Transform your garden with Dulux Weathershield. Whether you have a patch of patio or a tiny lawn, turn your urban garden into a calming sanctuary. Read more.


Our gardens have proven themselves more precious than ever over the past 12 months. They surely deserve a little TLC, and what we deserve, is our very own calming oasis to retreat to when we want to get out of the house - right? Well, we’re here to help you transform your garden into exactly that.

Whether you have a patch of patio, dreamy decking, or a small but perfectly formed piece of lawn, there’s no reason not to turn your urban garden into a calming sanctuary. There are great garden wall ideas that are easy to do, but will make a big difference. By choosing the right garden wall paint and colour for the walls, and adding some simple designs to create a garden feature wall, accessories or plants, you can turn your outdoors into a relaxing spot to unwind. 

3 easy ways to turn your garden into a relaxing retreat 

1. From weathered wall to wonder wall

Painting garden brick walls is a quick way to brighten up your outside space, and it can be a simple job as long as you use the right tools and products.

To get started, you need to clean your walls and treat any areas of mould. We’d recommend using Weathershield Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash.

When it comes to choosing your garden wall paint, you need one that protects your wall against heavy rain, bright sun, algae, dirt and mould growth within the paint film, so we’d recommend Dulux Weathershield All Weather Protection Smooth Masonry Paint. It’s formulated with our unique Stay Clean technology to protect against all weather conditions for up to 15 years giving you the perfect long-lasting colour and finish. Plus, it’s shower-resistant in only 30 minutes – perfect for the great British weather!

Dulux Weathershield All Weather Protection also comes in a textured finish. What’s more, both products are backed by the Weathershield Promise – if your walls peel, flake or there is mould growth within the paint film whilst you live in your home, we will give you your money back.

“Grey is truly versatile and complements a really broad range of tones and spaces. Using Concrete Grey can give your garden a sleek look. Plus, if your garden has paving, choosing a grey for your walls echoes the colour of the paving, making your garden feel more spacious. To soften the finished look, just add some green accessories.” - Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director

2. Create an outdoor feature wall

Looking for garden wall ideas? Feature walls aren’t limited to interior design. Oh no, they work just as well outdoors too. For a simple, subtle feature design, start with a circle.

All you need to do is cut a piece of string half the width of your desired circle. Pin it to the wall where you want the centre of your circle to be and attach a pencil to the other end.

Hold the string taught and draw a circle. Then, fill in with a contrasting colour. If you’ve opted for a grey garden wall paint, such as Concrete Grey, then Jasmine White is a great choice for the circle.

3. A great way to add green

You don’t need a lawn or flowerbeds to add a touch of nature to your outdoor space. An array of plants in pots and containers can instantly add interest and life to your urban space. Just make sure you position plants in the right spot according to whether they like shade or sunshine to thrive. A great garden wall idea would be to plant some climbers which will grow up your painted masonry to create a living wall.
