Okay, so an in-ground swimming pool is a little out of your budget and you're not quite ready to sacrifice your yard's aesthetics for a plastic wading pool. A pond complete with colourful fish is a great visual feature in any garden. Hide any plastic piping or filters by surrounding the pond with lush plants, flowers and garden decorations.

6. Introduce a bird bath

7. Outdoor table tennis
