Do you love nothing more than spending your free time in the garden? Do all your friends refer to you as “the one with green fingers?” If so, you’ll be happy to learn the weather is going to pick up soon, and so you can get back to your favorite hobby. 2015 looks set to become the perfect year for gardeners. While the temperatures might be a little too cold at the moment, most experts are predicting we will have the hottest summer on record. For that reason, you need to start planning ahead. Most of us only have a couple of days off work each weekend, so you’ll want to make the most of your time. Remember, you don’t have to break the bank to create something beautiful. You just need to get creative. It’s much better to use recycled materials to create the desired effect.
Lay a new lawn
During the winter months, grass can die and start to look a little unsightly. Considering that, you may wish to dig yours up and lay a new lawn over the next few months. If you choose to do that before the weather improves, it might be wise to use some organic lawn care products. They don’t contain any of the dangerous toxins you’ll find in alternative items, and they successfully keep your grass healthy. While you should use those solutions all year round, they are especially important if you’ve just laid a new lawn during the winter.
Use recycled tires as flowerbeds
There are many guides online that show you exactly how to find and use recycled tires. Getting some from your local haulage firm shouldn’t cost much money. You then simply lie them flat in your garden, fill them with good soil, and start planting. It’s a good idea to think about which flowers you would like best. You can always mix different seeds. Just make sure that all the colors you use blend well. If you need some information on which colors go together, you can use standard charts on any DIY website.
Plant some evergreen bushes
If you’re sick and tired of your garden looking unattractive during the cold months, it might be wise to plant some evergreen bushes. Which ones you select will depend upon the size and shape of your outdoor space. Just don’t get carried away by planting too many. Those shrubs tend to grow very quickly. The last thing you want is for your garden to look similar to a jungle. One or two bushes should be enough for the average sized home. Of course, you can also plant trees if you have enough room. That is the best way of creating a garden for the whole family. Your kids would love a tree-house, wouldn’t they?
We hope you now have some fantastic ideas that could transform your garden significantly over the next few months. Perhaps you might even like to purchase a hammock? That way, you can relax and enjoy your efforts after a long day working in the soil.
