Make a Plan

Think through everything carefully. Do you really want to renovate your garden? Do you have time? If the answer is YES, you should make a plan and organize. Have on your mind what do you want exactly so you wouldn’t spend money on unnecessary items and materials. However, when you go shopping, try to buy the best materials. They might seem a little expensive now, but in the long-term, you will save some money if you do this!

Garden Renovation – Recruit Some Help

You can ask your family and friends or neighbors for help. Offer your friends bbq and drinks and they will help you clean your garden, assemble the fences, lay the terrace, plant the plants, etc. You should also use self-binding gravel to make paths in your garden. The materials cost less and the labor costs are cheaper too! You will have fun spending time with your friends, renovating the garden and having a barbeque!

Paint the Fences

Garden fences require a little more care. Since they are exposed to the sun, cold, snow and rain all the time, the color usually fades and that makes the fence look bad. So, you should paint your fences once again and add a new life to your garden. However, when you go to the shop, buy paint specially designed for outdoor use. You should also buy some “warm” pain color instead of dark and boring brown. Paint your fence with blue, red or Mediterranean orange and breathe in a new life into your garden!

Create a Bird Feeder

Use some old dishes to make a bird feeder! Seeds for birds is very cheap and you will have it for a long time. However, it will be so nice to hear birds chirping while you are enjoying your evening alone or with your friends. After a while, the number of birds will rise and they will even exchange your alarm clock with their lovely song every morning!

Use Plastic Bottles As Containers

Did you even think of plastic bottles as containers ever? Gather some plastic bottles and carefully remove the top part. After that, put some gravel for drainage than soil and of course, put the plant of your choice! You can arrange them in circles, around the house, make paths or curved and straight lines with plastic bottles like these. Every idea will look wonderful!

Hang Up Some Baskets – Garden Renovation Ideas

Baskets with flowers and plants look wonderful and it’s also very easy to make and hang them up. You can place them on the house wall or on the fence, up, down, you name it! However, be sure to use multi-purpose compost and feed regularly with tomato food. However, the flowers you should use in these baskets depends on the place where you hang them up. If they are on the sunny side, you should use Bacopa or Surfinias. If the basket is on the shady place, you can use trailing Fuchsia or lovely Lobelia.

Make an Outdoor Bar

Sick of getting inside of the house just to get a fresh and cold drink? There is also a solution to this problem! Make a small outdoor bar in your garden and impress all of your friends and neighbors!

However, if you have a lot of leftover materials after you are done with the garden renovation, call your mover and get supplies for packing! Pack all those things that you want to keep and place them in the storage unit. You won’t have to buy a lot of stuff next year, just drive to your storage unit and get everything you need!

They also have plenty of moving services. Some of those services are:
