Three Ideas For Creating A Practical Garden

~This is a featured post. ~

Is your garden a space that you get plenty of use out or is it somewhere which is wasted? Do you take full advantage of the luxury that is your garden or is it a somewhat barren space? If you are lucky enough to have a garden of your own, you really ought to make the most of the space. After all, not everyone has the pleasure of a garden.

What you want to do is transform your unused garden into a space that is both pretty to look at and practical. Gardens have so much potential to them, which is why it’s so important to ensure that you make as much of your garden as possible. Then there’s the fact that gardens which are well taken care of and looked after add value to the property, so if you want a home that is as valuable as possible, taking care of your garden should be a priority.

To give you the inspiration that you need to create a more practical and welcoming garden, below are three ideas worth taking note of and implementing.

1. Utilize screen enclosures
Do you hate being disturbed by bugs flying around you as you eat outside? Or, does the concept of finding insects floating in your pool or hot tub put you off using these features? If you want to ensure that certain areas of your garden remain free from unwanted bugs and dirt, you should invest in a screen enclosure. If your screen enclosure is broken or damaged and is no longer working effectively, it’s important to get it fixed in time for the warmer spring and summer weather. Instead of attempting to deal with the problem yourself, avoid the headache and hire a screen enclosure repair company to deal with it for you. This way, the issue will be dealt with more quickly and will be insured for a set period, so that you don’t have to worry about the same problem occurring again.

2. Plant easy-to-care-for plants
Wondering why your plants always look a mess? Could it be because you pick plants that are hard to look after? The fact is that when it comes to your garden if you want to make sure that it looks its best, it’s important to choose plants that require low amounts of care - think grasses, bamboo, shrubs, daisies, and marigolds. There’s a common misconception that when it comes to gardening, you need to have the magic touch (AKA a green thumb) to have a beautiful garden when that’s not the case. Unless you want to hire a professional gardener to landscape your outdoor space, the key to gardening success is simple: plant easy-to-care-for-plants.

3. Build a deck or patio
One of the main reasons why a high percentage of gardens don’t get that much use is simply because they are mainly grass. The issue with grass is that it’s not usable in all weathers, as when it rains it can become sodden and muddy. Whereas, if you choose to incorporate patio or decking into your outdoor space, you can make it somewhere you can enjoy in all weather. It should also help to give your home’s value a boost, should you ever choose to sell.
