Now, we Brits do love a good garden, don’t we? A place to sip our tea, have the odd BBQ when the rain holds off for more than five minutes, or just to admire from the safe, warm confines of our homes as the drizzle sets in. But what if I told you that your beloved garden could be a haven all year round, not just during those three days of summer? Well, get ready because here comes a list to make your garden the gift that keeps on giving!
1) Garden Rooms: Not Just for Summer!
First things first, let’s talk about the ultimate garden luxury: garden rooms. Nope, I’m not on about your rusty old shed filled with spider webs and forgotten tools. I mean those fancy, cosy, almost-like-a-second-living-room types that you get at Modern Garden Rooms. Not only do they give you an extra space to escape to (perfect for when Aunt Marge pops round unannounced), but they’re also fabulous for those colder months. Pop a heater in, and you’ve got yourself a winter wonderland with a view.
2) Become a Winter Gardener
Yep, it’s a thing. Plant some winter-flowering plants and shrubs. Witch hazel, winter jasmine, and snowdrops? Get them in the ground and watch your garden blossom even when there’s frost. You really can enjoy pretty flowers and stunning scents at any time of the year!
Stick up a bird feeder or two, and you’ve got yourself a real-life nature documentary. Robins, sparrows, and if you’re lucky, the odd woodpecker. All from the comfort of your own home. Brew up, grab some biccies, and enjoy the show!
4) Cosy Fire Pits
Who says BBQs are just for summer? Grab some marshmallows, wrap up warm, and gather around a fire pit. It’s a bit like camping, but with the luxury of your own loo nearby. And of course, it will make spending time out in the garden more manageable in the cooler Autumn and winter days, which is just what you want!
5) Outdoor Lighting
Fairy lights, lanterns, or even some solar-powered ground lights can transform your garden into a magical realm. Perfect for those shorter winter days and long summer nights. Hang them from trees, around fences or lining paths and you won’t be disappointed.
6) Hot Tubs and Jacuzzis
If you fancy splashing out (pun intended!), why not consider getting a hot tub? It’s relaxation central and let’s face it, there’s nothing quite like being in a warm tub while the air’s all crisp.
7) DIY Greenhouse
No, you don’t need to be Alan Titchmarsh to have one. A simple setup can let you grow veggies and herbs throughout the colder months. Plus, it’s a nifty escape when you want some warmth and the scent of greenery or stay out of the rain while still enjoying the delightful plants and flowers you love so much
A garden is a joy to behold at ay time of the year, so what are you waiting for!
