Eco-friendly gardens – 7 ways to create a sustainable outdoor space

Content Author

Grey is out in 2023 as we move into more natural colours. Browns and taupes are bang-on trend, reflecting a warmer colour palette than previous years. But perhaps the biggest must-have for a garden is sustainability.


The size of the space you have has a massive impact on what you can do and how creative you can be – both in terms of furniture and greenery.


Some very clever design tricks, such as vertical planters, can help transform even the smallest of outdoor spaces.


Garden furniture can sometimes be an overlooked aspect of outdoor living. Of course, you probably want to focus on creating a lush garden with lots of beautiful foliage.


Adding the right outdoor furniture and fittings (such as fences and gates) can massively impact the overall look and feel of an outdoor space. It can even help to create your very own backyard oasis.


You want the perfect blend of high-quality garden furniture to enhance the appeal of your outdoor space and bring comfort and functionality for you and your guests.


Complemented with seasonal plants and colour,  your garden can become a haven of peace and tranquillity.


To help inspire your 2023 garden transformation, we’ve put together a list of products sure to add some sunshine to your outdoor space – even if the clouds have already rolled in.

1. Windsor - Extra Large High Planter - Heritage Screen

£652.50 (RRP £725.00)

interest free credit available on purchases over £1000

These all-weather durable planters are fantastic for adding a touch of beauty and greenery to any space. The planters are available in five different sizes, so you can add height and depth to your garden, without taking up too much space.


The screens are available in three different colour options, but we love the ivory colour, fitting in with the theme of natural tones. The product can also be ordered with a wheeled base for convenience, and lockable wheels for stability.

2. Twilight Decorative Mirrored Panel


interest free credit available on purchases over £1000

This beautiful decorative mirror panel is designed to represent silhouetted trees at dusk, and the pattern of ascending branches brings the peaceful quiet of the forest into your garden.


Mirrored panels create the illusion of more space in gardens that may have a limited amount of room, especially when combined with the right blend of greenery or shrubbery. With this product, you can create a really natural feel and a tree-lined vista in your garden.

3. York Composite Railings


interest free credit available with DivideBuy.

Composite fences have been growing in popularity over the last few years, thanks in large part to improved designs and their long-life span. These composite fences from Gates & Fences UK cover both elements, with the option to customise your post, fixings and frame colour. Both products have also appeared on TV, with BBC One and ITV choosing to wrap them into shows focused on outdoor living.


These products are eco-friendly and manufactured in the UK using 60% bamboo (100% FSC) and 40% recycled high density polyethylene.


They also use environmentally gentle bonding agent, additives and tint.

4. Portsmouth Composite Railings


interest free credit available with DivideBuy.

Another product from the gates & fences range of composite railings is the Portsmouth model.


This adds a bit more design and elegance and would be ideal for those with bigger spaces. Three colour options are available (granite, stone and oak). But in keeping with the 2023 eco theme, we’re fans of the oak colour.


Another reason these products are so eco-friendly is that the materials used in them have been saved from landfill.


The manufacturing process gives them new value and turns them into a long-life product compatible with sustainable living. Composite railings are also a very low maintenance type of gate with no risk of warps, splitting or rot – so there’s no need to treat or stain.


5. Veda Universal Corner Sofa Set (Natural)

No outdoor space is complete without being able to sit down and take it all in. AMC furniture has some incredible options that will lift any outdoor space and create a wow factor – whilst fitting in with a natural theme.


This state-of-the-art corner sofa comfortably seats 4 people and comes with a ceramic glass top coffee table and footstool.


The modern rope-weave rattan contrasts beautifully with its all-weather fabric design. This product is a best seller, so get it fast while stocks last!

6. Lotus Lounger Set (Natural)


interest free credit available with DivideBuy.

This set of loungers in a natural colour are ideal if you love nothing more than lying back and watching nature do its thing. 


Made from all-weather rattan, they can be left outside all year round, even in a summer downpour. The cushions are also showerproof and offer 12cm thickness for maximum comfort. 

7. Chakra Bench in Natural


interest free credit available with DivideBuy.

This cute outdoor bench is the perfect addition to any garden and would complement lots of other products from the AMC range. With DivideBuy, you can create your own bundles of furniture and spread the cost to help manage your budget.


It’s made from weatherproof rattan, has a showerproof cushion and is UV Resistant – so what’s not to love?
