It’s Time To Get Outdoors
As Aussies we all love summer and enjoying time in our yards.
So whether you are planning on doing some entertainment this summer or simply lazing around with a book and playing with the kids, here are 4 quick ideas to get you enjoying your outdoor space.
- Embark on a zero cost outdoor clean-up
Start with a basic clean-up of your outdoor area.
If your home is surrounded by trees, then it’s time to remove all those dead tree limbs. They can not only cause damage to your home if you don’t get rid of them but they are also visually unappealing.
While you’re at it, prune the plants and remove weeds. Leaving them untrimmed may invite termites and trap moisture.
And the best part, this will cost you nothing!
- Control those insects
Insects, grubs, rodents, and moles naturally live in the lawn, but they can be a nuisance when you’re trying to enjoy your yard and gardens.
So apply a mild insecticide to help control the amount of insects in the lawn.
Complete eradication is not recommended since insects are still necessary and beneficial.
- Get some colour into your gardens
Pay a trip to a local nursery or even Bunnings to see what you can pick up to plant in your gardens. From disease-resistant roses and dwarf crape myrtles to fragrant ivory gardenia or even fresh herbs, you’ll definitely not run out of options.
- Outdoor home improvement inspirations
If you have the time and a budget a great local landscaper and various local tradies can help you achieve an outdoor living space perfect for your family and lifestyle enjoyment.
Some ideas include:
- An outdoor pergola or deck
- A small pool or spa
- A extended indoor-outdoor living room
- Bi-fold glass doors extending outside
- New paving
