With the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in full bloom last week and the celebration of National Barbecue Week this week, it’s really got our Land and New Homes team thinking about garden ideas and inspiration. One of our favourites from the Chelsea Flower Show was the ‘Space to Grow’ winner, The Facebook Garden: Beyond the Screen, using recycled materials to produce some of the garden furniture – which is something our developers keep in mind with popular eco-homes.
New build homes sometimes have a stigma attached to them with people often assuming that they come with little to no outdoor space at all. This is not the case as we currently have a number of developments with fantastic outside spaces; retractable roofs, countryside a stone’s throw away and landscaped front and rear gardens.
The best part of a new build garden is that it’s as much of a blank canvas as the home itself. From turfing to paving, you can put your own personal stamp on it and be as creative as you want without half the prep work! Entertaining, playing or relaxing – whatever yours or your family’s needs, you can make your outdoor space suit you.
