A 2020 survey published by Statista found that the majority of Brits don’t enjoy gardening – and the pressure of giving your garden a new lease of life likely contributes to this.
But we’re here to tell you that making your garden more appealing isn’t a complicated task. In this article, we’ll share some of the quick and easy ways you can improve your garden.
Refurbish your fence
The garden fence is on one of the most important elements of the garden. Make sure you regularly clean your fence, either with a pressure washer or soapy water and a brush.
You should also carry out some basic repairs every so often, such as reattaching boards using a nail gun and adding fresh coats of varnish.
Take care of your lawn
A lush, green lawn makes a garden look twice as good as one that’s overgrown, so make sure you stay on top of trimming the grass in your garden.
You’ll need to build a regular habit of mowing and pruning away any dandelions that might compete with the grass. Remember to water your lawn during summer to stop it from drying up, as well as rake away dead growth during autumn to make it easier to come back to life.
Clean your patio
Cleaning your patio might feel like a hassle. But it can be a simple task if you follow the right steps.
- First, clear your patio by removing any loose debris with a brush and moving your patio furniture. This will give you better access for cleaning.
- Next, use a stiff brush and cleaning solution to scrub the tiles of your patio clean. Alternatively, you can use a pressure washer to blast away the cleaning solution after letting it sit for a brief period.
- Rinse your patio thoroughly to wash away any remaining cleaning solution and dirt, then let it dry. This might take several hours but could vary depending on the weather.
- Finally, repeat this process as many times as you need in order to get your patio tiles looking nice and clean.
Get rid of old plants
If you have any tired-looking plants in your garden that just aren’t pulling their weight anymore, it might be time to get rid of them. Whether you’ve had them for a long time or spent a lot of money on them, there’s much to gain by being ruthless.
After you’ve replaced them with fresh and attractive plants, you’ll have easily made a big improvement to your garden.
Improving your garden doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s best to start with small and easy wins that quickly make your garden look more appealing – and give you the momentum to tackle larger projects later down the line.
