Immaculate garden with outdoor wicker dining furniture

Immaculate garden with outdoor wicker dining furniture

Position your garden furniture where it’s likely to pick up the best of the sun’s rays. The zoning effect of the step works really well to separate the dining area from the rest of the garden. White walls make the space look immaculate and help keep things bright even on gloomy days.

Traditional garden fence jazzed up with a pink trellis

Add an injection of colour with a fabulous hot pink trellis. This vivid hue looks great against any greenery and when flowers come into bloom, it will be even better. It’s quite hard to find a ready-made pink trellis, but you could paint one yourself to recreate the look. Just make sure your paint is suitable for outdoor wear and tear.

Grey and white patio with a pop of neon

Give your outdoor space a refresh with a simple, modern colour combo. Grey and white is sophisticated and fresh on its own but when a pop of lime green is thrown in, it really feels like summer. Upcycle a tired patio bench by giving it a lick of paint in light grey. Adding an upholstered seat and cushions will give the space a relaxed feel – perfect for winding down on a warm evening.

Garden deck with citrus accents

Treat a garden dining area the same way you would any room in the house – with a little love and attention. Mixing eras can make for an informal, welcoming space. Here a much-loved table is paired with modern classic chairs in a zingy shade of chartreuse green, which looks vibrant among verdant planting. Although the styles are different, the shared materials and forms mean the furniture looks great together.

Garden patio with outdoor sofas and fire pit

Garden patio with outdoor sofas and fire pit

Turn your patio into a social space with outdoor garden sofas. Two modular sofas have been positioned strategically to enjoy this beautifully landscaped garden. A rustic firepit placed between the two means you can enjoy the outdoors and views beyond as the sun sets. The combination of plum, pink and blue cushions adds a welcome pop of colour and picks out purple tones of the lavender shrubs and alliums in the garden bed behind.

Modern garden with reclaimed seating

This garden might be small, but the fact that it’s south-facing means it can be a veritable sun trap. An outdoor living area has been created to make the most of it, with repurposed pallets painted and upcycled with throws and cushions. Gravel is a neat solution in a small space, adding a nice finish to a defined area while helping to cut down on weeds. Lanterns add a touch of atmospheric light come evening.
