Create a covetable courtyardHere’s another small space working hard. The designer has managed to fit in a lot without the garden feeling crowded. A bespoke wooden bench doubles as storage, and a matching console opposite houses a barbecue. Near the bench, a coordinating frame provides scope for a mini green wall. Carefully chosen evergreen planting means it’ll look great even when you’re only tempted to gaze out at it through the window. You’ll either love or loathe the idea of artificial grass, but adding it to a small space that could either get very muddy or simply isn’t suitable for cultivating a lawn does really change the feel of it. Think of it as exterior carpet… Festoon lighting turns it into a lovely spot to while away long summer evenings.

Light upEnjoy your outdoor space a little longer into the evening by stringing up festoon-style lighting. Alternatively, hang up a run of individual solar bulbs for a more eco-friendly version of the festoon look. Also try uplighting sculptural plants to add interest at eye level.Tell us…What quick-fix solutions do you muster to keep your patio looking perky all summer?
