Having a well-kept outdoor space that you can relax in is so important especially for those summer months, no matter what size it is. If you look after your garden properly, it can become a great outdoor space that the whole family can enjoy, whether it’s breakfast outdoors, lounging in the sun, barbecues or just a safe place for your children to play. We’ve put together a number of essential steps to help you plan ahead and get your garden in tip-top condition as we approach the warmer months.
Taking Care Of Your LawnA lush green lawn can really make a garden, so make sure yours is up to scratch. Start by digging out any weeds, aiming to remove them from the root so that they don’t grow back. Next, aerate your lawn which will allow your grass to breath and help the water and nutrients to reach the root systems easily. Then rake the lawn in order to remove any unwanted debris that can block the sun from reaching the grass or water from reaching the roots. Use a fertiliser to make sure your grass is as green and healthy as possible. Finally, reseed any bare patches. To maintain your lawn make sure it is mowed and watered regularly.
Reviving Your GardenTo get rid of any dirt or moss build up around the garden, a quick and easy option is to use a jet wash. These can be hired if you don’t own one, and can be used on decking, flag stones and bricks – you’re sure to be amazed at the difference it makes. You should also be sure to pay attention to anything else that may be in need of a good clean after the winter conditions, such as the barbeque or benches and other garden furniture. If the fence or shed are looking a little tatty and run down, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders in bringing them back to life and making them look crisp again. Make sure to treat them afterwards to keep them looking fresh for longer.
Finishing TouchesStart by getting rid of anything that you know you don’t need or won’t use anymore to minimise clutter and to stop your garden looking untidy. The outdoor furniture you choose is likely to be the main focus point, as it will be central when entertaining guests or just dining al fresco as a family. Introducing hanging baskets or plant pots filled with summer plants will add colour and really brighten up your garden. Solar lights are perfect for creating the perfect atmosphere to relax in your garden when the sun starts to go down, whether you choose fairy lights or lanterns they’re sure to make all the difference. Placing tea lights into jam jars is a cheap but effective way of creating an ambience if you’re hosting a garden party or barbeque. It could also be a good idea to invest in a gazebo. This way even if the unpredictable British weather does happen to catch you out, you won’t have to take the party in doors.
As those dreadful, cold winter days are slowly starting to fade, people are gradually coming around to the idea of updating their current living spaces. With sales on industry-wide, people are flocking to see what bargains they can pick up whilst stocks last. However, a sofa is a big purchase and as exciting as it may be, it’s a decision that needs a great deal of thought – you don’t want to panic buy something only to be stuck with it for months to come! Therefore, here at Desser, we’ve put together a quick buying guide to ensure you find the perfect rattan range for you!
