Make the Most Out of Your Garden This Summer
Are you looking to make the most out of your garden during the warm summer months? Here in Somerset, we are lucky to have an abundance of wildlife and nature. Many homeowners are fortunate to also have a garden, and this space can be designed to enjoy summertime outside. With a few fresh ideas, you can make the most out of your garden this summer.
With the warm weather and lighter evenings, summer is when we spend more time in our gardens. Whether it’s for relaxing after work, playing with the children, or having barbeques with friends, we all want our garden to be a comforting and enjoyable environment. At Majestic Designs, we understand how to transform a garden space to suit the layout of your home and your aesthetic vision.
Five Ideas to Help You Make the Most Out of Your Garden
Create a Wildlife Friendly Garden
Whilst a freshly mown lawn creates a great ambience outside to relax with friends, you can create a garden that is also wildlife friendly. A wildlife friendly garden connects you more closely to nature, providing a sense of enjoyment to your outside space. Even if your garden is small, you can plant wildflowers and create wildlife corridors. These natural spaces allow for a full range of species to share the garden with you. You may start seeing an entire range of birds and even hedgehogs in your garden.
Install a Veranda
A veranda is an excellent way to extend your home and create an outdoor sheltered living space. Suitable in all weather conditions, a veranda provides shelter whilst still maximizing light and airflow. This outdoor space can feel like you are in the garden, even though you are sheltered from the elements. It gives you and your family a chance to spend quality time in the cool of your veranda, whilst also benefiting from fresh air.
A veranda provides cover so you can still enjoy a barbeque with friends and family, even if it’s raining. Normally installed as a cover for an external patio area, a veranda can make a resourceful addition to your home. With the right bifold or patio door, it can create a continuous transition from indoors to outside. A veranda is also a perfect cover between garages and outbuildings. At Majestic Designs, we engineer verandas with double glazing in our state-of-the-art factories, to protect you and your family from harmful UV rays. You also have the choice of tinted glass and anti-glare options.
Replace Your Decking
Your patio area is where you spend most of your time relaxing in the sun or enjoying a meal with family during the summer months. By making it as attractive as possible, you will transform the whole feel of your garden. Traditional wood decking is vulnerable to moisture and variable weather. By replacing your decking, you ensure that the deck is safe and aesthetically pleasing, allowing you to enjoy your garden this summer.
Install Patio Doors
Whether you prefer bifold or sliding doors, patio doors are an excellent way to connect your interior and exterior space at home. On warm summer days, open your patio doors to join indoors with outdoors. Patios can really freshen up your home and transform your property and garden. They deliver expansive views of your garden with large panes of uninterrupted glass. When opened, one door slides in front of the other providing outdoor access. This is a practical and stylish idea to make the most out of your garden this summer.
You can choose a classic style with modern conveniences such as high energy efficiency ratings and secure mechanisms. Available in a range of colours and styles to suit your property, Majestic Designs engineer bespoke patio door frames from your choice of uPVC or aluminium. In the summer, installing patio doors creates the perfect environment for small intimate dinners or large parties. Even with the doors closed, you can still maximise light within your home and enjoy views of your garden space.
Freshen Up Paintwork
Painting your shed, fence, or rendered walls will brighten up your garden. If you have a veranda or patio, freshening up the paintwork will complement these areas and make your garden look more attractive so you can enjoy dinner with family or friends outdoors. It will also help protect your home from the elements and save you money on replacements and repairs.
Whatever the weather, enjoying your garden to the fullest is important during the summer months. Your garden during the winter months will have taken a pounding from the wet and windy weather. Now the warmer weather has arrived, it’s time to spruce up the paintwork and make everything look renewed.
Taking some time out and relaxing in the garden with a cold drink is much more pleasant in a space that is well kept and attractive. Tired and cracked paintwork on the exterior of your home or garden walls just doesn’t feel good. The masonry of your home exterior needs some attention and care. It’s important to ensure your brickwork is protected from all weather, and coloured walls can bring a contemporary feel to your garden.
What Makes a Great Summer Garden?
A great summer garden is a space where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy time with friends and family. For some, it is a space away from the house to be with plants and nature, which has proven to benefit our health. The summers here in Somerset are great, and it’s the time of year when you can enjoy your garden to the fullest. From creating wildlife spaces to installing patios, transforming your outdoor space means you can make the most out of your garden this summer.
