So many of us are upset that we are having to miss out on a number of special events that we may usually attend such as bonfire night, Christmas light switch on and Christmas markets. After the year we have all had we really could do with some Christmas cheer, but it seems that it is unlikely that there are going to be any major events in the run up to the big day. Why not invest the money you would have spent on days out around Christmas into decorations? Decorations really can brighten a place up and help you to start feeling Christmassy. There are a number of places you can get decorations from and if you do not want to venture out in to the shops then you can order almost anything online through places such as Amazon. When buying Christmas decs you do need to think about where... Read More

During the spring and summer, it is fairly easy to brighten up your garden and add a splash of colour. You can plant some beautiful flowers of all different colours to instantly add that brightness to your garden. As the months pass and autumn and winter start to set in, the flowers often start to die off and the ones that do remain are often mostly green. It is nice to keep colour in your garden all year round if possible, as bright colours are said to help make us feel happy. A new fad that has grown in popularity of the last few years is rock painting. People collect or buy rocks and paint markers and then paint rocks to look like insects, characters from a film or book or with inspiring quotes or words on.

Large bushes start to look bedraggled and in dire need of pruning, flowers in pots and planters need dead heading and bedding plants are dying off so what is the best way to get your garden ready for winter and looking good? If you are not an expert gardener, you may need to read up on the best ways to prune back shrubs because different varieties should be pruned at different times of the year. For instance, hydrangea heads should not be removed until springtime whereas lavender should be pruned back before the winter. Although some planters may still have flowering plants growing, they can often look untidy at this time of the year, so it is best to cut back any dead and dying stems and flowers. Hanging baskets...

If you want to improve your garden, consider building a garden pond. It is not only an attractive addition but can also be an interesting hobby as it will involve time spent maintaining the water quality and caring for the fish. The first thing to decide is the size and shape of your pond. If your garden is small, then obviously a small pond would be better whereas a larger garden could accommodate a larger pond with additional features such as a stream or waterfall. Many people choose a kidney shaped rather than a circular or rectangular pond as this looks more interesting. When you have decided on the size and shape of your pond you will need to give some thought as to the type of pond you want. A wildlife pond which has soft edges with lots of planting allowing frogs and toads... Read More
