In the summer your garden is basically an extra room in your house, planning improvements and landscaping for your garden can be a great DIY project, and it can even add to the value of your home as well as your enjoyment of it.
Water features come in all shapes and sizes, from streams to fountains. When installing or designing a water feature you might need professional assistance but you can buy some fountains and other displays off the shelf.
If you don’t have a pathway, try one or if you already have one why don’t you give it a refresh? Think of the material you would like to use and what you would like around it.
Rockeries are usually in smaller gardens as they make great use of space and also provides a good focal point or back drop. When planning your rockery think of what materials you’d like to incorporate which will add texture.
A lot of people are concreting over their front gardens to turn them into driveways, but to stand out why don’t you try to include some landscaping and planting! There are loads of different things you can do to your front garden like adding flowerbeds, container planting, hedging or climbing plants.
Having raised flower beds will allow you to use and experiment with different materials which can give an interesting effect. They’re not just for vegetable gardens and can turn a mundane border and something that makes your garden really attractive. This idea is great if you have number of growing ideas!
