There is nothing like a burst of sunshine to make you want to get your hands dirty in a garden. After all, it is a private space where you will gladly spend your days soaking up the sunshine alone, with your family or friends.
For this reason, you will want your exterior to look just as beautiful as your interior design. For help creating an attractive garden, here are some easy outdoor projects for this summer.
Create a Pond
A pond can be a beautiful focal point in your exterior design, as it will be the first thing your guests will want to look at once they step into your garden. It can also add a sense of tranquillity to your space. If you want to create a stunning pond for fish, frogs, and newts, visit water-garden.co.uk for essential pond supplies, such as liners, pumps, filters, fish feeders, and pond water treatments.
Spruce Up Your Concrete
If your paving is looking a little old and tired, give it a new lease of life with self-levelling caulk. One tube can freshen up your steps and walkways, as you can simply add the caulk into the cracks.
Not only will this make your paving appear brand-new, but it can also prevent weeds from sprouting up. Once the caulk is dry, consider jet-washing the concrete. It’s a small, affordable project that could transform your garden this summer.
Build a Garden Sofa
You don’t need to spend a considerable amount of money to create a stylish outdoor seating area. It is possible to build a garden sofa using just a few cinderblocks, a couple of pieces of lumber, and some colourful and comfortable cushions.
Simply stack the cinderblocks on top of each other on two even sides, before sliding the lumber boards through the holds. You must also apply a corrective adhesive onto the blocks to prevent someone from falling once they sit down.
All you’ll need to do then is add a bench cushion to create a rustic seat that’s both comfortable and attractive. The project will take no more than an hour to complete, so you can sit in your beautiful garden straight away.
Make a Unique Planter
Do you have an old spare tyre sitting in your garage? Maybe an old dining chair is going to waste in your loft? If so, turn everyday items into a fun planter for your garden. Paint them a different colour if you want to brighten up the space, before adding compost and seeds into your new planter. You can trust they will look great on your patio, decking, or under a tree in your garden.
Add a Traditional Rope Swing onto a Tree
If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful tree in your garden, consider hanging a traditional rope swing. You will need a strong rope to hang the swing, as well as a pine disc that should be cut into a circle. Simply make a hole in the disc’s centre and then knot the rope from the bottom to support it. You can trust your kids will love it when playing in your garden this summer.
