. Choose something useful for you, or create one just because you love it – a hammock, a swing, or even a treehouse. If you have some space outside that doesn’t seem to be used, you can add something fun to it.
The main thing is to use your creativity and, even if you’re not good at DIY projects, you can try out something new. You may need to draw inspiration from the internet (like Pinterest) – or simply ask around for some professional advice.
When summer is here, nothing beats having a nice dinner outside. After all, who doesn’t like spending an evening under the stars? While there are many ways to make your patio feel like a nightclub, adding extra lighting is one of the simplest ways. Whether you decide to hang some tea light holders over your BBQ grill or place some festive lanterns on your table – anything will do!
However, before you get overwhelmed by all the options, think about where exactly you would like to install lights.
In our opinion, there are two ways to go about it: hanging lights from trees or placing them on the ground. The former option looks very impressive and will add some atmosphere to your garden – however; it may require some special skills and tools that not everybody has. If you prefer placing lights on the ground, consider using solar-powered ones.
Remove Unused Elements
If you don’t use certain elements in your garden anymore (for example, an old shed), consider removing them altogether. Not only that, but this will make space for other things like an outdoor kitchen, but it will also help you re-think how you use your space.
If you consider this idea seriously enough, you may find yourself making some changes in the long run – after all, the more area you have outside the house, the more interesting things you can do there!
Add a Grill
Grilling has been popular for a long time – and there are many reasons why you should add one to your garden too. Not only that it will be easier to cook without having to go inside, but you’ll also be able to make delicious meals without having to spend a fortune on take-out or going out to restaurants.
However, when choosing a grill, try to consider the amount of space available in your garden and choose one accordingly. Just be careful not to do this…
For example, if you have a large garden, you can place a large charcoal grill there – however, if you don’t have a lot of space, you should purchase one that is portable and easy to store.
The garden is the perfect place to get away from it all. Whether you enjoy lounging in your hammock or playing with the kids, you can’t deny that this space has a lot of potential for creativity and relaxation.
