Your garden deserves just as much love as the inside part of your house. After all, if you plan your garden correctly, then you’ll have a place to unwind, where your kids can play (if you have any), and you can even make your garden a wildlife-friendly retreat — a hugely important task in an age when the number of bees in Britain is facing new battles. Transforming your garden can seem like an uphill task, but it’s not just one big job, more a series of doing a bunch of small jobs. In all, you can put together a pretty magnificent garden within a matter of months, and once you have, you’ll be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
Transforming your Garden: Let the Sun In
Everything’s better with sunshine. Most people have trouble getting sunshine into their homes, but in some cases, it can even be difficult to get it into your yard. If you have large shrubs blocking sunlight, then your garden won’t be getting as much sunlight as it could — or as much as you deserve! Take a look to see if there are any obvious objects blocking your sunshine, and get rid of them. Be mindful of cutting down trees, though — those big, old guys need some love.
A little bit of colour can brighten anyone’s day. Why not ensure that your garden helps to give your mood a lift every morning? Doing this is as simple as getting some new flowers in your flower bed. It’s good to have a variety of flower types in your garden, so be sure to pick up some tulip, daffodil, and snowdrop bulbs. Once they’re planted, it won’t be long before you have a bright and happy garden that always puts a smile on your face.
Or Hire a Landscaper
Of course, if you really don’t have the skills — or the time — to tend to your garden yourself, then you can always consider hiring a landscaper to do the job for you. It’s easier to learn the basics of gardening than you might think, so don’t think that you necessarily need to hire a professional to do the job for you. But if you sense that you won’t have the time to learn those skills, then hire one to take care of your garden for you. You’ll pay for it, but they’ll give you a quality garden.
Many of us spend next to no time interacting with wildlife. And that makes sense since the majority of us live in or near major cities, where wildlife tends to avoid. However, there’s a lot of value in bringing some wildlife into your life — and your garden is an excellent way to do it. There are specific flowers you can plant that’ll help to attract insects and birds. And if you really want to make your garden a wildlife-friendly place, then add a water feature. After a while, you’ll find that it’s positively teeming with life.Love Lilla xx
