If you think gardens begin and end with a few nice plants and perhaps a well-placed tree, you couldn't be more wrong. There are endless accessories and additions that you can install in your garden to really get the most out of it. To prove it, we've found just a few!

From perfect patio furniture to brilliant barbecues and something for the kids, we think you'll look at your outdoor space in a whole new light after this. And guess what? You won't need to call your gardener or re-mortgage the house to complete any of these fabulous project ideas. Bonus!

1. A pretty lounging pod is the perfect place to relax after a day of tending your plants and the ideal shady spot for avoiding the midday heat

4. Garden ornaments really perk up a space, especially when they are style specific. We love the idea of hidden Buddha statues in a Zen garden!

9. A small potting station is ideal for any gardeners that like to keep their garden ship shape without dragging dirt into the house

10. Don't overlook the traditional shed when thinking about your garden. You never know when it will come in handy! The perfect place for storing tools, lawnmowers and muddy wellingtons, they also look super cute

11. For long, lazy weekends, we think a hammock is the best way to spend time in your garden. Grab a book, a bottle of water and enjoy!

12. Having somewhere you can comfortably eat in your garden is an idea that's worth it's weight in gold. Breakfast on the terrace? Yes, please!

13. If your green fingers have lead to you growing some vegetables, a greenhouse will be a natural addition to your garden. Look for styles that will complement your home
