Garden in need of an update? We’ve got 10 quick and easy ways to transform your outdoor space, without breaking the bank:
1. Trim the lawn and tidy the edges
Grab the right garden tools for the job and tidy the edges of the lawn to make your garden look ship-shape and super stylish.
2. Add a gorgeous bench
Place a bench in a quiet corner of the garden where you can sit back and relax, whether it’s to admire your hard work around the garden or with a good book for company. Add a couple of scatter cushions for extra style and comfort.
3. Update your shed
Give your shed a new lease of life by treating it to a paint job. There are loads of beautiful shades of garden furniture paint to choose from, making your shed a real feature. Hang bunting and signs to personalise and complete with a couple of pots to add to the look.
4. Perk up the patio
Give your patio a new lease of life by adding pots and containers blooming with beautiful flowers. A metal bench covered with scatter cushions will create a stylish vintage look. Window boxes full of herbs and well-placed garden ornaments will only add to the beauty and feel.
5. Create an outdoor kitchen
Creating an outdoor kitchen space is a fantastic way to help create the perfect entertaining environment. Position your BBQ in a safe place where you can use the space around you by fixing outdoor shelving and utensil racks to walls. You could even decorate the area with outdoor wall art or a clock.
6. Get block colouring
If you are feeling bold, block colouring your fence panels can make for a quirky, interesting look in your garden. There are a variety of shades available to create a stunning feature of something which otherwise fades into the background. You could even colour coordinate your shed and wooden seating.
7. Install a water feature
Easy to install and maintain, a water feature is great way of transforming your garden into the ultimate chill out zone.
8. Create a country garden by planting colourful bulbs
Planting bulbs is an easy way to bring colour into the garden. If you are short of space, many bulbs are just as great in pots and containers as they are in borders. Bulbs are also great at encouraging wildlife into your outdoor space.
9. Create privacy or update your look with screening
Create privacy or update the look and feel of your garden with reed screening. Not only does it look good but it is great value.
10. Create the illusion of space – install a mirror
An outdoor mirror is a great way of creating the feeling of extra space in your garden and a quick and easy way to add style and elegance.
