Ideas For Getting Your Garden Summer-Ready

Posted on - 11.04.23

The winter chill is finally gone and we are loving these warm spring days - it’s the perfect opportunity to spend time with our loved ones in the garden. To commemorate, we’re going to share our ideas for sprucing up your garden ready for what promises to be another scorching summer. Gardens are important as they provide a private green getaway to rest, recharge and socialise with those close to us. However, over the long cold months, we can lose motivation to keep on top of garden maintenance, but that’s why we’re here to help! Find out more about how to bring your garden to life with our handy guide.

Budget-friendly ideas

If you’re not looking for anything expensive, there are still many ways you can spruce up your garden without breaking the bank. One way to bring some life back into your garden is with gorgeous decorative gravel. Gravel can be used around your garden in a multitude of ways, plus it is available in lots of different colours to match any garden theme! Using gravel in flower beds is ideal for a rustic touch and also comes with the added benefit of stifling the growth of weeds. Not only does it look good, but it works well for your garden.

DIY dreams

When we say that gravel is versatile, we mean it! If your patio is starting to look a bit tired but the price of relaying it is daunting, then you could consider a gravel patio. This is a great way to bring new life to the patio area of your garden - we have a multitude of colours that can help bring your patio to life. Here at D Price & Sons, we offer a range of gravel, including the luxurious red granite or the Cotswold stone. Whatever your style you can make it your own! You can create a lovely and vibrant space to either host your loved ones on warm sunny days or keep it all to yourself and create a peaceful spot to unwind and relax in the sun.

Entertaining the little ones

If you are already thinking ahead to activities for the children in the summer then we may just have the answer. You may already have a children’s play area inside your home, so why not create one outdoors? Our play grade bark is perfect for creating an outdoor play area so the kids can play outside, have fun and stay safe on the soft surface. This is also perfect for when your child has their friends over to play. If you are concerned about tying this into the rest of your garden, then why not incorporate some of the bark into your flower borders and flower beds? This gives your garden a wonderful natural finish while creating a coherent garden theme!
