Achieve a cascade of colour with this tiered wooden planter design

Compact cascade planter, £79.99, Forest Garden

There has been somewhat of a vertical revolution taking place in cities around the country over the past few years, with walls of buildings, indoors and out, sporting lush green walls to rival a tropical rainforest. Although many of these installations would be impossible to recreate at home, there are plenty of ways in which you can jump on the bandwagon and introduce vertical planting into your outside space, whether you have a large garden or just a small balcony. Green walls are becoming an increasingly popular feature in gardens, and the benefits of larger systems still apply – they can be fed by stored rainwater, provide habitats for insects and even help to insulate the building to which they are attached. Popular plants include ferns, grasses, ivy and succulents, but herbs, vegetables and smaller fruit such as strawberries can also thrive.

About Your Home Magazine

Isn’t it funny, no matter how many years ago you left school, September always comes with an air of new beginnings and fresh starts. Whether it’s the kids going back to school, the older ones leaving home and heading off to Uni, or just us grown-ups fancying a new lunchbox for work or a fresh new look for our home. So if you’ve got the itch to make a few changes around your home, we’ve made sure there’s plenty to inspire you in this issue. On page 36 we take a look at the hottest trends on the high street for the coming season. From cosy woodland touches, glamorous metallics mixed with sultry dark tones, chic and simple Scandi-inspired pieces or flamboyant florals, we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want to add to your home to freshen it up for the months ahead. And, if your kitchen or bathroom floor needs a bit of an update, then check out our guide to the latest flooring designs that are both pretty and practical (p.48). Don’t forget to check out our gorgeous bathroom makeovers too for even more great ideas to steal (p.24). Meanwhile, if your kids have flown the nest, and you’re considering downsizing, then do read our essential guide on page 106 to see if it’s right for you. Even if you’re not planning any major decorating projects this month, you can still get in the ‘back to school’ spirit, with our brilliant recipe ideas (p.100). Go on treat yourself to a new lunchbox and spoil yourself with our tasty lunchbox treats!
