You might have wanted to redecorate your garden for a long time but didn’t know how to go about it on a budget. With the ideas below, you’ll be able to give your garden an impressive makeover.
Adding a hammock would be a great way to make your garden a space to relax and unwind. This is a perfect idea for any of you with some sturdy trees. A hammock is a simple addition but it gives you an excuse to spend more time outside in your beautiful garden.
Alternatively, if you have a wooden bench of garden chairs you could take on a DIY project to decorate them. With some paint and a nice design idea, you could make an ordinary bit of furniture into a lovely focus piece. Or if you’re not much of a painter you could decoupage your furniture with any design you like.
Fairy lights are perfect for creating a whimsical atmosphere because of the way they almost replicate the stars. Drape them or wrap them around a tree; no matter how you incorporate fairy lights they always impress. For more lighting, you could also add lanterns or mason jars with tea lights at the bottom.
Hanging some bunting or banners around your garden could be a nice way to give the space a pop of colour. Search for bunting that suits the aesthetic of your garden.
You could also take on another DIY project by decorating some stepping stones for your garden which will give the space a personal touch. There are a lot of ways you could go about doing this so you are sure to find a design you’ll like.
There are a number of ways you could go about adding flowers to your garden. You could plant some around the edges or in the centre in small clusters. Or, you could use items like a crate, a picnic basket, a lantern or wellie boots as planters. These ideas will make your garden look quirky and you can have the flowers you want in an interesting new way.
A lot of people have dining sets in their gardens which give them plenty of opportunities to eat and socialise with friends and family. However, a brand new dining set might be a little steep if you are on a budget. Why not take a look in your local charity or thrift shop for some pre-loved furniture you can upcycle?
