How to Transform Your Garden!
Having your own beautiful garden comes with so many benefits, as well as making your home even more aesthetically pleasing. Your garden is a space for you to enjoy. There are lots of different ways to do this. That way, you can utilise the space you have to really make the most of it.
One of the most popular ways to make the most of your garden is to introduce a social area. This will provide you with the perfect area to relax, unwind, and enjoy your home with friends. Here is a selection of things to consider helping you transform your garden and create the perfect social space.
In order to have a suitable social area in your garden, you need to start by thinking about the right kind of surface choice. It won’t be practical to have seats and tables positioned on the grass, so you need to decide what materials you want to introduce to your garden for the surface of your social space. The most popular feature for gardens today is decking, as this provides the perfect surface for all furniture requirements, whilst also adding an aesthetically pleasing feature to the garden too.
You also find that decking is really good at adding character to your garden, as you can create a stunning focal point that will draw the eye whenever anyone enters your garden. Similarly, if you already have a patio or paved area, you could look at using this for your social area, as you already have the suitable floorspace to add some outdoor furniture and create the right kind of atmosphere for your friends and family to enjoy.
Dependant on your own personal preferences, the furniture pieces for your social garden space may vary. To start with, you want to have enough space to seat any potential guests, so you need to look at finding a good quality table and chairs set.
It’s really important to invest your money into good quality furniture pieces, as you want them to be durable and stand the weather conditions that they’ll face. You can then focus on additional furniture pieces such as benches that double up as storage boxes, sun loungers to make those summer days that little bit more relaxing and so on.
Lights and Heat
You want to be able to enjoy your garden throughout the year, even when the cooler evenings start to draw in, so it’s always beneficial to consider some heating for your social area. Garden heaters are ideal for adding some heat to the space and they’ll enable you to spend many more hours in the garden once the sun has gone down. You could also look at purchasing some cosy blankets to bring out whenever the temperature drops slightly, as this will help to add a cosy touch to the night, as well as warming you up properly and making the outdoor experience more bearable.
When it comes to the lighting, however, you need to focus on your whole garden. You don’t want your social area to be the only part of the garden that is lit up, as you won’t be able to see what’s going on in the rest of the garden space around you. Introduce plenty of pretty lighting around the garden, with additional lighting features around the decking and furnished area. This will help to add light to your garden and make it a much more welcoming, homely space.
When you’re enjoying the comfort of your own garden, you don’t want to have to worry about nosey neighbours peeking in or keeping an eye on what you’re doing. To give your garden a little privacy, you should look at introducing some fencing to keep your garden to itself.
It’s also going to benefit you to add a lock to your garden gate too, as when you introduce new furniture pieces to your garden you want to ensure that the pieces are secure and locked away in the garden where they belong.
It’s nice to be able to enjoy our outdoor spaces as much as we enjoy our indoor ones. I know that my family and I spend a lot of time outdoors!
