Now and again we all feel like we’d like more space in our home, and one place where you can never have enough room is in the garden. Whether you enjoy chilling out in your garden, having a few beers, or letting the kids run wild, there never seems to be enough space to do all the things you enjoy. However, even with a small outdoor space, there are lots you can do to make the most of it, and it just takes a bit of imagination. Here are a few tips to maximize the space in your garden.
Gardens can quickly get cluttered, and anything that can be kept outdoors will inevitably be stuck in the garden at some point. From kids bikes to garden tools, having too much stuff in your garden soon makes it feel small, and some ways you can de-clutter include:
- Adding a shed with lots of shelves for storage
- Installing a bike shed
- Getting a garden clearance team in to throw out debris
- Throwing out any damaged or broken items
This will instantly make your garden feel bigger and will give you a great sense of relief. When you think of de-cluttering, you may only picture getting rid of junk in your house, but de-cluttering on the outside is also really important.
Cut back trees and shrubs
Trees and shrubs make your garden look beautiful, but they also take up precious space. Consider having them cut back, or book a palm tree removal in Perth to quickly free up space in your garden. Fewer trees and shrubs also mean less shade in your garden, and this can brighten it up and make it feel bigger. Instead of large shrubs, add greenery with potted flowers or smaller bushes, as this is equally beautiful yet takes up less space.
Keep it neat
Regularly mowing the lawn, pulling up weeds, and generally tidying up your garden will make it feel so much bigger for little effort. If you’re not green-fingered, then consider having a gardener visit every couple of weeks to do the difficult work. You can then do the lighter jobs such as plant watering that don’t take much time.
Use vertical space
Mounting plant pots on your wall or fence looks great and saves space in your garden. It means your lawn and patio are freed up, yet your garden is still colorful and pretty. It also keeps them safe from children and pets, so is ideal for those who want to make more play space.
Gardens have many purposes and are a lovely place to escape from the stresses of life. No matter how small your garden there are ways to make the most of it, and it starts by clearing some space. The more space you can reclaim, the more you can do, and you’ll no doubt enjoy the feeling of having room to relax and chill out after a long day.
