Spring into summer is the perfect time to get in the garden, but what if it needs a freshen up? Like most things, trends come and go, and for gardens, it is no different. Maybe the garden is looking a little tired, or a new style would more fit a current aesthetic? Whatever the reason, a garden makeover does not need to be expensive or difficult to be pulled off.
Here are some top tips for creating a stunning garden makeover without breaking the bank!
Paint, Paint, Paint for the Garden!
There are so many things that can be transformed with paint both inside and outside of the garden, and painting is one of the fastest and budget-friendly ways to create a brand-new look.
Have a look around the garden for items that can be spruced up such as a fence, plant pots, or even the shed!
Pick a favourite colour and shade and get ready for a garden transformation!
Make sure any items that have been chosen to be painted, such as a fence, are prepped accordingly for a new coat of paint for best results. Simply sand down the wood to create an even surface before the paint is applied and enjoy the fence’s new look!
Clear and Clean the Yard
One of the best tips for a garden transformation is clearing the yard out. Taking it back to basics, remove any trash, old plants, or anything unsightly and un-useful, and dispose of it accordingly. This will give a clear canvas to work with. To go the extra mile, purchasing a low-cost pressure washer can impressively transform the ground, ridding of old debris and ingrained dirt, revealing an ‘almost good as new’ base. This will automatically transform the look of a garden for the better, giving it a new lease of life!

Remove Weeds from the Garden
Removing weeds from the garden is a very efficient and low-cost way to give a garden a boost. Not only is removing weeds great for the grass and plants, but the results can also show a much neater and more orderly garden, immediately boosting its overall appearance.
Removing weeds by hand is completely free, but weed remover is available to purchase cheaply, making it a steal to transform your garden with.
Invest in Some New Plants and Flowers
Plants and flowers are a cheap and effective way of transforming any space. They can turn a drab garden into a luscious haven. Plants don’t need to be bought first-hand either! There are plenty of pre-loved plants that would be happy to get a second life. Unlike other household and garden goods, thrift stores seldom have second-hand plants to purchase, so check places like Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist to find some garden gems in your neighbourhood!
