    Lighting

    Creating the right ambiance in your outdoor area is key to providng a social area that can be enjoyed whenever you like. Lighting is the perfect way to change the mood and look of your outdoor decking area or patio. Solar powered fairy lights, patio lights and ornaments are perfect for the summer months and are an efficient and low maintenance way to illuminate your garden. Fairy lights can be swathed from trees, fences and bushes to create a magical atmosphere in your outdoor space. Candles and Lanterns are also effective at adding a warm and cosy feel to your tables and seating areas allowing you to enjoy a wonderful evening party or barbeque in style.

    Accessories

    The right accessories can transform a garden from a simple seating space to an outdoor room that is an extension of your interior space. Fun and quirky accessories such as doors, gargoyles, outdoor canvases and the good old garden gnome will add a interesting focal point in your exterior space. Large flower pots, urns, troughs and planters are the perfect way to add a splash of colour and foliage to create a ‘lived in’ space that is natural and beautiful. Accessories are also great at creating ‘zones’ within your garden providing themed areas that break up your outdoor space.

     

    Big or small; a beautiful outdoor space can give you a serene and peaceful area where you can escape the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy the warm summer months in luxurious, natural style.
