11th Apr '17 • By Emily Ayers

We’ve put together a list of the 10 best ideas to make your garden to stand out.

Garden Backyard Ideas
1. Build a Wood Crate Sofa

Give your backyard a rustic look and create your very own wood crate sofa. Affordable and relatively easy to make, these sofas make a creative corner for you to relax or entertain guests.

2. Crate Flower Pots

Keeping in line with the crate-like furniture theme, another great feature to add to your backyard is a crate stand for your flowers. Flower crates add simplicity to your garden and are a great way to use vertical space.

3. Hammock

A hammock is an effortless addition that will add a feeling of comfort to your backyard. Grab a book or a refreshing drink and we’re sure you’ll spend more time in the garden with your new hammock.


4. Fairy Lights

This one is our favorite. Nothing beats well placed fairy lights. We recommend that you try decorating trees wrapping lights around trees or hanging them above an outdoor setting. There is no better way to make your yard stand out than by beautiful sparkling lights.

5. Wooden Pathway

Adhering to wooden aesthetics, you can also try experimenting with a wooden pathway that stretches through your backyard. You can also place seating furniture at the end of the path to add function.
