Top Tips for a Beautiful Garden this Summer

I don’t know about you, but I love nothing more than sitting out in the garden, surrounded by beautiful flowers, and  listening to the birds singing whilst enjoying a glass of something refreshing. Sadly, gardening is not my strong point! I would love to be able to spend hour upon hour tending to the garden, but with work and a hectic family life, it’s just not possible.

However, even though I have limited time, and limited skills, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve for keeping on top of the garden and making sure it looks pretty throughout the summer.

Top Tips for a Beautiful Garden this Summer

Get yourself a gardener

We have used a gardener in the past to keep on top of cutting the grass and tidying up the borders. When you lead a busy life, gardening becomes another job on your list, when all you really want to do is have a little down time.

You can ask your gardener to do specific jobs, or ask them to keep on top of the general upkeep of your garden on a regular basis so that you can just focus on enjoying it.

Low maintenance gardens

If you want your garden to look pretty all year round, then you need it to be low garden maintenance. Consider planting perennial plants which will come back year after year without much effort from you. If you don’t have the time to put into the garden, then you want to avoid planting seasonal plants such as summer bedding plants.

Garden decorations

Garden ornaments are big business these days, and you would be amazed at the choices available. You can find fairies, gnomes, plaques, the choices are endless.

Opt for bright, vibrant colours to really bring your garden to life.

Have a clear out

Just like your home, your garden probably needs a good clear out from time to time. It can be heavy work, so you might want to rope in the help of somebody experienced in garden clearance. If you’re doing it yourself, then make sure you’re aware of what you can and can’t take to your local household waste centre, and what can go into your garden waste bin at home. You might be surprised to find that some waste centres charge a fee for garden waste.

If you’ve got old plant pots hanging about year after year, then think about getting rid and replacing with bright new ones. Mirrored mosaic plant pots are really popular at the moment and are a great way to bounce the natural sunlight around the garden too.

If your garden needs a little attention to get it looking it’s best ready for summer, then hopefully these tips will help! Do you have any tips for maintaining your garden when you’re short on time?
