Summer. The favorite season for most. You want to enjoy it. Most do by hitting the beach, bike rides, outdoor pools, and relaxing in their garden. The problem with the garden is it needs to look good for you to enjoy it properly. It means putting in the work. A lot of people love getting out of their home and making the garden a place for ultimate relaxation. Some like the relaxation part and hate the work that has to go into it. Whatever the case, these tips can help you get your garden in summer shape, whether you’re a practiced hand or just starting.
Go For A Feature Point
If your garden can handle it, a feature point can make it look a little bigger, and give it something unique over the others in the neighborhood. Your feature depends on your personality and what you enjoy. A statue or sculpture can be a great way to pull attention. As could a pond, mainly because it doesn’t take up much upward space. If you’re lucky enough to own quite a bit of land, you can think about a larger body of water like a lake. Installing one can mean you have less grass and garden to maintain. Just remember your lake aerators to ensure clean and healthy water. If you go down the water route, you could consider fish too. They come in all shapes and sizes, adding another dimension to your feature point.
Keep It Green
It isn’t easy. The sun can dry a garden out in days, and if all of your plants bloom at the same time, there’s not going to be much greenery in your garden. There are ways to defeat this. You can buy your trees and plants to stagger their blooming times. It means all over summer, and indeed the year there’s green in your garden. You can do with flowers too. Different types of plants naturally bloom at different times. You can use this to spread different colors around the garden. Go for evergreen plants if you want minimal work. They should stay green all year round with near no need to report. You can help the grass along with seed and food too.
Get Your Relaxation Areas Right
It’s important because it depends on what kinds of relaxation you want in your garden. You might have a pool, which means your chill-out area needs to have proper drainage. Or you may wish to a perfect patch of grass to hang a hammock over. If you frequently invite friends over for garden parties and BB Q’s, then you’ll devote less space to your loungers and have more taken up by chairs and tables. Don’t be lured into buying the garden furniture that’s on offer. Instead, make sure you get what’s right for the kind of relaxation you need. The weather is a huge factor too. If you get the occasional summer shower, there’s no point getting furniture which needs to be brought inside, especially if you haven’t got the space.
