10 easy garden ideas
Create a contrast in the garden
Large expanses of one material at ground level can make your garden look stark. Combining several materials is a simple way to create interest. It can be easy to get carried away when faced with the vast available choice of hard landscaping materials, from ornamental aggregates to paving and decking. But do try to resist the temptation to mix up lots of different textures and colours. Paving stones are the ideal choice for creating an all-weather, hard wearing surface. Use bricks and blocks as edgings to complement slabs or gravel areas.
