The first is to have a shade sail installed. This is a large piece of fabric supported by posts that creates a covered area of the garden. Its perfect for retreating under when the sun’s glare is too hot. It can also protect you garden part from small rain showers.

Or you might want to consider a summer house. These are usually small wooden buildings with lots of glass. They are put in the garden and can act a base for outdoor pursuits like picnics and sunbathing.

If this is affecting your life, then it is possible to identify and dispose of poisonous plants effectively. Without that worry, you are bound to spend more time enjoying your garden and not being scared of it.


Another thing that can poison the pleasure of a nice garden is having super nosey neighbors. This issue is usually emphasized if your properties are close together, as there is little space between the houses and yards. It hard to have a nice meal when you feel ‘on show’.

Some people deal with this by building large fences. But these can be controversial as they often block the light getting into your or your neighbor’s properties.

Another way of dealing with the privacy issue is to install PVC blinds over your veranda. This means you can still enjoy alfresco dining, but you don’t have to worry about being overlooked and feeling ‘watched’ all the time.


Another issue that can stop people spending as much time outdoors as they’d like is not having an attractive home exterior. There’s just something nice about having a distinct area set aside for relaxing and eating in the garden like a patio or deck.

Remember, having a permanently set up table, chairs and fire pit on the patio, can help you establish a routine of spending your time out there.
