With summer coming to a close, you now have around 2 months left to take advantage of the weather and utilise your garden space. If you neglected your outdoor area after last year or if you’ve simply not touched up your space because the weather hasn’t felt like it’s appropriate for outdoor sitting yet, you may need to do some work! You don’t want to miss out on the rare day of sunny skies so it will pay to revamp your garden whilst its cloudy so that you’re ready for when the sun shows its face. With that in mind, take a look below at some of these tips so you know how you can revamp your garden space into a picturesque outdoor retreat!
Switch Up That Structure
If you’re lucky enough to have a big garden or even one that’s long in shape, you may be faced with a tricky way of making it look welcoming, without it seeming bare or boring. The best solution for this is to add some fake dividers into its layout so it creates the image of depth. If you introduce some new sections, – say breaks up of wicker conservatory furniture arrangement, trellis’ or flowers beds - you can design your garden in a way that you can’t see the natural flow of the garden, creating the appearance of a mysterious garden that weaves and winds. This will give you and your guests the impression that your garden is a lot bigger than it actually is.
On the flipside of the above, it you don’t have the biggest of places to get inventive with or maybe you have a flat that only offers a small courtyard area – if that applies to you then you need to go for a snug space and more importantly, get vertical! The reason for this is that most small areas have long, vertical walls and this gives you the ability to hang baskets and introduce climbing plants to surround your setting. You can add trellis type walls or plant walls to create a snug enclosed space that not only adds texture to the space but it also gives you a friendly, welcoming space to entertain guests in all day long!

Create a New Colour Theme
