A garden is an often-neglected part of a home, especially in a time where our lives are so busy and full on. The little bit of land we get to call ours at the back of the home should be a place that is nurtured and cared for, but finding the time can be a little bit difficult. Doing up the garden doesn’t have to be a huge, costly project. You can upgrade your garden for very little and if you are on a budget then choosing the cheapest options for making a garden space look beautiful is a smart decision.
When you need to give your home a little lift and you’ve done enough to the interiors of the house, look outside. Listing your home on websites on Real Estate from Marshall White is usually the countdown that you need to get your home looking great for potential viewers and that means getting your gloves on and green thumb ready. You may not even be choosing to move home, but you should still be doing up your yard ready for the summer.
Don’t be put off by the weather! If you wait around for good weather, you could be doing nothing but wait so get yourself out there and assess the area. Pull up the weeds that have sprouted through and get laying down some strong weed killer to prevent them coming back. If you have the space, work out where you could put down a flower border or vegetable patch. Having a little patch of fertile earth that can grow seasonal flowers is a huge selling point for a garden.
Keeping it neat and tidy doesn’t have to be difficult. A low maintenance garden without much grass can be a little bland to look at so invest in some large potted plants and climbers for the fences. Some sunflowers snaking round the garden can brighten up even the greyest of days and if you add in little touches like solar lights edging the borders, you can give your garden a little light no matter how dark it gets outside. Borrow a pressure washer or invest in one and give any flagstone or paving a good wash. After a time of neglect, the stonework can look a lot grubbier than it would have normally. This isn’t that big of a job, but the difference in how the floor looks once you’re done giving it a good wash will show you how little you have to do to freshen up the garden.
Finally, invest in some patio furniture. It doesn’t need to be over the top expensive, if you manage to find something at a thrift store, you could get some metal paint and give it a revamp that suits your style. The garden is an outdoor space where you can find some peace and a little calm. Having beautiful flowers and somewhere comfortable to sit is not only an attractive quality in a home, but an essential to your wellbeing.
