As a place to relax and connect with nature, a household garden is incredibly important for both adults and children alike. From kicking a ball around to having a place to socialise in the summer, the garden can be a welcome addition to any home. However, what if it looks a bit of a mess or you’re not sure what to do with it?
Fortunately, there are many ways you can revamp a garden and, along with looking awesome, it can add value to your property too. So, why not don the gardening gloves, grab some tools and get inspired by these ideas. From budget upgrades to bigger renovations, here are a few ways to upscale and improve your garden to suit you.
We’re all about waste management and environmentally friendly living here at Cherry Hill Waste and planting trees and shrubbery is one of the best things you can add to your garden to promote eco-friendly living. Planting trees, nurturing them and watching them grow is an incredibly rewarding process and these trees will absorb any excess Co2, make our air cleaner and combat climate change. Alternatively, why not grow your own food instead? This eliminates the need to travel for food, eliminates any excess waste and creates a sustainable, reusable source of fresh food. Both planting trees and crops can be a fun and encouraging activity to do with a partner, housemates or with children.
Studies have shown that living near water is incredibly beneficial for your health, particularly mental health. This doesn’t mean you have to dig out and create a lake for your garden. Instead, there are many things you can do to include water into your garden. Why not consider having a pond of any size or shape? This would be a calming addition, will help foster wildlife and become an educational setting for children to learn about water life. For a more affordable option, why not add a birdbath or a small fountain?
If your garden is big enough and you’re longing for a picturesque space to eat outside as a family, host a barbeque or somewhere to chill with a book after a long day, why not consider putting in a decking area? Whether big or small, a decking area is a useful addition to any garden and won’t take long to install either.
