Editor’s Picks: Must-Haves for a Garden Revamp

Spring is officially in full swing. Instead of focusing your energy on drab spring cleaning indoors, enjoy the newfound sunshine with a facelift to your garden. No matter the space—whether a tiny rooftop garden in New York City or rolling hills in the Napa Valley—this is a must-have list for any modern gardener to get excited for the season ahead.

Globe LED Outdoor Indoor Lamp

Globe LED Indoor Outdoor Lamp from Smart & Green

This best-seller from Smart & Green is the epitome of modern design, perfect for creating ambiance when relaxing in any outdoor space. The additional Pebble Remote stays in-line with the sleek design and adds a level of convenience I love. With its posh aesthetic, the ability to rotate between 6 (yes!) color hues and light intensities, and its mobility, this lamp is a must-have for your garden.

Aroa Wall Light

Aroa Wall Light from B.Lux

Who says you need a backyard to have a garden? Not B.Lux! This wall lamp turned planter allows even apartment dwellers to flex their green thumb. Its distinctive design allows you to illuminate the top, bottom or none of the fixture, all while growing your favorite flowers.

A Striking Planter

While they come in all shapes, sizes and colors, we love an accent planter that brings a modern edge to traditional patio gardens. Vondom’s Stone Planters are made from 100% recyclable polyethylene, making them lightweight, impact- and weather-resistant. The organic posture fits right in outdoors with a sculptural, artistic appeal.


Gnomes by Philippe Starck, from Kartell

Atilla, Napolean, and St. Esprit are the quirky touch your garden is looking for this spring. Kartell‘s unique collection, also available in black and gold, brings together functionality and humor. These three personalities can assist you as a side table for your garden tools or a stool for a quick bask in the sun.  With undeniable visual appeal, these Gnomes will be the focal point of any garden party.

Planta Artificial Stones Plant Signs

Planta Artificial Stone Signs from Blomus

Suitable for your favorite herbivore, this set of plant signs by Blomus is an excellent choice to name your foliage with style. Available in sets of 2 or 4, the signs also come with reusable chalk for eternal customization. Start them out with your spring veggies and rotate them throughout the rest of the year.

Bird Feeder

Bird Feeder from Eva Solo

An excellent choice in design and materials, this sleek bird feeder by Eva Solo adds a magical feel to any garden. The hand blown crystal clear glass gives the illusion the feeder is floating in air and allows a perfect view for watching our feathered friends. This piece truly is a testament to the statement “less is more.”

Limbo Watering Can

Limbo Watering Can from Blomus

A must-have for any gardener: the watering can. The clean lines and stainless steel accent of this can by Blomus keeps your attention. Meanwhile, its lengthy spout is perfect for getting water to those hard-to-reach areas.

Green Coffee Table, Rectangular

Green Coffee Table, Rectangular by Lyon Beton

This is a great outdoor table for any modern garden. Composed out of concrete, this table by Lyon Beton is highly durable in even the harshest weather conditions. The cherry on top? The center tray can be used as a planter, a drink cooler for entertaining, or even removed to become an extra design element elsewhere.

GAZE Relaxation Room

GAZE Relaxation Room from Jane Hamley Wells

At the top of my wish list is this absolutely stunning open living space by Jane Hamley Wells. Sun gaze under the canopy and then quickly pop the floor up into a dining table for entertainment. The multi-functional gazebo will leave your guests never wanting to leave.

Time to shed your winter coats and catch some vitamin D. With items from all shapes, size, versatility, and price range you are sure to find just what you need to bring your garden back to life this spring.
