Extraordinary Ideas For Your Back Garden

Extraordinary Ideas For Your Back Garden

I always think that the back garden is a key part of your home. A great back garden can add something different and improve the overall look of your house. Want to know how to achieve back garden brilliance? Check out these four tips:


Colourful Flowers/Plants

The key to any great garden is a good use of colour. I love the colour green, don’t get me wrong it’s a lovely colour! But, if your garden is full of fifty shades of green, it’s not going to look too special. Instead, you’ll want to find ways to get lots of splashes of colour in there. When someone walks into your garden, they should be taken aback by the colour. It should be like walking into a rainbow. The easiest way to bring some colour into your garden is with plants and flowers. You can either buy partially grown flowers/plants and replant them in your garden. Or, you can buy the seeds and plant them from scratch. Either way, you’re going to end up with more colour and a prettier garden.

Outdoor Lighting

Many people forget about lighting when it comes to their garden. Why? Because a garden is already in lots of natural light. But, when the sun goes down, your back yard is plunged into darkness. I suggest some nice outdoor lighting to illuminate things when it’s dark. This can make your garden lovely to look at when the sun’s setting. Also, it can make your garden perfect for some late night garden parties with guests!


Paving Options

A great way to spice up your garden is with the inclusion of paving. There are a couple of different paving options for you here. Firstly, you could go for traditional garden paving. Something like a patio or a nice paved walkway down the sides or middle. This will give your garden an extra bit of class and it strangely makes space feel more cosy. The second option is to use something called a grass paver. This is a type of paving that’s truly unique. You lay paving down in an almost honeycomb style pattern. It doesn’t completely cover your grass; you can still see green bits poking through. It’s definitely interesting and gives your garden a completely different look. If you don’t have kids and have little use for your lawn, this paving option is ideal!

Subtle Garden Feature

I often find that a garden feature is a wonderful way to add something to your garden. But, sometimes people can go overboard and have a feature that’s too much. It ends up taking attention away from the rest of the garden. So, I suggest something quite subtle instead. One thing I like is a bird feeder. You can find bird feeders that are really delicately made and look wonderful. Plus, they don’t take up too much room in your back garden. It’s subtle and adds an extra element of class in there.

Pick a few of these tips and apply them to your garden! You’ll soon see how much of a difference is made as your garden goes from zero to hero!
