Garden and Outdoor Space Ideas and Designs

Our gardens and outside spaces deserve as much attention as our interiors – they can provide the first impression of our homes to visitors, a sanctuary to escape to in warm weather and an additional living and entertaining space. While not all of us are blessed with large gardens and bags of outside space, there are plenty of ways of improving what you do have and making it work for you. Perhaps you only have a roof terrace or balcony? You can still get green-fingered with plant pots and raised flower beds, and you can create an outdoor haven with decking, seating, outdoor lighting and various accessories to entice everyone outside. If you do have a bit of space to play with outside, then aside from a lawn in your garden, you could add some extra elements to help you enjoy the space even more. Adding a patio will give you the perfect area for dining, lounging or even a bit of outdoor cooking, and if you choose to go for a veranda you’ll have a bit of shelter from the hot sun or the rain while still enjoying being outdoors. If space and budget aren’t too much of a problem then a swimming pool or hot tub could be next on your list. Take a look at the various garden photos, as well as veranda, terrace and balcony, patio, lawn and swimming pool ideas that are available on Houzz to help you decide what you’d like in your garden or slice of outdoor oasis.

Bespoke Stone Paving is a very popular choice for garden designers as it takes off the limits imposed by standard sizes from any garden design. They are also very practical for awkwardly shaped outdoor spaces. Image supplied by Living Landscapes & Rae Wilkinson
