VERTICAL GARDENS

Vertical gardens made a significant impact in 2017 because they are not only visually effective but are perfect for a small backyard! All you need is a spare fence or wall, a frame (try mesh or timber pallet) and some pots. For an even simpler way to create a vertical garden, you can find some kits or vertical planters which you can stack in local hardware stores.

 

LIGHT IT UP

Make the most out of the yard you have created by including some lighting options! You want to be able to appreciate your space at any time of the day, and luckily there are plenty of cost-effective lighting options. Think fairy lights, solar garden lights and outdoor torches. These extra touches can create some tonne and depth into your space and set the mood for the night!
