Before long it will be spring, and just when we’re getting used to it, it’ll suddenly be summer. With that said, it’s worth thinking about what you’re going to do in your garden to ensure it provides you with happiness and relaxation during the upcoming warmer months. If you’re looking for some inspiration, you’ll find the following ideas helpful.
It’s worth noting first and foremost that the most popular trend of 2019 is to create a garden that’s as low maintenance as possible. “But how?” I hear you ask. Well, you’ll have to opt for low-maintenance plants that don’t require much watering and perhaps invest in artificial grass that doesn’t need to be mowed. The idea is that you create a beautiful space you can enjoy, without having to put in much effort. After all, how can you sit back and enjoy your garden if you constantly have to maintain it.
A popular for many garden lovers this year is the creation of a secluded retreat. This is particularly prevalent amongst larger gardens and could be as simple as converting your summer house into an outdoor yoga room or a little library where you can go to read in the peace and quiet. Alternatively, you could install a separate seating area with a fire pit; great for teenagers to hang out with their friends on a Friday night. Fire pits are actually really trendy at the minute, and are ideal for the chillier nights when you want to get cosy.
If you’re looking to sell your home in 2019, you might want to consider the curb appeal of your front garden, rather than focussing solely on your back garden. Improving curb appeal can be as simple as planting some shrubbery or you might want to put in a little extra effort and install a new picket fence. A fence upgrade will probably be essential if you’ve been hit with some extreme weather conditions during winter.
