Bring Back The Life of Your Garden; New Trends, Structuring And Optimising
Summer is here, and it’s a great opportunity to liven up your garden again with more space. Garden specialists Oeco Garden Rooms predict the trends to look out for this summer and breakdown how to deal with structuring and optimising your garden.
The best and most simple way to relax and destress is to enjoy your garden. Embrace the simplicity of it, sometimes we all have moments where we get stressed or overwhelmed by something and the garden is the perfect place to relax and unwind. A lot of technology can strain your eyes and give you headache at times, it’s always a good idea to escape to nature.
• Arches – Gives a welcome feel to the garden, symbolises peace and freedom. Include flowers wrapping around the bottom and top to a great visual.
• Arbours – Provides shelter, some have seats some don’t. There are benefits in both types, with no seat you can put in place a BBQ or something that will fit inside which would require shelter. Seats you can relax, sit down and admire your garden with friends or family.
• Gazebos – Expand your outdoor experience with shelter for large activities, fits a large amount of people inside. Continues the outdoor times despite the weather.
• Garden furniture – Make your garden a place to relax and enjoy with different chairs and dinning sets.
Optimise your space
Garden sheds are great to optimise your outdoor space in larger gardens, they can store away all your garden tools and accessories making your garden tidier and will give you the extra space to work with.
For those who do not have enough room for a garden shed, a chest height storage unit with side opening doors is the perfect choice.
Create different levels in your garden to provide structure and split the area into designated spaces; this can be done by building a patio or decking, or using hedges and borders to split up the different areas.
New year, new garden
People are forever deciding on what to implement into their gardens in order to try something new and to keep the garden looking fresh and interesting. Try using bright colours on your shed or fences; this really changes the whole mood of the garden and creates interesting focal points throughout the space.
Regular maintenance is key to creating a garden to relax in. Keep your grass cut and your hedge nicely trimmed and update your flowers with the seasons. Hanging baskets are a great way of creating focal points in your garden and are easy to plant and maintain.
During the summer, gardens become the hub of the house and not just for during the day. Welcome glowing LED lighting into your garden to create an ambience perfect for entertaining.
LED lights are now available in a range of colours, are inexpensive to buy and can even be controlled by using a smartphone, great for adding atmosphere to the space. Solar lights are also an efficient way to light up walkways and specific areas of the garden.
