At this time of the year, we spend more time out in the garden, and there are many things that we can do to make our gardens a more enjoyable place to be. If you are looking for some inspiration to give your garden the wow factor, then here are some ways that you can improve your garden…

Water Feature and Ponds – As well as being relaxing and tranquil, water in your garden can also be hugely beneficial to the local wildlife. If you want to go all out and build your own pond there are many ways you can do this, and you don’t need to have a huge space to have a successful pond. Some people even like to use an old barrel with a pump to create their own small pond. Alternatively, there are many beautiful water features which can give your garden a zen feel.

Decorative Touches – There are many ways that you can improve the look of your garden, simply with some decoration. Depending on your personal style, you might like the fun look of gnomes and flamingos, elegant stone statues, or rustic looking garden sculptures made from materials like this copper pipe

Garden Lighting – Summer means that we can all spend longer out in the garden and with the nights being so warm, even after the sun has set, we want to spend time out there. Using solar lights doesn’t only make your garden look great but they are also a good way to keep the light in the garden once the sun has gone for the day, meaning the party doesn’t have to stop!

A Garden Room – A great way to add to your garden is to add a garden room. On the days when it is not quite the weather to be outdoors, this allows you to still spend time in the garden. You can even turn it into an office if you work from home, which gives you a space away from the rest of the house to work in peace and quiet.
