Simple ideas to brighten up your garden

Garden Mile Team
March 10, 2021

At Garden Mile we love our gardens and each one of their uniqueness. We are always looking to be inspired by your DIY projects and interesting ways of making your garden feel like yours. There is so much to play with and we appreciate some projects take time to be complete. We have put together 5 of our favourite quick fixes to add colour to your gardens.

1. Painted Tin Cans
Grab your old rusty tin cans and give them life with new paint or patterned contact paper. It's an easy project you can do at home in any weather.

2. Reuse Old Wellies
When it's time to change your old wellies, give them new purpose by colouring them and using them as planters. These make a lovely display grouped together or hang on your fencing.

3. Bright Coloured Cushions
An easy upgrade if you don't want to get your hands dirty. You can grab a few coloured cushions from your local home décor shop (preferably waterproof versions) or give a fresh makeover to your old cushions with new sleeves.

4. Spray Painted Bike Wheel Frames
Find yourself a few different sizes of wheel frames and paint them to match your garden's colour theme. When arranged together it can make an interesting focal point. You can also add circular coloured glass for more visual appeal.

5. Colourful Swinging Hammock
This one is by far our favourite and most easiest upgrade. Once installed, you can enjoy long summer nights listening to music with a cold drink in your hand. Perhaps digesting a few chapters from your favourite reads.
