  • Pollinator gardens are designed to attract bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects to your garden. They are not only beautiful but also help to support local ecosystems.

  • Check your local social media for garden-themed events. These can include garden tours, workshops and plant sales.

  • Creating a vertical garden is a great way to maximise space and add visual interest to your outdoor space, using trellises, hanging baskets or wall-mounted planters will create a stunning display.

  • Invite your family and friends over for a garden-themed party, serve garden-fresh foods, play garden themed games and enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space together.

  • A water feature can add a calming element to your garden, it also attract birds and other wildlife adding to the natural beauty of your outdoor space.
