Stick around for some nifty corner patio ideas, tips on building a rockery, and how to illuminate that gloomy garden corner.
Here we go...
Build a corner rock garden
Pairing rocks and greenery, a rock garden will add a beautiful, earthy touch to your garden.
And knowing how to build a rock garden, whether subtle or bold, is an invaluable skill to have as a gardener.
The process is easy; all you need is:
Rocks (Buy them or use large rocks found locally)
How to build a rockery
1. Set your rock garden’s perimeter with rope before placing anything down
2. Layer the rocks to your preferred height, ensuring they fit together tightly enough to avoid collapsing
3. Once you’re happy with the base rock structure, add soil and your plants from their pots
Get zen with a water feature
Water features bring a slice of zen to your garden, giving you a focal point to reflect amid soothing ambient sounds.
To create a blissful corner garden, pop your water feature in front of a garden bench to take it all in. And if you’re often out after sundown, try a water feature with lighting and bask in the warm glow.
A space for hanging out
Make your garden the hottest ticket in town by cracking out your power tools.
Consider building a bar (here’s how), adding speakers, and voila: your own drinking den.
Garden sofa sets and benches will give everyone a comfy place to sit – offering a much-needed respite after dancing in the moonlight!
A space for (literally) hanging out
Picture the scene: a warm summer evening, gently swaying on your hammock, immersed in a novel.
Well, why not make it a reality with a hammock, hanging chair, or swing seat?
For extra balmy days, pick up a shade sail to protect against the sun’s relentless rays.
Illuminate a shady corner garden
If your garden corner is shrouded in shadows, look no further; we have some shady garden corner ideas to brighten your space.
Patio heaters are the perfect solution to darkened corners, emitting cosy warmth while casting a warm orange glow.
But if it’s soft ambient light you’re after, an LED water feature is just the ticket.
Create a second lounge in your garden
Here’s a corner patio idea you may not have considered: taking the indoors outside by creating an outdoor lounge. All you need is a waterproof garden shelter. Then arrange your garden furniture under the shelter to make a comfy outdoor spot.
Gazebos are perfect if you’re looking for temporary shelter, providing protection from the elements while being easy to dismantle and assemble.
