How to prep your garden for summer using glass balustrades

The weather is finally starting to hot up with the arrival of summer, but is your garden ready for BBQ season? Whether you’re planning a family gathering or just want an outdoors to be proud of – there are plenty of things you can do to spruce up your garden for summer.

One of the most underrated ways to turn your garden from drab to delightful is by installing glass balustrades on your patio. At EGW, we specialise in manufacturing bespoke glass fittings, and today we want to share with you five reasons you should consider glass balustrades to pep up your garden for the summer months this year – and for many years to come.

  1. Safety

One of the primary reasons why people install glass balustrades in the garden is for safety. Particularly where raised patios and uneven flooring are concerned, having glass balustrades can be an effective way of securing the area and preventing accidents from occurring.

There are many reasons you may require an additional element of security, including keeping elderly members, or young children, safe within the family. Implementing a glass balustrade to your patio can be an effective way of doing just that and our bespoke glass service means you can fit glass balustrades at different levels and heights to prevent any risks or hazards from occurring.

  1. Stylish

If you are particularly green fingered, then making your garden look lovely for summer may be a breeze. However, if you’re not that way inclined, it can be an overwhelming and daunting task to take on.

If this sounds familiar, glass balustrades could be the answer. Once fitted, they require very limited maintenance, and look sleek and stylish all year-round! So, if flowers and plants aren’t your thing – fitting one of our bespoke glass balustrades may just be.

  1. Space

Glass balustrades can be an ideal solution for enlarging small spaces, allowing you to create a feature in your garden without taking up huge amounts of space.

If you only have a small garden, installing a small glass balustrade around a section of it can divide the area up, giving the illusion of more space. Not only that, but the benefit of using a glass balustrade means you can still see the entire garden, removing the risk of feeling enclosed or blocked off from the rest of the space.

  1. Zones

Glass balustrades can transform a small garden space into a more interesting, attractive feature of the home – they can also work well in splitting a large outdoor area up.

A big garden can be a great selling point for any home but, without time and expertise, they can soon become difficult to maintain. Installing a glass balustrade to create sections or zones can give more structure and help to enhance the overall aesthetic of the space – with minimal effort.

  1. Minimalist

One of the biggest benefits of using glass balustrades outdoors is that the minimalist design means natural light is not blocked out. There are a range of styles you can opt for when it comes to glass balustrade fittings, but the choice to have a barely there look is available – putting emphasis on the glass rather than the fixtures keeping things in place.
