Is your Garden looking like its best days are way behind it? Or are you simply tired of staring at the same old layout time and time again? If you are looking to add that missing spark to your garden, then you’ve come to right place for answers as we’ll be unraveling how to reinvent your yard. Without further ado, here are five tips on how to give your garden a new look:
1) Use screening to cover up not-too pleasant areas
The compost heap, the wheelie bin and other such like areas are normally hard to get tidy no matter what you do but you can remedy that by tucking these places away from view via screening. You could go for a bamboo screen for that contemporary touch, willow for its rustic appeal or tall grasses for a natural and beautiful cover-up with little maintenance.
2) Adopt chests to avoid cluttering
Children’s tricycles, lounger cushions, bucket barbecues among other garden paraphernalia can make your garden look old and disorganized so it’s best you opt for a storage solution that also blends in as part of the decorative architecture. In that regard, garden chests spring to mind as they help keep the clutter away for as little space as possible and without getting in the way of beautiful garden scenery. An oak finished chest comes off as sleek and stylish with cream colored finishes also excellent options for the subtle vibrancy they bring to the table.
3) Edging goes a long way
Manicuring your lawn to get nice lines and corners can be hard to keep up with and that’s why edging proves ideal. Aside from gorgeously demarcating boundaries, the material used- stone, metal or wood varieties- can also better the aesthetics of the garden. It is advisable that the edging implored contrasts the domineering green of the plants. If your lawn looks unappealing or is non-existent, an artificial turf comes in handy providing consistently excellent detailing for a fraction of the work needed to grow a natural lawn.
4) A greenhouse can also inject a new lease of life
5) Get a deep clean done
Dirt and algae tend to cling to the surfaces of paved sections, decking areas, and patios with time giving it a dirty, aging look. You can get around this by hiring a pressure washer which delivers great results easily and quickly. For your furniture, a little elbow grease can give them a new sparkling look but if they are beyond salvaging, it might be time to head to the store for some new ones. Alternatively, you could just sand to remove the worn out layer of paint and get a new endearing coat.
Lastly, be sure to throw in some nicely patterned lighting to liven up the night time. Spotlighting is especially lovely as it provides a spontaneous glamorous ambiance which is important if you regularly host events in your yard.
