As you all know, I am a big fan of colour around the home. I find beautiful bright colours really help to lift my mood and instantly make me feel happier. But colour doesn’t have to be restricted to your house, why not add some colour to your garden too? We recently moved into a new house and the garden is currently very bland, I cannot wait to get started on it and add lots of colour!
Below are five easy ways to add some colour to your garden this summer…
1. Add colourful plants
The easiest and probably best way to add colour to your garden is with plants, flowers and foliage. One of my all time favourite flowers are tulips, they are just so pretty and come in lots of different varieties and colours. So you can choose to stick to your favourite colour, or add a rainbow of tulips to your outdoor space. I like to purchase tulip bulbs online ready for planting in autumn.
2. Plant pots
Try adding some new plant pots to your garden to add some colour. If you’re on a budget why not do a little DIY? Use a good quality outdoor paint and upcycle your existing plant pots. It’s fun to do, cheap and really effective!
3. Bright garden furniture
Colourful garden furniture is a great way to add a pop of colour to your garden. I would recommend having a look on Pinterest as there’s lots of amazing ideas on there. As I mentioned above, if your budget doesn’t stretch to brand new items you could upcycle your current furniture set with a lick of paint.
4. Paint your patio
Why not paint your patio or decking area to inject some colour? You could also paint your fencing in a contrasting tone for a really fun outdoor look. It can be time consuming painting fencing and decking though so it may be worth considering a paint spray gun to speed up the process.
Another fun option is to use a stencil on your patio slabs. This is an inexpensive way to really transform your space.
Once you’ve added some colour to your patio or decking area, you may want to consider adding some decking rope. This is an inexpensive way of adding a natural, yet unique look to your outdoor space.
5. Incorporate fun accessories
Finally, add some more colour to your garden with accessories such as cushions, outdoor rugs, lanterns and other ornaments. This is a great option if you just want to add some subtle pops of colour.
