Making the most of your garden this summer

In the UK more of us are investing time and money to ensure that we make the most of our outdoor areas in summer time. Even the smallest of outside spaces can be made into a retreat with a bit of planning and creativity. Covering a small garden area by laying one flooring product such as wooden decking, artificial grass (in difficult to grow/mow areas) or garden tiles can work well. Using the same tiles both inside and outside your home will reduce the visual divide between your home and garden.

Vertical plant pots can help to draw the eye upwards, giving the illusion that a space is larger than it is. Introducing a living wall can transform a shabby wall and introduce wildlife into a garden. Mirrors at the end of a path or on a whole wall can also make a space seem more extensive. Creating small garden pockets which only become visible as you move around the garden will also give it the illusion of being larger than it is, this can be achieved through using dividing walls of plants or hard landscaping. Using bold colours on plastered wall such as magentas and bright oranges can also bring an extra element into a smaller garden and work well next to softer planting such as long grasses.
