Design Trends to Watch
Many different design trends for spring 2023 are worth noting. Some of them are easier to implement than others. You could try: –
A pergola with festoon lighting is a highly aesthetic way of styling your garden. If you have a spare corner plot in your garden, turn it into a cosy place to relax. A wooden pergola can either be purchased or built by a professional. Dress it with stylish festoon lights and you’ll be able to enjoy it during the evenings as well as throughout the day. You could even add a weatherproof roof to give you more versatility to use this area at all times of the year. The possibilities are endless!
On-trend outdoor furniture – there are many different styles and colourways of outdoor furniture on the market right now. If you are keen to invest, then ensure that you purchase weatherproof furniture and most importantly, matching waterproof covers. This will ensure that you can safely store your furniture away in the cold and wet months.
Decking and flooring – garden flooring can often be dull, making it easily overlooked when it comes to design choices. By throwing down some weatherproof rugs, you can instantly brighten and add interest to any area. Painting or paving in stylish colours is another great option.
Maintenance to Tackle
If your garden is looking a little worse for wear, then tackling those small maintenance jobs could help reveal its true potential. Raking leaves, fixing broken fences, and clearing away any debris will leave you with a clean and clear space to work with. Fixing broken gutters and ensuring that drains are kept clear will also mean less mess in the winter months.
