How to Transform Outdoor Space

With the summer months quickly approaching, an ideal scenario involves being able to comfortably invite guests around to enjoy your outdoor space or simply kick back and relax in a tranquil environment. If your outdoor space is looking a little jaded and you’d like to freshen it up and make the most of the space available, we have put together a guide to help transform it into something special.

How to Transform Outdoor Space

Plants

One of the easiest and most instantaneous ways to tidy up your outdoor space is to carefully select plants that will be low-maintenance as well as eye-catching. If you have a large outdoor space then a populous amount of plants can demand a lot of upkeep, but if you enjoy gardening then it can be more than worth your while. If you’re looking for plants that require less work then border plants, window boxes, hanging baskets and potted plants are an easy way to inject some colour and vitality in your garden without overwhelming you with pruning. You can use plants to distract from spaces in your garden that you want to hide or to highlight other structures, such as lining your fences with plants.

Lighting

Something as simple as lighting can enhance your outdoor space in the evening and create ambience. You can use lighting to illuminate the entrance to your outdoor space and complement your furniture areas. If you have a gazebo, garage or garden room then you can use solar lights, hanging lights, tea lights or fairy lights to highlight your structures and make them stand out.

Focal Point

Having a focal point in your garden is a great way to draw attention to certain areas and improve certain parts of your outdoor space. Investing in a gazebo, fountain, fire-pit or a hot-tub are noticeable garden accessories and simply painting an object in a bright colour can attract attention too. You can then dress up focal points with extra lighting and plants.

Garden Rooms are an attractive and practical focal point to have in your outdoor space. Lidget allows you choose the type of materials your room is built with and you’ll have a choice of colours to complement the rest of your outdoor space. It gives you an extra functional area open to possibilities, a focal point in your garden that can be accessorized and another vantage point to enjoy your garden from.

Patio/Decking

By installing a patio area, you can transform your garden and the way you view your outdoor space. Patios allow you to have more integration between your interior and exterior space and they are practical areas to have seating, dining equipment and social gatherings. You can use eye catching flooring material to make your area stand out and become a focal point of your garden. It is especially useful if you do not intend to do a lot of gardening in your outdoor space and want a minimalist look with limited maintainance.
