Wonder Walls – take your garden boundary from banal to blockbuster


Sometimes we’re so lost in the joy of what’s in the garden that we omit to consider what surrounds the garden, forgetting that the appearance of the walls and fencing that enclose our outdoor area can have a huge impact on the overall ambience of a space. Lending them the same consideration as you would the planting or the garden furniture can be a gamechanger. Break free from boring boundary walls with our guide to creating the perfect exterior backdrop…


Make that fence fabulous

If a fence demarcates your outdoors space, more than likely it has the natural appearance of wood or it has been stained one of a multitude of browns. Opting instead for a deep grey or black fence stain or fence paint can transform it from utilitarian to unique. These rich, dark hues are the perfect accent for lush planting, allowing zingy greens and fabulous florals to steal the show. Create change on a budget with Ronseal Fencelife or Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback.

If black and grey don’t suit the energy of your garden and utilising a colour is more in keeping with your style Ronseal FenceLife Plus boasts a delightful collection of colours, chosen to uplift and compliment garden spaces. Teal and Midnight Blue are shades that work wonders to transform shabby fencing into fabulous fringes.

Pick up a paintbrush

Using paint to transform a surface from dejected to designer is quick, cost-effective and customisable. The days of masonry paint being limited to colours from the exterior paint collections are long gone – masonry paint in any colour is possible thanks to the extensive paint mixing potential of our trusty paint machines. 


Choosing a paint colour for your boundary walls which compliments existing features such as the colour of your house, your patio, decking and planting can tie all these separate elements together into a considered and cohesive scheme and inject fresh life into your garden space. Ronseal Garden Paint can be used to revamp or disguise wood, brick, terracotta or metal.

Alternatively, create a striking focal point with an infusion of carefree colour on a feature wall. Draw the eye and excite the senses with a splash of bold colour sure to emphasise the radiant sunshine of summer and bring joy in the darker days of winter. A wall of zingy lemon yellow, spicy orange or hot pink can create a captivating central backdrop to your garden.

Evoke the ambience of treasured holiday memories and infuse your outdoor space with the colours that transport you to another time and place. Usher in Grecian vibes with blue and white or embrace the warmth of Morocco with a rich terracotta, it’s truly amazing how powerful colour can be.


Marvel at a mural

The transformative power of a mural can’t be underestimated. A painted mural can bring bold or delicate colour, abstract shapes or figurative designs and instill a truly unique element of artistry into your garden space. A harbinger of joy throughout the year, a mural breathes new life and energy into a garden. So why not take the plunge and let your creativity run wild?

And now your walls and fences have been given a makeover, it’s time to get decorating to take them to a whole new level!

Light ‘em up

Solar powered lights are a fantastic addition to walls and fences alike, creating bursts of light, intriguing shadows and accentuating the movement of plants and grasses. Fix Solar 3 Lumen Wall, Fence and Post Lights directly to your wall or fence to create nighttime ambience, dot solar stake lights along the wall to outline your garden, trail string solar lights across walls and fences or direct Mega 10L Spot Light beams onto the wall to generate an ethereal feel.

The magic of mirrors

Add intrigue, capture reflections and give the illusion of more space by using an outdoor mirror. In gardens, mirrors create a stunning fusion of style and functionality becoming both decorative and an ingenious aid in generating a window effect, magicking an unexpected view. The Arcadia Garden Mirror creates the illusion of a palladian window. Dotted along a wall these mirrors add delightful intrigue.

Birds & blooms 

Decoration can be more than ornamental – if you want your garden to become a haven for wildlife, embrace the potential of the vertical aspects of your garden and invite nature to take hold. Hang some birdboxes on your wall or fence, Sunnydays Wooden Bird Boxes come in a variety of joyful colours, perfect little pops of colour which have the added bonus of inviting feathered friends into your outdoor oasis. Planters and baskets too can be wall-mounted – cascades of flowers tumbling from the Oceana Faux Rattan Basket or billowing out from the Etika Planter Pot amplify the potential for planting in your garden.
