If you have pets that live or are able to go outdoors then why not give them a garden that will keep them active and content. Your beloved pet will enjoy shaded areas, things to climb and places to play hide and seek. Also review the plants you have outside, remove any that are poisonous and replace them with any number of pet-friendly plants.
Instead of seeing your garden as a jumble, simply create a focal point in the garden. You can do this by adding a bird table, bird bath, pond, water fountain or even a sculpture. Place it somewhere in the garden that you can see it from a window of the house or from a seating area. It will help draw your eye down the garden taking in its splendour, and depending on what you use could be a great talking point.
No garden is complete without some form of lighting, even better if it’s solar lighting. You can buy string lights to go along the top of your fencing, rope lights to meander up the garden creating a new path or highlighting the edge of your lawn, you can even use solar lanterns in your containers. This will not only make your garden beautiful at night but solar lights are good for the environment.
If your existing plants have become tired, mis-shapen or no longer have an abundance of flowers like they used to, then simply remove them and replace with either the same type of plant that will grow and bloom like its predecessors originally did or opt for replacing it with something new, maybe a new shape , new colour or even with an interesting name you like.
