Drab to fab: 4 ways to flip your outdoor space
We all have a spot that fills us with dread every time we catch a glimpse of it. Let these four ideas inspire you to transform that space from drab to fab!
Pavers are an easy, long-lasting and low-maintenance solution to a drab space. A stepping stone path is another great option and lets you get creative with mondo grass and pebbles.
If your aim is to create a sleek, modern space, choose a paver with a smooth profile. If you fancy a bit of rustic charm, a paver with a textured, seemingly-aged appearance will do the trick.
When choosing a paver size and colour, keep in mind the size of the area you’re working with. Small and dark-coloured pavers are best for large outdoor spaces. Large, light-coloured pavers create a more open, spacious feel, so are perfect for smaller spaces.
Ever wondered what you can do to dress up a bare wall and add a bit of extra charm to your space?
Why not grow your favourite climbing plant along a trellis? It’s a simple way to turn a blank wall into a beautiful feature and add a touch of greenery to your outdoor space, no matter how big or small.
For quick results, star jasmine or ivy are perfect. You can also try your hand at growing a plant flat against a wall (also known as espalier) including citrus and fruit trees, bougainvillea and camellias.
Nothing turns a forgotten, unused area into a warm, inviting space quite like timber flooring. If only there was an easy way to enjoy timber's earthy appeal...
Meet timber tiles! Not only can you enjoy the natural look of wood in your space, timber tiles are the ideal option for those who can't commit to a permanent floor change (perfect if you're renting). Plus, they’re easy to install, so you’ll have a brand new outdoor space faster than you can say ‘timber!’
We get it. Not everyone has the patience for a golf-course-worthy green. Things like shade, wear and tear, poor or shallow soil, exposure to harsh winds and salt, or simply a lack of time can really get in the way of a lush lawn.
Rather than persevere with a patchy, temperamental lawn, within minutes you can enjoy an artificial lawn that's always green and never needs mowing, which means you get your weekends back.
