How to: zone your garden
Make the most of your outdoor space
Zoning your garden is the decorating trick that will help you make the most of your outdoor space. Whether you’ve got a small balcony or a roaming lawn, having designated spots for gardening, eating and more will help you maximise on every square foot.
You always want to reserve a spot in your garden for dining and this set up is giving us all the right summer vibes. Perfect for spaces where you can’t fit a table, all you need is an old coffee table or a plank of wood and a couple of boxes. Create low level seating with a geometric picnic rug, some cushions and our lovely outdoor pouffes and disguise your up-scaled table with a pastel runner to finish. Voila.
Whether you’ve got a shed or just a herb box on the balcony, this nifty set-up is the perfect way to store all your gardening bits. Repurpose a few old crates by nailing them together and fill with all your knick-knacks. You can make it as narrow or wide as you like and give it a quick lick of paint to spruce it up. And when it comes to your gardening tools, make sure they’re designed for putting on display too. These cream and periwinkle blue ones are pretty and durable, and will give it that country feel.
Whether it’s that patch of lawn that always catches the sun or the quiet spot at the end of the garden, make your favourite corner your new zen retreat. You can go all out with a fancy day bed that’ll let you catch the rays or keep it simple with a bench and a book. That’ll do us nicely.
