How to Plan an Outdoor Project

Here at Authentic Reclamation, we believe there’s nothing better than a good outdoor project. Whether you’re looking for a quick morning job or a complete overhaul there are a set of things that must be done for it to be a success.

Find Some Inspiration

One of the most important things you need to do is figure out what you do and don’t like. Watching gardening project shows, reading magazines and visiting other gardens all provide the perfect inspiration for your project.

Think about what you want the space to become. If you want a larger gardening space, a nice boardwalk, a larger lawn, an eating or sitting space accommodate that. The possibilities are endless when it comes to garden redesigns.

Think About Your Space

It’s important to understand what you’re working with, by building a realistic understanding of what is possible. There are many things to think about such as what plants are going to thrive in your environment, whether your garden is north or south facing, the layout of your garden and its overall size. If you have a smaller garden then you need to prioritise some things over others. You have to be selective and figure out what is going to be practical.

Set a Budget

While your brain might be flooding with ideas, your garden redesign is likely going to be decided by your budget. It’s much easier to go way over a budget than stay under it so be responsible and try not to get too carried away. The cost of your garden is going to depend upon several things such as how much you do yourself and what items you purchase.

Here at Authentic Reclamation, we have a large range of reclaimed goods perfect for your outdoor project, all for an affordable price. Anything from reclaimed rockery stone to impressive garden features. You’re sure to find something that fits both your budget as well as the aesthetic you are trying to achieve.
