All the ways to bring your garden to life without breaking the bank…

Transforming your garden space can be an exciting project but, more often than not, it comes with a hefty price tag. However this doesn’t need to be the case! In fact, most people don’t know the numerous ways you can take your outdoor space to the next level while keeping costs down.

With a little creativity and budget-friendly ideas, you can give your garden the makeover it truly deserves for this upcoming Spring. So whether you’re starting from scratch or just need to spruce the place up a bit – we’ve got a little something for everyone…

Painting The Fences

While it’s not usually the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about sprucing up your outdoor space, painting your fences not only adds a unique touch but it also creates a great backdrop to stand your plants against.

If you’re on the lookout for an idea that will give an instant impact, then this one’s for you. If you want a more dramatic effect, we’d recommend opting for black and if you want something with a more bright and airy feel, choose an off-white colour to create the illusion of a larger garden. Be sure to book a professional handyman to get the job done as painting fences is a tricky task that requires a steady hand! 

Transform Your Space with Lights

With the warmer temperatures drawing closer, you’ll still want to be making use of the outdoor space even when the sun goes down and for that you’ll need some garden lights to offer a beautiful ambience.

Solar garden lights are the most popular, however you can opt for battery-operated ones like strings and lanterns depending on your chosen style. Installing outdoor lighting can be a complex ob to do alone, so be sure to book an electrician to help you fit them in safely and securely.

Taking Care of the Lawn

As part of your general garden maintenance, you’ll want to water and mow the lawn as regularly as possible. The grass is usually the first part of your outdoor space that people notice so, depending on the season, a regular tidy up is a must!

As well as improving the look of your overall garden, regularly mowing the lawn helps to eliminate any unwanted weeds and encourages a much denser turf.

Removing Weeds

This is a significant step when it comes to the overall well-being of your garden (one that is often overlooked!).

Pulling out weeds that are growing in flower beds is a necessary task for many reasons. For a start, weeds block sunlight and steal water from crops and plants so it can end up ruining your efforts of growing pretty flowers or delicious vegetables.

They also cause a major distraction from your landscape and begin to destroy any concrete if they are left untouched for too long. Without regular weeding, your beautiful outdoor space can become a jungle of weeds very quickly!

Hedge Trimming and Pruning

Not only does maintaining your hedge allow for a very clean garden aesthetic, it also prevents dead or dying branches from harming any neighbouring plants and people.

It’s certainly a cheap and cheerful way to make a great impact, plus enable more flowers to blossom within it.

Pruning focuses on the overall health of the hedge (removal of dying branches), while trimming is all about keeping it in tidy shape and getting rid of any overgrown parts. This is why trimming is just as important as pruning when it comes to achieving a beautiful outdoor space.

Another benefit of hedge maintenance is that it also brings in more sun exposure when it’s trimmed down so you can make more use of that glorious light!
