Romantic suburban gardenTraditional Garden
The new lawn makes the garden seem bigger and deeper. It's a shallow garden with a point to the left, now concealed by trees and the swing seat. New planting contrasts purples, greys and greens.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Make your furniture multi-taskWhen is a swing not a swing? When it’s a beautiful wooden swing seat. If your kids like to sway, but you don’t have space for a proper frame, a wooden rocker like this would be the perfect option. Similarly, a fabric hammock tied between two posts, or attached to a portable stand, is a fabulous source of fun.
Tuck in a swing seatIn a small garden, a great way to add interest and pleasure is to bring in some movement, and a swing seat really fits the bill. You just can’t walk past without trying it! But it’s not just swing seats that will encourage you down a path – any seat will do the trick and there’s a huge range available, from flatpack to hand-crafted.Locate your bench or seat so you can enjoy a great view of another part of the garden, especially a focal tree or a big, colourful summer border.
