Is it better to have a small garden where you can’t fit anything or a large garden that you can’t fill? We’ve found that, although great, having a large garden can be problematic for gardening enthusiasts who want to make it special. That’s why we have put together a list of 5 ways that you can make use of your large empty garden space.
Get a pond
One way to fill your garden is to build a pond. This will create a focal point for your garden and filling the pond up with beautiful fish will have all your neighbours jealous. Make sure to get check which types of fish can survive in a pond before you buy! You could even take it one step further and get some fancy lights for around the pond to make it stand out at night.
Create a barbecue area
We might not always have great weather, but sometimes we get a glimpse of sun and by the time we’ve got the barbecue out its gone! We think that creating a barbecue area with a shelter so that your barbecue can stay dry (just in case) is a great idea. You can also build seats around it or even a picnic table to make it permanent feature. Think of all the amazing gatherings you can have over the summer if you get started on this now.

Create an outdoor play area
If you have kids, you might already have a climbing frame. If not, why not turn your garden into a mini football or rugby pitch? This is easily done with the paint and line applicator machines available from Bowcom. These machines will impress your kids and their friends as you turn your big garden into a mini park.
Bury a trampoline
Whether you have a trampoline or not, you’ll know that they’re very popular and entertaining for both adults and kids. Our idea though is to not just have your trampoline as normal, but to bury it in the ground. If you have kids they will love this as it will be so different to what their friends have in their gardens!This will also make the trampoline a part of the garden rather than a huge eyesore!
Get a Greenhouse
Our final idea for you is to get a greenhouse for your garden. If you don’t have one already, greenhouses are great for growing your own plants and vegetables. Why not feed your family and use up your garden space at the same time? Mare sure to take a look at some of our guides on how to make the most of your greenhouse!
Although the big space can be overwhelming at first, we think you should implement at least one of these features to get youstarted. Soon, you’ll have a garden full of features to impress your friends with!
