The holidays are approaching. This could be the perfect time get out into the garden and catch a case of the green thumb or catch up on some gardening after a busy year. With a little imagination and some elbow grease you can turn your backyard into anything you want!
Maybe you’ve always wanted a Japanese garden with a water feature or a working vegetable garden that you can pick fresh veggies for each meal. You could even start that chicken coup you’ve always wanted. The possibilities are endless and in this post, we will take a look at some of the amazing fun things you can do in your backyard over the holidays.
A Succulent Garden
Succulents are great and building a succulent garden is easy. The beauty of succulents is that you only need to cut off a branch of an existing one and stick it in a pot and it will grow. This makes it very easy to accumulate a large number of different species in a short amount of time. If your friends are into the same thing you can trade and share with them and in no time, you have a fully thriving succulent city in your own backyard.
Install A Garden Shed
The holidays may be the perfect time to get that shed you’ve always wanted installed. After it gets built, you don’t have to stop there. Make the area around your shed pretty with some garden beds full of flowers or even better- edibles such as fruit and vegetables. Installing a shed will free up space in your patio and outdoor area while providing a safe and secure area to store all your tools in.
Build A Chicken Coup
Having farm fresh eggs every morning is great for your health and your wallet. The relationship between humans and chicken is a beautiful thing. All you have to do is feed them and let them scratch around in the backyard and in return, they supply you with a super food in the form of eggs. You also get the peace of mind that you’re eating natural eggs free from nasty hormones and chemicals.
Start Your Own Veggie Garden
You’re going to need some healthy vegetables to go with your free range eggs. It’s a great feeling knowing that you can produce an entire meal directly from your backyard. If you need some herbs or vegetables to complete a meal, you can pop on down to the garden and pick them, and because you grow them yourself, you know that they will be chemical and pesticide free.
Get Creative in Garden
Build that fish pond you have always wanted or maybe a Japanese garden. The sky is the limit. You will be getting exercise and having fun at the same time.
Holidays at home don’t have to be boring when there are so many fun things to do in your own backyard. If you’re in the market for a garden shed Sydney come and see us at Col Western Sheds and we will happily sort you out.
