6 Ways To Revamp Your Garden Without Gardening


Gardens are an important part of your property, whether you’re happily settled or looking to sell. They form the first impression of your home and set the tone for your living space. In the warmer months, they transform into an outdoor room. They provide more space to eat, relax, and entertain our friends. For some people, they have a function such as growing food. And for our children, gardens become playgrounds and magic kingdoms.

We put a lot of thought and work into our outdoor spaces. The process, for many people, is what it’s all about. As such, we read a lot about gardening and gardening tips. But there are several ways to transform our gardens which don’t involve gardening.

1. What Do You Use Your Garden For?

When starting any home project, you need to be clear about what you’re trying to achieve. Ask yourself what you use your garden for. It could be somewhere to sit and eat during the summer. Or maybe, the main focus is to create a safe play area for kids. Keep your purpose in mind as you make your changes.

2. Hire A Skip

If you have lots of clutter in your garden and outhouses, a skip may be useful. Over the course of a weekend, sort out anything that no longer wanted or useful. Recycle wherever possible or give items to friends or charity. But for all those broken tools and old toys, get rid of them.

The same is true for garden waste. If you have accumulated old branches and leaves, etc. rake them up and get rid of them.


3. Sort Out Your Driveways

Driveways and walkways with cracks and holes look unsightly. They may also be dangerous and cause tripping hazards. Larger potholes may be a problem for vehicles. If your driveways are in need of some care and attention, consider hiring professional concreters. A professional company will transform the exterior of your home with creative paving solutions. Work out what will suit the rest of your home.

4. Create A Patio Or Decking

If you eat outside a lot, consider creating a dedicated spot. Decide whether to use a concrete area or decking. If the area is raised, you will need to consider adding fencing for safety. Depending on your location and climate, would an outdoor cooking area be of benefit? Many people create bricked areas for outdoor stoves and BBQs.



5. Jet Wash

It’s surprising what a difference jet washing can make. It will make your paving look as good as new and will remove any moss and build-up. If you don’t have a jet washer, swill the area and sweep it with a sturdy yard brush.


6. Paint Exteriors

When visitors arrive at your home, it is likely they will enter through the front door. Make sure your entrance is looking smart with a lick of paint. Extend this to any other woodwork such as window frames and fascias.

By applying a few small changes you can transform the outside appearance of your home. This creates a smart and welcoming facade. It also creates curb appeal if you’re looking to sell.
