If you are far from happy with the way your garden looks, but don’t want to spend a fortune calling in a landscape gardener, you can certainly handle the project yourself, providing you have the right tools and materials. Here are a few tips to help ensure that your garden renovation goes smoothly.
- Create a Floor Plan – A large sheet of A3 paper would be fine for planning your garden design, and like a professional gardener would, start with what you have. There are bound to be some aspects of the outdoor space that you would like to retain, then you can add features like pathways, rockeries or even a garden pond.
- Waste Removal – Whatever the design, there will be a lot of waste and skip prices in Knaresborough are not as high as you might think. Order a suitably sized skip to be dropped off when you are about to start work, and when you have finished, give them a call and they will collect it.
- Tools & Equipment – You will need the right tools, such as shovels, spades, rakes, a wheelbarrow and perhaps some power tools. The tools you need depends on the scope of the work, so do plan accordingly, and if you have a helper, this would make light work of the project.
- Free Online Resources – If you are unsure how to lay turf or build a retaining wall, there are YouTube videos that cover just about everything, so make sure you know exactly what you are doing prior to starting work.
The spring will soon be upon us and this is the perfect time to carry out the garden revamp, so make your plan, cost the project and don’t forget to hire a skip.
