How to Enjoy Great Outdoors Month in Your Garden

How to Enjoy Great Outdoors Month in Your Garden

June is Great Outdoors Month, and now that the sunny weather has finally arrived, there's never been a better time to get out and celebrate the great outdoors in your own back garden!

Here are a few ideas to help get you started…

Move your meals outdoors

Now is the time to dust off the BBQ, set up the garden furniture and enjoy some outdoor dining in the sunshine. If you want to create the perfect outdoor space for your alfresco dining, take a look at our ranges of Composite Decking. Composite decking is an excellent, low maintenance option, which comes in a wide variety of colours and textures to give you the perfect deck for entertaining guests. It is also great for families with young children because it has a non-slip surface. We stock two ranges of composite decking: Trex and Millboard. Both are industry leaders in the construction of timber-alternative decking using recycled products that stand the test of time.

Invite wildlife into your garden

Thinking of ways to attract more wildlife into your garden is not only exciting for children, but it will also provide many benefits for the local environment. There are many features you can add into your garden in order to encourage more wildlife, such as a bird feeder, a water feature or even a bug hotel. The best part about making a bug hotel is that you can make them with just about anything! Simply put together a frame using timber or MDF and fill with items like sticks, cardboard, bricks and pinecones. The insects will use these items to hide in and lay eggs.

Encourage outdoor play

Outdoor play is a fantastic way to engage your child’s imagination, cultivate an appreciation of nature, and inspire children to enjoy the outdoors.  Adding a playhouse to your garden is a great way to encourage more outdoor play, because they can use it all year round. You can also ask your child to help you paint and decorate their playhouse. This will not only allow them to make the space their own, but it will also feel like a really rewarding experience.
