If your garden furniture’s looking a little rundown and your grass is overgrown, it could be time to step out and spruce up your outside space. A few changes here and there could make all the difference, so here are four renovation ideas that’ll revamp the exterior of your home.




Trim back trees


Trees can start off neat and beautiful but soon swamp your garden and home. While they provide plenty of shade during the warm summer months they can also block the sun completely and take up much needed space, so why not call in a company like 404 Cut Tree to give them a prune? Highly qualified arborists will remove dead or dominant branches, make trees safe after storm damage and even remove them completely, depending on your preferences and needs.




Install a water feature


The sound of running water can be wonderfully relaxing, especially on a hot summers day when you’re lying out in the sun or having a few cold beverages al fresco. With this in mind, wouldn’t it be fun to install a water feature, be it a pottery waterfall or a quaint little rock pool? There are endless design options out there that’ll suit large gardens but if you’ve got a small outside area don’t be put off, there’s always room for a stunning water feature. Creating something yourself is much easier than you might think, try building a small but sweet pot fountain – it’s a great DIY project for you and will look great in your outdoor space when you are finished.




Invest in outdoor storage solutions


One of the best ways to renovate your garden, and keep it looking neat and classy, is to invest in some quality outdoor storage solutions. While the garden shed is notoriously trustworthy, there are plenty of other more modern alternatives, including swing benches with inbuilt storage, outside cupboards, beautiful wooden log stores and much more – offering you plenty of choice. They also ensure everything you need is easily accessible and ready to go, whatever time of year.




Swap grass for paving or stones


If you’re tired of weeding, mowing and waiting for the lawn to dry out after a storm, you could always research gravel landscaping ideas for a completely different look. Not only will the switch from grass to stone be incredibly easy to maintain but it’ll also look stunning when combined with wooden decking, wicker furniture and stepping-stones. Throw in the odd flower feature, neat hedgerows and colourful plant pots and you’ll be onto a winner.
