William Mitchell, from Sutton Manor Nursery, said: “We feel that your garden should bring you a sense of peace and quiet, and we urge everyone with an outdoor space to make use of it as the benefits of having somewhere to rest genuinely are unlimited. When renting a house, we understand the reluctance to change your environment, but we are confident that you will not be disappointed and that you will enjoy your outdoor space as much as the inside.”
One way in which Britons can revamp their outdoor space is to invest in beautiful plant pots.
The experts said: “By placing your plants in pots, it allows you to transport your plants anywhere you go and brighten up the space beautifully.
“As well as this, you will be able to have a large variety of plants and swap them out whenever the plants are too big or you want to change things up.”
Adding a variety of different plant pots can also add texture into the garden.
Many people like to add furniture into their outside space, including a table and chairs.
Sutton Manor Nursery recommended buying flexible furniture if you are renting, so that it is easy to transport.
They said: “If you don’t have enough room for a table and chairs, try a drinks cart or mobile side table, which will provide you with some aesthetic and practical space while also serving as a terrific design piece to tie your outdoor space together.”
Adding fairy lights to your outside space can also help make it feel more cosy and homely.
The experts recommend wrapping them around a fence, wall or weaving them into the landscape.
They added: “Painting a fence or a wall is a surefire method to bring a location back to its former glory. A painted fence in a bold statement colour like black, if permitted by your landlord, would allow you to hide any faults or imperfections.
“Painting a wall, on the other hand, can instantly brighten up a room and breathe fresh life into it.”
Walls can also be used for hanging decorations such as hanging plants or mirrors.
For those wanting to buy plants, Sutton Manor Nursery experts said: “Before purchasing plants for your outside space, there are a few things to keep in mind.
“Is your garden or outdoor space exposed to a lot of sunlight? Will they drain well if you put them into a pot? If so, how much care do they require?
“Slow-growing, long-lived plants, such as succulents, peonies and hostas, are ideal for renters since they are very tolerant to a variety of environments and may thrive in small containers.”
Tenants could even go some step further and create a mobile vegetable garden.
This way it can be easily transported.
