Outdoor ornaments

Adding ornaments to your outdoor space is top of our summer garden decoration inspiration list. Whether you choose kitsch gnomes or a timeless statue, ornaments are a great way to add some personality to your garden. What's more, they're low-maintenance, last all-year round, and won't need replacing for a good few years.

Garden mirrors

A great addition to any garden, but best for increasing a sense of space in smaller outside areas, garden mirrors are this summer's must-have. Providing stunning reflective views if used in the right way, they're a great way to add a new dimension to your outside space.

Hanging baskets

Perfect for brightening up smaller outside spaces, as well as your front garden, hanging baskets are a classic for a reason. From fuchsias to petunias, there are a huge range of flowers perfect for hanging. You could even grow tomatoes or strawberries in your basket.

Light it up

Liven up your garden this summer with some lighting. There are plenty of options to choose from - including lanterns and light-boxes. Or, for added atmosphere, you could add some LED or glow in the dark solar lights. Citronella candles are also a great way to take your garden to a whole new level - and they'll keep the bugs away during you family BBQ, too.

Perfect planters

The ideal way to plant herbs and flowers whilst avoiding dreaded weeds, planters are just what you need to brighten up your garden this summer. From terracotta to wood - planters can be made from a whole range of materials, depending on your taste and style. Whatever you choose, they're sure to add a sense of charm to your garden.
