Naturally any garden-lover is going to want a south-facing space, but unfortunately it’s not always possible depending on your property.

If the amount of sunlight able to reach your garden is being blocked due to overgrown shrubbery or large trees, you could consider the services of a local tree surgeon.

Implement Borders and Boundaries

You should plan for how you want your garden to be bordered during the renovation process, and implement shrubbery and fencing where applicable.

If you’re looking for more privacy in your garden, consider a tall fence around the perimeter if you don’t already have one. Fencing can easily be spruced up and redesigned by wood paint, whether in a traditional color or a bold, new one.

You should also consider other, small bordering when integrating more features into your garden, such as the need to separate a garden pond, for example, or perhaps a vegetable patch.

Decide What You Would Like Your Garden’s Function to Be

In order to renovate your space in the most practical way, you need to fully agree what you will be using the space for. Your renovation plans should have your needs in mind. Do you want a simplistic space with minimal fuss? Something which requires little to no maintenance? Are you creating a family-friendly space for kids, or are you looking for a personal retreat where you can hone your gardening skills?

Once you know your requirements, you can tailor your budget for the most practical installations to make your vision a reality.

Choose Your Ground Wisely

A lush, green lawn may look attractive, but will you have the means and motivation to keep on top of it? Lawn will require a lot more maintenance over time than paving stone or gravel, and often, it is the condition of the lawn which can make or break a garden.

Even if you invest in attractive features all round, your garden can look shabby if the lawn is a little overgrown. If you’re looking for a more unchanging year-round look, paving stone or decking may be the better choice.
