For many the back garden is the space that transforms into another room during the warmer months. However, even when decorating with a view to bring the spirit of your interior to the outdoors, it’s important to keep in mind that the primary beauty of any garden lies in its vegetation. Today we are offering up some tips on how you can decorate your garden but also enhance the natural beauty that lies within.

First, think of what you are dealing with

Back gardens come in all shapes and sizes. Big may be beautiful but many forget the advantages of owning a small space. For one, little gardens require a lot less maintenance. Also, as there isn’t much to decorate, it’s far less of a project to overhaul the décor entirely every once in a while. However, one key step before deciding on your decorative options is to assess the space you have to work with and plan accordingly. One great tip for small gardens that are a little low on vegetation is to plant vertically. Colourful kitchen corianders make for great hanging baskets, giving you a chance to great a floating garden wherever. A simple wooden pallet can also make for a great flower display with minimum fuss.

Choose your furniture wisely

When it comes to choosing outdoor furniture, the size of your garden will once again become a factor. A folding deck chair is a great way to add flexible seating, but if you are looking for something a little more personalised, DIY garden benches offer up a more individualized mystique. These can be as simple as some hardwood planks laid out on cinder blocks. If you are looking for other furnitures that have a little more craftsmanship to their makeup, you can find a range of exquisite options on Pacific Compagnie.

Add character with ornamentation

More than just a simple aesthetic addition, the right garden ornament is also a guide for the eye. A hanging lantern placed just so on your favorite garden tree can entice dinner party guests to a secret corner filled with warm light. Metallic sculptures can add a peculiar contrast that also enhances the feeling of otherworldliness that is so easy to create in outdoor green spaces. We advise caution in this aspect however, as there is a tendency to overdo it and crowd the space with too many interesting details. A light touch is best, where the natural beauty of your plants, flowers and trees are left to take center stage.
