Making the Most of Your Home Garden

As soon as we get a few early days of spring sunshine, everyone begins to wonder what to do with their garden and long, sunny afternoons entertaining seem just around the corner.

To help you make the most of your home garden this spring and summer we have put together some top tips to get your garden looking amazing, no matter what the size.

Modular Garden Furniture

Modular garden furniture gives you the flexibility for all occasions and adapts to the space you have. You can pick and choose the type of furniture to suit the space you have or the guests you are expecting. It’s perfect for both hosting a garden party or relaxing with a good book on the patio.

Small Garden Ideas

If you have a small urban garden or even a balcony, introduce plant pots to add colour without using too much space. Replace grass with stones or slabs for a low maintenance design and if it’s just the two of you, buy a bistro set and enjoy romantic meals outdoors.

Adding Outdoor Accessories

Garden decorations and accessories are a great way to add homely touches to your outdoor space. Put plant pots on garden shelves or plant stands to add different levels to a garden. To give your garden a more spacious feel, a mirror can make a nice addition – alternatively, a side table always makes for a handy place to keep nibbles and drinks within arm’s reach.

Light Up an Evening Garden

Don’t go inside when the night falls! Watch the stars by the warmth of a fire pit table. A fire pit or chiminea creates a focal point for people to huddle round when darkness falls. Hang solar panelled lights over your garden or along a fence for a little eco-friendly light at a low cost.
