Summertime is here and that means spending more time outdoors soaking up that sunshine!
If you’re lucky enough to have a private garden attached to your home, then this is the perfect opportunity to invite friends and family over for a BBQ and some summery cocktails, staying outdoors even after the sun goes down to enjoy those warm, relaxing evenings.
If you do love spending time in your garden, but feel like it could use a bit of a makeover, here are a few tips on how you can create a luxury garden to enjoy year after year.
Water features are beautiful additions to any garden and can help to create a relaxing atmosphere as the sound of running water is very soothing.
What’s great is that they come in various designs and sizes, so finding one that will fit in your garden and reflect your tastes shouldn’t be too hard.
Whether it’s a small trickling fountain or a stream that runs around the perimeter of your garden, a water feature will make it feel a little more glamorous and Zen-like.
What could feel more luxurious than a hot tub? A lot of people only get to enjoy these if they go on holiday and there happens to be one at their rental, so if you can afford to have one put in your back garden, it is certainly something to consider.
It will provide you with the perfect way to unwind after a long day, and you can enjoy a refreshing glass of wine or cocktail while you soak as the cherry on top of your sundae.
It will certainly make you popular with friends and family, and your garden will be the best place to have a summer party. Check out these hot tubs to see some examples of the kind of tubs available and see which one will suit your garden best.
A Gorgeous Patio or Decking Area
If you want your garden to look the part, having a gorgeous patio or decking area where you can place your garden dining table or lounge chairs is a good idea.
It will break your garden up into sections that look aesthetically pleasing, particularly if you stain your decking in a nice color or choose quality paving stones for your patio.
Some pretty flowerpots place around the edges of these areas will help to add a colorful and stylish touch, too.
If you have a patio, why not get a fire pit or chimenea that you can light when it starts to get cooler in the evenings? This will look great, but also help to keep you warm while you stargaze.
Lush Plant Life
Finally, if you want your garden to look luxurious, dead or dull plants are not going to help with that.
There are low-maintenance plants you can choose that still look wonderful if you’re not a keen gardener, but try to pick a variation of foliage with pops of color here and there to make it feel more vibrant.
Always keep your lawn and plants watered so they don’t begin to brown or look unappealing.
