Sometimes, when it comes to jobs around the house and in the garden, it’s all about the quick wins. We don’t always have the time we would like to have to dedicate a few days to really revamping our living spaces, but it’s always nice to feel as though we’re achieving something – and even the smallest change can really lift our spirits no end.
Where your outdoor spaces are concerned, there’s a lot you can do in very little time that can actually have quite a big impact on the look and feel of your garden, patio area, driveways and so on. It’s simply a matter of sitting down and deciding what you’d like to do.
You could, for example, use decorative gravel to excellent effect in some parts of the garden, laying it down over an area to instantly transform it and give it a serious facelift – with hardly any effort whatsoever. Hey presto! You’re done!
Crown lifting is also something you can do relatively quickly and easily, and this will really make a big difference to the look of your garden.
This simply involves removing the lower branches from your trees and shrubs, giving them a nicer shape and making them look a lot cleaner and tidier. It can also help make your plants healthier, because air can circulate more freely around them.
Or what about looking at the cracks between your patio or paving slabs and giving them a bit of a spruce up? Get out your weeding tools and scrape away any moss and weeds you find, then fill in the gaps using a sand and cement mix. Before you know it, everything will look like new.
