This year I am on a mission to redecorate, so far I have only done my bedroom but with Spring around the corner I have started to think about our garden.
At the moment it is flagged and gravelled with borders of out of control bushes and trees. I would love to make it more toddler friendly so we can play out in the Summer. I enjoy gardening but I don’t have the time to be maintaining it.
These artificial flowers add a touch of colour with a UV-resistant wicker-effect finish hanging basket. No need for feeding or worrying about watering, it could be kept up all year round or changed seasonally to keep it inkeeping with the time of the year. Love The Sales, £29.99
I love the look of Little Tikes Go Green Playhouse, £249.99 (currently £212.50). I really want to get this for Lucas. My Dad has a garden centre and my brother is a landscape gardener so I definitely want to try and get Lucas enthusiastic about it. It also looks great to learn about recycling and solar power. Within its many features is a recycling centre with removable bins, water reservoir leading to a rain barrel, solar powered light, roof section that can be filled with soil to grow grass (like a green roof), planting box where you can grow flowers and vegetables and a real working sink where water comes from the rain barrel.
Natural artificial grass, £14.99 square metre. I am an advertisers dream and have chosen this purely because its name is natural. Apparantly reproducing the organic features of grass in a gorgeous blend of colour tones and realistic textures. The 3 colours of the yarn create an authentic canvas, whilst the smooth and delicate surface, alongside the 30mm thickness and the high density tufting feels luxurious underfoot and almost silky to the touch. No mowing the lawn and a soft surface for Lucas to play…sounds good to me!
I adore rattan furniture, we have always had it in my parents garden and when we do buy some for ourselves I want to invest in some quality furniture to last us. The rattan cube chairs and footstools store neatly away under the table, providing a compact storage solution. Luxurious 6cm thick cushions are also included as well as a waterproof cover. This Barcelona set is currently £749 and comes with 5 years warranty.
In our borders I would love to have a rockery with herb plants interspersed. I think I would leave that to my brother to design for us.
What do you think of my list? Are you an avid gardener or would you go for the easier options?x
