It’s summer, and there’s no better place to be than outside, having fun and spending time with your close family and friends. However, if your garden is an eyesore, you might be looking for ways to renovate and remodel your garden so that it is the place to be when people come over.
We’ve taken some time to create a brief guide full of tips to ensure your garden goes from boring to vibrant and flourishing. We encourage you to continue reading and start making some changes to your garden that will truly bring things to life in the way you want your garden to bloom.
Install Fireglass Stones
Do you have a fireplace of some sort in your backyard garden area? If so, have you ever thought of having fireglass stones that are tempered and installed? They can take a fireplace area that is usually dull to the next level and bring a level of excitement that wasn’t there previously.
You can choose any color of tempered glass, but ensure it fits within the rest of the aesthetic you’ve chosen for your garden area. Remember, this is a focal point you’re going to use. It will be someplace where you spend a lot of time with others. Therefore, you don’t want it to be something you don’t want to look at.
Change Out the Colors
Sometimes to, ensure your garden gets the refresh it needs means changing out the colors that are featured in your outdoor area. For example, most people provide some form of seating that offers various colored cushions for people to sit on.
But, after a while, these colors may become dull and shabby, which means it’s time to switch things out to provide a refresh. You’ll find that choosing some different vibrant colors and placing them in the garden will give you the chance you’re looking for, a complete change in the way your garden appears.
Revive the Plants
There is nothing worse than sitting in a garden where everything is dying or wilting. Your plants want to make a statement. The truth is that not everyone has a green thumb, and that’s okay.
If this is something you’ve found out about yourself, you should choose friends that don’t need much maintenance. For example, succulents don’t need to be watered every day and can be left for a prolonged period of time without much maintenance.
Of course, to understand what plants require the least amount of maintenance, you will need to do some research. But it’s worth taking the time to do so to ensure that you and your guests aren’t sitting in the midst of several dead plants.
Consider the Shade
Although being outside during the warmer months is what everyone wants, there is nothing worse than sitting in direct sunlight and being scorched. It’s best to think about shade options that you can use to really bring the garden area to life.
You might want to choose from several shade options, but we recommend you consider the area where the shade will be. For example, if your backyard is small, you don’t want to choose shading that will overpower the space or be too hard to get into the backyard.
If you’re unsure of what will work for your space, you can always call in the professionals to do so for you. They can come out to your home and assess the space while also providing some suggestions that you might find will work for you.
If you don’t want to commit to an entire shade that stands on its own, you can always opt for one that attaches to your home. If this is the one you choose, you will need to ensure that it’s installed correctly because you don’t need the shade falling on anyone when you’re trying to unroll it and put it back.
Refresh and Reset Your Garden
As the summer continues, the best thing to do is get ready to reset and refresh your garden. This can be done by changing up the colors that are present in your garden area and replacing them with cushions that offer pops of colors.
It also helps if you pay attention to the plants that are in your garden and provide them with some tender living care. No one wants to go outside and see a bunch of dead plants because that’s going to ruin the mood,
