Add Some Pots

Planters and pots are a simple and effective way to keep a garden looking neat and well-maintained. They are also a great way to add some colour and personality to your space. You can also upcycle existing pots with a quick coat of spray paint, so this can be super cost-effective!

And if you feel you are not particularly green-fingered, then ready-planted hanging baskets or pre-planted containers will instantly liven up your outside space; all you need to do is find a spot to put them and keep them adequately watered.

Add Lighting

Most of us tend to think about how our garden looks during the day, but lighting can make it a special place to be later into the evening. Ambient lighting is an easy addition that will evoke a beautiful atmosphere and create a magical outdoor oasis. Lighting is ideal for both atmosphere and security. Installing some solar lighting is a smart way to give your garden a professional look and create some great ambience with very little effort.

Upcycle Objects

Upcycling old furniture and items in your home is a budget-friendly and easy way to spruce up your garden. Be sure to weatherproof any furniture you upcycle so that it will last through winter and summer. Consider giving an old item a colourful makeover with a pot of garden furniture paint to add some colour and charm to your garden space. Make sure to give any wood a good sanding first, then a few coats of outdoor-suitable paint.

Think creatively about what you own and how it could be transformed to be used in your garden. You could create a pretty display with recycled jam jars and food tins or turn an old set of shelves into a budget-friendly potting table or a vertical planter. So, whether you’ve inherited an old piece of furniture or simply had the same item for years if they’re in decent condition, then with just a little bit of elbow grease you can totally transform them and your garden.

Add A Mirror or Screening

If there is a dark, gloomy corner in your garden, try transforming it with a weatherproof mirror. Position it to create a focal point where there previously wasn’t anything special to see. In a small, enclosed garden, a mirror can also help create the illusion of space.

Screening is easy to install and will give your garden an instant facelift. We all have an area of our garden that isn’t going to look great no matter what you do – wheelie bins and composters have to go somewhere! Adding some small screens or fences to your garden will give you access to a hidden section, perfect for housing the less attractive elements.
