Always dreamed of living in the country, but stuck in the concrete jungle? Don’t worry, with a few wilko products and a bit of imagination, we’ll get you there.
1. Furniture for a small garden
Creating the perfect hideaway and country garden is definitely achievable, even if your outdoor space is overlooked and you struggle for privacy. Firstly, start with somewhere to sit. If you’re craving the country look, a rustic wooden bench can create the perfect quaint ambience. The rattan effect seat on this wooden bench is so comfortable. And to make it even more snug, why not add a few outdoor cushions in natural colours?
2. Garden screening and garden trellis
With your seating area sorted, it’s time to block out those neighbours, and we have the ideal product. Trellis is perfect for screening off sections of your garden or covering up unsightly walls. Our artificial trellis is expandable and comes with artificial leaves and detailing, allowing it to blend seamlessly into any garden setting. What’s great about it is that it requires zero maintenance, so when you’ve had a busy day, you won’t have to worry about pruning and cutting it back to stop it growing over into next door’s garden!
To make your trellis even more appealing, weave in some twinkling fairy lights and watch them sparkle as night falls. Alternatively, add some LED lights into the ground. If all you have is a hard solid surface, try sticking them in plant pots instead.
3. Creating a cosy garden
When creating a country garden corner, think about natural textures and colours and how you could recreate that atmosphere. Try and hide concrete where possible. Wooden accessories can definitely help with that. Decorate your garden with trinkets like our quaint heart hanger or choose from animal-themed accessories to really bring the outdoors home.
If you like relaxing outdoors into the early evening, don’t forget a throw to keep you warm and make your hideaway even cosier.
