Gardens are an important part of our lives. They give us space to relax and unwind outdoors, and the satisfaction of seeing the landscape change with the seasons. Many studies have shown that gardens and outdoor spaces improve our mood and wellbeing, and a great garden can just lift our spirits.
We have been helping create inspired outdoor spaces for over 20 years. Here are a few ideas on how you can make the most of your outdoor space.
A Space To De-Stress & Relax
Many studies suggest that spending time outdoors can help alleviate stress, as well as improving mental wellbeing and mood. A garden designed and created with your needs in mind, can bring all the benefits of spending time in nature into the comfort of your own home.
Screening & Privacy
You can create privacy in your garden by planting mature hedging to give you instant screening. Buying pre-grown hedges, such as our Practical Instant Hedge™ ensures that you have a solution to create a private, secure garden without waiting for small plants to grow into a hedge.
Use Instant Hedge To Make The Most Of Your Outdoor Space
Using Instant Hedge to section off areas in your garden is easy. The production method of Practical Instant Hedge™ for example, ensures it is easy to handle, because it is pre-grown in 1m troughs and there’s no worry about “transplant” shock.
Here are just a few ideas for creating unique spaces in your garden
- Outdoor lounge
- Sheltered Dining Area
- Children’s play area
- Secret garden
Use of Colours
An evergreen hedge isn’t just one colour, Practical Instant Hedge™ comes in many different varieties to suit your individual taste. If you like bright colours, then the apple green leaves of Griselinia could be your favourite. If shiny leaves are more your thing, then its Common Laurel. For classic elegance, nothing can really beat the traditional Yew. Or if subtle greys is what your garden needs, then Elaeagnus would be perfect. There are many more varieties of instant hedge that will help make your garden the perfect space.
We hope this has given you some ideas about how to make the most of your outdoor space. If you would like to know more about what makes our Practical Instant Hedge™ special, please look our projects and blogs.
