Top Tips for the Perfect Garden

Everybody wants to have a garden that looks great, that is practical and that is somewhere where you can spend time relaxing whenever the weather lets us!

Of course everybody looks for something different in their garden, some people want lots of lawn, some people want lots of plants and flowers, some want to grow vegetables and some want an area where they can sit and eat or drink with family and friends.

The size of your garden will of course influence what you are able to do with your garden, for example a very small garden will not allow you to grow vegetables as well as have a space for table and chairs.

So maybe you haven’t got a clue what to do with your garden, or maybe you just need a little help, well here are a few suggestions that we hope will help you get your perfect garden:

Making a plan is very important if you want to make the most of your garden space, by designing a simple plan you know exactly what can fit where, decide what will look best where and overall make the whole process easier.

Deciding exactly what you want to do in your garden is important, do you want space for children to play in? 
Do you want a space where you can eat and drink outside? Do you want a haven of flowers and plants?

Having a large open space can sometimes look plain, the trick is to break up these open spaces using colourful flowerbeds, this will make your garden interesting and attractive.

Planting a variety of plants and flowers will make things interesting; if you have all of the same colour or all of the same texture it can get boring, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Little touches of garden art will make your garden unique and unusual, whether you choose a decorative bird house, a sculpture or any other decorative pieces; this is a great way of making your garden different.

Garden lights can make your garden a picturesque place both day and night, they not only do that but also mean that you are able to spend time there no matter whether it’s day or night. There are so many different style of garden lighting that these can also act as decorative feature.

Picking plants that suit your climate will make your job easier and require less work, we don’t mean you need to pick all your plants like this, but some would helpful!

Finally, we say don’t overdo it on any one thing, if there are too many plants there will be no where to sit, if the seating area is too large there won’t be enough plants; it’s all about getting the right balance!

  1. Do you have a butterfly garden? My friend does and I love them so much. Maybe when I have the money I'll do that as well.
