If your backyard or the garden is looking a little bit tired this year, there’s a good chance you’re on the web for a few tips to really spruce it up. Whether you’re a party-thrower, a relaxer or just looking to stare out of your back window at a beautiful oasis-like space, we have everything you need to know to get going on a transformation for the garden that you will really love.
As you’ll know, a large, well-designed garden is a major focus for today’s homebuyers given that COVID-19 really pushed us all to get the most out of our backyards, and so when it comes to adding value and getting a home sold, you will want to make sure the garden is a big focus this year.
With all that said, there are a tonne of ways to spruce up the garden and really get it looking like a paradise, and so we have a list of 6 tips to get your garden looking incredible below.
Off the top, you will want to kick things off with a thorough tidy-up of the space.
This will give you somewhat of a clean slate to start with and you might find a tonne of your own inspiration for the backyard now that you see just how much space you have.
One of our bigger tips here is to go all out when it comes to the greenery cleaning. You might want to consider tearing up a large part of your garden to start fresh and to just hand off your garden waste with 1300 rubbish to handle.
Once this is all done, you can then draft up some plans or sit and have a think about how you’ll use the space.
A second tip is to have a look at your outdoor space’s current style and consider what you can do to re-style the space to suit your new vibe or your home’s interior.
This extends to everything from your outdoor seating cushions, your tables, flowers and runners, and everything else.
Do your best to tie in one cohesive style and you’ll be on the right track to creating an outdoor oasis that is as beautiful to use as it is to look at.
When it comes to the modern garden, the right slabs or pavers are as important as tapware is in the kitchen.
You will want to take a look at these pavers and determine how well they suit your home and whether you want to switch them up. Keep in mind that your pavers will pave the way for your outdoor space to look villa-like, or just like a traditional backyard. A large, flat, and matte paver goes a long way when it comes to creating a paradise.
If your yard’s size allows, do your best to integrate some form of multi-use corner space that you can make use of for everything from relaxing, cooking with a BBQ or just about anything else.
There’s no better way to amp up the backyard than with a mancave, BBQ space, or relaxation zone in the garden, and so work to design something that suits your home and also how you’d like to use this ‘corner’ of the garden.
For our readers who have garden spaces that are a little small, you can work to maximize the space with interior decor such as mirrors.
Adhering a mirror to a wall, a fence or just having some set up in the sitting zone is a great way to get the most out of your backyard garden and really decorate it in a way that works well with your home.
Our final tip to making a paradise in the backyard is keeping with faux plants and grass, as these never die, age, and almost always look incredible.
If your someone with a yard that doesn’t seem to grow grass all too well, or you’re a bit too time-poor to manage your lawns, a hyper-realistic faux lawn might be the way to go! It will always look great, be inviting, and looks and feels just like the real thing.
All those six points in mind, and we’re sure you have everything you need to really maximize your outdoor space this year and get it looking as close to a paradise as possible.
Always do your best to make sure you’re creating this space with your own goals and use cases in mind and you’re on the right track.
