A garden is a wonderful way to enjoy your outdoors space and create a beautiful area for relaxing and entertaining. With so many things you can do in the garden it’s a great to make the most of your outdoor living space. This can include planting flowers, adding seating areas, and incorporating features like composite decking. We look at my favourite pass times and how to fully embrace the garden as our home.
Plant a Planter
Building a planter with composite decking is an excellent way for growing fruits and vegetables. As a non-toxic material, the durable and low-maintenance material that is resistant to moisture, rot, and insects.
To build a planter measure and cut the decking boards to the appropriate size for your planter. Then, you can assemble the planter using screws and a drill. Be sure to use a weed barrier or landscape fabric to line the inside of the planter before filling it with soil.
Once you have built your planter, you can start planting your favourite fruits and vegetables. Some popular options include tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, and herbs. Be sure to choose plants that are appropriate for your climate and soil conditions.
Organise The Shed
The warmer weather approaching is the perfect time to start decluttering and tidying up your shed. Organising your shed not only looks better, but it also makes it easier to find what you need. Saving time when working on the outdoor projects.
Start by emptying everything from the shed and sorting it into sections of what to keep, donate, or get rid of. Give the shed walls, floors and shelves a clean to remove any dust.
Consider creating zones for different types of tools and equipment with labels to always put the item back in the same place.
Tidying up your shed this spring will not only help keep everything clean but also create a more enjoyable experience when working on projects.
Light Up the Garden
Using solar lighting is a great way to create a warm and eco-friendly ambiance to your outdoor space once the sun has set.
Solar lights use energy from the sun to charge during the day, and then automatically turn on at night. The cost saving lights do not require electricity and save money on wiring too.
Solar lights come in a variety of styles, from string lights to path lights, so you can choose the best option to fit your outdoor space. By using solar lighting, you can design a warm and inviting outdoor atmosphere while also reducing our environmental impact.
A Fire Pit
A fire pit in your garden can help set up a cosy gathering place for family and friends. Providing warmth on chilly nights, light for the darker evenings and the perfect ambiance for roasting marshmallows.

When building a birdhouse or table, consider the size and style of the composite boards. You can use different colours to create a unique and attractive design.
Building a birdhouse or table out of composite decking boards adds value to your outdoor space and provides a safe, inviting environment for birds. A fun and rewarding project that can be enjoyed by all.
