Make the most of your out­doors with Cupri­nol’s clever ideas for an in­ti­mate out­side spot

Colour works In Blighty we’re not blessed with the best weather, but paint­ing with bold, bright colours will en­sure you cre­ate an invit­ing space all year round. This is an es­pe­cially good idea if you don’t have a lawn that nat­u­rally adds a hint of colour. Paint fenc­ing, deck­ing, pa­tio sets and pots in eye-catch­ing, co­or­di­nat­ing shades – in a small spot, you can af­ford to be dar­ing.

Plant smart Al­ways plant for your space and think about scale and size. If your area is on the small side then avoid vig­or­ous plants that re­quire lots of prun­ing, cut­ting back and shap­ing. Fern plants are fan­tas­ti­cally low main­te­nance and are per­fect for in­ject­ing a hint of green. Use block-coloured pots to make them re­ally stand out against the fo­liage.

look up Small spa­ces are a chal­lenge, both in­doors and out­side. It’s all about clev­erly max­imis­ing the room you have – look up and think ver­ti­cally! Hang­ing chairs can be stored when they’re not used, mak­ing your gar­den more func­tional. Choose fur­ni­ture that can dou­ble as stor­age, such as a gar­den bench, and keep the floor clear by putting up shelves – they’re not just for in­doors.
