The Dream Garden

Posted on November 25th, 2015 by Poppy Gill

A garden is not only therapeutic for your soul, but also adds great ornamental value to your house. There are many ways you can capitalize on the space you have for a garden, but we have a highlighted a few below. 

Get expert advice

If you do not have prior experience in terms of gardening, sometimes it is better to get the help of a professional. There are many gardeners out there who can give you perfect insight as to how you can best utilize the land. Gardening is a science as well as an art, and it requires a knowledgeable hand to start with. For example, there are some plants that do not grow well within close proximity to each other, and there are some plants that require certain types of soil to grow in. While you may not necessarily know all these facts, a professional will be able to guide you properly.

On the other hand, if you are determined and committed, you can take the learning into your own hands. There are many books and websites on gardening available, giving step by step instructions as to how you can proceed. A proper study of these resources can help you in many ways.

A hangout spot

A garden can be filled with flowers or even a vegetable patch, but it should also be a place where you could hangout. Especially in the modern times, where people hardly get to get a break from there monotonous work, a few hours spent in the garden during a weekend can be a great form of relaxation. Moreover, this would also encourage your children to come out of the house in to the garden, thereby interacting with nature.

For an example, adding a small terrace to the garden will help you utilize it as a hangout spot, book nook and even a tea spot. Timber decking can help you in creating the perfect garden landscape to go with, which will mix beautifully with the natural environment around you.

Or you can even consider using harwood floor for a lovely patio.

Be creative

Your garden is as beautiful as it is creative. Anyone can have plants randomly strewn around. What makes a ‘real garden’ is the creative concept behind it. You must have seen many pictures on the internet as to how gardeners design and maintain their gardens in line with a particular theme. Of course, you may not be able to stick with intricate designs, but it is always a lovely idea to go with a theme.

For an example, the theme can be a rainbow – with flowers of the 7 colours beautifully arranged in order. Or it can even be built in the format of Pemberley gardens (the gardens mentioned in the famous classic novel, Pride and Prejudice). You have the absolute freedom to be as creative as you wish!

Get Timber Decking At An Affordable Price

Posted on October 21st, 2015 by Poppy Gill

If you are considering making upgrades to your house, consider adding a deck. Decks are simple platform surfaces that can be made from hardwood, composite deck, aluminum or red and cedar wood. While there are all these other forms of decking available, wood is still the material of choice. Coming back to the issue of renovating your house, you may wonder why we suggest that a deck be added to the house when there are other types of upgrade that can be done.

This is because adding a deck to your house will not only improve on its beauty; it will also improve on its value. If you are looking to sell your house in the future, having a beautifully installed deck can be a great way to add value to the property. Best of all decks can be added to a house almost anywhere. As you go about toiling with the idea of getting a deck installed, you may also have thoughts about timber decking costs. Given that this is the most common decking material, you are more likely to find it in stores.However, if cost is a problem, there are ways you can use to reduce the amount you spend on the decking.

Use an economical design

while you need a decking at your house, it doesn’t need to look like the one you saw at your friend’s house. When designing a decking, make sure to take into consideration your budget. The aim of the design phase is to get a decking design that is within budget or within a considerable budget variance.

Choice of wood

The fact that you prefer to use wood for the decking material does not mean you have to buy the most expensive one. Even if the sales assistant at the wood shop tries to convince you that a particular wood that has an expensive price is the best for your project, think of your budget and avoid to be swayed by such sweet talking. The most expensive wood may have the best quality but it may not necessarily be the one that you need. The wood that you need is one that is of very good quality but that falls within your budget.

Compare prices

There are many vendors of wood and it will be better to get the prices offered by different vendors. While the process of getting prices may seem time consuming, it may be worthwhile. When you can compare prices from different vendors, you will be able to have an idea on what a good price for your desired decking should be. This will help ensure that you are not ripped by vendors who are trying to make large profits
