Once the cold weather fades and the sun starts to come out, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to renovate your garden. Whether you want to make a few small changes or renovate your garden completely, the first sign of sun is the best time to get started in order to make the most of the good weather.
Although it would be nice to have an unlimited budget to be able to work with, we understand that a lot of the time that’s just not the case. With that in mind, here are 6 ways to spruce up your garden on a budget:
Paint Your Old Plant Pots And Plant New Plants
If you want to add a little bit of colour or class to your garden, a really simple solution is to paint your old plant pots, then replant new plants. Adding that little bit of colour could really help to brighten up your whole outdoor space, making it feel as though you’ve made some massive changes (when secretly all you’ve done is add a few coats of paint).
Add A Stepping Stone Pathway
A simple way to spruce up your garden could be to add a stone pathway, especially as stepping stones are inexpensive when you get them from your local garden centre. Once you’ve got them home they’re super easy to install as all you have to do is place them exactly where you need them to be. Nature will do the rest for you.
Upgrade To Artificial Grass
If you want something that is low maintenance and will make your grass look incredible all year round, why not consider using artificial grass? You don’t have to mow it, it doesn’t go brown during the summer and it’s incredibly easy to clean – what could be better?

Add Fairy Lights For A Magical Touch
Although it may seem simple, adding fairy lights to your garden is a great way to give it a magical feel. Often people like to wrap them around their gazebo, over their decking or fencing or simply put them dotted throughout their flowerbeds.
Get Rid Of Weeds And Rubbish
You’ll be surprised the difference clearing out all of your weeds and rubbish can do, so it’s worth getting rid of these before you consider making any major changes to your garden.
Powerwash Your Patio
Again, you will be amazed at how different your patio will look after you’ve washed it down with a powerwash. The intense pressure will get rid of all of the dirt that has built up over winter, making it look brand new within minutes. If you don’t own a powerwash, there are lots of alternative methods to getting your patio cleaned – but they’re a little more on the pricey side.
