How to Create a Beautiful Family Garden

Ad {collaborative} As summer fast approaches, the time is coming to dig out your flip flops and get your garden ready to some great fun in the sun with your family. After a long period without care and attention, tackling your garden may be a daunting task. However, there are many ways you can get it looking ship shape and ready for BBQ season to get well under way! With a little bit of hard work and creativity, a garden of any condition can be converted into an outdoor haven that has the same comfortable feeling as the inside of your home.

Tackle The Greenery

When you finally wave goodbye to winter, you begin to see the damage that the bad weather has done to your garden. Overgrown grass that’s turning brown, an excess of weeds popping up left, right and centre, and any hope of colour or beauty out of sight. One of the first things to do is switch on your lawn mover and remove everything that stands in your way. Cut your grass down as low as you can (as it will grow back very fast) and use a strimmer to rid your garden of any pesky weeds or overgrown shrubs or bushes. It’s a great idea to buy some flowers to plant or some seeds to grow yourself, as the pop of colour can brighten up the whole garden and make it feel more homely immediately.

Invest In Some Accessories  

When you’ve managed to find the floor, it’s time to invest in some suitable accessories if you don't have them already. Find the BBQ and put it back where it belongs, and get a table and chairs or a picnic bench of some kind to eat meals outside. If you’re planning to eat in the garden regularly, it may be an idea to get some citronella candles to keep away any bugs and flies. Install some lighting such as solar powered lanterns or fairy lights so you can enjoy your garden in the later hours too. If your family take an interest in gardening or perhaps want to try and grow some fruit and vegetables of their own, visit Greenhouse Stores to find some beautiful potting sheds that make a great addition to any garden.

Invite The Whole Family

When you’ve got everything set up and ready, it’s time to invite the whole family around! Add a few extra chairs and cover them with some blankets for the kids as the night draws in, and get the designated ‘griller’ to assume their position. A garden party or summer BBQ is a great way to fully enjoy your garden whilst making the most of the sun with your family and friends around you.

It’s easier than you might think to create a beautiful garden for your whole family to enjoy. Dedicate a day or 2 to get it back to its former glory, and you will all be able to reap the benefits for many months afterwards.
