Small garden ideas: how to create a cosy space

There’s nothing better than relaxing with a good book outdoors on a sunny day in your very own space. Here’s how to make it somewhere you love spending time:

  1. Plant flowers that bloom all year round. This will ensure there is some colour showing no matter what the month.
  2. Consider compact seating. Try hammocks or other fabric-based seating that can easily be folded away and stored inside when not in use.
  3. Think about lighting. Gardens are great places to enjoy at night. Outdoor lamps, fairy lights, or feature lighting can really help create a peaceful atmosphere.
  4. Paint a wall or fence. There’s nothing better than a pop of colour. Choose a bright hue and paint a feature wall.
  5. Add storage. Gardens need storage just like any room in the house. Opt for good quality, weather-proof boxes.
