Out with the grass, in with the..

Fed up with mowing the lawn every weekend? Well why not ditch the grass completely and go for a low (or even no) maintenance garden instead? Low maintenance doesn’t have to mean boring, and some buyers may favour your property if they don’t have the greenest fingers themselves. We’ve put together our pick of the best alternative garden ideas to give you some food for thought this summer…

Patio bar

Why not become the host with the most with a bar area built into your patio? This garden is great for sociable folk who host barbecue parties on warm summer evenings, and is bound to please like minded potential buyers.

Fire pit

The nights may be chilly but don’t let that stop you from enjoying your garden. A fire pit creates a warm cosy glow and a focal point, and keeps you warm so you can enjoy your garden at any time of year. A fire pit can create a purpose for even the dullest of gardens. Just don’t forget the marshmallows for toasting!

Create a cascade of colour

This trick is great for those who want a splash of colour but don’t have much garden space – hanging pots and baskets all over a wall creates a cascade of colour for a Mediterranean courtyard feel.

For the low maintenance gardeners, opt for plants that require little attention, like wild flowers. If you’re particularly nature conscious then why not opt for bee friendly plants like Foxglove and Honeysuckle?

We hope this blog post has inspired you to make something of your outside space.
