Getting Your Garden Ready for Summer 2018

Is there anything better than enjoying a barbecue with friends during the summer months? Relaxing in the garden with a cocktail while the sun shines down and music plays in the background; what could be better?

This is only going to be achievable if your garden space allows it, of course. If your garden is currently littered with weeds, and a dull and dreary place to be in, you are not going to want to entertain anyone. This is why you need to get your garden summer ready before it is too late and you need to wait until next year. Here are some great tips to follow…

Bring comfort outside of your home – One of the best ways to make sure your garden is ready for entertaining guests is to make it a comfortable space. You can do this by investing in a nice rug and a few scatter cushions. Don’t spend too much money on these items, though, as they are unlikely to last for years and years to come.

Invest in some decking – If you do not have any decking in your garden, now is a good time to invest in a deck so you can create a patio area for you and your guests. There are numerous suppliers of maintenance free composite decking and eco friendly composite wood products, so that you can build your own decking area to save money. Plus, by going down the maintenance free route, you won’t have to worry about any excessive upkeep.

Consider your lighting options – If you want to create an inviting area, you need to carefully consider your lighting options. Solar panel lights provide you with an eco-friendly way of lighting your garden space once the sun goes down. Plus, they look great too!

Create a herb wall near your barbeque – Creating a herb wall close to your barbeque is a good idea for a number of reasons. Firstly, it will make your food taste a lot nicer. After all, there is nothing better than homegrown herbs and produce. Secondly, it will make life a lot easier for you, as your herbs will be easy to access while you are cooking. And finally, you will generate delicious aromas! Oh, and let’s not forget that herbs can be used in cocktails too!

Plant night-scented flowers – If your events tend to go on until the evening, it is a good idea to plant some night-scented flowers. This includes the likes of Jasmine, Honeysuckle, and Phlox.

Keep things low maintenance – Last but not least, it is important to achieve a low maintenance garden for summer 2018. You want to spend your time relaxing; not picking out weeds, trimming the grass, and carrying out all of the other activities that are required to keep your garden looking pristine.

If you follow the tips that have been provided above, you can make sure your garden is ready for the summer months. Enjoy a relaxing time with friends and family in your inviting and exciting garden space.
