For your garden design motivation and inspiration, we’ve put together an assortment of the best 25 garden landscaping ideas in this blog. With these recommendations, and more landscaping ideas you can take in the sights of the garden and get mesmerised the next time you sip your coffee or throw a party. 

25 tips to elevate your outdoor space into an oasis

 Arches and Trellis

Arches and trellises can create a stunning focal point in your yard, especially if you have plants with long branches, thick foliage, or vegetables that naturally climb. Not only do they add height to your space, but they also provide onlookers with a lovely, eye-catching display. Utilising trellises in small gardens or patios maximises your space by allowing you to grow more plants vertically, freeing up ground space. To further enhance your garden, consider creating a floral wall within the arches to separate different areas to add depth and dimension to your design. Installing trellises and arches is usually simple, as they are constructed from various materials such as plastic, metal, and wood. You can choose one that best matches the overall design of your garden.

Play Area for Kids: 

Consider your children’s favourite activities when designing a play space. You can incorporate swings, slides, and a sandbox full of toys for them to dig and build. Safety is a top priority, so choose soft surfaces like grass or rubber mats to absorb any falls. You can also install a small fence or gate to keep young children safe and secure while they play.

Vertical planters or modular panels:

If you are looking for some amazing front yard landscaping ideas then vertical planters are great ways to add greenery to confined spaces, such as patios or balconies. Similar to tall displays, vertical planters have several layers on which you can grow tiny veggies, herbs, or flowers. Plants are grown upward rather than horizontally to conserve space. Connected to walls or fences, modular panels mimic large squares. You can arrange certain plants in each area to create a living green wall. Even if you don’t have much area, both options are good for adding some natural beauty to your exterior space. 

Tiles are your garden’s best friend: They offer durability, comfort, weather resistance, and affordability:

Weather resistance and durability are crucial factors to take into account while selecting tiles for the porch area. It is essential to choose tiles that can tolerate external factors like rain, sunlight, and variations in temperature since porch spaces are frequently exposed to these elements. If you live in an area with severe weather, make sure the tiles you choose for your garden are appropriate for outdoor use and have qualities like frost and slip resistance. 

Best Options From Orientbell Tiles

For your garden, consider using DGVT Cypress Wood Ash that gives a natural wood matte finish to the surrounding area and ensures longevity and resilience against wear and tear, hence making them an excellent choice for outdoor areas. The matte finish provides a subtle and modern look, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your space. 

Additionally, fantastic options are available in matte, satin matte, and rocker finishes, with various colour choices such as white, grey, brown, blue, beige, cream, ivory, and pink. Some standout options include OPV Wavo Nero, OPV Arabesque Flora Multi, etc. These ceramic tiles have low water absorption rates, which means they are less prone to damage from moisture and humidity, making them ideal for porch areas exposed to rain and dew. Their durability and aesthetic appeal make them a perfect choice for creating a beautiful and long-lasting outdoor space.

Furthermore, consider Natural Stone Tiles such as Rustica Ntural Stone Cotto made of Glazed Vitrified Tiles. Alternatively, you can opt for tiles made with Digital Paver such as BDP Frames Beige Cotto, or HRP 2×2 Diagonals Cotto

Orientbell tiles offer a plethora of options that provide weather-proofing, slip resistance, and easy maintenance. These tiles are designed for durability and can handle various outdoor conditions. 

In addition, Orientbell Tiles have specially designed heat-reflecting tiles that are ideal for places exposed to direct sunshine and can even have a cooling effect on your interior spaces. You can pick from TL Moroccan 4X4 Beige Multi, which offers a style to the area, or sober ceramic matte tile, like OPV Alekhan Art Brown, which not only cools your house but also helps you save energy.

Composting Area

You need to set aside this area for converting trash from yards, cooking scraps, and other organic items into nutrient-rich compost that enriches the soil. Select a flat, easily accessible site in your garden that is out of direct sunlight to put up a composting area. A plastic container, bucket, or any such item can be used to make a basic compost bin. To expedite decomposition, blend brown elements like leaves and twigs with green components like leftover fruit and vegetables. Remember to periodically turn the pile to speed up decomposition.

