Statement outdoor artwork
This backyard patio is part of the garden. Trees, shrubs and potted plants immerse the seating area in nature. The garden decor sticks to a colour scheme inspired by the gorgeous floral art piece. The green and blue shades in the decor help to tie the garden and outdoor seating area together into one cohesive space.
If you’re going to spend the summer working in the garden, it’s important to have a way to enjoy it. Prioritising seating in your garden decor is one way. It could be a swing, hammock or outdoor dining area, just as long as there’s somewhere to lounge and enjoy the garden view.
Classic garden arch or arbour
Is there a more timeless garden decor idea? Garden arches and arbours are easy ways to create a focal point in the garden. They’re a favourite for climbing plants like honeysuckle, climbing roses and hops.
Some garden arbours are placed over a path or entryway, as shown here, while others may incorporate seating or planters. They can be made of wood, vinyl or metal.
