Urban Garden Ideas


Add a splash of indulgence
An outdoor shower can add a luxe feel to your outside space and a touch of indulgence on a hot summer day, and no garden or terrace is too small to accommodate one.


Gather round a fireplace
Extend the use of your outside space as much as possible throughout the year with an external fireplace. Not only will it keep you warm, it will make a stunning centrepiece. Styling the garden with throws, cushions, lamps and night lights adds to the magic.


Plant vertically to save space
Many urban gardens are long and narrow, so instead of taking up precious footage with high-maintenance beds, create a lush feel with hedges and climbers. These also add softness to slatted fencing and, teamed with classic-style seating and smart, oversized pots, help to create a tranquil urban oasis.


Get in the zone
Creating zones is a clever way to add interest to an outdoor space and make it feel bigger than it is. This garden has a dining table by the house, creating a dining section of the garden which is further defined by the arbour.


Cooking area
An outdoor cooking area means you can rustle up more than a few burgers on a summer evening. This impressive setup includes plenty of storage so you don’t have to constantly bring out cookware from the kitchen.


Garden living room
If you use your garden as an outdoor living room, why not style it like one? There’s a wealth of well-designed outdoor furniture to choose from, plus some indoor pieces work equally well outside. Add to the design with mirrors, exterior paint and candles.


Create continuity
If you have a living area that leads directly onto the garden, create a feeling of continuity by using similar materials inside and out. This gives a sleeker look and also makes the overall space feel bigger. The result is an almost seamless continuation of style and colour from the house into the garden.


Incorporate some shade
Not everyone is a sun worshipper, and shade sails are a great way to create a little bit of cover as they can be put up, moved and taken down as you please. They work particularly well over an alfresco dining table or seating area.


Decking
Steal elements from your interior to add wow factor to your outside space. This design uses contemporary materials to create a stylish but low-maintenance garden. Laid-back garden decking is teamed with super-stylish furniture and colourful cushions.


Garden lighting
Bring a touch of the secret garden to your outdoor space with clever planting and outdoor lighting. The winding pathway, lit by paper tealights, encourages you to venture to the end of the garden.
