Get your garden match-ready for Wimbledon 2024

We invite you to make a jug of Pimms, prepare the strawberries and fresh cream, grab a spoon, and settle in while we take you on a journey of Wimbledon garden inspiration.

We don’t all have tickets to Wimbledon 2024. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the matches in style.

Sprucing up your garden can make you feel like you’re there. But if you’re unsure how to transform your outdoor space, we’ve put together the perfect resource to help you inject some Wimbledon garden inspiration into your life. We’ll show you how you can turn your outdoor space into the perfect place to enjoy the tennis, whether that’s on your TV, radio, or smartphone/tablet.

Before we get started, we invite you to make a jug of Pimms, prepare the strawberries and fresh cream, grab a spoon, and settle in while we take you on a journey of garden inspiration.

Spruce up your lawn for an insta-ready finish

We don’t expect you to pot and feed your plants, mulch your flowerbeds, trim your hedges, mow your lawn, and de-weed everything to look like a Wimbledon tennis stadium. However, some lawn maintenance is required if you want to make your garden bloomin’ beautiful at the very least.

Of course, we understand if you’d rather drink some Pimms and put your feet up, which is why hiring an expert might serve you better.

Most gardeners will set you back around £175 per day. For a lawn your neighbours will envy, take a look at our lawn treatment cost guide.

Create some shade to keep you cool during tense tennis moments

Forget the sea of straw hats seen in a Wimbledon stadium. Create your own shade in the privacy of your own back garden with a new tree, garden sail, or gazebo. Not only will fashion gurus everywhere thank you, but so will your ice cream.

Most sun-relieving shade sails look lovely in a contemporary garden. And what’s more, they come in various shapes and sizes. However, if you’re looking to build a gazebo, expect the costs to be slightly higher. For example, most standard gazebo installations will cost an average of £7,000.

That said if you’d prefer nature’s shade, planting a tree costs could cost around £250 (depending on the size and type of tree).

Clean and decorate your patio or decking with Wimbledon’s signature hydrangeas

If you’re lucky enough to have a patio or decking area, you’re already halfway to having the perfect setup to enjoy the tennis.

As your garden recovers from the winter months and the uncertainty of the spring weather, consider giving your patio or decking a deep clean. Add a few pink and blue potted hydrangeas around the periphery to finish the look. It’s one of the easiest ways to give your garden a mini-makeover, and now you have the perfect place to listen to the tennis on the radio.

A low-maintenance jet wash for a medium-sized patio will cost around £250, while a selection of potted hydrangeas could cost between £50 – £100.

If you’d like to build a patio in your garden, expect it to cost between £65 – £340 per m².

Consider building a summerhouse to watch Wimbledon 2024

There’s nothing lovelier than having extra space away from your house’s main hustle and bustle. Having a small garden room to hide away in and enjoy some RnR is an excellent way to have some ‘me’ time.

You can turn it into a yoga room, a gaming room, a home office, or a mini-entertainment centre. Consider equipping it with a mini-fridge, bookshelves, and a TV or radio. What better way to watch the tennis?

A garden room could set you back upwards of £2,500 for the shell, but you’ll also have to think about labour, electrics and decoration etc.

Build your own tennis court

Sure, building your own tennis court might be a little beyond the realms of possibility for most UK homeowners. But if you have the space and the inclination, why not build a tennis court and practise your forehand and backhand? You never know; it could be you on the court for Wimbledon 2024. If not, a Grand Slam tennis tournament for your family and friends might be more realistic…

The cost to build a tennis court could set you back around £45,000, so make sure you’re committed to the sport before you begin constructing your project!
