How to Transform Your Garden Ready for the New Seasons

March 9, 2020

If you’re an outdoorsy person and want to get the most out of your yard and garden during the spring and summer months, then the time to start sprucing up your garden is now. 
Transforming your garden from a plain old flowerbed into an inviting and beautiful space for you, your family and your friends to enjoy can be a big project or something you complete in a weekend. There are many options you can choose when upgrading or refreshing your outdoor space, so whether you have tons of space and a big budget to play with, or are working with a garden on the smaller side with a tighter budget, you can still achieve results that will “wow” you and your guests. 

Here are some tips to help you transform your garden to get it ready for the upcoming warm seasons so you can get the most out of it this summer. 
Plant more flowers
As if you would ever need to convince a gardener to plant more flowers! A cost-effective way to fill flowerbeds is to buy perennials that you can divide up during their dormant period. It’s a simple way to get your flowers to take up more space, so you don’t have to buy more flowers. Perennials that form clumps, like astrantia and hardy geraniums, work best. All you must do is remove the plant from its pot or the soil, then pull it apart into two or three clumps. Make sure each clump has some stalks and a root system so it will survive when you stick it back into the soil. Give them a good watering when you’ve replanted them. Then, repeat the process next year to grow even more plants. 
Add a water element
One of the significant ways to transform your garden is to add a water element or feature to it. You can turn a regular backyard garden into a beautiful, serene oasis that’s your own little slice of paradise just by adding a pond or fountain. With the addition of one of the Aquamax filter pumps, you can also turn your pond into a koi pond and add some fish. There are a variety of different water elements you can install, so even if you’re working with a smaller space, you can find something that works for your garden. 

Add some trees
Trees are another inexpensive way to transform your garden, considering how big they get and how long they last. Even adding just a few small trees can completely change how your garden looks and feels. You could choose decorative trees like an ornamental cherry blossom tree, or go with something that lasts all year, like an evergreen (though they do grow quite big, so make sure you have enough space for whatever you’re planting). 
Paint your fence
If your garden is up against a fence, giving that fence a fresh coat of paint in the right colour can turn it from a plain background into a focal point of your garden. The optimal colour to paint your fence is black. It makes a fantastic backdrop for the greenery and brightly coloured flowers you’ve planted in your garden, as it helps the fence “disappear” into the scenery.
