With the summer sunshine just around the corner, Barratt Homes has compiled a list of useful tips for making the most of your garden in a new Nottinghamshire home.
Since social distancing was introduced, many people have spent more time in their gardens and the leading developer has pulled together its best suggestions for ensuring the fixation continues in a new home.
It’s coming to the hottest part of the year which is ideal for homebuyers wanting to welcome friends and family members to socialise in their garden, or simply to enjoy the sun themselves.
Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “For those who have recently purchased a property or are still looking to buy, there are many ways to make the most of a beautiful garden.
“The anticipation of the summer weather has ensured social media is full of useful suggestions on how to enjoy the sunshine at home, so we have shared our top garden activities.”
Barratt Homes’ top ways to enjoy the garden are:
‘Meat’ and greet with a BBQ
Whilst observing the social distancing guidelines, you could host a barbecue for up to six members of your family, because there’s nothing better on a warm day than ice cold drinks and freshly grilled food.
Having a barbecue in the garden is a great opportunity to spend quality time with the family, as you can socialise and play games throughout the evening.
Bring the spa to your garden
Whether it’s for a couple or a small family, why not invest in a hot tub for the garden. You can bathe until your heart’s content in the evenings and on weekends, feeling like you’re on a relaxing spa break.
Spend ‘thyme’ on a herb garden
With gardening becoming a priority in recent months, it might be wise to start growing your own produce to spice up your home cooking.
Your herbs are to be kept indoors at first, giving you a chance to set up your garden with a box planter, containers and grow bags.
Bring the inside comfort outside
In a spacious garden within a Barratt home, you could create an urban chic retreat, with stylish seating surrounded by delightful garden plants.
Not only will this come in handy for socialising as a family and dining out in the warm evenings throughout the summer, you could introduce a heater during the winter to ensure it’s usable all year round.
Work out with an outdoor gym
Exercising at home has never been more prevalent and, whilst you could use a spare room inside the house, why not take to the garden and create a space for a home gym.
Achieve your goals and get a tan whilst doing so; all you’d need is your exercise equipment, whether it’s a bench with some weights or a yoga mat.
Barratt Homes North Midlands currently has properties available at the following developments in Nottinghamshire: Berry Hill in Mansfield, Romans’ Quarter in Bingham and Fernwood Village in Newark.
