Transform your garden in the New Year
Our gravel experts share their top tips for how to make the most of outdoor spaces.
There are countless ways to revamp your garden, and with New Year on the way, there’s never a better time to think about the ways you can add a little vibrance and excitement to your outdoor space. Check out our gravel experts’ tips on how to get the best out of your garden for 2019.
Planting some new flowers and trees can be one of the easiest and most affordable ways to inject a touch of colour into a garden. Make room for flower beds in the corners of the garden that receive most sunlight, accent them with sleepers and tend to your flowers throughout the year.
Whilst flower beds and corners with trees can add interest to a boring back garden, paths can really open your garden up. Creating an easy walkway for you to get from one part of your garden to the other can dramatically change how you use the space, as well as making it look bigger in some cases.
If your garden’s big enough, considering specific sections of flowers, grass and seatting areas can be good options. Using sleepers and partitions can break up the garden with style, as well as keeping the garden looking busy and fresh.
If you’re looking for an elaborate focal point, a water feature can be one of the most exciting ways to go. Build a specific area for the feature to be, and with the help of an expert, construct the piping to a water source. Use pretty stones or gravel around the feature to complete it.
