Ideas for using wood in garden decor:

  • Wooden pallets: These are, without a doubt, the perfect item for gardens and outdoor areas; the idea is to re-purpose the pallets to create small, bespoke pieces of furniture. From tables to sofas, almost anything is possible. One of the more note-worthy ideas is to use pallets to create a vertical garden for small outdoor areas or balconies. All you have to do is apply a suitable wood treatment for outdoor use. Then the pallets can be painted to add a dash of colour, or varnished to achieve a more rustic effect.

  • Wooden chairs: pretty much any old, unused wooden items can be given a new lease of life as unique decorative pieces. An old chair can be re-purposed as garden decor. The options are endless: apart from their use as actual chairs, you can dismantle them and use the wood to create clever decorative features.

  • Wooden crates: nowadays it’s easy to come by wooden crates. Fruit boxes and crates can make wonderful planters for your garden decor project. Remember though, it’s important to treat the wood first, and give the crate a look which suits your outdoor area. Then just fill it up with soil and plant some pretty flowers.

Giving your garden a makeover with re-purposed wood is a great way to exploit your home’s outdoor space.
