It’s safe to say British summer is in full swing, and while you’re staying safe in your homes it’s time to make the most of your beautiful gardens! While we’re still keeping to some level of lockdown the gardens of our luxury homes at Fairways View in Prestwich, Manchester, are the perfect place to spend your days in the sunshine.

Stuck for things to do? Here’s our top list on things to do this weekend while you’re out enjoying the sun in your green space!

1. Make your garden bloom by planting colourful flowers

Now is the perfect time to get out in your garden and plant colourful, seasonal blooms to enjoy all summer! Begonia, Sweet Peas and Geraniums are some beautiful summer beddings to start bringing colour into your garden and are the perfect seasonal plants to maintain.

2. Get creative by painting

Painting not only has a wealth of benefits, from curing boredom to creating a moment of calm, but also painting and being creative outside means there’s no big clean up and your garden can provide you with a wealth of inspiration.

3. Have a BBQ

It is officially BBQ season, and what better way to make the most of your garden than by firing up the BBQ and eating delicious food with your family and making new family weekend memories. Every Cube Homes family home in Prestwich has beautifully landscaped gardens that you can make the most in the long summer days.

4. Plant your own fruit and vegetable patch, and eat fresh produce from your own garden

Now is the perfect time to read up on how to grow your own fresh fruit and veg, while we’re all staying safe in our homes! Growing your own fresh produce is a fun activity for all of the family, and a great way of incorporating fresh fruit and veg into meals at home. If you’re not sure where to start, cucumbers, peppers, strawberries and tomatoes are all easy and maintainable.

5. Create your own cosy corner in your garden

While you’re spending more time out than in, why not bring your cosy corner outside too, and create the perfect space to relax and unwind in the summer evenings? From comfy garden furniture, to pretty fairy lights and solar lights, make your garden your own and make the most of the long summer evenings.
