    With spring just around the corner, you may be starting to think about how you can get the most out of your garden. Whether you think of yourself as a gardening expert or just want to give your garden a new look, there are lots of things you can do to update it.

    While you may think that updating your garden will come at a high cost, there are many ways you can revamp your garden whilst sticking to your budget.

    Sometimes even the smallest of changes can make a big impact on how your garden looks. By taking on a few small DIY garden projects, you can transform your garden into a relaxing haven of tranquility.

    For all our top tips to transforming your garden on a budget, have a read of this.

    1. Cut back the plants and hedges

    Pruning the plants and hedges is one of the easiest ways to smarten up your garden. The best thing about this is that it won’t cost you a penny to do. Begin by getting rid of any dead or overgrown plants - plants that are overgrown or dead, can make your garden look messy and unkempt.

    If there is an overgrown plant you can’t bear to part with, dig it up and move it to a large pot or another area of the garden. When digging up the plant, make sure to be careful of the roots.

    2. Refresh flower beds and paths

    To give your garden a fresh look, neaten up your flower beds and paths. You can do this by buying new wood chippings or mulch for your flower beds and new gravel for your garden paths.

    Not only will applying new toppings to your flower beds and footpaths smarten up the look of your garden. It will also help to prevent weeds appearing as quickly.

    By adding toppings like mulch, wood chippings and gravel to your garden, it will look more polished and professional.


    As well as giving your garden a new look, by adding in an area of purpose to it, you will be more likely to keep on top of your gardening.

    Instead of creating a regular vegetable patch, build a raised one. To get started, all you need to do, is lay down a sheet of tarp where your vegetable garden will be. This will prevent weeds and grass from taking over your vegetable patch. Use wooden planks to build a small fence around your new vegetable patch, and then fill the area with good quality soil and get planting.

    4. Think about decorations and furniture

    You can bring added colour and style to your garden with some carefully thought out decorations. Adding in some simple decorative touches, like new flower pots, garden lanterns and new garden furniture, can help to give your outdoor space a new lease of life.

    To use decorations and furniture effectively, it is important to understand what works well with the style of your garden. For example, to complement a relaxed, modern garden design, invest in outdoor lanterns, grey rattan garden furniture and slate flower pots.

    Whilst new furniture and decorations may sound a little bit pricey, if you do your research and have a look online, you can find some excellent deals and bargains.
