Winter is fast approaching, so it’s fair to say that the colder weather might be putting you off heading out into the garden. However, just because the temperate has dropped, that doesn’t mean you can’t still get out and enjoy your garden space and the new composite fencing panels you’ve purchased from us right here at North Valley Composites. So, we’ve put together a few ways in which you can enjoy your garden, even when the temperature is less than agreeable. Bring some warmth to your outdoors It’s safe to say that fire pits have become a popular feature of UK gardens over the last few years, and it’s easy to see why. There are so many options out there for you to choose from these days; from those built into a brick foundation as a permanent garden feature to small, temporary pits that you can pop away when you’re not using them. They’re a great way to bring some much needed warmth to your garden during the brisk winter nights. Picture it: you’re sat around the fire with your family, a warm blanket, a mug of hot chocolate and some roasted marshmallows. Perfect. Pay some mind to your smaller spaces Sometimes, little changes can have a big influence on your garden space. It can be quite challenging to turn a large garden space into a cosy winter setting, however, by focusing your attention on a smaller area of your garden, you can create a cosy winter nook that makes for a gorgeous garden feature – one that’s small enough to remain untouched all year round. A small area dedicated to winter relaxation won’t overpower the rest of your garden space, and will save you having to put your winter furnishings away once the spring rolls around. Then again – if you want to create a cosy winter wonderland in your garden by hanging lanterns everywhere and planting a few evergreens and pansies, the choice is yours! Consider a makeshift composite shelter It doesn’t have to cost you the earth to build the perfect winter nook in your garden! A small shelter space can be created with no more than three walls and a roof, and by utilising our extremely durable composite fence panels, you can create the ultimate winter shelter to keep you protected, regardless of the weather. To make your shelter nice and cosy, furnish it with some comfy chairs, a fire pit, and a few hanging lamps. So, even though the weather has taken a turn for the chilly, with the right kind of planning and space management, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy your garden space this winter! With a few additions here and there, and some creative use of our composite fencing panels, you’ll have your very own winter wonderland in no time. Our composite fencing is the low-maintenance option that can keep your space looking at its very best for a decade or more. What’s more, we provide composite fencing in a variety of different colours like Golden Oak, Driftwood, and Black Ash. And if you need any help narrowing down your options, that’s what we’re here for.
