Six garden feature ideas

Whether you’ve got an acre or a patio area, chances are when it comes to your garden, there’s always room for improvement. And you’d be surprised, it doesn’t take a lot to transform your outside space and make it a more attractive and enjoyable place to be. 

Water Features

From fountains and bird baths, to building your own water garden or fish pond, a water feature can turn any garden into a calm and relaxing haven. And because they are generally self contained and re-circulatory, you can enjoy the soothing sounds of water without worrying about wasting it. 

Garden Screens

Decorative garden screens look great and are easy to install yourself. Best of all they can be used for a variety of purposes, including creating some extra privacy, dividing your garden into zones, hiding a problem area or simply adding some style and personality to your garden.

Bird Baths and Feeders

Bird feeders not only help to support native birds, but they can also be an attractive addition to your garden. Bird baths provide an oasis for birds to bathe and play and are a great source of entertainment and education for the family too. They are also an eye-catching feature that won't take up too much space.

Statues

A well-placed statue can create an interesting focal or talking point in your garden. And with so many materials to choose from, including stone, concrete, terracotta, bronze, glass, lead and ceramic, you’ll be able to find the perfect piece for your outside space.

Archways

Whether you want to create an inviting entrance or divide areas of your garden, building an archway is a great way to achieve this. With a range of modern and traditional designs available, you’ll be able to choose the right style to suit your garden. Great for training vines and supporting hanging baskets, archways can also be used to add structure and height to your garden. 

Lanterns

Lanterns are one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to create atmosphere in your garden or patio area. They are perfect for when you want to relax and entertain and make the most out of long summer evenings. Well-placed lanterns can illuminate colourful flowers and allow them to be enjoyed at night as well as during the day.
