How to Get the Most out of Your Garden During Lockdown.

{Collaborative Content} It is a very difficult time at the moment and a lot of us are struggling to adjust to being stuck at home all of the time. During the lockdown, it is important that you try to stay active and get outside, but you need to do it safely, which means making the most of the garden. We all have a lot of time on our hands, so now is a good time to start thinking about your garden and making some changes so you can get the most out of it. Here’s how you can the most out of your garden during the lockdown. 



Get Some Furniture 
If you do not already have garden furniture, you should invest in some. Now that the weather is warming up, you should try to spend as much time outside as possible because it is good for your health and it helps you to get out of the house during the lockdown. Obviously, you cannot get out to the normal shops that you would go to for garden furniture, but there are some great online shops, like Alice's Garden, where you can buy all of the garden furniture and equipment that you need. Putting a nice table and chair set out there means that you can sit out there and relax, and even eat your meals outside if the weather is nice enough. 

Add Some Outdoor Toys 
The lockdown is tough on everybody, but it’s especially hard for kids that would normally be able to go out and play with their friends. It’s important that the kids stay active, and if you can’t find things to entertain them, they will quickly become restless. That’s why you need to make sure that the garden is kid friendly by adding some outdoor toys and play equipment for them.
Plant Some Vegetables 
A lot of people have concerns about food during the lockdown and there are a lot of items that are hard to get hold of in the supermarkets. If you want to get more out of your garden and make sure that you have plenty of fresh food for your family, you should consider planting some vegetables out there. Now is the perfect time to start growing vegetables like carrots, leeks, lettuce, onions, and spinach. They’re actually quite simple to grow once you know what you are doing, and it’s a great fun activity for the whole family. Plus, you have the added bonus of delicious fresh vegetables in your back garden.  

If you are not confident about growing vegetables, why not try some herbs instead? When stocks are limited in the supermarket, you need to make the most of the kitchen cupboard essentials that you do have. Some fresh herbs can help to elevate your meals and make them delicious, and they’re simple to grow. 

The lockdown is taking a toll on us all, but you can make things a little more comfortable for yourself if you get out in the garden and make the most of it.
