Hanging baskets and pots

If you have limited space or are looking to create an indoor garden, hanging baskets and pots are a practical option.

Hanging baskets take up less ground space, providing a sense of depth to your home or garden. There are various types to suit different mounting positions, so you'll need to consider how you want to display the plants.

Remember always to choose the right pots for your situation. For instance, if your hanging plants are outdoors, baskets or pots with drainage holes will help keep the plant roots healthy.

Plus, it’s smart to think about what your pots are made from. Hanging planters may be ceramic, plastic, porcelain, clay or concrete. You can choose the planter that will best suit your style and taste while providing an optimal environment for the plants you want to grow.

If you are renting or don't want to drill holes to hang plants, there are plenty of ways to hang pots that don't require permanent installation, meaning they’re an ideal way of creating beauty and nature without loads of maintenance or effort. 


Wind chimes are an exquisite addition to any garden, infusing the space with a melodic harmony that dances on the breeze. These delicate ornaments not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the garden but also create a serene ambience, transforming outdoor spaces into tranquil sanctuaries. As gentle gusts of wind pass through, the chimes sing, their soothing tones evoking a sense of calm and tranquillity. 

With a variety of designs and materials to choose from, wind chimes offer a versatile option for personalising garden decor, whether it be a whimsical touch amidst vibrant flowers or a subtle accent in a peaceful corner. Their subtle presence adds depth and character to the outdoor environment, making wind chimes a timeless and enchanting choice for garden adornment.


Birdbaths are a simple water feature that provides a place for birds to groom and drink in Australia's hot and often dry climate.  For anyone wanting to attract wildlife to their garden, a birdbath is a simple way to increase the amount of fauna in your yard. There are lots of different styles to choose from, meaning there's bound to be a birdbath suitable for your home. 

The birds might not find the new water source immediately, but as you observe your garden over time, you'll find that more and more species are attracted to the yard.

Additionally, birdbaths provide a place for birds to socialise and meet, while elevated birdbaths, such as pedestal birdbaths, also help to keep birds safe from cats. Stones or rocks placed in the birdbath give smaller birds somewhere to perch during their daily grooming. 

Water features

A water feature adds a sense of peace and serenity to your garden — what is more calming than the sound of running water?

Water features are a stylish addition to both indoor and outdoor gardens. Outdoor water features can be as simple or elaborate as you choose. For instance, you might incorporate a garden statue with your water feature to add artistic flair to your yard.

Installing a water feature doesn't have to mean a lot of digging. In fact, in most cases, you won't need a plumber. It's a DIY garden decor project! As long as there is access to electricity, you can install a water feature yourself within a couple of hours.

Wine barrels

A wine barrel has many potential uses in your garden. A wine barrel can form an outdoor table, with shelving installed for storage underneath. When cut in half, it can even act as a container for a wide variety of plants, including pansies or tomatoes.

This versatile garden feature can evolve from one use to another during its life in your garden, providing a rustic look to an outdoor courtyard or balcony. Other uses may include a patio table holding artificial flowers, a fire pit, or an ice bucket to hold drinks in summer. The options really are limitless. 

Garden statues and art

Incorporating statues and art into a garden is an inspired choice, infusing the outdoor space with elegance, character, and a touch of whimsy. These sculptural elements serve as focal points, drawing the eye and sparking intrigue as visitors wander through the garden's pathways. From classical figures to contemporary abstract forms, statues and art pieces add depth and visual interest, complementing the natural beauty of plants and landscapes. 

Whether nestled among lush greenery or placed strategically on a pedestal in your lawn, they offer a unique opportunity for self-expression and storytelling within the garden. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these artworks can evoke emotions, provoke thought, or simply serve as a source of inspiration, enriching the sensory experience of the outdoor environment.

With endless possibilities for customisation and placement, statues and art undoubtedly elevate garden decor and transform outdoor spaces into captivating galleries of creativity and beauty.
