These lengths of branches pushed into the soil and topped with circular mirror tiles catch the sunlight to illuminate a border.

We love the idea of using a screen to line a water feature – clever!

Brighten patio pots with stakes

Simple but oh-so effective, and a great way to add spots of a punchy colour to your plot.

Grow a living wall for birds

We love this wall of nesting boxes in Dobbies’ green sanctuary, creating a swanky home for feathered friends.

Disguise your bins

This easy-to-DIY wooden structure turns a front-garden eyesore into a bloom-tastic feature.

Ground pots with pebbles

So simple, but so effective.

Add a bowl of blooms

There’s hardly a coffee table at Chelsea without a wide bowl of dainty blooms, and these shallow planters look far more lovely than a pots.

Plant up your firepit for summer

Never bother lighting your firepit in the summer months? Us neither – so turn it into a pretty patio feature with logs and bedding plants.

Light stakes

See border blooms in a whole new light by illuminating them for a divine after-dark display.

Grow clematis in a pot

This unusual new clematis ‘Bijou’ is mound-forming but still boasts ludicrously lovely large blooms, so it’s a showstopper in a patio pot.
