Decorate Your Garden and Treat the Birds
Well, summer is finally here and if you’ve been thinking about adding some more character to your garden for the hotter months and beyond, we’ve got some great suggestions and ideas to throw your way.
You’ll not only be making your garden a place you, family and friends want to hang out in, but the wildlife too, such as the local wild bird community that likes nothing better than a place to rest their weary wings, refuel and generally chill out.
So here’s our simple guide on how you can cheaply and effectively add some style and practicality to your garden.
The vintage garden aesthetic is very much on-trend in 2019, people are loving the idea of giving their garden the look of simpler times. These ‘Beauty of Nature’ solar lantern lights look amazing with their faux stained glass affect designs – humming bird, ladybird, blue tit and butterfly. Add stately class to any garden with these lights that charge during the day when the sun is out and come on automatically at dusk.
The vintage tin garden planters with their bucket-shape and striking, rope handles add a literal bucket load of retro charisma that goes well beyond what you’d expect from these low prices. Sporting pastel colours, they really stand out placed near lush green bushes, trees and lawns around the garden, forming a feast of contrast for the eyes. Yet they look just as good packed with flowers, in and around flower beds, too.
It’s all very well getting all the amazing decorative items, but don’t forget to look after the birds. Bird feeders, bird baths and nest boxes allow you to personalise your garden, while also turning it into a safe haven for wild birds at the same time.
A personal favourite of ours is the Southwold Wild Bird Nest Box from Petface. It has a delightful shabby-chic styling and comes in a choice of three colours – red, green and blue. The design is inspired by the look of the classic seaside beach hut ,so you’ll have a touch of summer in your garden even during the coldest days of winter.
Wall art is the ultimate way of personalising your garden without spending a fortune, like our radiant Metalwork Butterfly with its beautifully-metallic build and choice of various colours. Why not collect the set for the ultimate garden wall arrangement? With these glistening in the sun on a hot summer’s day, it will certainly create long conversions for those who see them for the first time.
The ‘Nature’ range of bird feeders comes in three gorgeous designs – Poppy, Butterfly and Dandelion – adding plenty of nature-inspired charm to your garden. Ideal when used on its own or in groups positioned in beds, borders and planters.
