Small gardens are lovely, and improving, or making over one can be a fun side project to undertake. However, before you get out there shopping for accessories, plants and decorations for your garden it’s wise to take a bit of time out to plan for your project. Although creating a plan may seem boring and tedious, it will actually prove to be helpful, especially when you get the garden of your dreams, on a shoestring budget.
Firstly you need to decide how much you want to spend making over your garden. How much money can you afford to throw at the project, and what results do you expect to achieve. To work out a clearer cut budget then it’s wise you know what you are making over or improving. To do this successfully, it’s essential that you analyse your garden. What is your garden lacking or missing, and what would it benefit from? Once you have the answers to these questions you can then begin sourcing products for your project.
The garden decor marketplace is very large, and filled with lots of products from windmills to garden benches that could very easily suck up your whole budget. To ensure you don’t get drawn in to buying everything and anything, it is wise that you decide exactly what it is you want to add and use within your small garden. For example, are you thinking about how to enclose a patio, if so, what tools and equipment will you need. Or maybe you are thinking about adding a garden decoration here or there, if so what type of garden decoration? A gnome? A windmill, or maybe even a bird bath?
As products and equipment for making over your small garden can be expensive it’s wise to go shopping with blinkers on. Only shop for what you need and require to get your project completed.
