Have you ever stepped out of your house and thought your garden looked a little lacklustre? Well, now's the time to tackle it so you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour in spring and summer.

Well, to inspire you we found 19 simple yet stunning gardens you can copy. Each has been designed and curated by a talented professional gardener, so you know you're in safe hands, and we know you'll love the impact these beautiful outdoor areas have.

Just think, with a few hours of hard work, you could be enjoying similar views from the comfort of your sofa!

1. Self contained beds

Make for light maintenance but neat finishes.

2. Stone brick borders

Use stone bricks to create beautiful rustic borders in minutes.

3. Sociable patio

Sectioning off a part of your garden to be used as a sociable patio area will always be a worthwhile investment.

4. Cacti

Cacti make for impactful yet low-maintenance additions that look and feel exotic.

5. Paint your walls

Consider painting your garden walls a bold colour and adding a statement tree.

6. Wooden fencing

Wooden garden fencing instantly revives a garden and adds class.

7. Contrasting path

A contrasting path looks phenomenal and only needs a few slabs and coloured shingle to look perfect.

8. Excellent edging

Taking the time to decorate your path edges will make a massive difference! These topiary balls are the perfect choice.

9. Coloured shingle

Coloured shingle makes even the messiest of gardens look far neater and more contemporary.

10. Easy on the plants

You don't need to go overboard with plants if you have a mature tree. Make that the focal point!

11. Wall niches

These wall niches have inspired us to make more of our own garden walls.

12. Wall-mounted fountain

Small and simple, this wall-mounted fountain adds a stylish focal point to an urban garden.

13. Blurred lines

Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, this enclosed garden is luscious!

14. Painted raised borders

Painted raised borders look perfectly finished and offer a wonderful neutral base for vibrant blooms.

15. Lovely lawn

Never underestimate the impact of some well-cared for grass.

16. Light and colour

Colour and light have been used to create this warm and fun outdoor space, which you could easily copy.

17. Tropical palms

Even if you don't have a pool, we'd love to tempt you with tropical palms for a holiday feel all year round.

18. Skinny borders

Skinny borders look amazing when filled with tall, eye-catching plants. Evergreens will look great whatever the season.

19. Wall-mounted planters

Even if you simply have a courtyard space, add some greenery with wall-mounted planters for an organic, artistic look.
