Spring is here now, (thank goodness!) and for many of us it is a chance to get out into the garden and enjoy the outdoors again.
Our garden is large, but has taken a back seat on our To Do list. There are things which are of a higher priority to work on (and in) the house itself. We don’t have an unlimited budget, so the garden has taken a hit really in terms of our time, and what we can spend on it.
In one corner of the garden I want to create a focal point that is away from the house and patio area. My idea is to create a nook, almost a hideaway. I think an arbour would be perfect for this.
I love the idea of having an arbour or similar structure in the garden. Something away from the hustle and bustle of the house, in a sunny spot in our outside space. I could easily spend and hour or two with a G&T and a book somewhere like that, couldn’t you?.
The garden needs an overhaul without a doubt. I find jobs like this can get overwhelming though so I like to break them down into achievable chunks. And getting something like this set up in one corner would really give it a boost.
This outdoor seating area below completely transformed Kimberly’s garden. Not an arbour but a pergola, a gorgeous space nonetheless.
I’m going to share some of my garden plans with you here on the blog soon, I’ve drawn up plans I just need to scan them in (yes I’m old school, and still use paper and pencil).
Here’s an arbour from Amanda’s blog, I love the paint job she had done on it and it really creates a focal point in the garden. Perhaps using a corner that has just been forgotten about.
Do you have any plans for your garden this season? Do tell me in the comments!
