The garden is a significant part of your home, often easily transformed into an area for entertaining friends or relaxing in the sun, as well as helping to keep your property safe and secure. By selecting your fencing carefully you can either keep your home private and safe from intrusion or alternatively you may instead opt for decorative fencing that will mark your property boundaries yet still allow you to look out into the surrounding neighbourhood.
Garden landscaping can create a haven away from the stresses of everyday life, where you can relax in the haven of your garden. Many people enjoy a corner of the garden where they can entertain or dine al fresco, such as a patio or decking area that is easily transformed in the evenings with lighting and outdoor heating. This is an easy way to extend your home into the garden, making use of the extra space, especially on those long summer evenings.
There are plenty of uses for a garden area. Nature lovers may want to create a haven for birds and other wildlife such as hedgehogs and squirrels, providing an interesting pastime as you spot the different creatures in your garden. In today’s climate where everyone has to try to make cutbacks in spending, creating a vegetable patch where you can grow your own vegetables can be immensely satisfying as you can enjoy your very own produce from your own garden, at a fraction of the cost. The equipment required is minimal and most can be bought cheaply at DIY stores.
Here at Wickes we stock all you require for all garden landscaping and garden projects from plant food to fencing, and all at reasonable prices so you can create the garden of your dreams at an affordable price. We also have knowledgeable staff who are able to offer advice for your garden project so you can keep costs within your budget.
Garden landscaping can give you an outdoor area that is both safe and secure, whether you live alone or have children and pets that need some outdoor space. If you do have children and pets you may want to consider a hard wearing lawn as well as hardy plants that won’t be easily damaged by a football or outdoor toys. The area you create may require a little maintenance, such as a protective paint for decking and fences, which is also available in a variety of colours, again adding a personal feature to your garden.
It is essential to have a few basic garden tools to maintain the outdoor area such as a lawn mower, spade and garden fork. There are other tools available that you may want to purchase depending upon the size of your garden area and fencing. Power tools are especially useful for projects such as hedges, conifers and trees and shrubs that require hard pruning.
Using a reputable store such as Wickes where you can purchase all the necessary equipment for your garden landscaping and fencing project will ensure quality as well as reliability at an affordable price.
