Tips to Transition your Garden to Autumn

For many of us, our gardens will have had a great deal more use than normal this year. Aside from the run of warmer than average weather calling for all BBQ’s to be dusted off, our outdoor spaces have been adapted for use as everything from home offices and classrooms through to outdoor gyms, yoga studios and ‘Tik Tok’ dancefloors. However, the Seasons are charging on and we are now well into Autumn with falling temperatures and shorter days. This doesn’t mean that we all have to retreat inside though – there are plenty of ways to transition your outdoor space at this time of year for maximum use.

The easiest way to create a cosy, welcoming outdoor space is to take the indoors out – existing furniture can be dressed with bountiful cushions and throws, tables can be decorated with vases of Autumnal flowers and hidden corners filled with mirrors and fairy lights. Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to invest in a ‘little something’ towards the project…. Maybe a vintage trunk in which to store those extra jumpers and blankets? Or, perhaps, a bench on which to stargaze?

You could be looking for small changes to make a difference. The Mediterranean blue wall that reflected the bright sunshine so well could be updated with a rust colour to give your space an Autumnal accent, the wooden bench or shed that is starting to look a little tired could benefit from a new coat of weatherproof stain to see it through to next Summer, or a selection of brightly coloured pots and planters could be artfully arranged outside a window to be appreciated from indoors. Or maybe you’re itching for a slightly bigger project such as building a permanent outdoor fireplace or seating area, creating new patios and pathways or constructing a sheltered outdoor space for year-round use. Either way, take a moment to sit outside and browse our website for inspiration – the new Garden section would be a great place to start……
