With the hot weather in full swing, now is the perfect time to transform your garden. Read on to discover some seasonal landscaping tips to give your outdoors some extra TLC.
Fix up your patio or deck
Patios and decks are perfect for socialising in the sun, alone or with guests. Summer is the ideal season to give yours a revamp – luckily, patio furnishings come in many styles and materials, so it’s easy to customise them for your needs. Don’t forget to think about how much sun or wind will hit the area during certain times of the day; this will help you decide what materials work best for your project.
Edge your yard and flower beds
A simple idea to give your garden a fresh look is to make sure you’re regularly edging your grass and flower beds. Why not use an edger or weed eater to create crisp lines to give your yard a whole new identity?
Clear your bed
Winter can wreak havoc on your garden beds, so cleaning up should be a top priority when it comes to landscaping this summer. You can pull weeds, get rid of garbage, and clear out any dead plants. Even if you don’t plant anything new, the cleaned up beds will look so much better.
Add fresh mulch
Your outdoors area could definitely do with fresh mulch in your flower beds, planting areas and tree rings. This is because mulch is something that dries out, decomposes, and is carried away throughout the year by wind, water, and wildlife. Therefore, you should spread fresh mulch every year to ensure soil is kept cool and moist, weeds are kept at bay and your garden is flourishing.
Plant more flowers
Ensure your garden is in full bloom this summer by planting some colourful flowers. From delicate roses to vibrant hydrangea, the choices are limitless – an abundance of floral charm is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Curbing is a simple form of hardscaping you can add to your garden. Adding boulders, rocks, or pavers around your flower beds or walkways creates a defined space and adds an element of depth to the overall look.
Incorporate a water feature
Water features will give your outdoor spaces an elegant touch. From a simple bird bath to a flowing stream with a waterfall, flowing water will provide a flowing, relaxing vibe.
