As we move into 2021 and hopefully, see the end of the pandemic, we can all get back to some form of normality and if you would like to spend time on improving your exterior living space, here are a few cool ideas.

Great Gardening Hacks - garden

Artificial Grass

Like most things, artificial grass has got better, to the point where you can choose between a sports field type grass to a golf-green, smooth finish. Once you replace your lawn with artificial grass, you can sell that lawnmower that takes up too much space and your grassed area always looks spot on. You might have a quiet corner that could be turned into a small grassed area and the turf can be cut much like real grass.

Organic Vegetable Patch

Search online for compostable dog poop bags and add all your food waste to create rich compost that you can use with the veggie patch in the corner of the garden. Eating home-grown organic produce ensures that you have all the vitamins and nutrients for a healthy body and the seeds can be procured online, which is an eco-friendly way to grow your own food.



Pet Excrement

If your pet soils in the garden, you can order some dog poop bags that decompose naturally, so just add these to your compost and the problem is solved. Some people say that sprinkling pepper on flower beds will keep cats away and there are other home remedies to deter animals from defecating.

Light Sensors

If you install light sensors, the lights automatically come on when someone approaches, which is more than a little cool. Great for safety and security; an intruder would leave if the lights came on in the garden. Install some floor-level LED lights that are solar powered, which really does look amazing and with LED strips, you can create a Disney-style ambience.
