Four Ideas to Make the Most of Your Garden in the Garden of England

Four Ideas to Make the Most of Your Garden in the Garden of England

In this two-minute read, we share some simple ideas to
improve your garden.

When it comes to outside
space, size doesn’t matter – it’s what you do with it that counts. According to
a recent survey, gardens took the top spot on wish lists for both buyers and
renters (source: Rightmove). Here are some tips for making the most of your
outside space.

Light it up

Twinkling fairy lights can
make even the most modest of spaces look magical. But to really put your garden
in the spotlight, why not add some statement pendants or standing lamps for a
warm glow. Church-style candles in glass hurricane vases are fantastic for
atmospheric lighting – and great value, too.

Mirror, mirror on the wall

A relatively new concept, but
one which is gaining momentum, is the idea of hanging mirrors in small
courtyard-style gardens. Subtly creating a sense of space, mirrors can add a
stylish element to your chosen theme – use driftwood frames for a casual beach
style or ornate vintage enamel for shabby chic.

Walls without limits

Think of walls and fences as
a blank canvas. If painting a mural is beyond your artistic capabilities, have
fun with stencils to create some stunning wall art. Attach colourful plants to
a wall to make a ‘living’ wall and at the same time, you’ll save valuable floor
space for patio furniture. Fences can be used to train sprawling vine-like
plants and flowers. Liven up hedges by adorning them with strings of pretty solar
lights using struts within the branches.

The grass CAN always be greener

If you’re lusting after a
luscious lawn but your shady garden means that it’s more moss than meadow,
consider whether artificial grass or decking might be a better option. Synthetic
grass has come a long way since the early luminous green options.

In property selling, kitchens
used to take pole position in marketing materials. But gardens are now vying
for the top spot. Excellent photos of the outside space your property has to
offer are a must.
