Even on a tight budget a small garden can be brought back to life with some simple and creative ideas.
By adding a little colour, even vibrant ones on reclaimed materials, such as palettes the effects can be stunningly good. Old tyres can be brought to life making seats, planters or even toys for the children to play on.
Experiment with different floor finishes and textures in your garden, by placing coloured slabs of stone or concrete into beds of coloured gravel.
Yet the easiest way to add colour to your garden is with plants, lots of them and with careful planning you can create fantastic effects.
So get outside this weekend and think of all the possibilities.
