You can increase the colours further by planting wild flowers or even investing in ready-planted wild flowers.

Shrubs and bushes should also be a consideration, as they can provide a range of colours during the colder months. Some shrubs may also flower in the winter, providing additional texture and colour to your garden when it is cooler.

Benches, chairs and tables can all add to the colour aesthetic of your garden. Furniture can be painted in a colour to complement your garden. Sheds can also be painted in different colours to provide additional shades. A large parasol in the summer months can be a bold addition to add to the colour of your garden.

Garden accessories

Garden accessories can add interest as well as colour to your garden. Bird boxes, sundials or even outdoor sculptures can bring visual interest, as well as ensuring your garden keeps its appeal during every season. There are a variety of ways that you can bring colour to your garden all year round. The variety of flowers and shrubs, painted garden furniture and colourful garden accessories can all ensure that your garden is a pleasure to spend time in, both when it is warm and when it is cold.
