With spring only a few months away, now is the time to start planning the changes you are going to be making in your garden next year. Whether you’re keen to spice up your outdoor seating area, or want to add a summerhouse, there are plenty of options and you can have everything clearly planned out. This means when the time comes, you’ll be 100% prepared for the work ahead, and it means the sooner the work is complete, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy your garden with family and loved ones.
Be ready for barbecue season
Spring is often the start of barbecue season in the UK, and that means you need to have all of your equipment at the ready so you can host alfresco dinners as soon as the weather warms up. With a great barbecue and an outdoor seating area where people can relax and enjoy their meal, you can really make the most of your garden during summertime. Of course, even in spring an summer, the weather in the UK can be unpredictable, so you should consider a weather protector like an awning or porch. With an awning, you can manually open the awning to cover the seating area to prevent a shower from ruining your barbecue, whilst outdoor heaters can take away the bite of the wind. There are plenty of awning special offers this time of the year, especially when the January sales start, so get searching for one today if you have no solution to combat cold or wet weather.
Think about your borders
Garden borders or boundaries are incredibly important. With the right fence you can add style to your garden as well as privacy and security, so right now is a good time of year to think about your border. It’s not just fences though, you may have flowerbed borders or trees and mature shrubs, and you can create brand new areas, so nothing is off limits. It’s a new year, and that really can mean a new garden throughout.
Let’s talk furniture
Garden furniture can help you enjoy your garden, relax, unwind and soak up the sun, and even though the weather right now is freezing, it’s a good time to think about the type of furniture you will need in your garden during spring and summer. Do you have enough seats and tables, or are you looking to add a comfy outdoor sofa to your garden? There are lots of options here, and you only need to head to your local garden store to get some ideas and a feel for the type of furniture that is right for you.
Whether you’re looking to make minor tweaks or major changes to your garden, there are so many different aspects to consider, such as comfort, entertainment, relaxation, security and style. With a good detailed plan, you will give yourself enough time to make the changes so you can enjoy your outdoor space when spring is here.
