Here are three of our favourite quirky décor ideas for your small garden area.

You may think that designing a small garden is a simple affair. In reality, the smaller the space the more you need to have every centimetre of your area well-planned.

Whether it’s a place for you to unwind after work or an area for kids to play, no home is complete without a garden.

With a little design know-how your small back lawn or petite courtyard can become an enjoyable space to relax and spend time.

Here are three of our favourite garden décor ideas from Smart Homes for Living display homes, that will take your space from okay to impressive.

Vertical gardens

Do you have a blank wall or a bare fence that needs beautifying? A vertical garden works great for small areas and are a clever way to make the most of your outdoor space. Arranging varying height and sized leafy pot plant collections will give your outdoor space a fresher, more sophisticated look.

Rendered planter boxes with built-in seating

Dividing your garden up into sections can be very effective in small outdoor areas. Incorporating a built in seat into a raised planter is a great way to provide extra seating and maximise the use of your space. Inject your personality by adding cushions to create a cosy, welcoming look.

Inviting deck with a fire pit

There are few things more welcoming in an outdoor space than a fire pit. If outdoor entertaining is what you are looking for, why not give your small garden a big boost of style by adding a fire pit as a focal point? Combined with the raised deck, it can make the small yard feel larger and more usable.
