Kew Garden's, Garden Inspiration

Last weekend we had a great experience and got lots of inspiration exploring the wonders of Kew Gardens

The last time I went was 20 something years ago when I was at school and I do not know why I waited so long to go back. My sister-in-law and I took the kids for a day of learning all about the beautiful flowers and some fun, whilst enjoying this British summer before it starts winding down. 

For those that are fortunate to have a garden, even if you don't, Kew Gardens offer up loads of inspiration, to revamping your lawn to updating your flower boxes. I've been meaning for a while to update our garden, totally not child-friendly with it being paved, but I never knew what I wanted or how I wanted for it to look, that was not until I went and saw all the beautiful landscaped areas and beautiful flowers at Kew Garden.

With some much wonders and tropical botanical gardens to see, it will certainly help boost your creativity and will turn you into the garden whisperer. 

For me a garden is a communal place, it is truly peaceful, I want to wake up in the mornings with a hot cuppa and just breathe in its beauty and the morning air with Leanora running around chasing Milo and I plan on doing just that with a little revamp, thanks to Kew Garden's Inspiration.

Instead of me fighting about how awful tiles or slabs can look, I've decided to give the whole garden a lift and add a lot of greenery to it. Now, I do not have a mower and I certainly won't be getting on my hands and knees to trim the grass, however opting for artificial grass is a lot better, it looks just as good and a lot easier to maintain, plus great for the kids too all season out and is low maintenance and there is a big range of style and colour for you to choose from. 

I am not one to shy away from getting my hands dirty, so planting flowers in my garden to brighten and give it an instant lift is a must. We found some stunning roses that smelt like geranium, honey and myrrh fragrance in Kew Garden's our fave had to be the Gentle Hermione, Rose. Whilst we could not take these away with us, we will certainly be heading to our local flower centre to grab some delights to brighten up our garden, plus it is a great way to attract wildlife such as bees. 

You are going to need some tools to help prep your garden, such as a garden gloves to brooms and I've literally gone nuts for the stuff, TK Maxx has a great selection of chic utility items for the garden, I'll give you an update in a few weeks on where else you can purchase that attractive compost bin to the stylish hose. 

If you are starting out with a blank canvas or not but just need a little inspiration, Pinterest has a lot of amazing pictures and links to guide on where to start on creating your dream garden. You can follow my Pinterest Garden Board here, for some help!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful, I'll be back with some more useful updating tips, but for now, how have you updated your garden or are you thinking about it? I would love to hear in the comments below!
