We've put together some of the gardens from properties we are currently marketing to bring you some inspiration for your own outdoor space.
Probably the easiest of gardens to manage is one with just a small peice of lawn to mow. If you lead a busy lifestyle you might want to consider stripping back your garden to this low-maintenance version.
If you want simple outdoor space but would still like a little style, why not try having a separate decked area or draw attention to fences and sheds by painting them a colour that will stand out.
Gardens full of shrubbery can look beautiful, as long as they are preened regularly. If you're particularly green fingered, you might want to consider planting a few extra shrubs to draw attention towards a particular feature in your garden, like our vendors have done with their shed here.
Larger bushier gardens require a lot of upkeep, but so long as you give them the attention and care that they need, they can become a space of tranquility and relaxtion - not to mention the additional privacy!
Use levels and different materials to create different spaces within your garden, much like the decked area in the picture above (top left) that houses an outdoor breakfast table and hot tub.
Borders don't have to be boring either. You can use brick, stone, wood - anything you feel like getting creative with! The jazz it up even more with some soft garden lighting to really enhance the area.
A pergola can be a beautiful feature in a garden and, depending on how you wish to use it, can create a shaded canopy for an outdoor seating area. Use the structure to hang plants, lights and decorations to give it the extra wow factor.
Storing wood for a logburner or open fireplace doesn't have to mean that your shed is full of logs! Our vendors of the above property (top right) have made beautiful use of a small section of their garden by combining log storage with a seating/feature area. Very picturesque and doesn't look untidy at all.
If you have a smaller outdoor space, you have to decide what works best for you. A grassy area in a small garden can be very easy to maintain and can be a great benefit to children; but there's nothing to say a paved garden couldn't work too.
What these three spaces have in common is that they are kept immaculate - and that can make all the difference to how much you enjoy your garden.
Pots can go anywhere and look great. They can add a bit of kerb appeal to the frontage of your home and can even hide eyesores (like these slabs holding down the umbrella).
Great for beginners as you can learn to love gardening at your own pace by keeping just the one pot before moving on to any more!
