If you’ve ever imagined how much space you really have in your garden, you can create stunning designs with the help of a designer. It’s a great way to discover how much space you actually have available in your garden.
The important thing to remember is that you should never get bogged down by the idea of space with garden design ideas. More than a few people have done this and felt they’ve wasted time and money and yet are still not aware of how much space they have. So, if you’re at this stage and still confused, here are some pointers.
First of all, use a measuring tape to measure out the exact space you want your garden to be. If you’re not sure where to start, then just take a look at your home, office, or even your caravan to work out the exact size of the space. However, this isn’t always practical and it may be good to do it on paper first, in order to see what’s possible.
To help you on your journey, I’ve gone through the different garden design ideas that you can do on a small scale. If you have a small back garden, you can try a pop-up windscreen. This is easily made with a two-by-four and paint.
The key part of this is to measure the length of the path in the back of your house and the width. This is then cut into the two pieces of wood that will make up the bottom of the pop-up windscreen. You can then put them on the ground to secure the area to the ground before you do any wiring.
Another easy way to stretch out your garden is by using string to hang plants and flowers from. Just wrap the string around a bush or anything you can find and place it in the ground in the garden space you have. At first, it may seem like the plants won’t be hanging there very long, but as you move the plants around, they will start looking more natural.
If you’re trying to save space in your garden, then using a smaller outdoor space heater is a great idea. Many people don’t realize how much space they really have when it comes to heating their backyard. We all spend more time outside during the winter, so it’s important that we keep our backyard warm enough. Many people might have a gas tankless outdoor heater but don’t realize how effective it is.
When you need to save on heat, but also save electricity and still get great heat, then solar-powered lights can be a brilliant option. There are plenty of solar lights out there, that use the power of the sun. The downside is that it’s expensive and can be difficult to install.
If you’re not spending too much on design but want a big difference for your garden, then a planter would be a big difference. A planter will keep your plants out of the cold weather and keep them looking nice. Some have shelves too which will keep all your plant’s neat and tidy, whilst others come with lighting systems that can be adjusted from inside the planter.
They’re a great way to keep your plants looking great, without having to worry about them surviving. For example, they can be placed anywhere you like in your garden, on either side of the path, or at one end of the path, depending on where you would like to plant them. For beginners, it’s a good idea to use a water feature to direct the water into the path of the plants.
Whatever design ideas you decide on, it’s vital that you keep your head on straight. There are many tips that are very useful and you will find that many of these are found online.
