  • Country cottage-style patio garden with built-in L-Shaped seating

    An L-shaped seating area has been built into this patio garden in a pale brick that mimics the colour of the brick wall. A pale wood and metal table and chair set complete the arrangement, with added cushions that provide comfort. A vase of flowers adds a pop of colour to the neutral scheme.

  • Country garden with brick wall and church view

    Create a natural looking border in a country garden with plenty of greenery. When you have a beautiful church view like this, you don’t need to plant up every centimetre of wall space. A few trailing plants or a well-tended tree are enough to add interest above ground level.

  • Large country garden with sweeping lawn

    This beautiful country house benefits from a large expanse of lawn. The grass is in excellent condition, but the garden doesn’t have an overly manicured look, with large trees and shrubs running along its edges. Close to the house, the owners have gone in for some topiary with small bushes carved into a neat round shape.

  • Country garden with curved wooden bench

    Position a garden bench near to your house so it’s easy to get to with your morning cuppa. Think about where you will enjoy the most sun, too. This bench sits near the house so it benefits from a view of the whole garden – it’s such a great spot that the dog couldn’t resist.

  • Garden dining area with Moroccan-inspired textiles

  • 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.

  • Garden decking with architectural succulent bed

    Swathes of garden decking can be a little dull. Potted plants will add character, but a cleverly laid succulent bed will add a truly architectural feel. This one is completely built-in so that it sits flush to the top of the decking.

  • Lush raised flower beds with a street-style garden light

    Not only do raised flower beds look amazing, but they are also easily accessible. For those of us with bad backs, this is very good news indeed. Keep things interesting with a mixture of plant heights. Year-round greenery is a good thing to aim for so your garden looks interesting even in winter.

  • 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.

  • Classic garden with neutral painted shed

    If your shed is looking a little run-down, why not give it a refresh with a coat of paint? If you want your structure to be unobtrusive but smart, choose a neutral colour for your garden. This earthy shade has a very natural look about it, which sits well with all the plant life in the garden.

  • Garden with easy-access dining area on raised patio

    Looking back from the far end of the garden, it’s clear that this house has a good flow from the inside to the outside. A raised patio offers an easy-access surface to step out onto and creates a wonderful dining area, too. Potted plants add life to this grass-free zone.

  • Perfectly planned hilly garden with three levels

    Don’t write off a sloped garden. Outdoor space is a wonderful thing so it’s really worth making the most of. This garden has three different levels, which makes the plot so much more manageable. Artificial grass is another key ingredient if you want a fab-looking garden without the effort.

  • A festive welcome with Christmas-decorated garden

    Greet one and all with a festive first impression. Set the scene with potted trees, berry swags, a bench painted in jolly red and candlelit lanterns. A touch of fake snow, festive branches, ribbons and hanging stars and baubles all add to the Christmassy feel and will ensure guests are in the holiday spirit by the time they arrive at your door.

  • Cabin-style porch with woodland decorations

    Decorate a cabin porch with rustic woodland decorations. This quaint entrance has been adorned with an abundance of rich green foliage, winter berries and scarlet blooms. The rose and ribbon wreath, pots of cyclamen and gathered holly are striking against the slate grey background and drum up a traditional Christmas spirit. A vintage trolley will help guests with their luggage and piles of presents.
