Plant Some Flowers
An easy way to get some vibrance and colour into your garden is with flowers, there are many options of all different colours you can choose from. There are a few options for you when it comes to planting your flowers, you can set up a big flower bed and plant them all together. Or you can plant them into pots and this allows you to change around your garden more and also have flowers even if you do not have much space.
Install a Deck Or Patio
If you are looking to make a space for relaxing in your garden that is lower maintenance than tending a lawn then a deck or patio could be for you. With a deck or patio you will have an area where you can put garden furniture and barbecues etc. Giving you a great space for those summer days, you will still need to maintain such as maintaining the deck with varnish or cleaning and weeding your patio and cleaning it. But for some this is easier than having a lawn to maintain.
Get a Covering
This can go with your patio or deck should you think you need one and that is installing a Pergola or Canopy. By getting a covering you are able to be outside enjoying your garden no matter the weather. You can get coverings with retractable roofs or if you are looking to build one cheaper then one with corrugated pvc sheets, both will do the job depending on your needs.
Get a Pool Or Hot Tub
