When you have a garden with a lot of space, it’s definitely not a bad thing, but you can sometimes end up feeling like you just have all this space and don’t really know what to do with it. Of course, things like plants and vegetable gardens are great things to add, but truly you can only have so many of them, and they do require a good bit of upkeep as well, which is something you may not have lots of time for.
In this post, we’re going to share with you some creative and fun ways to use the space in a bigger garden so that you can not only have a beautiful looking garden, but a place you enjoy being and can spend time in during the warmer months of the year.
Get a pool or hot tub:
When you have a bigger garden, then one of the first things you may be considering getting is something like a pool or hot tub - or maybe even both, especially if you live somewhere with a warmer climate. You may be put off because you think that they’re going to cost too much to install and that maintaining them could be too hard. However, nowadays, although pools and hot tubs aren’t exactly the cheapest things you’ll ever purchase, they’re a lot less expensive than they used to be, and you can find them in all kinds of price ranges depending on the type you want to get. Of course they may seem like a bit of an extravagant purchase, but they really could bring so much enjoyment - especially if you have kids of grandkids who would enjoy them. Also another great benefit of either of these options is that they can add a lot of value to your house if you ever decide to sell.
Get a man/woman cave:
The concept of the man and woman cave has become quite popular in recent years, and you can go as simple or over the top with these as you like. You’ll find all kinds of inspiration and whacky ideas online from people who have either designed these or built their own. From library styles to bars and game rooms and everything in between, this can be a great way to use extra space in your garden, and they really don’t have to be as expensive as you may think. You can look for shed suppliers online to get an idea of the layouts and styles available to see what might work in your garden.
Get a barbeque area:
If you enjoy cooking during the summer - or even just love grilling outside, then setting yourself up with a proper barbeque area is a great way to use up some extra space and will be a good place to entertain as well.
Get a play area:
If you have young children or even grandchildren, then getting them their very own playground could be a real hit. You can buy the equipment for this pretty reasonably and it really doesn’t have to be a complicated thing to set up at all.
