Spring is a great time to freshen up your outdoor seating area, getting everything spick and span ready for the coming months. Hopefully, the weather will allow plenty of al fresco entertaining and the chance to sit and relax in your outdoor space.
1. Tidy up the foliage
Clip or trim your shrubs in time for the growing season. This will encourage them to grow fuller and with more body. Look at adding more, and plan ahead for hanging baskets and planters.
2. Pay attention to fencing
The wind and rain may have weathered your fencing, so now is the perfect time to look at giving it a lick of paint or stain. Adding a splash of colour on fences and outside walls can instantly transform your outdoor area into something special.
3. Add a fire pit
If you don’t already have one, think about installing a fire pit. They are perfect for socialising on chilly evenings and can be used year round, weather permitting. There’s nothing nicer than relaxing with friends around a roaring fire.
4. Update your outdoor furniture
It might be time for a change if your outdoor furniture is looking a little tired. A new set of rattan garden furniture might be just what your outdoor seating area needs to spruce it up.
5. Creative lighting
Post lighting, wall lights, low-level lighting, candles or fairy lights – whatever lighting you choose will add atmosphere and ambiance to your outside space. Carefully placed, lighting is a great way to show off all your hard work, and create a space safe to use all year round.
