Garden Improvements You Should be Making Today

The garden has to rank among the most important part of any property. It is easy to get carried away with focusing on the best parts of the home and trying to boost the interior in order to add value or create better living conditions. But a lot of people these days seem to overlook the important role the garden plays in the makeup of any home and the way in which it is perceived.

You should always be looking at things you can do to improve the garden and make the property better as a result. There are a lot of things that can be done in order to improve the way your garden looks, as well as how functional it is. These are some of the best things you can do in order to improve your garden for the better and make the most of the space you have to work within.

Lawn Maintenance

It is so important, when you have a back garden, to make sure you are looking after the grass. Proper lawn maintenance is something you have to make sure you are focused on as much as possible, and there are a number of ways of achieving this. Cutting the grass and using lawn feed is one of the best things you can do, but you might also like to consider getting an artificial lawn because this is going to improve how efficient the lawn is, as well as making it easier to maintain.


Extending the home is one of the most impressive ways of doing things, and this is something that you need to make sure you are focused on when it comes to improving the home and adding value. Well, one of the things to consider is the fact that the garden provides ample opportunity for extending the home. There are a lot of different extension options you might consider, like a conservatory, or a garage conversion. And this is definitely going to increase the value of the home and improve the aesthetics of the garden moving forward.

Grow Your Own

Growing your own fruit and vegetables is a great way of maximising your garden as much as possible. This is something you need to make sure you do to utilise the garden and what it has to offer. There are so many great fruits and vegetables that you can grow, and creating a miniature allotment, or installing an aluminium greenhouse, is one of the best ideas for the future. This is something that can provide you with a lot of delicious organic food that doesn’t cost you much.

Water Feature

There are so many excellent ways of improving the garden, but a water feature is probably one of the best ways of achieving this. There are a lot of different options to consider when it comes to improving the garden and using a water feature to do this. Whether it is a fountain, a pond, or even a swimming pool, it is important that you make sure you choose correctly, and this is something that you have to make sure you think carefully about.

Make it More Sociable

The best way of making sure you improve your garden is to make it more sociable. This is something you have to ensure you do in order to make certain you have a garden that contains some wow factor. This is something you can achieve by adding in some seating areas, building a patio, and developing an area where you can host parties and hang out with your friends.


No proper garden would be complete without lots of colourful and diverse flowers. There are plenty of places to plant flowers in order to give them the best visual position in the garden. Creating a flower garden would be a plus, and flower beds are an absolute must for those looking to get more flowers into their garden. Try to mix up the different flowers you have, and go for a mixture of colours as much as you possibly can. Make sure you do as much as you can to make your garden better.

There are so many changes you can make to enhance the practicality and functionality of the garden, as well as making it look great as well. The garden can have a major impact on the rest of the home, and this is something that you need to focus on as much as possible. There are a lot of changes you can make that are going to help you improve the way your garden comes across, and these are some of the most important that you should consider.

Project garden makeover

Project garden makeover


I now have another week off work due to still having holiday to use up so I thought I would set myself a little challenge, my last holiday off work was used to decorate the hall, stairs, landing and lounge so this time round I thought I would have a project garden makeover.

I want to get the gardens free from weeds and looking a bit more lively. I love spending time in our gardens when I get time, I am the only one with green fingers in our house, Ian wouldn’t know a weed from a plant….Or so he says anyway.

I had our gardens looking rather nice early last summer, I then had my car accident back last June leaving me in a wheelchair and with nerve damage, since then they have been very neglected and they are now looking rather horrible.

I am now back on my feet after having intense physio and its all systems go for project garden makeover, I’m feeling rather excited to be able to have the time to get them looking alive and in some sort of order again. I am ready to tackle those horrid weeds in the garden.


My poor garden needs

Clearing from clutter that has accumulated over the past few months.

Bushes need trimming down.

A good jet wash.

Freeing from weeds.

The pots need re-potting.

The ornaments are also in need of a good clean.


Fence panels & decking needs painting/staining.

Hopefully the weather will be nice enough for me to get out there and get started. I have been wanting to get outside and tidy up for months now but been unable to do so.

I am looking forward to planting in some new plants once the gardens are ready to do so. I love nice colorful gardens I think they look beautiful and cheery. I am looking to create a nice peaceful, colorful garden with a nice water feature, somewhere we can sit quietly with a nice cold drink a nice magazine and just enjoy our nice colorful garden.

Now time to dig out my gardening gloves, pray for nice dry weather and get stuck in to this new project I have set myself.
