We all like our homes to be reflection of our personalities and be a place that feels calm and welcoming. However, one area of the home that is usually forgotten is the garden. It doesn’t matter how nice some homes are, very little care seems to have been taken to have the same level of opulence in the garden.
If this sounds like your garden then read on to discover how you can add a touch of luxury to your outdoor space.
A Floral Explosion!
There are many different types of flower available so it doesn’t matter how big or small your garden is, or whether you’ve got green fingers. You don’t even have to spend hours digging beds either because there are plenty of flower species that thrive in pots or hanging baskets.
Choose flower colours that complement the colour palette of your house and pick species that flower throughout the year so you’ll have a colourful display in your garden whatever the season.
Many people have ornaments, sculptures, and works of art in their house but they forget that their garden could also act as an outdoor gallery for their favourite pieces. Wooden or bronze garden sculptures make a great accessory even if you have limited space.
If you like to do a bit of DIY or recycling is important to you, you could also try your hand at creating your own sculpture to give you a really unique piece. Drift wood, household items, and even tyres can all be used to make a beautiful piece of outdoor art work.
When the summer comes it’s nice to move your dining room out of doors and entertain guests in a more relaxed setting. Upmarket garden furniture and rustic tableware will dazzle diners and really bring your garden to life.
Investing in a good quality barbecue will make sure your food tastes delicious and outdoors heaters and fairy lights will mean you can carry on the party even after the sun has gone down.
Make a Splash
For real luxury why not add a swimming pool so you can take a relaxing dip after a long day at work? If you haven’t got the room for a full sized pool then a hot tub will also make a classy addition to your decking or patio.
Treat yourself and your guests to an at home spa servicethat will make you the talk of the town. Just remember to have the number of a good hot tub repair man on standby to keep your hot tub in tip top condition.
Spruce up your Woodwork
Rundown sheds and tired looking fence panels are all too common even in the gardens of the nicest houses. Grab yourself a paintbrush and the wood stain colour of your choice and give your shed and fence a new lease of life.
Whatever you choose to do just remember to enjoy your garden!
