It’s a well-known fact that Mum’s love gardening, and spending quality time with their flowers and plants is what makes them smile the most. It’s been quite a long time since gardening TV shows made the prime time slots, but the popularity of Ground Force all those years ago caused a nationwide garden inspiration wave, and home gardens have never been the same ever since.
Having a garden used to be a luxury and if you managed to have a well-cultivated lawn and handful of trees and flowers to tend to, you were considered to have a happy lot, indeed. These days, however, gardens that are styled and designed with features and functional areas are quite the norm.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so why not take inspiration from the Ground Force team and treat your mum to the garden of her dreams? With a little planning and elbow grease, you can transform her garden in just a few, easy steps. Whether you decide on a water feature, stone seating or any of our garden ornaments, you can be sure that your mum’s garden will look the part for years to come, with Tor Stone.
Before you begin your project, why not send your mum off for a pamper day, to keep her in the dark about her real surprise this Mother’s Day? Get your family and friends on board to assist; you can never have too many helping hands.
Think of the area of the garden that your mum loves the most; can you improve this space? If she loves flowers but can’t quite manage the labour of love with borders, why not plant a few wall creepers and small trees that are easy to maintain, and replant the flowers in easier to reach stone planters?
The Finer Details
Now that the hard work is complete, it’s down to the finer details to truly mesmerise your mum.
If you have a patio, a power wash will have it looking as good as new, and the addition of a few potted plants and balustrading will completely make over the feel of this entire area.
If you’re considering a water feature, then look no further; we have a wide range of styles and designs to suit your mum down to the ground.
Buy an assortment of new flowers for her to tend to, and some stone seating for her to sit and admire her new pride and joy from. What could be more relaxing on a warm, spring day?
