Your garden or outdoor space really comes into its own during the Summer months. Flowers bloom, birds sing and the sunshine basks everything in a warm and welcoming glow that entices us outside.
You would be forgiven for thinking that once the glorious days of Summer, or September heatwaves, are over that your outdoor space will become uninviting and unusable. This doesn’t have to be the case. Here, you will find some useful advice to prepare your garden for viewings during the colder months in the year.
Your garden doesn’t have to be dark and gloomy as soon as the sun goes down though. Use solar-powered lights to add a sparkle to the exterior. Just a few strings of fairy lights can turn a dark and unwelcoming garden into an inviting and cheerful one.
Many of us have Summer houses in our gardens. They are lovely places to spend time reading, resting, socialising and enjoying our hobbies. There is no need to stop using them as soon as Summer ends.
Add a few blankets to make them nice and cosy and they can be transformed from a shady place from which to enjoy your garden in the Summer, into a snug and welcoming space to enjoy your outdoors from indoors during the colder months.
Heat it up
A well placed fire pit or chiminea can provide enough warmth to take the edge off of the chill in the evenings. As the year progresses, take inspiration from Winter wonderlands and add a warm coat, a few blankets and some hot chocolate and keep socialising in your garden throughout the year.
