Have you run out of things to do during lockdown? If so, why not give your garden a much-needed makeover? You can easily renovate your garden on a small budget and in this blog post, we’ll be sharing tips and ideas of how you can do so. If you’re on a very small budget, just simply give your garden a tidy up by pulling out the weeds and mowing the garden. If you want to spend a little more, you can get some brand new garden furniture to make your garden a nice space to go and relax in summer.
Cleaning things up
Before you buy any new garden furniture, it’s time to give your garden a good cleaning and tidy up. Start by picking out all of the weeds and mowing the grass. You can buy a range of affordable lawn mowers at places like Suttons and get 10% off when you sign up for the Suttons newsletter. Another affordable way to freshen up your garden is by giving the fence a fresh coat of paint. Opt for a neutral colour or vibrant colour to make it look bright and summery. You can get up to 70% off shed and fence paint at B&Q. For smaller gardens, we recommend that you paint your fence a bright colour to create a cosy outdoor space.
Brighten your garden with beautiful flowers
Summer is here so it’s time to add some colour to your garden. Now is the perfect time to plant flowers as you have plenty of time to look after them while you’re at home. Flowers and plants are also really affordable if you know the right places to look. Gardening Express has a beautiful range of jungle plants, exotic plants and colourful flowers like roses, sunflowers, daisies, and pansies that will transform your garden. At the moment, you can get up to £50 off bulk packs at Gardening Express which is an incredible deal!
Affordable garden furniture
Now that you have tidied up your garden and brightened it up with plants and flowers, it’s now time to pick out your garden furniture. Whether you want a new outdoor dining set, sunlounger or bar, you can get it for a lot less than you think. Why not take a look at second-hand sites like Ebay where you can buy used garden furniture for a fraction of the price? This could save you so much money. If you prefer to buy new garden furniture then you can shop online at Rattan Garden Furniture and get up to £50 off a lovely rattan bistro set.
Your garden isn’t complete without the little finishing touches. Adding a few more details will transform your garden from great to AMAZING. There are many affordable things you can add to your garden to give it that extra wow factor. Bring wildlife to your garden by making your own inexpensive bird feeders. This will be a fun activity for the children and it costs very little to do too.
Kids will also love creating a fairy garden in a hidden corner of the garden. Just get a few cheap craft supplies from Hobbycraft like colourful pebbles and let them get creative. String lights are also a great finishing touch. They would look lovely draped around the fence to create a nice glow on warm summer evenings. You can get string lights for as little as £12 at B&Q and save even more with a B&Q discount code.
