Ways you can plan garden decoration for your house

'From garden furnishings to decking, lighting and Waterfeatures, we have you covered'

If you are seeking ways to decorate your garden, this article is for you. It is the dream of many homeowners to own a beautiful garden. There are many ways this can become a reality. When this is achieved, your garden space can become a place of relaxation and lasting peace. You can use coloured pathways, water fountain, decorated flower pots, beautiful furniture, enchanting lights and composite deck to create a blissful garden. Gardens can also boost your home resale value. So let's show you how to decorate your garden.

Deck Garden

Growing your plant or garden bed on a deck is a good way of beautifying your garden.
Composite decking in a garden
It is very valuable if you live in a place with restricted space or exposure to sunlight. It is a very productive way of planting your crops, reducing the infestation of pests and parasites. You can grow anything on a deck container. We recommend composite deck material, a low-maintenance alternative to wood. It is more durable and eco-friendly than most decking material.

Made of recycled plastic, contact with the soil will have minimal effect on the composite deck. It will not crack or rot due to moisture because it is water-resistant.

Garden furniture

Garden furniture can add luxury to your garden. Some garden furniture examples are chairs, couch, tables, fire pits, heaters, loungers, and swing seats - the experts advise durability when picking garden furniture. Also, important is the spacing and arrangement of the garden furniture. If your garden is large enough and there is sun exposure, consider getting a dining table to create a communal seating area. In periods where the garden furniture is not in use, ensure they are properly covered to prevent damage.

How do you know which furniture is right for your garden? Take a look at your garden. Ensure your furniture blends with your garden style. If you are looking for a private retreat, consider smaller comfortable furniture sets. While if you plan to use your garden area for a party and get-together, consider furniture with more prominent features.

Let's explore the types of furniture and their suitability:

Wooden furniture

Wooden garden furniture is known for its natural beauty. They are very comfortable and come in various colours and styles. Most wooden furniture manufacturers utilise modern treatment methods to improve the wood's resistance to harsh weather, strength and durability.

Metal furniture

Metal garden furniture is strong, durable, reliable and can withstand weather elements. There is something grandiose and eye-catching about ornamental furniture made with metal. They are part of garden aesthetics.

Plastic furniture

If you are looking for a contemporary and water-resistant material, then go for plastic furniture. They come in a wide array of colour. Plastic furniture is also very budget-friendly and affordable, though they are prone to fade and discolouration.

Garden lighting

Garden lighting creates an appealing entry point to your house. It illuminates shrubs, trees, flowers and accentuates the beautiful features of your garden. Garden lighting contributes to your outdoor spaces, especially when your deck is properly lit up. It also enhances your garden's atmosphere, creating a hospitable atmosphere for your home exterior and gardens. The beauty of a colourful garden light can be viewed from inside your home, but passersby will appreciate it better. This will add to your home's curb appeal.

Garden lighting can also play another role boosting the security and enhancing the safety of your home. With proper garden lighting, visitors and loved ones can easily traverse your garden space without difficulty. It also discourages crime and burglary.

Here are some garden lighting tips:

- You can use your garden light to mark pathways, garden bed and other parameters.

- Garden light illuminates dark space. Place them near colourful plants to create a charming atmosphere.

- A good source of garden light is an outdoor fireplace. It can give the garden an inviting look.

Water fountain

Water fountains can help improve your garden and decking or patio areas. They are not only restricted to traditional gardens. An outdoor water fountain can create an aura of calmness and serenity in your garden. You can find water fountains in a variety of styles and designs on several online stores.

We recommend you to get a solar garden fountain, as they are low maintenance and energy-efficient. Solar fountains add stylishness to your garden, and they are affordable. They draw their energy from the sun. This means the use of the solar garden fountain will not have an impact on your utility bill.
