Stylish Outdoor Setting

When designing your garden having the right outdoor furniture is key. When selecting furniture think about how you want to use your garden. Are you looking for it to be somewhere to relax? Or is it somewhere to entertain? Outdoor furniture should be an extension of the style in your home and should complement your garden design.

Add Pots To Break Up Spaces

If there are empty spaces in your garden fill them by adding some oversized pots. Choosing pots in different sizes in the same colour will help to draw the eye to the space while looking chic and unified.

Raised Garden Beds

Not only do garden beds add height to your garden they also serve a functional purpose of keeping your pathway clear, keeping pests away from your plants and stopping weeds from growing. These raised garden beds make the perfect addition to any size garden.

Create Texture and Interest By Adding a Variety of Plants

Give your garden depth by adding layers of plants in a variety of sizes, colours and textures. This will make your garden feel bigger by playing an optical illusion on your eyes and making them believe there is more space then there actually is.

Make Your Own DIY Firepit

There's nothing better on cold Winter evenings then gathering around a roaring fire. For a garden idea with serious firepower, create your own firepit using simple items like some old bricks and a steel bowl. We guarantee that this will turn up the heat in your garden!

Mini Greenhouse

Adding in a glass cabinet can act as a mini-greenhouse for your plants. Greenhouses allow for plants to be better protected from pests and harsh weather, and enables them to grow in a controlled environment. Now, thats a stylish yet practical garden idea!
