2. Outdoor Social Space
Having your own social space in the garden is really beneficial, especially through the warmer months. Not only does having some outdoor space open up your garden to a whole lot more, but you can really make the most of the space you have and enjoy your garden properly. There are many ways in which you can create a DIY social space within the garden, from building chairs and a table out of wooden pallets with an added cushion for comfort, to investing in some high-quality garden furniture and building your own wall space to separate the social area from the rest of the garden. This provides you with the perfect spot to sit back and relax.
3. Home Allotment
Growing your own fruit, vegetable and plants is extremely rewarding and can also save you a lot of money too. Whilst having a spot at your local allotment is always a good idea, there’s nothing better than having your own allotment space in the comfort of your own garden. Whether you dedicate a whole corner of the garden, or you create your own small patch that is discreetly tucked to the side, introducing a home allotment to your garden will make your gardening life a whole lot better.
