Making the most of your garden
Whatever its size or shape, your garden has the potential to become your own personal haven and the star attraction of your home. As the seasons change, so can the use and purpose of your outdoor space. From a venue for summer parties and gatherings, to providing picturesque aesthetics to compliment autumnal and winter evenings, a few well employed ideas can turn your garden into the master of all trades and a place for all seasons.
Starting with the basic essentials, no garden is complete without some attractive pieces of furniture. Exactly what furniture you want to purchase is dependent both on the size of your outdoor space and what it is most commonly used for. It may be the case that a couple of chairs will suffice in terms of making the most of your garden. On the other hand, families and those with larger gardens who frequently entertain may want to invest in a wider range of furniture and even an outdoor table.
For that added feeling of comfort, opt for some luxurious loungers, perfect for relaxing in the sun with a good book, a cold drink or simply the surrounding view. If eating outdoors is a regular occurrence, you may wish to look at some more rigid structures, such as director-style chairs, or even some benches to run alongside the table.
If space is at a premium, then it is advisable to purchase a few folding chairs that can be brought out when necessary; in addition, a table with collapsible sides can bring a practical, as well as decorative, element to your garden. When it comes to outdoor ornaments and decoration there are enough products available to suit all tastes and specifications.
Of course, whatever you opt for in terms of garden additions, it's important to get expert advice and help, particularly if you are something of a novice yourself: a selection of ideas for improving both the practicality and aesthetics of your outdoor space are available from Scotts of Stow.
The sheer wealth of options is enough to make choosing the right items something of a dilemma. Of course, purchasing readymade products is often easier and less work. Indulging in a spot of DIY, however, can be even more rewarding and will bring a distinctly unique and individual flavour to the outdoor regions of your home.
Painting your own clay and pottery creations is just one way of ensuring your garden is unlike any other. One fun idea for families is to decorate ornaments that reflect the interests, hobbies and passions of those who live in the house.
For another eye-catching display, it is well worth investigating the possibility of a water feature. Available in a vast range of styles and sizes, there's something to suit each and every garden. The presence of a water feature will bring a genuine sense of luxury and the exotic to your garden and the gentle sounds will create an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Often comfortably affordable, and surprisingly easy to both install and maintain, a water feature can be the crucial difference between a good garden and a great one.
Water features and ponds also open up several avenues and possibilities for additional and future decoration. Garden spitters add an enjoyable, whimsical touch to your feature while no pond is truly complete without a gang of fishing gnomes.
Whatever the size, shape and make-up, there are several ways in which you can ensure your garden is the talk of the neighbourhood.
