Whether you have a small courtyard or acres of land, making the most of your garden enables you to create an outdoor idyll and enhance your living environment. With the potential to increase the value of your property too, redesigning your garden can have many advantageous. To get started, take a look at these four ways to make the most of your garden now:
1. Create Separate Zones
When you segment your garden into zones, you can incorporate a variety of different designs and functionalities. Perhaps you need somewhere for your kids to play, as well as a relaxing space and a thriving vegetable patch? Alternatively, you might want to reserve some space for sports and dedicate the rest of your garden to trees, shrubs and flowering plants.
You needn’t make rigid boundaries when segmenting your garden but using hard or soft landscaping to differentiate between each section will ensure you can use the space for as many purposes as you like.
2. Add a Deck
Adding a deck to your property can increase your living space and give you the flexibility to enjoy an indoor-outdoor environment. With sliding or trifold doors, for example, a deck can become an extension of your kitchen or living area. From relaxed afternoons in the sun to al fresco dinners with friends, a deck gives you the opportunity to use your garden more often.

3. Make It Weatherproof
If you only tend to use your garden in spring or summer, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to enjoy the changing seasons. Adding some extra features to your garden can make it useable at any time of year. A weatherproof awning can protect you from rain showers and the glaring sun, for example, while a garden room gives you a covered space that can be decorated any way you choose.
By installing portable outdoor heaters on your property, you can even add a little extra warmth to your garden and enjoy your surroundings even when the temperature drops.
4. Incorporate Exterior Lighting
Adding exterior lighting to your garden can be easier than you think. With solar paneled lights, you needn’t worry about adapting your power network. Instead, you can simply affix lights to the exterior of your property or garden fences and illuminate the space. Alternatively, choose battery or solar lights that can be pushed into the ground for a hassle-free way to make the most of your garden.
Redesigning Your Garden
Making significant changes to your garden can be a big undertaking, so don’t hesitate to seek professional help when you need to. With input from experienced landscapers or talented fence builders, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to transform any outdoor space into your dream garden.
