Top 10 Garden Décor Ideas for Summer

The warmer weather is finally here, and that means you will probably be spending a lot more time in your garden! So why not do a bit of decoration to create a beautiful and relaxing outdoor space to enjoy? Here are our top 10 garden decor ideas to get your garden looking lovely this summer!

1. Garden Ornaments

One simple yet effective way to decorate your garden is of course, garden ornaments. You can easily place these and arrange them around your garden however you like! You might want to decide on a general theme or style to make things look cohesive. We think these bird, fox, rabbit and squirrel ornaments are adorable and would be perfect for a woodland theme!

2. Bright Flowers

There’s nothing like some flowers to brighten up a garden and make it feel summery. There are so many different types of flowers to choose from, you can choose flowers that match a colour scheme or create a flower rainbow! Hydrangeas are a great choice of flower if you want something that makes an impact. These Large Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangeas are bound to get some compliments! Or if you want a pop of yellow to really get that summer vibe, these Climbing Rose Gardeners Glory are a beautiful choice.

Or if you have more of a green thumb then you can plant your own flower seeds and watch them grow! You can also check out our blog here where we highlight some great flowers and plants to grow in the summer.

3. Unique Planters

For your flowers you will of course need some nice planters. But you don’t need to stick to the boring, generic plant pots. And there are lots of cute and unique planters that will make your garden stand out! This adorable Cow Planter and Dog Planter will add some uniqueness to your garden. And they are made from upcycled metals making them environmentally friendly too!

4. Artificial Plants

Artificial plants are a great garden décor idea, especially if you aren’t great at watering your plants! You can go for a hanging style, such as these beautiful hanging baskets which will bring a lovely bit of brightness to your garden. We love this Multicolour Petunia Artificial Hanging Basket and this Multicolour Pansy Artificial Hanging Basket.

Or you could try these topiary balls for a more modern feel. You can get hanging ones like this lovely Hazepurple Topiary Ball, or this Rose Topiary Ball if you prefer a bit of pink. Or you can opt for some freestanding topiary balls to place around your garden, like this Duo Artificial Topiary Ball or this Trio Artificial Topiary Ball for more impact.

5. Add an arch

A wooden arch is a great way to add a feature to your garden. And you can even decorate the arch with flowers and lights! You can go for something like this Blooma Chiltern Round Top Softwood Arch, which is made from responsibly sourced timber! Or this Blooma Cottage Apex Softwood Arch for a different shape. You could even plant climbing flowers around these arches!

6. Water Feature

Is there anything more relaxing than the sound of a stream? Adding a water feature to your garden is a great way to add a bit of serenity! You can try something simple and modern like this Contemporary Round Water Feature or this Cascading Fountain Water Feature if you want something more substantial. It holds 35 litres of water and has 18 LED lights to give your garden a calming, ambient feel.

Hanging some lights in your garden is a great way to give it a warm, cosy feeling, especially if you’re having people over in the evenings! These Butterfly Spheres are unique and beautiful and you can put lights inside. And they are made from upcycled metals too!

One of the most simple yet effective garden decor ideas are string lights. There’s nothing like some string lights to give your garden that warm, welcoming feeling. And you can drape them over your fence or over plants and trees. You can go for some classic white lights, or some multicoloured ones to jazz it up!

9. Create a cosy corner

Creating a cosy corner is one of the most practical garden décor ideas, as you can also use it to chill and entertain guests! And you can customise it as much as you like using furniture, lights, cushionsblankets and more! You can even get this Heated Scatter Cushion, made from waterproof materials with three heat settings to keep you warm on those cooler evenings!

For seating, something like this Sicilie Corner Unit is perfect. It has wide seat pads and soft back cushions making it great for relaxing. Also you can add a parasol in case it rains like this Junior Roma Parasol & Weather Cover. You may also want to add a fire pit for extra cosiness, like this Aspen Fire Pit.

10. Jazz up your fence

Is your garden fence looking a bit tired? Why not spice it up with a new lick of paint! And you don’t need to stick to the generic brown. Add some colour to make a statement! How about this beautiful Beach Blue or Sweet Sundae shade?

Also if you are artistic, you could try painting patterns!
