Spring Garden Inspiration

Facebooktwitterpinterestinstagram

Spring is soon to be upon us and I for one cannot wait.  It’s my favourite time of year, the nights begin to get lighter and the weather (hopefully) starts to improve.  At this time of year our thoughts turn to ‘Spring cleaning’ our garden, saving it from its dishevelled Winter state!

I love getting the girls outside into the garden, we don’t have a huge space but it’s enough for them to have fun and explore in.  This year Hubs and I have decided to revamp our outdoor space, our aim is inject a bit of adult into our extremely child friendly garden.  I would really love to have a corner to myself where I can read, work and relax with a glass of fizz on those long Summer nights!

Perusing over many Pinterest Pins and Instagram profiles has given me an idea of what I would like.  Here are some of the best bits I found along the way!

A Rattan Daybed

I adore this Rattan Daybed from Fishpools, it looks so relaxing and would be a perfect addition to our garden.  I’m looking out of the window as I write, planning where to put it! I think the children would love to spend some time on this too.

Garden Relaxer Chairs

Now that my two girls are old enough to play together, it’s so nice to be able to sit back for a little while and watch them, without having to hang over them constantly.  I love these relaxer chairs from John Lewis, also perfect for Hub’s and I to chill out on after a long day of work and/or parenting!

Outdoor Family Dining Set

There’s nothing better than eating meals outside when the weather is nice, especially if it’s been cooked on the BBQ!  We have a very old and tired dining set, it just has to be replaced.  This drop leaf number is great for setting extra places when a BBQ turns into a party, the more the merrier I say!

Patio Heater

Once the sun goes in, it would be nice to stay outside without shivering!  Adding a patio heater would mean that Hubs and I could sit out and watch the stars, instead of retreating to watch Coronation Street.  Who said romance was dead!?  I love the shape of this pyramid patio heater from Bridgeman.

Do you love Spring?  Are you planning on making any changes to your garden this year?  Do you already have the garden of your dreams?

    Such lovely things, I like the idea of a patio heater, it often gets cold at night when it is still nice to be out. #MarvMondays

    We have spent the last ten years that we have lived in our house turning our garden into the dream garden. We’re not quite there yet. The kids have a play house and a trampoline (hidden in a corner thankfully) and last year we cleared out a large area at the bottom for a big climbing frame. It’s amazing for the kids but I’m still not happy with the grown up areas. I love all the rattan furniture in your link, maybe it’s our turn to get something for the garden this year. The daybed could be a winner!

      The kids toys just seem to take precedence don’t they! I hope you get your area sorted soon so you can chill out and relax in it! Thanks for stopping by x

    Oooh some lovely ideas. Now the weather is improving (slightly) I’ve been thinking about what I can do with the garden. I need it to be child friendly but I want it to be me friendly too haha. I’m not quite sure how to get the balance right yet. Ha. I love the day bed #TriumphantTales

    That day bed is gorgeous. I would definitely find a spot for that in my garden. We added some ratton furniture last year, it was the best thing. It’s a great chill out space for everyone. #marvmondays

    we have a super tiny garden that having a table and chairs is about all we could do so we couldnt do any of this, but both my parents and in laws have stunning big gardens with ponds, swings, trampolines and garden swings. i love how we all used to browse pinterest over cute outfits, cats and new haircuts whereas now we all gush over pretty homes and gardens!
