How to make the most of your outdoor space

So if you want to protect others, while still getting some outside time, here’s how you can spruce up your outdoor space, no matter how tight you are for room.

The warmer months and longer nights are upon us, offering plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.

While Covid-19 continues to impact our everyday lives, the government’s advice is still to remain at home as much as you can.

So if you want to protect others, while still getting some outside time, here’s how you can spruce up your outdoor space, no matter how tight you are for room.

Greenery is a must

If you have a big, lush garden to enjoy, this might not be a concern, but many of us have to make do with small courtyards or patios. Some in high-rise blocks might have a simple patio – or nothing at all in terms of outside space.

If your area is mostly grey, then adding splashes of green will give you the feeling of relaxation that comes with being close to nature. Pot plants, wall climbers and small veggie planters will give you something to get green-fingered over while lifting what could be a drab atmosphere.

Light it up

Built-up areas might not get huge amounts of direct sunlight, so you’ll have to brighten up things yourself.

There are a vast range of outdoor lights available now, and many are solar-powered so you don’t have to worry about buying batteries or trailing wires back to the house.

Take a seat

If you’re going to all the effort of making your outdoor space an inviting area to be, then it makes sense to add some furniture so that you can actually enjoy it.

Make sure to get your measurements exactly spot on before you splash out – that big outdoor sofa might look smart, but will it fit? If your space is particularly tight, you may want to pick up some foldable chairs, so you can clear up when going elsewhere.

Use zoning

Draw up a plan of your outdoor space before you start filling it with plants and furniture. Splitting off little areas for greenery, sitting, and other items like firepits or barbecues will bring a good sense of order to the area.

It’s a place you’ll likely want to sit back and relax, so cramming it with too many items that are fighting for space is a big no-no.

Add a bit of you

It’s your spot after all!

Find ornaments and accessories that speak to your personality, and truly make it a sanctuary that you can slip away to when the sun is out.
