4 tips for getting the most out of your garden


If you lead a busy life then the chances are that your garden has become somewhat of an afterthought. Gardens take a lot of maintenance, and most people shy away from making sweeping changes to their layout or undertaking big projects. A garden can be enriching, though, giving you somewhere to relax and destress among nature.


#1 Grow some fresh produce


The grow at home trend has certainly increased over the years, in part as a response to the climate crisis (and a general desire to reduce carbon footprints) and also because of the pandemic. When COVID-19 struck there was panic buying and, in some places, even food shortages. This put growing your own produce into sharper focus, and it’s a highly rewarding experience. You can start small with simple vegetables like tomatoes, carrots and potatoes, and then expand as you see fit. There are lots of reasons to love growing your own food. It encourages you to spend more time outdoors, in nature and among the open air, helps you to better understand the natural cycles of the land, cuts down on food miles and, of course, gives you some delicious produce at the end!


#2 Expand your viewing area


A beautiful garden is no use if you can’t see it! If you’ve put a lot of work into your garden or simply want a better view of nature, consider upgrading your windows to something bigger. Many proud gardeners opt for sliding glass walls. These are similar in scope to classic French doors, but they cover an entire wall and don’t have frames to interfere with the view. Glass walls like those from are an elegant solution to an obstructed view and they mean that you’ll be able to kick back at the end of a long day and enjoy your garden, even from inside the house!


#3 Add a water feature


Water features are the ultimate in Zen gardening. They come in all shapes and sizes and, while the idea of installing one might seem arduous, it’s much simpler than you think. You’ll need an active supply of water, but other than that you’re free to do as you please. Fountains make a stunning focal point, but even a simple pond has its advantages. Ponds attract wildlife including frogs and birds, and new plants will grow around the water’s edge. You might even go one step further and add low maintenance fish like koi.


#4 Build a shed to reduce clutter


Serious gardeners tend to have a lot of kit. Aside from lawnmowers and strimmers, there are also tools like shovels and forks to worry about, not to mention garden furniture that you might not have room for indoors. A cluttered garden isn’t exactly relaxing, and having tools strewn around the lawn looks chaotic. Small sheds are cheap, easy to install and give you somewhere to store all your tools. They’ll make your garden look immediately neater and, if you choose the right design, they’ll complement the natural feel you’ve cultivated.


  1. Your body has a natural detoxification system and is well-equipped to eliminate toxins on its own. But who wants to wait weeks or possibly even months until your system naturally rids itself of THC and other toxins? No one, especially if you have a crucial drug test coming up.
