Our garden has taken shape in stages. Over time we had had one small patio added and edged the borders and had them developed. This spring we are having a larger area laid over where we are adding a hot tub. One corner will also see the addition of an arbour. I am hoping then that I will be happy and enjoy spending many hours sitting outside. My dream would be to have a garden office – maybe next year! Here are my Garden Goals to Achieve Over The Bank Holiday.
We have a very private garden due to having a large collection of protected trees the other side of the fence. The garden wraps itself around the house and the double garage that is a separate to the house. It is not an especially long garden but it is wide.
The tree’s were one of the selling points when we moved here, but they zap the garden of moisture. This spring we aim to get the garden more colourful which has also proved difficult to maintain in the past. Our grass doesn’t grow luscious and green and we struggle to grow flowers. Therefore I have been looking for ideas of how to add colour that will last.
We bought the garden furniture last summer so that will still remain the same and I dressed it with some cushions which again add some colour.
Garden lighting is also key to add depth and atmosphere to the corners. We have been looking at the garden range from www.thelightingsuperstore.co.uk. I want to add some lights into the borders which will encourage us to sit out longer in the summer evenings.
It seems pots are the way to go and I have been having a look at planters including Capi Nature White Ribbed Cylinder Planter. This way I can water them daily and ensure some flowers last all season! I like pinks in garden and think that some patio pots will be good.
It seems that not only do we need to plant in pots but the choice of plants will make a huge difference. We need fast growing and ones that flower frequently. What suggestions do you have for us? Let me know in the comments.
