Accessories to Adorn Your Outdoor Space this season
After a very harsh and long winter, it seems like an eternity since we last enjoyed the comfort and colour of our great outdoor space. However, with the lighter evenings knocking at our door and the promise of warmer weather, now is the time to start thinking about furniture and accessories to dress your gardens, balconies and courtyards this summer. We have put together our top tips to add a little drama and to freshen up your outdoor space. You really don’t have to spend a fortune to create a visual spectacular.
Yes, you read that correctly, Mirrors are very on-trend in garden spaces. Hanging mirrors on an outdoor wall can create a beautiful illusion of a larger area, especially if the wall is whitewashed. Mirrors work well in a courtyard space and will look visually pleasing when the sunlight dances across the glass and creates a beautiful show of sunbeams.
Adding a Mirror to your outdoors is also a lovely way to upcycle old, tired mirrors for some outdoor shabby chic! Wooden framed mirrors are perfect as you can paint them to match your garden furniture and create a lovely Mediterranean vibe.
A feature wall can be used to create a focal point in outdoor spaces too! Think how creative but simple some of the garden designs are at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. A feature wall can add drama and depth to a large or small space, acting as a backdrop to your garden furniture and creating an intimate, cozy feeling of indoor living space in the garden. A living wall full of plants can give all year round colour and beauty adding that instant wow factor! The Wonderwall vertical garden stocked at Aylett Nurseries maximise on small spaces and build a living wall suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Suitable for perennials, flowering annuals, succulents, tropical plants, house plants, herbs and organic edibles. Just fasten the screws to the wall or fence and hang the planter up. Why not take a look at our Living Wall in the Dahlia Coffee House Garden for inspiration!
Why not liven up your outdoor space with the addition of a small bistro set with a table and two chairs or hanging chair? These chairs are the perfect focal point in any garden and can offer a glorious feeling of relaxation as you sit back and slowly swing to and fro. They also work well used in a dedicated Zen area of your garden, a beautifully quiet spot where you can chill out, reflect and forget about the outside world. Visit our Outdoor Furniture department for the perfect furniture for any size or space.
There is nothing more soothing than relaxing in a garden while you listen to the sound of cold running water on a hot summers day. Many water feature units are self-contained and do not require any install; you can just plug and go, or if you do not have a handy power source close we also have a range of Solar powered water features from Smart garden.
New for this spring, we have extended our range of Kelkay Easy Fountains for you to choose from. These are made from durable resin-stone and are self contained, with no need for a permanent water supply. Just be sure that your chosen area is close to an electricity supply so you can plug it in and enjoy your very own water feature. We also carry a range of fountain cleaners, and accessories to help with the aftercare of your Easy Fountain.
