As we settle into summer, it’s officially garden season and as always, we can’t wait to take the party outside! Firstly, there’s a certain magic to soaking up the sun in your garden after the grey days of winter. So, it makes perfect sense to celebrate this space as an extension of your living areas inside. In short, introducing beautiful pieces of furniture and garden accessories helps transform your outdoor space into a relaxing retreat.

From alfresco dinner parties to sunny Sunday afternoons, our garden ideas include updates both large and small.

The first of our budget garden ideas focuses on the power of a beautiful mirror. Above all, mirrors in the garden create the feeling of extra light and space. Therefore, opting for a gorgeous garden mirror is a great idea for courtyard gardens and smaller outdoor spaces. One of our favourites is the Windowpane Arch Indoor/Outdoor Mirror. Designed in a simple windowpane style with a subtle arch detailing at the top, this mirror will blend seamlessly into any garden. In addition, the low price tag ensures this design is a stylish steal for summer.

Next up is the effortlessly chic Black & White Stripe Outdoor Cushion. Firstly, cushions are our secret weapon for giving garden furniture a new lease of life. Investing in new outdoor furniture can be expensive, so we always recommend updating your accessories instead. For example, these sexy monochrome stripe cushions will update any bench, sun lounger or outdoor sofa in an instant. In other words, before you dismiss your existing garden furniture, try playing around with styling this summer! Simple chic and always on-trend, striped cushions help recreate holiday beach club vibes in the comfort of home. In our opinion, black and white will look amazing with everything. However, if a monochrome palette isn't your cup of tea, take a look at the beautifully bold Sunshine Yellow striped design instead!
