Choose a range of different plants and herbs and place in variety of flower pots in similar colour tones to keep your scheme looking natural and organic. If you're short on space choosing a range of potted plants is a great way to add some colour and texture.
3 Fire Pits
Add a fire pit to create a stunning focal point in your garden. Arrange comfy seating and floor cushions with the knowlege you can stay out for longer despite the chill in the air.
4 Outdoor Lighting
Transform your outdoor space with the addition of twinkling lights and lanterns. Adorn a wall or shrub with fairy lights or drape festoon lighting for more drama. Solar lighting is another alternative to candles and there's no need to worry about leaving the lights on all night!
5 Chill out Furniture
Weather resistant furniture is the key to a succesful outdoor 'room'. Rattan furniture is back in vogue and our favourite design is the corner sofa which instantly makes a space more sociable. Wooden benches placed alongside a corner of your garden would work equally well with the addition of outdoor cushions for comfort. Alternatively, jazz up your wooden furniture with weatherproof wood paint in your favourite colour. If you're short on space just add some floor cushions or outdoor pouffes adding a low table and plant pots to zone the space.
Pick and choose any of these tips and your outdoor space will instantly feel more sociable, colourful and welcoming!
