If there’s no room to design outwards in your garden why not go upwards instead! Adding a decorative arch can create a colourful focal point that draws the eye and can even create the feeling of entering an outside room as you walk underneath. Try planting with roses, wisteria or jasmine for a beautifully scented feature, and place a bench, garden chairs or sun lounger nearby so you can sit and relax with a cup of tea and take in the full effect.
We have plenty more ideas for adding atmosphere to your garden. Pick one or two garden ornaments to add a bit of character, or some solar lights to make a feature of a tree, fence or pathway. A chiminea is also a great addition if you want to eat outdoors, while also adding heat on a cool evening.
A garden shed doesn’t just have to be used to store your lawn mower, though it’s the perfect place to hide it away along with your garden tools when they’re not in use. It can also double up as a workshop or hobby room too.
Don’t forget you can always bring the garden inside. If you’re not great with houseplants, try some artificial flowers for an eye-catching floral display that lasts and lasts.
