In wanting to create a relaxing space for a staycation, you need to prepare your garden and keep it clean. During this time when a global pandemic is present, it is best to begin cleaning your space by disinfecting it. You can clean surfaces with soap and water and use household disinfectants or a diluted bleach solution to spray on the area.

Then, you can start clearing out any clutter, cleaning your outdoor furniture, pruning your plants, and mowing your lawn. You should also keep all your garden furniture in the garage or garden shed.

2. Choose a theme


The next step to preparing your outdoor space for a garden staycation is to decorate it according to your theme and resources. You may need to spend some amount so it’s also important to determine your budget and plan accordingly.

Here are some of the items you can invest on in your garden staycation:

Outdoor furniture – Since you will be spending time with family, opt for comfort and functionality. If you already have a set of outdoor furniture at home, you can simply add up some covering or throw pillows for a cosy feel. If not, it’s best to go for the modern rattan garden furniture that is durable, stylish, and maintenance-free.

Garden building – Investing in a log cabin or summerhouse for your garden can go a long way towards making your outdoor space functional. It can serve as an extension to your indoor living space as well as a garden staycation room all year round.

Lighting – Aside from creating a stylish space, outdoor lighting will allow you to enjoy your garden staycation after dark. You can invest in solar lights that are classy and inexpensive. Backlighting and uplighting can also highlight your favourite spots in the garden.

BBQ or outdoor kitchen – Since your staycation can include some cooking and food, you can re-create a simple kitchen outdoors or put out your BBQ. You could even throw a BBQ party for family and friends!

4. Disconnect


To feel the vacation vibe despite merely being in your garden, play some soundtracks as if you are going on a trip. Listen to some beach music, tropical tunes, classic songs, or even popular music you can sing along to.
