I love being outdoors and spend as much time as I can in the fresh air. I do know that some of you only venture out in the garden when the weather is warmer. Often the garden can look a little tired and neglected. I know how easily it can be to spend a fortune on gardens, yet it can sometime make little impact. These are my top ideas for you to create the perfect summer space on a budget.
Every year at Christmas I love how our house is transformed with the simple use of lighting and every year I think. I must put up lights in the garden this summer. Well this year I’m going to do it. They add a great atmosphere to any space. Making it just perfect for entertaining and enjoying the warmer evenings. This set of outdoor bulb string lights is 25ft long and at £29.99 is a good buy to get the party started.
