Looking to spruce up your garden this summer? Here are some garden makeover ideas you’re bound to love – big and small – that you can do this weekend to make a big impact!
Update your lawn with artificial grass
If you’re getting frustrated with looking after your lawn, the best kind of garden makeover might just be replacing it. Artificial grass has come a long way in the past few years and is a great way to get a beautiful lawn without the headaches. No more mowing. No more watering. No more patching. No more weeding. No more draining. No more mud. No more hayfever. No more stress!
Just a beautiful, neat, photo-worthy lawn 365 days a year.
And you can get artificial grass from just £4.94 per square metre. It’s incredibly simple to install – you could be enjoying your lovely new lawn in time for your weekend barbeque!

Paint your fence a new colour
Fancy a change but don’t want to break your back? Painting your fence might be the perfect way to bring a brand new lease of life to your garden.
Whether you choose a bold colour, like slate grey or sage green, or just a simple wood stain, a new colour border around your garden could be just the makeover your garden needs. It might be even easier to repaint than you think with a Ronseal Fence Sprayer – so you really won’t need to break your back over it!

Build some neat garden planters
Want to bring some beautiful colour to your garden but don’t want to intrude on your lawn? Why not add a few neat planters to your space?
Wood planters look especially beautiful, tying in with most gardens, you can even paint or stain them to work in harmony with your fence or decking colour scheme.
They don’t take long to build, are incredibly handy if you like a change because you can move them around your garden until you find the perfect spot and are super low maintenance.

Create some beautiful borders
A super easy garden makeover is adding some beautiful new borders to sections of your garden. Making clean lines in between distinct areas, like paths, flower beds, lawns and decked areas can be the perfect way to make a serious impact in your outdoor space.
You can use line blocks or a chalk reel line to ensure a super straight edge when you dig out the border, or for the perfect curved border, you can lay out your current hosepipe in the curve you want and mark it with chalk powder.
Build a spot for climbing plants
If you love the look of climbing plants like wisteria or ivy, you can create a beautiful natural focal point in your garden by adding a simple trellis for these stunning plants – whether it’s in a corner, on one wall or to top your entire fence.
If you’d like to create something that really stands out, you could try either a pergola or a garden arch – either of which can be used for climbing plants and can cover seating so you can enjoy your garden under the shade and scent of your fresh flowers on hot summer days.
If you have a large garden, you can make a serious statement with a walkway pergola – which isn’t as hard to install as you might think, and can be a breath-taking addition to any garden.
Build a firepit
Once the sun goes down, your barbeque doesn’t have to end. You can bring your garden back to life with a firepit!
It’s easier than you might think – you can make a simple above ground fire pit by digging up the grass in the area you’d like the pit to be, creating a small brick wall surround and just ensuring you line the bottom with a good fire pit filler – whether it’s fireproof bricks, a steel bottom or crushed lava rock.
If you’d prefer to dig the firepit into the ground you can easily do this too – and it makes a great spot for sitting around on a summers evening.
If you’d like to add more light to your garden for the evenings you could even try adding lighting to your deck – which we had to mention since we are eDecks after all!
Install an easy deck
Decking doesn’t have to be expensive – you can get an entire decking kit for £79.99 right now at eDecks – but they really can transform your garden. No more muddy feet, just beautiful wood decking, which looks incredible on nearly any home.
Most decks are reasonably simple to install too – but the fastest and likely easiest options are decking tiles or a decking kit.
Decking tiles interlock and can give you a beautiful deck with little hassle, even for the amateur DIYer. Decking kits can come cut to size, with pergolas, rope or wood railings and are one of the simplest ways to add a deck to your garden with little hassle.
A beautiful deck can even be a great selling point for your home if you’re looking to get your house on the market.
Build a new shed
If you don’t have one, or yours is looking worse for wear, why not build a new shed? It might be the most advanced garden makeover project on this list, but it could have the biggest payoff – and might be more affordable than you think.
You can get everything you need for your new shed right here at a great price – and really let your imagination run wild because we have all the raw materials you could want!
