Turn your park home garden into a cosy haven this winter with our top tips, courtesy of our friends at Gardening Express!

The experts at Gardening Express have outlined their top tips for creating a relaxing ambience and enjoying your outdoor space during the colder months.

If you still wish to use your park home garden for hosting guests, having meals al fresco or cosying up to a nice book on chilly days, then you should consider giving your plot a seasonal update.

Chris Bonnett, the founder of Gardening Express, said: ‘Just because the temperatures have dropped doesn’t mean you have to head inside. Instead, you can embrace the weather by making some cosy additions to your outdoor space.

‘Some of the suggestions include brightening up the surroundings with outdoor lighting and adding more soft furnishings. By doing these few things you can enjoy your garden all year round.’

Here are the eight top tips for a cold weather garden transformation from the experts at Gardening Express!

1 Add outdoor lighting
As the days get considerably shorter, it’s important to brighten the surroundings with outdoor lights. Hanging fairy lights and lanterns will bring a soft glow that will really enhance the ambience of your park home garden. If you’re looking for an inexpensive option then solar powered lighting is a great choice that looks good too.

2 Create shelter
Create some shelter in your park home garden to prevent the unpredictable weather stopping you from enjoying your outdoor space. Some patio cover ideas are shade sails, pergolas, gazebos and covered swing benches.

3 Accessorise with soft furnishings
Outdoor rugs, cushions, and blankets help to create a cosy setting. You can also use the accessories to inject some colour and fun designs into your patio setup.

4 Add an outdoor rug
Outdoor rugs are a great way to make your garden feel cosy and warm. They’re designed to withstand any weather conditions, meaning they are far more cost- effective than purchasing a normal rug.
