A garden is the best place to connect with the natural world whether it is small, narrow, or long, a cottage or a courtyard garden. If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor garden space, there are lots of inspiring garden renovation ideas that would allow you to celebrate the beauty of nature and a lucrative option to create another space where you can unwind, relax and even entertain.
Best garden designs
There are innumerable inspiring ideas to change your outdoor space. Think about the space and purpose for using your garden, whether for planting trees and growing vegetables, sunbathing, entertaining guests, or simply spending time enjoying a cup of coffee on a cool morning. Take the help of architectural and interior design company, Christopher David Designs which specialises in transforming spaces through residential architecture and design, new builds, renovations, and property designing in Surrey and Berkshire.
Put your garden into shape
Set your garden into shape with the right tools to complete the job. Three important things are missing if your lawn looks dull, which are showers, sunshine, and soil aeration.
- Reduce the branches to prevent too much shade.
- Water once a week early in the morning if there is no consistent rain in the UK.
- Make holes in your lawn with a fork for proper aeration.
- Use evergreen small shrubs like box balls or large evergreen plants like mahonia for a lush-green look.
- Fill the gaps by planting pretty flowering plants that bloom flowers throughout the year.
The style and colour of the paving provide a strong appeal for the entire garden. You can either have a traditional paving style or concrete cuboid steps that demonstrate contrasting hard landscaping with the soft effects of lush planting. Installing circles as a mix of cobbles and setts can provide a stunning effect.
Go for decking ideas for levelling uneven slopes in your garden. Steps can be included, which can be used for dining furniture. Make use of anti-slip and maintenance-free decking boards that offer the beauty and versatility of natural wood.

Creating natural plant barriers
Use plants as natural barriers to noise and pollution as well as gain privacy from the busy road through a mix of pleached trees, green hedges, and colourful perennial plants. This kind of planting increases biodiversity and also provides a beautiful and striking contrast with the surrounding urban landscapes.
Establishing an outdoor living room
Establishing a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors has been a key element in interior and garden design over the past few years as it brings the comfort of a living room to your outdoor space. There is a rising demand for high-end designs from outdoor rugs, and side tables to comfortable sofas and armchairs that make a perfect outdoor setting.
Choosing the right lighting
Choosing the right lighting can create a stunning effect on how you make use of your outdoor space. Perfect lighting can beautifully decorate the area and set the mood if you wish to use your outdoor space for dining.
Check the boundary walls
Your boundary walls, fences, and hedges must look good. They need not look the same but there should be some visual link between them. You may grow climbers in the same colours on the fence. Choose timbre or oak for fencing as they are durable and are used for various garden applications.
The idea behind renovating your outdoor space is to keep the designs simple yet practical, which can evoke a sense of discovery. You can transform your garden irrespective of the size of your space and budget either through big projects like changing its layout and adding more elements or just small changes like planting more trees and foliage. Make your outdoor space an inviting zone where you will love to relax and spend time.
