Enjoy Your Garden For Longer This Summer

Posted on by Daniel, VHL

Summer is here, the sun is out and the time for relaxing in the garden is now. There are plenty of ways you can enhance your garden to get maximum enjoyment out of it, and this article will explore some of these ways to help you improve your garden this summer.


Garden lightingAdding lighting to your garden can serve other purposes than just allowing you to stay outside even after the sun has gone down. Both the type of lighting and where you place it can have a significant effect on not only the time you can spend in the garden but the atmosphere that it creates.

Anything from fairy lights to some well-placed garden lamps can bring some much needed character to your garden and help you enjoy those summer evenings for longer.

Furniture / Fixtures

Garden shedFurniture can be a superb addition to your garden, both in a practical and aesthetic sense. It enables you to accommodate more guests comfortably when hosting social occasions, and it also adds to the look and feel of your garden, too. Flat-pack furniture is easy to assemble, so you can install it in your garden quickly and easily.

Functionality wise, sheds add a means for the secure tidying away of unused tools.

Water Features

Garden water featureWhile they may not exactly be simple to install, water features can be a brilliant and beautiful addition to any garden, especially in the summer months.

Whether you have a small, subtle feature or you opt for something larger, such as a pond, you can add new life to your garden and more variety to your surroundings.


Garden table for eatingCreate a space in your garden that you and your family or guests can sit down to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner in. There are few more relaxing experiences than enjoying a meal in the comfort of your garden (weather permitting, of course), so with careful furniture choice and placement, you can give yourself another area to enjoy when the sun’s out.
