Design your dream garden – turning ideas into reality

What is a dream garden? Close your eyes and picture it. It’s more than just a patch of grass with a few flowers. This is where beautiful greenery, vibrant blooms, and cosy furniture come together to create a calm oasis. You might want a botanical paradise or a cosy urban retreat. Good news: the options are endless. From small balcony gardens showing off blooms to landscapes highlighted with elegant furniture, it's your choice.

Steps to create your dream garden: 5 tips and tricks

With the right guidance, designing your dream garden is quite easy. Here are some practical tips and tricks to help you bring your vision to life:

  1. Assess your space. Analyse your outdoor area and think about sunlight, soil quality, and existing landscaping features. These details will help you choose your greenery.
  2. Define your style. Are you drawn to modern minimalism or rustic charm? Define your garden style to guide your design choices. Also, think about the design of your house – they’ll have to go together.
  3. Plan your layout. Measure your space and sketch out a rough layout of your garden. Add pathways, seating areas, and focal points like water features or sculptures.
  4. Choose the right plants. Select plants that are happy in your climate and suit your style. Mix and match flowers, shrubs, and foliage for a versatile landscape. See which species your neighbours are growing. This’ll tell you more about the fit between weather or soil conditions and the type of plants chosen.
  5. Add personal touches. Add your charm to the garden design with sculptures, wind chimes, and outdoor lighting.



How to include furniture in your dream garden

Furniture plays an important role in shaping the vibe of your dream garden. Here are some tips for including furniture into your outdoor space:

  • Select durable materials: Opt for weather-resistant materials like rattan, teak, or aluminium. They'll withstand the elements year-round, looking as good as new with minimum care.
  • Create comfortable seating areas: Arrange seating clusters to encourage relaxation and socialising. Consider interesting options like lounge chairs, benches, and hammocks..
  • Accessorise with style: Upgrade your outdoor oasis with cute cushions and throws. Outdoor rugs will add warmth and comfort.
  • Embrace versatility: Choose furniture pieces that can adapt to different activities, from outdoor dining to lounging in the sun.
