The backyard is one of the most important parts of the Aussie home. As we increasingly seek out an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, backyards have truly become extensions of our homes. Wooden decks or outdoor tiles create great spaces for relaxing and entertaining that complement lawns and flower gardens for the complete living environment. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy your garden. Here a few ideas to help you make the most of — and get the most from — your backyard.
Do you see gardening as a chore? It shouldn’t be. See it for what it is: an opportunity to spend time outdoors, working with nature. Don’t put yourself under too much pressure to create the greatest garden of all time. Just enjoy the therapeutic quality of spending time with your own thoughts and in contact with the earth. Enjoy gardening for the process itself and see the results that you reap as a bonus. You will be surprised what you can achieve.
