The cold, wet weather which winter produces means that a garden is used much less, when compared to its usage throughout summer. Whilst your garden is not regularly visited, it can become somewhat noticeable that you have not utilised areas over the previous summer. Hindsight is a beautiful thing.
Furthering on from this, hindsight provides you with the opportunity to improve the areas which have become secluded, over the coming year. Despite this opportunity, many are unaware as to how exactly they can reintroduce these areas of their garden.
Trees can often prove a difficult feature to immerse within a garden design, especially due to the shaded areas which they can create. In the height of summer, many do not want to sit in dark areas when enjoying summer, and this reluctance will only be increased due to the fact it will not be as warm in these areas either.
Yet, despite this reluctance, many will not look to remove the tree from their garden, as it can be seen as a defining, and unique factor to a garden. With this in mind, it becomes even more important to try and reintroduce the secluded area to your garden design. This can be done to an extent by embracing the tree as part of the garden which you regularly utilise, and creating a seating area in its vicinity certainly works to do this. It is not uncommon to see a bench wrapped around the bottom of a tree, helping to develop a somewhat enchanting feel within your garden. Many see this as a tranquil place where they can find peace and quiet, a perfect place for a summer afternoons reading.
As well as this, you can also work to make this previously isolated area of your garden design, the central focus of it, offering a complete turnaround from the previous summer. A couple of months preparation in the build up to summer provides you with an ideal opportunity to reinvigorate this area. In much the same way as anything, a bit of tender loving care can go a long way to recovering the original state of something. Kitting out this area of your garden with seasonal accessories can help to rejuvenate this part of your garden. Cushions are a great way to accessorise your garden, and during summer and autumn, can be suitably themed around the associated colours of the season.
