Seven quick and easy ways to transform a courtyard garden
A storage shed – even a small one – will enable you to keep the space clear of clutter. While you don’t need a lawn mower, you will need a trowel and watering can, for example, to care for your container plants. A small shed is the perfect place to store these and it could always work as an extra frame for your climber plants.
6. Think outside the box
Another great way to lift plants off the ground and something a little unique, is a step ladder, with each rung being used for a pot plant, or two. Similarly, you may want to upcycle and use an old tea cup or welly boot as a planter.
7. Attract wildlife
It couldn’t be easier to attract birds and other wildlife to your garden – all you need to do is hang a birdhouse from the wall, a bird feeder from a tree branch or use a bird bath as your centre piece. Not only will it bring your garden to life with wildlife, it will also provide them with food, shelter and water and also add to the aesthetics of your courtyard.
