5 IDEAS you need TO TRY
1 SPLASH AND STEP
Fancy yourself a brickie/ cement renderer? Then have a go at making a fountain and shallow pool like the one here. And why have one spout when you can have three? Not to mention a pathway of pavers which appear to float as they cross the pool.
A trick of the eye! Outdoor mirrors, carefully positioned, will add depth and dimension to small spaces. Just be sure to place it to reflect the garden, not toolshed!
Live on a busy street? Solve the problem with a fountain. It will dull the sound with a gentle trickle of water, making your outdoor time more enjoyable.
An outdoor tap can double as a screened-off passion vinecovered shower. So put your hose away and let your guests cool off in style with fancy soap and guest towels at the ready.
POND IN A BOX
This nifty feature fits on a small balcony or patio. Just build a box, waterproof the inside with pond sealant materials then apply one extra coat of sealer than is recommended. Fill with water and aquatic plants. Enjoy!
