Tips on enjoying a true ‘staycation’ at home in West Lancs

by in category blog with 0 and 0

The British are appreciating and developing their gardens more than ever before.

It’s a trend that has been underway for some time, as many people are opting to improve, rather than move. Why have all the hassle and cost of relocating when you can make your existing property more of a home? Including carving out some improved outdoor living space.

Post-pandemic it looks like even more homeowners will invest in their gardens, as foreign travel is less attractive and holiday costs have skyrocketed! UK breaks are all the rage but so is turning your garden into a wonderful space for relaxing and socialising.

You don’t even need to invest in elaborate patios and decking, as long as you have a healthy, well-maintained lawn at your property in Southport, Formby, Ormskirk, Hesketh Bank, Tarleton, Rufford, Burscough or a surrounding area.

So, with a lush lawn, and some colourful garden furniture to use, what else can you do to create a year-round, home staycation?

Meal with a view

One of the most popular outdoor living accessories is equipment to cook on al fresco! Not just barbeques, but pizza ovens, chimineas and firepits too.

In one survey of people planning garden improvement projects, 75% said they wanted to create ‘outdoor kitchen’ projects!


Social space and family play

Being forced to stay at home, and then gradually having social opportunities outdoors, has inspired a new appreciation of the things you can do in a British garden!

With a young family, that could mean sacrificing part of your carefully maintained lawn for a football pitch or to hold a sandpit, paddling pool and other outdoor play equipment.

However, outdoor seating areas are also increasingly accompanied by adult garden games like giant Jenga or chess boards. Garden bars are also a great way of improving your social opportunities or private relaxation!

For the few and the brave, an outdoor pool makes staying at home in summer more fun.

Install a covered area and heating equipment outside your West Lancashire home, and you can enjoy outdoor living year-round!

Garden maintenance and improvement

At the very least, you can gain a massive sense of satisfaction and more space to relax in, if you tidy and improve your home exterior.
