Your garden or backyard is your own little sanctuary that you can spend your free time and relax. We all need a few minutes away from our hectic lives and your backyard is the best place to do that. Nature has its marvellous ways to heal us and hence connecting with it and enjoying the fresh air could do wonders to your stress levels. Most of you might think a backyard takes a lot of space, time, energy and money. However, if you make use of the little space you have and redesign your own way, you could have your own beautiful backyard. So here are a few ways to improve it.
When you look out the window, what do you expect to see? Obviously, it should be colourful flowers, a fountain and what not. However, the beauty of all these elements will not show if the background is a mess; that is the back wall or fence. Give a good coat of paint. Brushes could take too much time so go for a spay paint. Also let some vines grow on them. Make it a part of the garden too.
- Top dress the pots
Scrape off about 5cm layer of soil off your garden pots and include new soil. This will automatically remove the unwanted weeds of the pots and also give them a new layer of soil that would contain all nutrients. To keep them looking as good as new, continue to remove weed off the tops so that your flower plants are secure and neat. Don’t forget to water them too.
- Clean and remove clutter
Dirty looking pots, ponds or water fountains Melbourne are the worst you could possibly have in your backyard. So, take a few minutes every week to give it a good sweep and clean the other parts in detail once a month. This will also help avoid spread of disease such as dengue. Remove all unnecessary clutter. If you have buckets or basins lying around, gather them all and store them properly. It would be neater if everything has a place to be kept such as the lawn mower, water hose, bucket etc.
- Add some vegetables and fruits
There is nothing better than cooking with ingredients from your own vegetation. So, plant some fruits and vegetables to enjoy homemade cuisine. It could be great way to spend quality time with your friends and family too. Gather them around and share a dinner in your backyard. Make it a family tradition.
