There’s something irresistible about spring. It might be a little cooler than summer, with a chance of showers and every now and again, but it has a freshness and an exuberance that makes you want to throw some sandwiches together and set up a picnic in the garden.
It is a wonderful time of the year and we love hearing our customers talk about how relaxing it is to kick back and unwind in your own personal, private green space. Whether you’ve got swanky decking, a cool water feature, or just a neat healthy lawn, it is time to get outside and start enjoying it.
Our customised outdoor blinds can make this easier, but they’re not the only way to perk up your outdoor living space this spring.
Give Your Garden Furniture a Makeover
If your garden furniture has seen better days, giving it a bit of a makeover will instantly lift and enhance the aesthetic of the space. Wicker items are really good for this,because they can be easily painted over in a bright, cheery colour. You could even add some simple stencils in the shape of flowers, hearts, suns, moons, or whatever else you can think of. You can guarantee that your garden furniture will be the most unique in the neighbourhood.
Consider Investing in Outdoor Heating
We think it’s a shame for garden parties and outdoor chill out drinks on the deck to have to end when the sun goes down. Imagine if you could keep chatting, socialising, and gazing at the stars for as long as you liked. This is something that outdoor heating makes possible. It can be a costly investment, compared to things like new deck furniture, but it could be worthwhile if you want to extend your enjoyment of the yard.
Choose From Our Stylish Outdoor Blinds
A cheaper alternative, of course, would be to swap the outdoor heating for our stylish outdoor blinds. They create an enclosed leisure space, which is protected from the wind and the cold. In fact, even if it’s raining out, you can retreat inside these contemporary coverings and carry on with your favourite activity. They are great for entertaining, but also equally useful for studying, drawing, dining, playing with the kids, and sheltering fragile plants.

Grow Fresh Herbs on the Deck or Patio
Speaking of plants, why not bring your home and garden together by integrating the deck or patio with the rest of the yard? It is common for people to make a real distinction between where their deck starts and their lawn begins, but a more seamless blend can look very beautiful. It is simple to achieve too; just pick out some gorgeous, leafy plants or herbs and arrange them in pretty pots around the deck and door to the house, so the garden instantly greets you when you leave. If you have custom outdoor blinds, you can protect fragile plants from the harsher elements.
