Spending time in the garden can be incredibly restorative, especially if you make your outdoor area into your own personal garden sanctuary. Here's how to create your own oasis of calm in the garden...
Use an arch to divide up your garden
Dividing up your garden can actually help it look bigger. The elegant, softwood Somerlap arch provides the perfect gateway into your sanctuary area. Adding climbing plants or flowers to your arch will not only help to increase privacy, it will also add to the feeling of getting away from it all!
Add screens around your garden sanctuary
Tall, fast growing plants like bamboo can provide effective screening. If you prefer something that's less permanent (and easier to maintain), you could add fencing and trellis, which is perfect for creating privacy. Somerlap have a great selection of timber panels including natural willow and hazel hurdles to ornate lattice panels – any of which will enhance your garden.
Include relaxing seating
Comfortable seating is a must for your garden haven. We especially like this stylish hardwood outdoor sofa – perfect for lounging. Or, if you'd like to be lulled into a gentle al-fresco nap, why not try this superb softwood garden swing seat.
