If your rundown garden has seen better days then stop it from feeling like it’s going to waste. It’s up to you to start making some changes to it. However, if you need some help, this post will help.
A rundown garden can be depressing and waste space that can be colourful, vibrant and usable. Rather than letting a rundown garden remain your reality, it’s time to make some changes to up-grade and secure your little piece of paradise.
Remove Dead and Out of Place Plants, Flowers and Trees
First of all, cut back the things that shouldn’t really be there. That means removing any dead and out of place plants, flowers and trees. If they’re dead, there’s no bringing them back. And if they don’t belong in the garden and they’re just taking up space, it makes sense to remove them.
Secure the Perimeter
Take steps to secure the perimeter of the garden. This is important from a security point of view, but it’ll also impact the style and aesthetic of the garden. Good fence palings will clearly define the limits and shape of your garden, so be sure to invest in some as soon as you can.
Define the Edges of Your Lawn
As well as defining the edges of your garden and its limits, you should also look to define the edges of the lawn itself. This is important because you want the lawn to be sharp and landscaped at the edges. It makes a rundown garden look much neater and tidier when you make this kind of change. It’s amazing how much of a difference this kind of change can make.
Make Room for a New Flower Bed
An important part of any garden are the flowers. They bring color, life and vibrancy to the space and make it more appealing from a visual point of view. That’s got to be a good thing and something that you should look to get right at the soonest opportunity. A new flower bed is the ideal starting place for this. Find a suitable space for it in your garden.
Create a Social Dining Space
Finally, you should think about adding a social dining space to your garden. This is important because it allows you to make the most of the outdoor space. It also adds a usable functionality to the space that was more than likely missing in the rundown garden before. That’s got to be a good thing. It’ll allow you to eat together and host dinner parties with friends when the weather is appropriate.
Once you’ve taken all the steps we’ve discussed here, you’ll have yourself a garden that’s suitable for you and your family to use throughout the summer months and throughout the year even. None of the steps are too complicated but they’ll take your rundown garden from being a place to avoid to being a place in which you’ll enjoy spending time together.
