Gardens are always a big selling-point for buyers, so if you have one, it’s important that it remains on trend.

Regardless of your available outdoor space, there are many ways you can modernise a dated garden to keep it looking fashionable through the seasons.

Incorporate On-Trend Plants & Water Features

Cactus gardens, tall planters and interesting water features are all popular components of a modern garden in 2022.

Whether you opt for a tranquil waterfall or exotic and colourful plants in a variety of different textures, you can make a big visual impact with nature.

Not only will a well-kept garden add value to your home, but it will have a positive effect on your mental health.

Make Your UPVC Decking A Centrepiece

Modern homeowners love our UPVC decking, not only because of its low-maintenance qualities, but for the number of fashionable colour finishes available Furthermore, it makes the perfect contemporary alternative to timber decking.

Once installed, you can add statement furniture with colourful cushions and other accessories. You could perhaps even include a grilling station or a pizza oven, which is all the rage in modern outdoor spaces.

A recent project saw the Lakeland Verandahs team install decking around a pond full of tropical fish, cordoned off with our beautiful glass balustrades, making a truly modern design statement.
