The secret is in the maximum color, it is true that it is a renovation that requires investment. Although if you are good at carpentry tasks you can organize a family project to make a pergola and from there, decorate with vibrant colors, place some garden chairs, a sofa suited to the environment, decorate with vibrant colored paper screens, and create if you want a small artificial lagoon where to transmit the zen feeling of this decoration.


This is a proposal that is totally recommended to enjoy pleasant times outdoors, we are talking about hammocks, of course, since they allow us a comfortable posture while enjoying contact with the fresh air and the landscape that we surrounds.

Tables for patios and gardens

The well-decorated patios and gardens can serve us practically all year round, either to work or to sit there for a drink. In this, the purchase of a garden table plays a very important role, since choosing it is easy when we know what we are going to use it for.

Circular garden table

If we are going to use the table to eat with friends, then you must be clear that the one you are going to choose must be circular. Many people think that rectangular tables are best, but these tend to separate diners making the meal a little less fun. On the other hand, with a circular table, all the diners can see each other and chat perfectly.

Auxiliary tables

If we want a table to be alone reading a little, then we can buy a corner table or a small round table. With this type of surface, it is more than enough to place a glass, a tea, the book, and some decorative element.

Minimalist tables

If you want to have a futuristic space, then you can put garden tables according to this style. You can find hundreds of minimalist tables, made of metal, wood or a mixture of both if you search a bit on the internet. These tables are generally rectangular in shape.

Vintage tables

We suggest you use the vintage style. If you have a table that you are giving little use to, redecorate it and use it again a little more according to your liking. This type of furniture looks great in the garden, and it is one of the most economical options that you can choose.

Even tables with traces of rust can look very nice among the greenery.

Stone paths and slopes in patios and gardens

Creating a country-style atmosphere in the garden is perfect to accentuate the contrast of the exterior with the interior. Using stone, concrete, or wood to create stairs and paths is perfect for adding interest to the garden.

This is a small patio, but having a stone path to one side, with nothing in its way, gives the impression that it is more spacious. The path leads to a raised stone patio and water feature, making it a place to relax. The wooden fence and pergola complement each other perfectly with the stones used.

Interspersing beds with soil

Many times there is a lack of space in the patios and gardens. There is no need to fill everything with plants. You can keep a spacious and bright space and maintain vegetation in certain areas.

This garden has an English design, doubling the useful space. Gray stone pavers alternate with bricks. This asymmetry creates a feeling of spaciousness, the floor also has an interesting texture achieved with the mixture of materials used.

Curves and stones in patios and gardens

To add appeal to a garden, try curves, stones, and a decorative piece. Without a doubt, the shapes of the garden do not have to be straight.

Divide spaces into patios and gardens

This garden has a great design and a stunning image. Small, practical and beautiful. It has two important areas: where the table is, and where the bench is further back. It is not a very large garden, but nevertheless, having two areas divided by steps, it seems spacious.

Order in patios and gardens

This is a cheerful garden, to sit and have tea. It is very well designed, so that there are no bare spaces, but it does not seem like a chaotic garden, full of things, since the design is orderly, symmetrical, achieving a sense of peace.

Artificial grass

This space includes artificial grass and has a quite artistic and geometric design. If your garden cannot have grass due to lack of sun or some other reason, you can always resort to this type of solution, if you accompany it with a nice design, it can look very good.

Diagonal tiles

This is a small fenced yard. Despite being small, it has an optical illusion that makes it more spacious, through the diagonal tiles. This is a trick to keep in mind if you have a very small garden or patio.

Recycled doors

The use of recycled material in the decoration of patios and gardens is one of the alternatives that we must always take into account. Every fence needs a gate or gate, and if youre on a budget, the best solution might be to recycle something from a junkyard that costs relatively little. Perhaps you can find a door to recycle and add a touch of interest to the patios and gardens.

A door is a focal point that leads from one garden space to another. Doors not only mark transition points, but also create an enclosure and make a room private. Close the door to keep out the sounds of the street and passing traffic, or simply to feel like you are secluded in your own little paradise.

Courtyard and garden indicators

I have been looking for ways to pinpoint what is planted in a patch of garden soil while the plant is still growing. The truth is that the markers or indicators that I have found in gardening stores leave much to be desired, they are sticks with a plastic tab with a white sticker or a white box. Really unoriginal and very ugly, it was a great disappointment.

I expected to find black or chrome metal gauges with pretty silk-screened leaf or vine shapes. Or I even thought of making them my way with wood and painting them to my liking, with colors that contrast with the plant once it grows. Here are some very original ideas that meet the expectations I had.
