There are lots of ways to neaten, improve and dress up your outside space that don’t require much time - ring the changes with our five quick and easy garden makeover ideas.
Hide or Disguise With Garden Screens
If there’s an area or aspect of your garden that isn’t going to look great no matter what you do – perhaps wheelie bin storage, compost heap or drainpipe – planted with a cheerful climber Elegance Screens and Drainpipe Covers are a quick and easy way to give an instant facelift.
Add Pots and Planters
Colourful pots and planters can really bring your garden to life – placed outside your door filled with scented herbs or planted with bulbs for the first floral show of the year – they can be placed centre stage when looking their best and then moved or replanted to make way for something else as they begin to fade.
Elegance Pot Holders can be places on screens, trellis or structures to give some interest at eye level and create a Mediterranean feel to you terrace.
Sharpen Up The Edges
Nothing pulls the garden together more than cutting and edging your lawn – everything instantly looks more finished. A manicured look can be hard to maintain but installing lawn edging will neaten up your garden now and over the years to come. You can choose something simple – great for a minimalist look – or more a ornate, decorative style to really dress up your garden.
Add A Standalone Feature
A statement Obelisk, either in the middle of a border or as a standalone feature adds instant impact and draws the eye – plant with sweet peas or roses for glorious scent. Our garden obelisks' subtle colour palette is designed to complement your planting but also act as simple decorative features in their own right - Try using in multiples for real wow factor.
