3 Garden Projects That’ll Help You Deal With Boredom

3 Garden Projects That’ll Help You Deal With Boredom
***Collaborative post***

There are few things in life as annoying as being bored. When you’ve got nothing to do, then you feel like you’re just wasting the hours in a day. Boredom comes and goes at all times, but most of you are probably feeling more bored than ever right now. With strict isolation orders in place across the country, many of you are stuck at home with very little to do. 

If you have a garden, then you’re in luck!

A garden offers so many time-consuming opportunities that will keep boredom at bay. Here are a few project ideas you can start whenever you like: 

Growing the perfect lawn

This is a great project to start – particularly if your lawn is looking rough right now. We had a lot of bad weather for a few weeks, which means most people ended up with a waterlogged lawn that couldn’t be cut. Not only that, but the winter months also took their toll on your grass. Not, it’s probably a far cry from the green lusciousness that you hoped for. 


Well, now’s the time to put things right as you attempt to grow the perfect lawn. Take a look at your current garden and figure out what might be wrong with your lawn. Is it overwatered and underfed? Is it too dry? There are loads of ways to revive a dying lawn, and you can spend your time doing this.

Planting a hedge

Hedges make great additions to anyone’s garden. The great thing is, you can have a hedge in your front garden or one in the back. Think of them as tall bushes that add some extra privacy and class to your garden area. 

Now’s the time to plant a hedge if you don’t already have one. You’ve got so many different hedges to plant, and hedgeplants-heijnen can show you some of the best options. The key is to ensure your hedges grow nice and tall and remain neat and tidy. If you already have hedges in your garden, then use this time to tend to them. Perhaps you could even look at some awesome hedge cutting designs to try out? 

Creating a flowerbed

For me, adding a flowerbed to your garden is a great way to make it more bright and peaceful. The addition of colours can liven up the place, and the scents from the flowers really boost your mood. Plus, it’s an enjoyable task going outside and preparing a flowerbed then planting all your flowers and watching them blossom!

The great thing is, you have to go out pretty much every day to spend time looking at the flowers and ensuring they’re on the right path. So, boredom is a thing of the past. 

Take full advantage of your garden if you’re struggling to think of ways to pass the time. When you start making an effort, you suddenly realise how much work goes into looking after your garden spaces. Loads of projects present themselves to you, but these three are great places to start.

A Garden In Which Play Never Ends

A Garden In Which Play Never Ends

A few ideas to help keep active outside

Having a large family of young children means the household will always be somewhat noisy. So many people eating at tables and in bedrooms, typing on computers and laptops and going in and out of the house. You need something to keep them occupied and fighting off the boredom by themselves. When kids are bored they get restless, they get agitated. A bunch of frustrated children in confined quarters is never a good thing. Either they’ll end up annoying you, looking for something to do or they’ll somehow end up arguing with each other. A home that doesn’t support an active lifestyle is bound to have these kinds of issues. It’s only natural for growing kids to want to expand their energy no matter if it’s hot or cold, wet or dry outside. The garden comes to the rescue many times, but the fall seasons can make it less than desirable. But here’s how you can keep it active.

All-weather get together

The main goal of a garden that will keep the kids occupied, is flexibility. No matter what the season is your garden should still have something that makes it fun. When it’s hot, late nights out in the garden will become more and more frequent. And, when it’s the fall camping outside with a fire is going to be just as fun for the kids. So, buy an all-weather garden tent that is for families. Designed to be strong and spacious, these kinds of tents vary in their shapes. Some offer more room than others, so it depends on what you require for the size of your family. When the summer comes around they can use the tent as an obstacle to hide in while playing with water guns. Yet when the winter comes, they can use it as cover for a snowball fight.

Less work more play

You have enough on your plate you don’t need more garden chores to be added onto your schedule. Mowing the lawn and keeping it in good condition so the kids can play their sports on it takes a consistent effort. Is the pay off really worth it in the end? Instead you can buy LazyLawn which is an artificial lawn that can be easily fitted to your garden. It’s going to be available to use and play on all year round no matter what season, weather or temperature it is. The highly trained installers know how to fit both a commercial or domestic applications so they already have plenty of experience underneath their belt.

Giant Jenga

A classic game played indoors, now can be made bigger and played outdoors. Giant Jenga blocks can be placed on top of each other and then, let the games begin. The kids can play this outdoors as the pieces are heavy enough to not be blown around by a gentle wind. It’s all about patience and a steady hand in this game.

Getting the kids active is no problem. But, getting them active day after day becomes a challenge. They will get bored before you do so try to make your garden fun all year round. Whether it’s a tent or artificial grass so they can play their sports, change your garden to fit all the seasons.
