Summer Gardening Ideas

Another fall is nearly among us. Perhaps you are reflecting and considering how you’d rather a garden that is more suitable for the summer. Well, do not fret. There is plenty you can do ahead of next year. In the following article, we will explore ways that you can improve your garden’s look and design ahead of summer 2021!

For instance, you might be interested in adding water features to your garden. These fixtures can improve the aesthetic of your garden, providing a more natural look while also creating a more tranquil environment through its relaxing sounds. In addition, water features can even enhance air quality and humidity! Examples of water features are cascades, rills, drilled rocks, waterfalls, fountains, ponds and water blades.

Water features have a similar benefit to birdfeeders in that they can encourage wildlife into your garden. Types of birdfeeders include house, tube, ground, suet, tray, seed, nut & nibble, and window feeders. You could even make your own DIY birdfeeder simply by using a tea cup, wine bottle or even a plastic bottle. 

Another fantastic way to attract nature to your garden is with flowers. They can also provide your back yard with a flare of color and vibrancy! 

You should consider having several flower beds added to your garden. This can be achieved with a raised or in-ground bed. It’s preferable to feature the tallest flowers at the back row and the shortest ones at the front.  

Alternatively or as an addition, you may wish to have potted plants added to your garden. These could be laid out along your garden walls, on the deck or the patio among other places. Speaking of a patio, installing one in your garden can create the ideal social fixture for you and your friends to chat and relax during the warm summer months! The same is true of a decking. In the case of a deck, there are several materials you can choose from, ranging from vinyl to composite to softwood, hardwood or PVC. 

When it comes to garden surfaces, it may interest you to have a new lawn surface added. Before doing so, you should consider what type of surface you want in terms of durability, looks and other characteristics. Further, you’ll also need to take turf prices into account! 

Lastly, what about adding a garden bench or two? It could be a straight, backless or lutyens bench among many other types. In terms of materials, aluminum, timber, plastic resin, rattan, iron and steel are some of the commonly used!
