An outdoor space can often be neglected throughout the year, so it’s important to spend a little time on it every now and again to transform it into a space that stands out and that you’re proud of.
When it comes to outdoor furniture, it can transform the space into a living area where you can sit out and enjoy your surroundings no matter what time of the year.
Investing in a bench or swing sofa is perfect for those who love star gazing.
A parasol and chairs or sun loungers are great for the summer sun.
If you already have outdoor furniture, try out your DIY skills and try upgrading the furniture you already have if possible.
Use Bold And Bright Colours
Colour can have a huge impact on our mood so try using bold and bright colours where possible to make your outdoor space more appealing.
You want it to be a space where you’re able to enjoy your time in it so don’t be afraid to pick colours you love for the fencing, soft furnishings, and flowers.
Add Lighting For Dark Evenings
Lighting is great for lighting up dark evenings during the winter, and something as simple as fairy lights are great for adding warmth to the space.
If you have decking, then attaching lights to the bannisters is great for when you’re having drinks with friends and want to stay outside.
For natural light, why not get a fire pit. They’re great for parties and not only will it light up the garden but it’ll keep you warm when it’s freezing.
Touch Up Your Fencing
If you have fencing, then you’ll know just how worn and damaged it can get throughout the year due to harsh weather conditions.
The colour might fade if you get a lot of sunshine, so it’s good to occasionally touch up your fencing with a fresh lick of paint, replacing any panels that have rotted away or become broken.
Fencing acts as an outline for your outdoor space too, so it’s good to have it well defined.
Add In A Pond
A water feature or pond is a great way of making your garden stand out. It also makes the outdoor space a little more interesting to look at.
Ponds are pretty easy to craft out yourself if you have the time and space in your garden to do so. You can also buy fish and other wildlife to add to the pond.
It’s a good idea to use pond liners for your pond so that the water remains clean and separate from soil and plants.
Water features and ponds attract different types of wildlife too, so it’s great for encouraging wildlife into your garden.
Your outdoor space should be something you enjoy all year round, whether that’s a BBQ with friends over summer or spending late nights, cuddling under the stars with your partner, with a hot chocolate in hand.
