8 March 2024 | General, Home Decor

You might have already made a start on updating areas of your home at the beginning of the year – in fact, we’ve already seen some bold and exciting interior trends for 2024.

However, as we head into spring, it’s likely that you’re planning for the warmer days that are to come.

Now is the perfect time to start thinking about how to improve your back garden. Here are some ideas to inspire you.

Why reimagine the garden?

Revamping your garden can help you to make the most of the space.

It might be that you’ve not really had a chance to get out there in recent years, in which case a refresh could tempt you to spend more time in your garden.

Or it could be that it’s time to add something new so that you can see the garden in a new light.

Plus, should you be looking to sell at some point, it could potentially boost the appeal of your property and even add value.

Buyers are increasingly adding gardens to their list of must-haves, so making the space attractive could get you that sale.

Here are some ways to upgrade your garden:

  • Use decorative lighting: Illuminate your garden with well-placed outdoor lighting. Solar lights are ideal for when the sun sets on your summer barbecue, while accent lighting for features like trees is pretty, yet practical.
  • Create a seating area: Garden furniture is a real investment. Sofas, tables and a parasol are perfect. You can lounge in your garden and settle into some comfy outdoor cushions as you while away the warmer days.
  • Plant some trees: Trees are a lovely addition to an outdoor area. They can enhance your garden, create shade and offer some privacy. Take the time to research the best type for the soil in your garden and plan out where you want to place it.
  • Do some landscaping and design: If you want to make a real investment, it’s worth looking for expert help. Call in a landscape gardener who can update the setup by adding flower beds, pathways, and borders.
  • Update your fencing: Do you need new fences? Maybe it’s time to give the existing ones a fresh lick of paint? As well as making the space look tidy and well-defined, good-quality fences add set borders that are aesthetically pleasing.
  • Patio or decking?: A patio or decking creates a dedicated space where you might want to entertain guests or enjoy a quiet evening. Choosing between the two will involve working out what suits the space best and also what you personally prefer. Whichever you choose, make sure that it’s well-maintained. These can be the ideal space for your outdoor furniture.
  • Plant some shrubs: If you’re green-fingered, why not try planting some shrubs? These can be a lovely addition and they can be a great way to invest time into your garden.
