Plant cleverly and with flair, using quick-growing climbers and vivid pots of colour, and make the most of your garden centre while your flower beds become established. For dramatic yet speedy garden makeovers, there are ideas and projects you can do in a matter of hours: break up a boring lawn; introduce a water feature or a pretty pond within the space of a weekend; place obelisks and ornaments in dead corners; and cover up blank walls and fences.
