5 Garden Ideas for a Fresh New Look
A Fresh Trim
One of the simplest garden ideas to give your garden a new appearance is to trim and shape lawns and other areas. Changing regular rectangular lawns and bedding areas to have different curves and angles will add character and completely transform the look of your garden. Mark out your desired new garden layout with string before using a straight edge to cut out the different sections. Effective, fast and free!
You’ve likely seen newly built houses, each one an exact recreation of its neighbours, slightly boring right? Fortunately nature is extremely random and as such makes it beautifully easy to create a unique outdoor space through the addition of plants and flowers. Perennials are a great option and can be split up to be spread around different flowerbeds and also save cost! Geums, Hardy Geraniums & Astrantia can be removed from their pots and pulled into sections before being planted. As they grow they can also be dug up and split once again.
Let There Be Light
Garden lighting can be appreciated all year round. It’s great to have a well-lit area to enjoy during the summer months but even in the cold of winter, they add a sparkle to your garden and keep it looking beautiful. Outdoor lighting comes in various different sizes and styles; you really are spoilt for choice. Stake lights can be placed around a lawn or patio perimeter to illuminate a seating area. Alternatively, you might hang fairy lights along the top of a fence. Fairy lights offer a good amount of light and cover a larger area. For added effect they can also be placed around trees, bushes and flower beds to light up an entire garden!
Make a Path
Adding a path to your garden can break up an area of lawn and turn a plain outdoor space into a unique, stylish outer living area. Pathways can lead to different areas of your garden rather than unnecessarily causing damage to your lawn. The sides can be marked out with different types of rocks whilst the path itself can be created with gravel, slate or even bark depending on your personal preference. The beauty of adding a path is that it provides a stylish feature whilst also offering functional benefit too.
The Finishing Touch
A stand out feature can truly make a garden. People often neglect their garden, treating it as an afterthought but it can become an enjoyable place to be just as your homes’ interior is. A water feature, pond or garden seating area can transform a garden into an extension of your interior and make it a usable and comfortable place that you can enjoy during good weather.
