HOW TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL OUTDOOR SPACE

Think and plan What do you want to use the space for? Big gatherings with friends, eating outside for two, three or four – or for moments of solitude with a cup of tea on a sunny day? Think about how to capture the best of the sunlight: are bright mornings your favourite? Or golden afternoon/setting sun?

Demarcate the area Use walls and fencing (existing or new) to anchor or enclose an area – a corner of the garden can create a focus. Define the area with features such as big pots or planters, sleepers, trellises or flower beds. A bed of plants of different heights creates a softer, more intimate backdrop. A clever trick is to incorporate capped edges or indents into raised beds to create space-saving seating. Brighten a wall by threading a trellis with vines or flowering climbers or fixing small potted plants in brackets at different heights.

Remember the weather Do you need the shade of a tree or a high trellis or will a parasol do? If it’s a windy spot think about a windbreak of shrubs.

Furniture If you plan to linger, go for comfort (and cushions!). The new breed of all-weather faux wicker is longlasting and good-looking, and there’s no need to bring it inside in winter.

Create the mood Good lighting is a must: candles, lanterns or strung fairy lights (with access to power). Use solar lights to cast a glow in container plants.
