Beautiful ideas and ways for decorating Your Garden easily and quickly

Select the right lighting:

Lighting can make or break any space, and the same is true for your garden. Think about the mood you want to set in your garden – do you want a very bright and cheerful atmosphere or a soft and romantic one? Maybe you want to hang fairy lights from the trees or garden buildings? You can also light certain areas or features such as shrubs. Bright LED lights can help with the first option, and warmer lights or lanterns can create a muted glow if you’d prefer the second option. If you’re a party animal and love to invite guests over to your garden, festoon lights are perfect for outdoor events. At Ultra LEDs, you can find the best UK led festoon lights in a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes.

Include a seating area and firepit:

For evenings spent with friends and family, you’ll want a seating area for everyone to relax in and a cosy fire pit to gather around and even roast marshmallows on. As well as providing a place for socialising and relaxation, this seating area will also be a focal point for your garden and make this space more planned out.

When Decorating Your Garden try a water feature:

A seating area and firepit could be the focal point in your garden, or you could make the defining part of your outside space a water feature instead. This could be a birdbath, which would also provide opportunities for birdwatching, a fountain or even a small pond. The delicate trickling sound of a fountain would create such a peaceful atmosphere, and with a small pond, you could look after some fish if you’d like.

Decorate with plants:

Of course, planting flowers in your garden is an obvious and natural way to decorate your garden. You could have a separate area in your garden where you can practise your horticultural skills and plant some vegetables in a vegetable garden. You could also style your garden by placing and grouping pots around your garden as small decorations. You can find a wide variety of different plant pot styles to suit any garden.

Light some candles:

Candles can add a soft glow to your garden in the evenings and create the perfect cosy atmosphere. In addition, using citronella candles in the summer has the added benefit of keeping pesky insects away. Just make sure to not leave lit candles unattended, especially when children are present.

Think about planting year round colour with perennial bulbs 

When you do actually design your garden think about planting flowers and shrubs that will look good all year round. Choose evergreens or flowers like Salvias which will last the best part of the year. 

Use bulbs so you always get a splash of colour. Choose tulips and daffodils for spring flowers that come back every year. I summer you can opt for summer bulbs such as perennials like agapanthus or lilies. Take a look at Monets Garden for inspiration.
