GARDEN OVERHAUL FOR SUMMER WITH WEST ELM // REFURBISHING OUR GARDEN (AD)

Hey guys! This week’s video is our garden overhaul. It’s taken us nine months to turn this garden into our very own little enchanted space. I worked with West Elm on this (ad) and enlisted the help of their free design service again to create the perfect useable space for us! This is a full tour of what we did to transform the garden from planting lots of new shrubs, stencilling the patio and painting the fences and also what furniture we picked out to bring a bit of the Mediterranean into our London home. Hope you don’t mind the background noise of the very chatty parquets lol!

All our plants are from B&Q or Morden garden centre. The foxgloves are from Gardening Express website.

    Hi Jess! This looks AMAZING! 🤩 do you happen to know the name of the plant that is growing along the trellis? We just did our patio and I’ve been looking for a good trellis growing plant for our high top seating area wall. I love this! 🖤🤍🌱

    I want to do my patio just like this too! Has it peeled anywhere at all and would you do anything differently or use different products if you did it again?

  11. Frances Hemmant on December 28, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    It looks amazing!! You & Freddie have done an amazing job, as well as the input from West Elm! Enjoy your morning coffee and sunset cocktails, perfect spot ☀️☕🍹

    Your garden looks great! I agree with the patio, it looks good having a more worn in look x
