It’s so incredibly hot across Australia at the moment, that the last thing we probably feel like is going out into the garden.  But the heat won’t last forever, so here are 5 garden decor items that you can add to your garden to instantly improve the look and feel.

Planter Box

White Planter Box

White Planter Box available from Hamptons Style.  Put a tall topiary tree or a pot of hydrangeas inside this classic planter box for instant garden appeal.  Would look great either side of the front door or on a deck or verandah.


White Obelisk available from Interiors Online.  This traditional style obelisk is made from western red cedar for durability.  Obelisks look stunning with white iceberg roses growing through them.


Roman Urn Rust Pot

The Roman Urn Pot in rust from Bunnings.  This pot is a classic shape and the rust colour would look so good surrounded by lush green foliage.
