There’s nothing quite like the arrival of spring to remind us of the importance of outdoor space to our health, happiness and overall wellbeing.   

It’s little wonder that having a garden or outdoor space is so important to our home owners. It’s long been understood that there’s a positive relationship between green space and our wellbeing.

So, as we look forward to the brighter days of spring, we’ve been exploring ways to help you make the most of the space outside your back door and enjoy the longer, lighter days to come.

Here are our top tips…

1. Get growing

Get to your local garden centre and speak with the experts who can tell you all about the best plants to keep your garden looking lush all year round. Good Housekeeping recommends False Indigo, Phlox and Lupines.

2. Go faux

If you’re not particularly green fingered or don’t have time to tend to plants, try looking into the increasingly popular trend of going ‘faux’.

False plants aren’t what they used to be. They look far more realistic and far less plastic than in days gone by. Plus, you don’t have to lift a non-green finger to keep them looking good. It’s a trend that’s definitely worth researching.

3. Create a cover-up

We’ve had to do much socialising with our loved ones outdoors this year, and it’s made many people look towards investing in a covered area of their garden, terrace or balcony.

There are a few options here depending on budget – awnings can be professionally fitted to your home, or for a more elaborate investment take a look at pergolas and pagodas for your garden.

4. Flex your green space

How about creating an outdoor gym? A space in which you and the family can work out safely. There’s plenty of outdoor equipment on the market now.

And if you’re looking for a brand new garden in which to unleash these ideas, then get in touch! From modern apartments to spacious family houses, our homes offer plenty of natural light, outdoor space and all the room you could possibly need to live, work, play and unwind.

Talk to us today and we can tell you more about the new houses and apartments on offer in our welcoming communities.
