Design & Decorate your Outdoor Space – it’s all in the details!

Design & Decorate your Outdoor Space – it’s all in the details!


With daylight lasting a little longer each day, now’s the time to start thinking about your outdoor space. Sure you’ll have a long list of essential maintenance jobs to get done, but also allow yourself some time to think about designing and decorating your new look for 2013. We often find clients comfortable with styling their interiors even if that’s just new rugs and cushions each season, but not so sure about bringing those same principles into their gardens.

Try and find a little time this week or weekend, to take a coffee outside and consider what might get you excited. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

{Lounge in Style} – choose sophisticated but comfy outdoor furniture to maximise relaxing time with friends and family. Consider choosing sofas and benches to make outdoor living areas, as well as the more traditional table and chair options for your outdoor areas. We certainly won’t tell you off for eating pizza with your feet up on outdoor sofa!

Design your own {luscious green living wall} – tried walls, backs of sheds, not at all pretty fences can be instantly transformed with a simple easy to self- install living wall. Add two or three Living Wall Woolly Pockets Planters, fill with soil and lushious ferns, fragrance plants or grow your own crop vegetables.

Add interest with {Planters} – easy to add an instant WOW factor to any outdoor space by adding a few funky and chic garden pots. We stock some gorgeous fibreglass planters in all shapes and sizes allowing you to “pimp” your garden easily.

{Paint} a wall or fence with a vibrant colour – consider choosing a colour that will provide a good background to any planting or features that might sit in front. Could you paint a shed, a summer house, a dull wall or even some trellis to really refresh your outdoor space.
