Improve your home by enhancing its outdoor space

Freshen up your garden or patio with our inspiring ideas
A cinch to open and retract, Hillarys’ awnings are fully motorised, available with sun and wind sensors and come in over 60 durable fabrics in widths of up to 12 metres, priced from £1,595

While many of us put a lot of time and effort into the insides of our homes, this enthusiasm often stops at the door. Upgrading outside space tends to be an afterthought, which is a shame as even minor improvements can make a big difference. An attractive, wellplanned garden doubles as an outdoor room during good weather, so whether you have a decent-sized plot or a tiny courtyard, consider whether features can be added or updated, or if a complete redesign is called for.

This free-standing garden seating area incorporates automated aluminium louvres that turn to allow sun in and close flat to keep rain out, from £500 per square metre, www.umbris.co.uk
