Then continue to read this article and learn more about where to start, and how to make your garden the perfect place to spend summer in.
Which style do you want?
If you are not one of those persons who already have all of the tools for a makeover, it is good to start with those. But before you are going shopping, it is also a good idea to figure out, which style you are going for. In that way, you can both shop for the basic tools and the items you want in your garden simultaneously. There exist multiple websites, which will have all you need, and at this site, you can even get advice from professionals.
It may be a good idea to start trimming your garden if it is overgrown. In that way, you can get an overview of the garden. Once you can see the full size of the garden, you can start making a plan for what you want to do in the garden. Maybe it should be divided into zones, or maybe you want it to be one big garden? No matter what, it can be a great benefit to make a plan for what is going to happen and what things you will need to purchase.
The most important tools you will need to give your garden a makeover – and to keep it in perfect shape after the makeover – are a lawnmower, hedge trimmer, shear for pruning, spade, shovel, rake, plant box, and a watering cand. The rest depends on which elements you want in your garden. Maybe you want raised beds to grow your own vegetables, a sandpit for your children, a patio, and a lounge sofa to relax in? This is totally up to you and your needs. But if you want your own garden furniture and you do not want to spend a lot of money on them (these can be really expensive), you can build your own.
Build your own garden furniture
While it may sound like a major project and a task for professionals to build garden furniture, there is hope ahead. Because it does not have to be too complicated to make your own relaxing furniture. Take, for example, some used boards that are still waiting to arrive at the landfill, or find some half-worn trolleys or pallets and put them on a pair of fine legs or wheels. In this way, you can decide the size, height, and color of your new furniture for the garden. Finally, give them a coat of wood oil, or paint them in a distinctive color.
When you have decided on the major elements, it is time to find all of the small things, which makes it even cozier to spend time in. Find some lanterns, blankets, pillows, and other things that will make it homely.
