After a long winter it’s only natural that with the first few warm weekends of the year, our thoughts turn to our gardens. Our outside space should be an area to enjoy, somewhere to spend time in. So it’s good to treat it as an extension of the home.
It’s true our British summers don’t always lend themselves to alfresco living, but that doesn’t mean our gardens should be neglected. With a little bit of thoughtful landscaping, your garden can come alive this spring.
Deck Designs for Beautiful Seating Areas
Creating a beautiful seating area in your garden is one way of making your outside space a relaxing refuge. One of the best landscape ideas to zone an area of the garden as a seating or dining space is to use decking.
You may wish to opt for traditional wooden decking, popular for its natural appeal, but if you want to create a contemporary look, consider metal decking. Don’t forget that deck lights can also be incorporated into the landscaping to create the perfect ambience.
If you’re undertaking more extensive work to your home this spring, such as extending into the garden, we recommend integrating decking into the project. Just imagine the beauty of bi-fold doors which open onto a stunning outside space, creating an infinity feel within your home.
Paving Ideas and Patio Gardens
A smart patio is an improvement in any garden. In smaller gardens, many people are opting for a complete patio garden with minimal landscaping. If you’re worried about a lack of lawn looking harsh, we can come up with landscape ideas, and we’ll be able to incorporate greenery suggestions and water features to soften the overall look.
If you don’t wish to pave your whole garden, a new patio in one area can still work wonders and smarten up your outdoor space, as can a new garden path. We can advise on what type of patio will suit both your landscaping tastes and lifestyle.
Sometimes you’ll need planning permission needed for impermeable surfaces and we are happy to help draw up the plans and obtain permission for the likes of concrete, block paving or tarmac.

Sometimes all that’s needed to tidy up your garden ready for springtime is a section of new fencing or a smart new garden gate. Or you might want to think about some terracing.
