SPRUCE UP YOUR GARDEN THIS SUMMER

Now the weather seems to be less wet!, the joys of winter and rain. We’ve started decluttering the garden and trying to get it ready for summer and spring.


I am definitely guilty of using the garden as a dumping ground so when the time comes to use it - it is in absolute chaos. Is anyone else like that?

Luckily the garden is concrete so it doesn’t look like a scene from the jungle book , but we do have a massive hedge on one side that is seriously over grown , and the back is fenced which looks over a farm and is absolutely gorgeous.

I love having a garden , to be able to go outside and sit with a cup of tea and just relax and unwind is something that is definitely taken for granted .

I made the mistake of not covering up the furniture over the Xmas period and didn’t bring half of the chairs and covers inside the shed so a lot of the garden furniture is quite damaged, which is a shame , but that does mean I am on the look out for some lovely garden pieces.

I’ve had a look online as I love a good online shop and the first thing that caught my eye was a hammock. We loved lounging about in the hammocks in turkey when we was on holiday a few years ago and I would absolutely love one in the garden .

The girls would never be out of it I’m sure . Tropilex have got a huge range of them on their site including a family sized one , which would be great for us and they range from £79.99 which I was expecting the price to be a lot more .

Hammock Giant have some lovely ones too. Whether you are after one with a stand or fancy fixing one to a tree. We use to have a huge tree in the house we lived in years ago. Would of been perfect for a tree hammock.

I’d love a fire centrepiece for the  evenings too- marshmallows by the fire and snuggles with the girls in our new hammocks, with plenty of pillows!. You can purchase matching pillows from the sites which is always a bonus :)

I’d love to know if your garden is summer ready and if not what are your plans on sprucing yours up? :)

  1. Summer ready? Which summer are we talking about? Mine could be ready by maybe 2030!

    If I’m really lucky x

  2. My new home is going to have a garden so the idea of having a hammock to relax on in summer is very appealing to me. I will have to get one with a stand, as I won't have trees in the garden.

  3. We always tidy the garden before winter sets in so it's not too bad. Can't wait for drier weather so I can cut the grass, I love spring!

  4. We're moving in a month or two and while the garden isn't our priority I do want to get a good table and chairs so we can at least enjoy our first summer in the house x

  5. Ive got similar thoughts, we lost out trampolines in the storm this winter, some of the furniture is looking a big weathered, this kids love playing in the garden so im looking for certain bits for the garden, ive always wanted one of those outdoor heather lights.

  6. Getting the garden summer ready is definitely on my to do list once this stormy weather stops! Our garden is quite small so we have to be careful with what we buy but I would love a hammock if we had more space! This year I am going to utilise the fence space and maybe create a water wall and chalk board wall for the kids.

  7. Neither of us are gardeners so have a gardener who comes in weekly to keep things tidy

  8. It's always nice to spend time in the garden. I know what you mean about a bit of a dumping ground though...a hammock would be a cool addition xx

  9. It is funny reading your first sentence, having just had the latest storm to pass over, and here in The North of The North, we had horizontal ice flying through the air, with a few cats and dogs! But yes, very different last week. I was looking at our garden and how it has been demolished by winter. We live by the sea, so get strong winds, and the garden always ends up a mess. Then we got this storm, and I gave up all hope. I'm going to wait until next month and start the usual clean up and preparing for Spring. Looking forward to it though.

  10. I would love a hammock. I really wish we get our garden done this summer. It’s been such a nightmare with the neighbours having the biggest trees and not maintaining them. Summer and gardens are just a perfect pair

    I am definitely going to be giving my garden a spruce up come summer - I love spending time in it in the sunshine!

  12. I'd love a hammock for the garden during the summer! I'm definitely going to be getting some new furniture and stuff for the garden for the sunnier months.

  13. Our garden is more of a yard and definitely needs some TLC to get summer ready, I'm planning on repainting the decking and the fence and then filling it with pots of plants.
