Add some bold colour to your garden to spruce it up a bit. It's not just about splashing some colour in your outdoor space, it's how you use it that counts. Nothing changes the mood of a garden room faster than the addition of bold, brazen colour. Super bright shades can act as in-your-face design statement, or can be as low-key as you like. Finding the right colour to suit your mood and personality is essential.
