Split the Garden Into Distinct Sections

First of all, you should think about splitting the garden up into a series of distinct sections, each with its own purpose. For example, one area might be dedicated to flowers and flower beds, while another might be more about relaxing and dining outdoors with family. Creating zones in your garden in this way is definitely a good idea and can make your garden multi-functional.

Pick a New Theme

Every garden should have some sort of theme or stylistic approach if you want it to all come together. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated. It could be as simple as sticking to a particular colour combination or you could take things a little further than that, such as a wild garden, a butterfly garden or an edible garden, it’s entirely up to you. Once you have a theme, make it your aim to stick to it for a cohesive approach.

Invest in a New Shed


If you’re looking to make gardening an activity that you do regularly, it’s a good idea to invest in some tools and a shed where you can store them. You can find garden sheds for sale very easily and once you have one, it’ll make it easier to stick to your plans of gardening regularly and staying on top of essential garden maintenance. It could be just what your space needs.

Weed and Prune

If you want to first of all tackle the situation that your garden is currently in, you’ll need to tame it and get it back under your control. Doing that is often easier said than done, but it all starts with the process of weeding and pruning the garden. That allows you to cut out the dead parts of the bushes, plants and shrubs while making space for healthier regrowth going forward.

Start Planting


For your garden to really feel full of life and vibrancy, you need to add some plants and flowers to it. It really is as simple as that. So eventually the time will come when you simply need to start planning out your flower beds and get planting. It can be a little daunting at first if you’re not much of a gardener, but there are plenty of guides out there that make the steps clear.

If you’re not sure where to take your neglected garden, starting with the ideas I've discussed here is definitely a good place to start. You’re not going to fix it overnight, but with the right approach you’ll eventually be able to create a garden that offers all the things you want it to.
