There are many ways you can transform your garden and make it more appealing not just for yourself but also for your guests. Get the garden right, and it acts as if it were another room. The great thing about gardens is,m it doesn’t matter what size it is. With a little creative flair, you can make the smallest gardens scenic places that are a pleasure to be in. Once you get it right, there is nothing better than sitting outside and reading your favorite book on those sunny days.
You can paint pretty much anywhere. Walls, wooden fences, metal bars, and paint can definitely give an outside space a new lease on life. You don’t have to conform to the standard colors. You can be as wild and exotic as you like. If you live in the city and your outside space is literally a patioed area surrounded by walls, why not paint a mural on one of the walls and create the illusion of a long beautiful garden. You can use decals too if a mural is a little too much for you. One thing is for sure, paint can uplift any area, cover up a lot of weathering, and make you feel as if it is band new again.
Gravel can be used in many areas of a garden. It works well as a border between the house and the garden, it also works if you like section-off areas, such as an area for a table and chairs, and a patio doesn’t do it for you. If you have long garden, gravel can create a great walkway. All you need is to clan your gravel and ensure you place a weed membrane underneath to avoid any annoying weeds shooting through.
This is a great one for long, wide gardens that need a little character. Creating divides can section off areas and allow you to have variety. To do this, you need to create borders. You can do this by using things such as standing trellises where you encourage creeping plants to grow up and around. You could use flower bed borders that are raised, perhaps in a stepped fashion. You can even use things such as hedges. Then once you have your sections, you could create a Japanese garden in one, a small pond area, a play area for children, or even a water feature with a bench for quiet reflection. There is a great abundance of choices. You may even find it useful to employ a Landscape Design company, who can create this effect for you.
Vertical gardens are generally great for smaller gardens but can be used in any type of garden. Basically, you use features to attach to the walls and extend the garden upwards. Something like a pallet on its side is a rudimentary example. There are a lot of options available from beautiful wooden designs to more ornate ceramic styles. If you are limited for space, this can really extend it and give you a great garden feel.