Maximising Waste Utilisation

Using “best out of waste” components in your green landscape design is the most economical method to build a garden. In addition to creating a gorgeous outdoor area, it also helps build a more environmentally friendly and sustainable environment.

Get Creative to Recycle Material

Use your imagination and some leftover items to create unique planters for your garden. Some examples of such materials are plastic bottles, wooden crates, and tin cans. Simply drill drainage holes on the bottom, paint the walls in lovely shades, add soil, and grow your favourite plants or flowers. Additionally, you can grow plants like money plants and jade in the broken coffee mug you were tossing away. These repurposed containers not only give your surroundings personality but also cut down on trash.

Wooden Pallets

Using wood in your garden is one way to decorate it and add a contemporary touch. Pallets can be made into benches, tables, or plant stands by sanding and painting them. These accessories provide functionality to your outdoor environment in addition to their attractive appearance. 

Shoe/ Tyre Planters

With a little creativity and some weather-resistant paint, you can breathe new life into old tyres and turn them into colourful planters for your garden. Stack tyres in different sizes vertically to make tiered planters that showcase your plants uniquely and strikingly or arrange them horizontally to create raised beds that accommodate a variety of small shrubs, flowers, and herbs. This way, you can create a whimsical and environmentally friendly garden that displays your personality and adds charm to your outdoor refuge.

Bottle décor

Gather empty glass bottles in different hues and sizes and engage in some homemade crafts.  You can search cupboards, thrift stores, and flea markets for old or abandoned objects that can be turned into garden décor. You can turn old bicycles, vintage ladders, or old metal buckets into plant displays or focal elements for your garden.

Bird-Friendly Features

Consider adding different bird-friendly features to your yard to attract birds. Provide them with a safe place that has nesting spots, food, and water. Plant a variety of flowering plants to attract both birds and pollinators. Set up bird feeders filled with different nuts and seeds to appeal to various bird species.

Install nesting boxes to give birds secure places to nest, and add small bird baths or water features for drinking and bathing. Using native plants can enhance the habitat since they often provide the seeds, berries, and insects that local birds like. Creating layers of vegetation with trees, shrubs, and ground cover can mimic natural habitats, offering birds more shelter and food options.

Paved Pathways

Paved pathways should be designed with your garden’s style and theme in mind, as well as functional features like accessibility and upkeep simplicity. Select sturdy materials such as stone, brick, or concrete, eg. the ones used in OPV Rocky Multi, or OPV Alekhan Art Brown, that can withstand foot traffic and outdoor conditions. The walkways are easier to stroll on when they have intriguing designs or are twisted and turned. You can also put lights along the paths so you can see at night.

Shaded Seating

Large umbrellas or parasols are an easy and versatile method to shade your yard. The shade may be positioned precisely by moving and adjusting it as necessary. Not only can trees and climbing vines add visual interest to your yard, but they also naturally shade your dining area. Plant shade-loving plants all around your eating area to create a lush, pleasant atmosphere. 

Hanging Baskets


Here, the first step is to figure out plants that thrive in hanging baskets, such as trailing flowers, ferns, or succulents. Then choose a cute and strong basket that is designed for hanging purposes. With their beauty, hanging baskets are the best and most simple way to transform any space into a visual delight. Even if you live in a flat with a compact balcony, you can create a stunning outdoor space that brings nature closer to home, where you can relax and unwind.

Water Feature

Have you seen how adorable the garden’s little water fountain looks? Get one from a nearby supply store and incorporate a tiny water feature, such as a miniature pond or tabletop fountain, to add the calming sound of flowing water to your balcony. This place will calm you down after a stressful and demanding day. It also draws butterflies and birds, which liven up your outside area.


Now that you have these wonderful ideas, keep in mind that thoughtful and simple design elements are just as important in creating a beautiful garden as grand ones. They always encourage experimenting and allowing your garden to evolve based on your tastes and experiences.
