WHETHER you have a pint-sized plot or a couple of acres, it’s important to make the most out of the space so you can enjoy all the health benefits of spending time outdoors.
Growing your own fruit and vegetables, dining al fresco and having a standout water feature are just some of the things you can achieve if you organise it well, regardless of the size.
Installing structures in your garden are just one way to make your outdoor space feel like home.
Especially if you are blessed to be living in Spain, there’s no better way to make the most of the glorious weather than by spending as much time outside as possible.
Outdoor kitchens are growing in popularity, with the focus on special areas for cooking, eating and entertaining becoming a must have feature.
You can now get special ‘Plug and Play’ pergolas which have their own lighting, heating and drainage systems so you may never need to set foot inside your house again – until it starts raining that is!
Eco friendly gardens – which are designed to help out the environment and attract wildlife – are predicted to be the next big thing for 2018 and allow you to get your fingers even more green.
They are remarkably easy to create; just plant more native plants local to your area, use less pesticides and bring in more locally sourced materials when decorating.
Growing your food will also help towards this end, as it will help cut down emissions produced transporting food.
You will also have access to your own fresh, organic produce that will save you money off your monthly shopping bill.
