Five garden feature ideas

Whether you’ve got an acre or a patio area, chances are when it comes to your garden, there’s always room for improvement. And you’d be surprised, it doesn’t take a lot to transform your outside space and make it a more attractive and enjoyable place to be.

Water features

From fountains and bird baths, to building your own water garden or fish pond, a water feature can turn any garden into a calm and relaxing haven. And because they are generally self contained and re-circulatory, you can enjoy the soothing sounds of water without worrying about wasting it.

Garden screens

Decorative garden screens look great and are easy to install yourself. Best of all they can be used for a variety of purposes, including creating some extra privacy, dividing your garden into zones, hiding a problem area or simply adding some style and personality to your garden.

Bird baths and feeders

Bird feeders not only help to support native birds, but they can also be an attractive addition to your garden. Bird baths provide an oasis for birds to bathe and play and are a great source of entertainment and education for the family too. They are also an eye-catching feature that won't take up too much space.

Statues

A well-placed statue can create an interesting focal or talking point in your garden. And with so many materials to choose from, including stone, concrete, terracotta, bronze, glass, lead and ceramic, you’ll be able to find the perfect piece for your outside space.
