There are so many ways that you can enjoy your outdoor space, but when you have a garden that’s larger than your budget, it can be a bit of an issue. Boosting your space doesn’t require you to have a huge budget to do it, but you do need a little creativity and some patience to get it right. If your garden is in dire need of a little TLC, then now is the right time to start tackling the space. Even something as simple as a tidy up can transform the entire space, so you can still breathe life into your garden: you just need to have some imagination to do it.
There are a lot of simple updates that you can do on a small budget that will make a difference, and when you have a huge garden, the task at hand can feel overwhelming. From inexpensive garden furniture ideas to outdoor styling for the most summery garden, check out these exciting ways to manage your large garden space – even when you don’t have much cash.
- Big Outlay. So, you’ve moved into a property with a large garden and you know it’s going to cost to maintain it. You’ve got some spare cash left over from the house move, so why not invest in LazyLawn? The artificial grass you can install has one cost at the start of the move into the house, but the benefits long term for your large garden are epic. One minute you have a garden you’re going to struggle to maintain, and the next, you have a garden you could hoover in the warm weather. One cost, not several.
- Plant Vegetables. A large vegetable garden is one of the most sustainable ways to manage your large garden. Not only have you got the space to plant all the food that you want to, but you can keep your garden looking healthy with the constant watering and turning and mulching.
- Electric Tools. For a large garden, a push mower is not a good idea. You need to be efficient with your garden so that you can get it tidied up in a matter of minutes not hours. Take the time to research the best garden tools and then you can ensure you can tidy your garden as and when you need.
- Rescue Wood. Wooden fences can be untidy and fall apart fairly quickly in the weather, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prevent it. When you move in, paint the fences in a weather-wearing paint, so that your garden fence remain looking amazing for longer. You don’t have to stick to ‘wooden’ colours, either – go a little outside the box and choose playful and whimsical colours.
- Light Up. Larger gardens in the evening get very dark for half of them. String outdoor solar fairy lights the length of the garden and throughout the day in the summer you’ll get to have a lit up garden the whole way around.
Managing a large garden takes patience, and you don’t have to spend much to do it. Enjoy spending time in your garden, though, you’re rather lucky to have the space!
