picture-11 Own a terrace or even a small balcony? Create an instant garden!

Spontaneous greenery is the key here and planters are the way forward because nothing creates the feel of an established garden quicker than lush foliage.

You don’t necessary need flowers to add color to your garden. You can swap decking and concrete for tiles and, inspired by Turkish pools, create colorful paving with a difference. You can alternatively use outdoor carpet tiles in bright colors, even a fake grass look will do.

Brighten up with bright new accessories and bold furniture to add fun to the space. Pillows, an umbrella or canopy, pottery, colorful candles are a great easy ways to create a bright garden.
