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. After that, the only thing left to do is keep your fingers crossed for the weather to enjoy it... From alfresco dinner parties to sunny Sunday afternoons, our garden ideas include updates both large and small. Moreover, our edit of 10 brilliant budget garden ideas proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to create your dream garden space!

Reflective Garden Ideas

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. Place yours against the wall to create a more spacious feel or introduce the mirror to a flowerbed to reflect your stylish planting scheme.

Summer Stripes

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!

Bistro Set Garden Ideas

Certainly, no garden space is complete without a beautiful table and chair set. Therefore, we had to include one of our favourite designs in this budget garden ideas blog. Although not under the £100 mark, the Black Butterfly Outdoor Bisto Set offers a fabulous design feature, without spending a fortune. For example, the subtle butterfly design at the back of each chair is the perfect way to set your garden apart from the crowd. Perfect for both small and larger gardens alike, we can't think of a better spot to enjoy a romantic dinner al fresco!

Solar Glow

The Climbing Ivy Outdoor Solar Light is one of our must-have accessories this summer. Firstly, it's a fabulous way to make a statement with otherwise unused wall spaces or fence panels.

Bringing instant wow factor, this luxe solar light adds whimsy and wonder to any outdoor space. Moreover, the climbing wall light is ideal for anyone looking to make eco-conscious choices in the garden. Harvesting the power of the sun, the solar light charges throughout the day and brings a beautiful glow to the garden after dark. Unique garden ideas don't get much better than that!

Stylish Seating Garden Ideas

Stylish outdoor sofas and armchairs often come with a steep price tag. Therefore, why not opt for a chic garden bench instead?! The Black Metal Garden Bench is a great alternative and can be introduced almost anywhere in your outdoor space. Style yours as extra seating near your outdoor table or place the bench further into the garden for a secluded reading spot. However, don't forget to accessorise with cushions. In short, you want to be comfortable when curling up with a book or enjoying your morning coffee in the sun. So, make sure you keep lots of cosy cushions on hand to add extra comfort to the Black Metal Garden Bench.
