Try out different gardening methods


  • You don’t have to stick to the traditional in-ground gardening methods if it isn’t working for you. Even if it is, there are other ways you can spruce up your gardening routine.
  • You could try raised bed gardening or even hydroponic gardening (that way, you could easily shift inside when it gets chilly again). The more methods you use, the more varied your garden—it can end up being quite pleasing to the eye!

Play with lighting


  • Sure, you’ll use the sunshine when you can. But what about those cloudy days, or the nights that you want to spend some time outside? That’s when additional, calming lighting will come in handy.
  • Twinkle lights evoke fairy garden aesthetic; however, if that’s not what you’re feeling, you could add some ground lanterns and other industrial lighting fixtures.

Pay attention to the border


  • Another way to update your garden this summer has to do with the borders you have in your garden. Take a look at your flower beds and see if you can define their shape a bit more.
  • We talked above about getting artistic with some curved edges. Whether you choose to keep it straight or add some curves, make sure to define those borders—brick, stones, logs, and rocks are good choices!
  • CONCLUSIONThe outdoor area that you design is an extension of the interior. Make something exciting out of the space you’ve spent a lot of time on. You put ample work into creating a garden—make sure that you and others can enjoy the beauty of nature!
