This is a great time of year to pick up some inspiration for your outdoor space. The Chelsea Flower Show has just been and gone, and we still have the Hampton Court Flower Show to come.
Homes & Property picked out some of the top design features that you might want to try and incorporate into your outdoor space if you’re revamping it this summer.
One top idea, particularly if you don’t have a huge garden, is to have a greenhouse that also doubles as a wellness space. Including a comfy chair and space to sit, as well as a potting bench and other spaces for your greenhouse plants means you can enjoy this space when you’re not getting your hands dirty.
Hanging chairs are another garden feature that have become incredibly popular, appearing in many of the gardens at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. The news provider noted that the most famous is undoubtedly the hanging rope-ball swing that was included in the feature garden co-designed by Kate Middleton.
Reusing and recycling old items is another trend that’s appearing in more show gardens. This is great if you’re looking for a way to revamp your outdoor space on a budget too, as you can pick up all kinds of items at junk yards and online that can bring character to your garden.
But all the inspiration in the world may not feel any good if you’re not great at gardening. And given that a survey earlier this year found that 57 per cent of Brits either aren’t very good at gardening, or don’t know much about it, they might need some assistance to get their outdoor areas in good shape.
