Your garden should be your own personal slice of heaven; an escape from the daily struggles and a place where you can get away from it all, literally in your own garden. No matter how much space you have to play with, your garden should be inviting and help you to clear your mind of the clutter. If you feel as though your garden has lost that spark, here are some tips to help restore it to its former glory and reignite the love you once had for it.

Take back the space

The first thing to do is to clear away any fallen branches, debris, or dead or overgrown plants to clean your garden up. Establish where you want it to begin and end, and make that space defined, so you know how much you have to work with. Set some stones as a border to decorate it up a bit for some extra flair and to give it that professional landscaper touch. A garden in a crowded space doesn’t offer a lot of peace, so make sure there’s plenty of room for your plants to grow.

Roll up your sleeves

Hiring someone to do the work for you is much easier, and while there is an added expense, the time you’ve saved is probably worth it. However, you’re trying to fall back in love with your garden, and the best way to love something is to make it yourself with plenty of care and attention. You will have so much more pride about your garden if you did everything yourself, from clearing weeds to planting new flowers, to decorating. That feeling cannot be replicated. So, throw on some old clothes you don’t mind working in and getting dirty, grab your gardening tools, maybe put on some music, and get down into the dirt yourself and try some DIY gardening.

Add something new

Maybe the reason you have fallen out of love with your garden is that it has grown stale and is in need of an upgrade. Do some research on which plants bloom in which months so your new additions will bloom at different times and stagger. This tip keeps your garden in bloom no matter what time of year it is which will help you appreciate it year-round. Also, consider planting some greenery or flowers you haven’t tried yet – learning about and caring for something new is exciting, and can be extra satisfying when it thrives.

Additionally, try adding some new decor around the garden, like a trellis, some solar powered garden lights or lawn ornaments that match your style. You can even add some comfortable furniture like waterproof bean bag chairs to make the space seem more inviting.

Don’t ignore your garden – it can be so much more than an old, forgotten pile of plants! With a bit of work and a lot of care, you can transform your garden into something new, beautiful, and ultimately magical.
