We love to have a good BBQ. Let's face it: Who knows how long it will last?
However, we assume it's been a while since your garden has been visited, and it's probably looking a little tired and in need of some Tender loving care. Make sure your guests don't have to deal with a yellowed and moss-filled lawn, old furniture, and a dangerous patio when they come to your garden party. Be ready and follow these tips. They'll help you make your garden look so good that your visitors won't want to leave.
Feed and trim your lawn
Is your lawn a mess? Yellow or thin on the ground? I think it might be time to give the landscaping a new look. There are certain times of the year when you should feed your lawn granular feed.
You might not need to get the lawnmower out if your lawn looks unkempt and overgrown. Check to make sure you also trim the edges. This will make sure that there is a clean line between your grass and your flowerbed. It really helps.
Tidy up your decking
During the rainy season, spills, dirt, and debris can build up over time and get stuck in the wood grains. With a little help from some cleaner and a brush, you can make your deck look much cleaner and brighter for a relatively low price.
If you don't have decking in your garden, you might want to think about getting some. It adds another dimension to your garden party. People don't have to worry about the grass being dirty or muddy feet coming into their house.
Restore and clean your patio
A lawn is a lot of work to keep up with. If you don't, you don't have to worry about it as much. It's also a good idea to give your patio a rub down or use a power washer to remove dirt and moss. if it still looks a little rough around the edges, you might want to hire our professional Patio Restoration and Cleaning service. We can make it look brand new with no work from you.
Adding baskets and pots filled with colourful flowers to your patio garden can also add some life to the space.
Uprgade your garden furniture
Cold and wet weather can also damage your wooden garden furniture. So, it's best to use a special cleaner for wooden furniture and finish it off with a wood stain and a protective coat.
Even if it is still good, maybe it's time to get a new one.
Get the lighting right
Even though lighting isn't important during the day, when it gets dark, you shouldn't have to end the party early. Lights up your surroundings as well as adding a little extra flair to your party. There are many different styles to choose from, from lanterns to fairy lights.
Instead, you could make your own tea lights with candles and mason jars. You could put them along your path, on the table, or hang them from trees. You could also put them on the ground. Of course, how clever you are will play a role.
Prepare for the worst
During a British summer, it's always a good idea to be prepared for the worst. This could be in the form of an emergency gazebo, ponchos, an umbrella, or even a clean and cosy conservatory. Don't let the British weather stop you from having fun.
