We know that summer is officially behind us now but that doesn't mean we can't start thinking about how we'd like to upgrade our gardens next spring.

Any professional gardener will tell you that the planning you do now will make execution so much simpler come the first days of spring, so get ahead of the gardening game with us. 

We've thought of some fantastic garden upgrades and DIY projects that we'd love to get around to next year so, if any of these tickle your fancy, start planning now!

1. A simple brick and wood grill set up

For easy and impressive summer barbecue parties!

2. A wooden seating area that surrounds a brick fire pit

Would be so good for evening drinks.

3. You can normally get a path laid in a weekend

So this is a nice, quick project.

4. A funky water feature

If you have time to plan, you could come up with something really special!

5. A stunning pond

Start researching your pond liners now and look out for good spring deals.

6. Raised vegetable beds

Summer crops are often easier to grow so plan to build your beds and plant your first seeds in spring.

7. Picnic benches are simple to assemble

They make for easy outdoor eating and you could even get a few for parties!

8. A brick dining table and chairs set up

They look great and won't need cleaning like wood

9. Pergolas add instant style and character to a garden

Start planning what style you want now.

10. Rock gardens are easy to create

They also need no ongoing maintenance and look fantastic, so a perfect spring project.

11. Build or improve your shed

If your shed has seen better days (or you never got around to building one) now is the time to properly plan something special.

12. A steadfast deck is a lovely upgrade for your garden

Decking is simple to fit but wait until the weather is better.

13. Pallet furniture
