How to Inject a Flash of Colour into your Backyard

If the winter weather has you feeling a little grey, one of the best way to brighten your mood is by injecting some colour into your life, either through your outfit choices, through interior design, or through your garden. In this blog, we explore a few inventive ways you can make your garden more vibrant.


Invest in an outdoor rug

If you have a concrete patio, a great way to give it a splash of colour is to line it with a vibrant outdoor rug. Outdoor rugs are made from weather proof materials, such as nylon, polyester and polypropylene, which makes them resistant to mould, mildew and UV rays. Outdoor rugs come in many different colours and styles, so you’ll be sure to find one that complements the overall look of your outdoor area.

Create a feature wall

Another fantastic way to inject colour into your backyard is with a feature wall. You may choose to paint or tile the entire wall, or focus on a specific section of it. If you’re feeling really creative, you could even decorate it with a mosaic, paint a mural, hang an outdoor tapestry over your wall or illuminate it with a coloured light.

Experiment with paint

Of course, your backyard wall isn’t the only thing you can colour with a lick of paint. Use your painting skills to transform plant pots into works of art, turn your generic outdoor furniture into strikingly bold centrepieces, and even beautify overhanging eaves and gutters.

All about ornaments

When trying to add colour to your backyard, ornaments and other trinkets are essential ­­– especially to give it a bit of personal character. Choose an overall design aesthetic or theme for your backyard so that your ornaments are not mismatched, and stick to a few key pieces to ensure your outdoor area doesn’t look cluttered. Some classic ornaments include lanterns, water features, ornamental stones and even toadstools.

Coloured concrete

Coloured concrete is a great way to liven up your patio. Whether you want natural looking exposed aggregate, made of many different coloured stones, or smooth concrete in a vibrant brick red, coloured conctrete will make your patio pop.
