10 ways to turn a Garden into Paradise

10 ways to turn a Garden into Paradise

If you’re wondering how you can incorporate some luxury garden decor into your own outdoor space, then you’re in luck, as it’s actually a lot easier than you might think. Here, we’ll be sharing some of the best ways to achieve paradise in your own garden just in time for summer!

1. Add Privacy with Garden Screens

Need to have a chat with your partner or a friend away from any nosy neighbours or prying eyes? Adding a garden screen will not only give you that extra bit of privacy, but will help create a cosy and stylish corner to your garden. Available in a wide range of styles, patterns, colours, sizes and materials, you’ll easily find the perfect garden screen to suit your space and your personal preferences.

2. Include Glamorous Mirror Wall Tiles

If you have a plain wall or fence in your garden, spruce it up with some glamorous mirror wall tiles. These tiles are a great tool for reflecting sunlight in a desired spot and creating gorgeous patterns around your home. They can also help make a smaller garden look bigger while adding a fun point of interest.

3. Add Warmth and Drama with a Fire Pit

It wouldn’t be a paradise inspired garden without a fire pit. While you may not need to feel the heat with this year's sun, it can still add a dramatic feature and a warm area to socialise in. Depending on the type of fire pit you get, you can even cook on it or toast some marshmallows to enjoy in the cooler months too.

 

4. Create a Comfortable Seating Area

You’ll need to create a comfortable seating area if you plan to spend long periods of time relaxing in the sun, or, if you’re a social butterfly and enjoy entertaining guests frequently. Adding benches, an outdoor corner sofa or chairs to create a cosy nook will make your garden feel much more inviting. Decorate the seating area with colourful, patterned cushions for a chic style and add an outdoor rug to tie the whole look together. 

5. Add an Outdoor Kitchen and Table

Adding an outdoor kitchen and dining table is an increasingly popular trend and offers a fantastic place to relax, and enjoy home-cooked meals or a cocktail or two just like the Islanders. If you’re limited on space, there are other alternatives, such as investing in a luxury BBQ and a smaller, bistro-style table instead. Or, you can build a simple bar area for a statement-making spot to entertain.

6. String Up Fairy Lights

Lighting is a quick and easy way to add some atmosphere to your garden and set the mood for any occasion. Hanging fairy lights from trees, fences, walls or garden screens can be done in just a few minutes. You can also feature lanterns on any steps or tables, as well as candles for a warm, flickering glow. If you want to go the extra mile, installing, LED lights into any steps, sleepers or posts will illuminate your garden in an effortlessly stylish way.

7. Invest in Plants and Foliage

For a relaxing green space that will help to attract wildlife and add different shapes and textures to your garden, make sure to include plenty of plants and foliage. If you want to make your garden feel like a tropical paradise, choose palm trees, bamboo, ferns and other large, leafy plants. If you have a smaller space, or simply don’t have the time to maintain a lot of plants, screen trellis planters are the perfect alternative, which allows you to add instant privacy, height and style to your space.

8. Place Some Sun Loungers

While most of us, unfortunately, don’t have the luxury of lounging out in the sun all day, placing a few sun loungers in your garden will still be a worthwhile investment. Whether you want to take a lunchtime nap in the sun or spend the weekends or bank holidays reading a book while working on a glorious tan, sun loungers are comfortable, relaxing and a must-have for any paradise garden.

9. Separate Sections with Arches

If you want to define the different sections of your garden, such as the seating area, fire pit and dining/bar areas, use garden arches to separate and frame and entryway of your space. Modern and sophisticated, arches can help add the finishing touches to your garden and add a unique design element.

10. Feature a Stylish Pergola

Pergolas are perfect to add over a patio area or a part of the garden which might require some more shade. These elite decorative features will instantly transform your garden into an outdoor retreat. Add some sheer voile, fairy lights, plants, cushions and blankets for a beautifully cosy space that you’ll never want to leave.
