Simple, Stylish Garden Ideas

If your garden isn’t stylish, you’re not doing it right. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, there are ways you can make it look its best so that it can be used during each season. It doesn’t matter how much or how little space you have, there are ways you can make it look interesting while still keeping it practical and functional.

First things first, you need to utilise the space you have to the best of your ability. Do you have a garden that’s covered pretty much in grass, yet you don’t use it? Then why not consider putting in some limestone paving? There’s not really much you can do with grass other than tend to it and try to keep it as short and as a green as possible. With limestone you open up the garden to so many possibilities, and it’s so much easier to maintain as it doesn’t really require more cleaning. It’s not that expensive either!

Once you’ve got rid of the grass and put something else in, it’s time to think big. One option would be to treat yourself to a hot tub. It’ll look amazing on the new paving you’ve had laid down, and you can get overhead brollies to cover up if it rains meaning it's perfect for use all year round. Not only that, but it's ideal for getting family or friends round and having a good time. You can even get hot tubs with built in lights or speakers, great for entertaining!

From one chilled out idea to another, depending on how big your garden is, you’ll love this next one. There’s nothing better than sitting round on a cold night cuddled up in front of a blanket in front of a log fire. It’ll give you the camping experience, and will be so relaxing for whoever you have round. Log burners really aren’t that expensive either for a cheap simple one, and will keep you and your guests warm if your garden parties run through til later in the afternoon or evening. Get a large sofa outdoor furniture set and you’ll have the most relaxing setup.

It was said in the beginning that a garden isn’t all about the flowers and the grass. But it is the backbone. Some cute hanging baskets dotted around will brighten up the place even when it might seem dark and dingy in the cold and rain. Make sure the flowers you plant in them are winter bright ones, and require as little maintenance as possible. If you’ve kept some of your grass, make sure you’re keeping it trimmed and free of weeds. There’s nothing more unsightly than overgrown grass and weeds sprouting up everywhere.

Making a garden stylish in the winter does present challenges but it's not impossible. If you follow the tips above, your garden will be transformed into a stylish paradise for years to come.
