Having a private garden space is showing to be important during this year’s pandemic. It helps to get outside without needing to socially distance from others. And, right now there is no better opportunity to spend time improving your personal life and the space around you. Improving your garden space during this summer of lockdown will invite you to spend more time inside your home whilst following the government guidelines. This is the perfect opportunity to appreciate your garden and utilise the extra space for relaxing, dining and socialising with loved ones.
1 – Growing Fresh Produce
There is no better gardening accomplishment than when your tomatoes have fully grown and are ready to eat. Growing fresh produce is not only sustainable but it can reduce your weekly shopping costs. Flora and Fauna are the most naturally beautiful things we see and eat. Flowers in particular are used as an ornamental piece for living rooms but imagine your whole garden being filled with a beautiful array of different colors. Appeasing the eye and uplifting for the soul. Growing vegetables and flowers together in the same garden beds can boost your yield and keep your crops healthy.
2 – Adding A Water Feature
One of the more expensive gardens but most appealing additions are water features. A beautiful cascading feature is popular and works with any garden. They offer multi-layered aesthetics that make for a fantastic centerpiece. Some choose to connect cascading features and small ponds together. Adding a water feature to an outside pond is a great way to accentuate your garden relaxation. Ponds can attract beautiful wildlife and you could even choose to add small fish. Should you have the space and spare cash, a swimming pool would be a great option to enjoy your summer in the garden especially for a large family.
3 – Laying a Patio
Laying a patio is one of the simplest and most effective changes you can make to your garden. Adding a patio can add depth and design to your garden. It is an opportunity to add pattern and architectural design to the garden. Patios are incredibly useful areas throughout the year with minimal maintenance required. They can create beautiful areas to socialise, dine and unwind. The patio with some great furniture is an ideal place to relax in the day or in the evening with a book, a drink or for hosting social events.
4 – Garden Furniture
This brings us to the final and most important reason to help enjoy your relaxation time. By now, you have put the time into your garden by planting, weeding and adding features, it’s time to sit back and view all your hard work. Choosing the right furniture for relaxing that is also aesthetically pleasing helps to create the vibe of the garden. For many, the most exciting thing about having a garden is that it gives them the ability to eat and drink outdoors. All you really need is a table and chairs but you can take it to the next level by adding lights, heaters, parasols and outdoor kitchens. For maximum relaxation you could even get a hammock or sun lounger.
