Now is the time to start thinking and planning your new look garden and make it all it can be while keeping in mind what you will actually use it for now and what you want to use it for in the future months or years.
If you enjoy company, then it is an absolute must that you plan somewhere where you can entertain your friends and family, whether it is for drinks around a fire pit or an alfresco area with a pizza oven and barbeque on standby.
Keeping it simple
When planning your eco-friendly garden, it is a good idea to keep it simple. The simple plans are not only easier to complete but tend to look the best when they are finished.
Being aware of the impact of the sort of eco features that you want to include in your new look garden will bring to any wildlife that currently resides or visit is a must, and there are many additions that can be installed that will not just improve the way your garden works for you but will also get your garden buzzing with happy visitors too.
The installation of a water butt to catch rainwater will definitely save on your water bills when you are regularly watering your garden. A compost area will help when you need to feed your plants or give them new soil when planting and will also give certain types of wildlife such as toads and frogs somewhere to hide that is warm, safe, damp with, let’s face it, a brilliant food source for slugs and worms.
Decking and screens
Choosing to deck an area of your garden but still be able to call it an eco-project is actually fully attainable. By using eComposite Products, which are 90% recycled (60% plastics and 30% wood with a 10% eco-friendly bonding agent), you can have an area that is both harmonized with nature but is totally usable, hardwearing, weather-resistant, and practical for today’s modern living and entertaining.
Having a decking area can bring the inside of your house outside by providing you with a platform so that your human visitors can take in the full beauty of your eco garden while enjoying a drink, and composite decking is available in an array of different colors and finishes with complementing screens to give areas of privacy or shelter from the wind, it could be the perfect finishing touch that you are looking for.
There are, believe it or not, eco and health benefits for dining outside other than it is very enjoyable for all concerned, especially if the weather is good and clement. There are many visiting creatures that benefit from the scraps that are either left on the table or are scattered across the floor.
To this end, it makes good sense to ensure that you install an eating area in your garden, maybe on your eco-friendly decking or in another area that benefits from receiving a good amount of shady light or protection from the wind.
