When you move into your first home it can be so exciting, especially when you can spend your first summer in your own garden. It is such a lovely experience to throw garden parties, have the girls over for a glass of wine in the garden next to a fire pit or even just spend your mornings in the garden meditating and enjoying your morning coffee or matcha in the sunshine.

A Place To Relax

One of the things you will want in your garden to create a calming space is to have somewhere to sit and relax. You can buy so many different sets of garden seating so see what is more suited to your style and needs and see if you can fit it nicely in your garden somewhere. When you are in the peak of Summer and don’t need to worry about bad weather and rain you can also set up a more relaxing corner with things like bean bags and floor cushions. These are also great for kids when they are relaxing in the garden and need a break from the sun or to have a seat while getting refreshed with a drink.

Adding A Pool

Another option of something you could add to your garden if you have the space and don’t have one already is having a pool added. You can get it whatever size you need but be sure you are committed to keeping it clean and maintained. You will have costs like having pool cleaners out as well as pool accessories like pool covers.

Adding Plants

Plants are a great thing for a gardening lover, you may already have some amazing indoor plants you love but outdoors can take it to a whole new level. There are so many different options and things you can have in your garden. You may want to have the space to start becoming more self-sufficient and using the space to not only grow things but nourish yourself. 

You can easily grow things like herbs and lettuce in any space. You can also plant seasonal fruit and vegetables to give you an abundance to harvest all year round. You don’t always need a huge space either. Plants like peas, beans and tomatoes all grow upwards so don’t need a big space to thrive. You can grow things like strawberries in the summer and Brussels sprouts in the winter.

Dining In The Garden

Dining outside is certainly one of the more calming dinner atmospheres, especially when inviting friends over. You can enjoy your meals while the kids play in the background, watch the sunset and even cook in the garden sometimes. There are different options to cook in the garden with things like having the classic barbeque or going one step further with a pizza oven or a fire pit to roast marshmallows over.

Your garden is your space to create and enjoy in your own personal way. It will be where you can make memories, grow foods, look after local wildlife and make memories with loved ones.
