Now that winter is out of the way and summer is right around the corner, it is the perfect time to start planning and making the arrangements for the garden redesign you’ve been putting off for the last few months.
With a garden redesign, you have so much choice and options to choose from that it can sometimes become a little overwhelming, especially if you aren’t prepared. However, if there’s one thing that most outdoor renovations try to achieve these days is a modern look and feel.
With an abundance of ways to do this, you’ll never be left asking “how?” But to make things a little bit easier for you, in this blog, we take a look at some of the more popular ways to make your garden look more modern.
So, what are we waiting for, let’s take a look…
Contemporary Garden Ideas
Pave the way
The first way that you can turn a boring back yard into a modern masterpiece is by installing some contemporary porcelain paving. Over the last decade or so, porcelain has become increasingly popular within interior and exterior renovations, providing homeowners with a modern flooring option that offers a variety of advantages over traditional natural stone products.
These include being extremely low-maintenance in that they never require sealing or polishing and are very easy to clean, needing only warm soapy water and a mop, perfect for when things get a little messy. They also offer high resistance to fades, stains and scratches and are available in a thick 20mm profile ideal for the outdoors.
With a range of styles and designs to choose from including wood-effect and natural stone, you are sure to find a porcelain tile that brings your garden into the modern era.
Deck it out
The second way that you can create a modern-looking outdoor space is by adding a contemporary deck. Combining a modern deck solution with an eye-catching design is sure to bring your garden right up to date, leaving any old design eating its dust.
For a truly modern garden, be sure to choose composite decking over traditional wood decking or plastic. With composite, you get the best of both worlds. Gorgeous, authentic aesthetics with minimal maintenance requirements, perfect for any homeowner looking to spend more time enjoying their garden and less time caring for it. And with composite decking offering warranties of up to 30 years, you’ll never have to worry about replacing your deck for three whole decades! Perfect if you’re planning for the long-term.
The best thing about adding a deck or patio to your garden is that you can put more or less anything on top of them to create a space where you, your family and guests can sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings. Here, adding some modern garden furniture is the perfect way to complement your new patio or deck. Combine this with a fire pit, patio heater or even a veranda to create space where you can enjoy your garden no matter the weather!
With many homeowners now creating gardens that mimic or extend from their interior spaces, by doing just this you can not only create a garden that looks modern but one that will feel like an extension of your home, rather than a separate space.
Try any or a combination of these ideas and you will be well on your way to creating a truly contemporary garden that you can enjoy for years to come, hassle-free!
