From the smallest to largest spaces, you may be hoping to revive your garden by simply adding a few decorative touches or perhaps you aim to work on a complete makeover. Either way, we have created a list of details to consider when giving your garden a brand new charm.

What inspires you?

Whilst transforming your garden may seem like a daunting task, remember that this is your perfect chance to make it into whatever you have been wishing for.

Whether it’s a zen garden or a social space that you’re hoping to create, the choice is ultimately yours to make. If you are lacking inspiration then why not have a browse through Pinterest, as this visual platform offers a range of ideas to help you decide on plants, flowers, containers and accessories.

Clean and tidy

Although it’s not the most exciting part of the process, giving your garden a clear out allows you to have an idea of what has survived the cold weather, what you need to replace and what space you have to create the garden look you’re aiming for.

The best way to keep your garden tidy after you have done your much needed clean is to purchase a storage container — perfect for storing gardening tools, footwear or kid’s outdoor toys.

A space for social gatherings

Summer has officially begun, meaning that there will plenty of days lounging in the sun and we are sure that you will want a space for friends and family to sit together and bask in the warm weather.

Why not create a charming al-fresco dining area by setting up a dining table, as well as feature lighting to frame the designated space?

At Hayes Garden World, you will find a variety of beautiful outdoor dining tables, such as the Kettler Palma High Dining Modular Corner Set in White Wash, which combines luxury and comfort, making it the ideal purchase.

If you don’t want an outdoor dining table then perhaps a seating area would be more suitable to your tastes — consider a charming swing seat or the Alexander Rose Monte Carlo Hanging Chair.

Cosiness is key

Being able to enjoy your outdoor space for the entirety of the day is important, and the way to do this is to invest in a fire pit to keep you warm when the temperature goes down.

A fire pit can add comfort as well as the opportunity of toasting marshmallows, which is always a winner on those summer evenings. At Hayes Garden World, there are plenty of options to choose from, such as the Happy Cocooning Round Cocoon, which uses gas and will be the perfect addition to your garden.

Remember the lighting

Don’t underestimate the importance of creating an atmosphere in your garden. Whilst a fire pit can bring a sense of comfort to your garden, lights can completely elevate the overall tone of your outdoor space.

The lights you choose will bring character to your garden, and you can choose according to your personal preference. Whether it is fairy lights or lanterns, there is an array of designs that will brighten your evenings as you dine alfresco or simply stargaze.

Remember the four seasons

When giving your garden the ultimate makeover, you will undoubtedly want it to look beautiful all-year-long, and the only way to truly do this is by choosing flowers and plants that will in different seasons.

By selecting plants and flowers that will bloom in each season, you will receive colour throughout the year — think tulips for spring, delphiniums for summer, dahlias and roses for autumn, poinsettia for winter and asters for every season.
