Transforming your garden into a visually pleasing and functional space is easier than you might imagine when you hire a team of professional landscapers. At Essex Landscape Brothers, we have renovated gardens of all shapes and sizes over the years, turning many people’s visions for their outdoor areas into stunning realities. Read on to discover our top garden transformation tips.
Visualise your dream garden
One of the first steps to take when transforming your garden is to visualise what you want it to look and feel like. Are you envisioning a serene and relaxing retreat, a colourful oasis filled with vibrant flowers, or a family-friendly play area? Your vision for the space will help to determine the finished result. If you’re struggling for inspiration, talk to our experienced garden landscapers in Maldon – we’re full of ideas that we’re more than happy to share with you.
Choose the right plants
Selecting the right plants is a key step in transforming your garden. You’ll need to consider various factors ranging from climate and soil type to maintenance preferences. At Essex Landscape Brothers, we recommend opting for a mix of perennial and annual plants, shrubs and trees. This should provide all-year-round colour and interest.
Create functional zones to suit your lifestyle
When renovating your garden, consider what purpose you want it to serve. Think about your lifestyle and what you enjoy doing in it. If you enjoy outdoor dining and socialising, you might choose to install a patio or decking, or if you have children, you might decide to have artificial grass laid to provide a safe and durable surface for them to play on. Many people opt to have separate areas for dining, relaxation, play, and gardening, with each zone flowing seamlessly into the next.
Install outdoor lighting
Outdoor lighting can allow you to enjoy your garden even when the sun goes down, turning it into a magical wonderland. Professional landscapers will be able to assist with installing lighting fixtures, including offering expert advice on where they could be positioned for maximum effect. Illuminate walkways with path lights, showcase your plants and trees with uplights, and add string lights to water features or other focal points such as sculptures or gazebos.
Carry out regular maintenance
When it comes to transforming your garden, we can’t overstate the importance of carrying out regular maintenance. A newly landscaped garden will look fantastic, but you’ll need to perform ongoing upkeep to ensure it stays that way. Carry out frequent weeding, pruning and grass cutting to preserve the visual appeal of the space. Professional landscapers can visit your garden regularly to perform all the necessary maintenance.
