10 Tips That Will Help Transform Your Garden

When it comes to revamping your home décor, one of the trickiest design challenges – that’s also one of the most rewarding – is giving your garden a spruce-up, especially as the sun starts to come out.

This often-neglected bit of the home might be doubling as a storage space and kid’s zone (and might not have had a clean in several rainy months), but there are lots of easy tips and tricks that will help transform your garden and turn it into a relaxing space where you can soak up the sunshine or a fabulous spot for entertaining friends and family.

Looking for a one-stop shop for a stylish and gorgeous garden revamp? Your local HomeSense has a vast selection of one-off finds that add a unique edge to your space, with lovely lighting and divine decorations to spruce up your garden or backyard.

Even those with small gardens, terraces, front yards or just about enough room to fit a bistro table and chair - nearly! – can maximise their outdoor surroundings by injecting a bit of colour and personality into their gardens and doing some de-cluttering and painting (or maybe even some planting now and again).
