  • Restoring Your Garden To Its Former Glory

    Many people’s gardens will have experienced substantial damage during the winter storms that we have seen over the last few weeks, and some may even still be underwater and looking a far cry from what they did towards the end of last year. And whilst there may still be a couple more week of adverse weather to endure, spring is being beckoned frantically over the horizon like an overzealous aircraft marshal positioning a plane at the terminal.

    Therefore, now could be the perfect time to start planning a few ways to turn your garden back into the beautiful oasis that it once was. Here are some great tips for anyone contemplating doing just that.

    Fencing Installation –

    Perhaps your fencing has taken a bit of battering during the latest patch of windy weather, or maybe it has stood up to the relentless conditions this time but you feel that this could be the last winter it will be able to do so. Either way, it might be time to have new panels installed to give your garden a nice clean new look. Our trusted fencing installation specialists will provide a great service for anyone wanting to provide a brand new, sturdy barricade against the elements.

    Enchant With Plants –

    Gardens can lose most of their colour during the winter months as the plants all take cover to protect themselves from the violent rain and wind we have been experiencing. However, you can help bring some beauty and colouration back by introducing some new plants at the start of spring. Tulips, daffodils and winter aconites are a great way to bring some vibrancy to your garden around this time, but there are so many options to choose from depending on your preferences. If you would like more information about which plants fare well in the UK and where you should plant them this article from the BBC is great.

    Taking Your Garden To The Next Level –

    You may feel that with the damage that your garden has endured recently, this is the perfect time to make some more wholesale changes in order to get it looking like a serene paradise once again. You may want to take steps to ensure it is not effected by bad weather in the same way again next year, or simply give it a bit of a facelift so that you can get the most out of it when the summer finally comes round.

    One option could be to get a garden design specialist to help you recondition certain parts of your patch and give your garden a more elegant feel. Alternatively, you could opt to install some decking, a pond, or even a water feature to give your backyard a stylish makeover.
