We all spend so much time creating the best homes, but many of us sort of neglect our gardens. Gardens are significant for any home that is seeking an influx of positive energy and healthy vibes. A Garden that is unkempt and a mess sticks out like a sore thumb and is quite a disappointment. Allowing the weeds to grow and the grass to grow scarce is a sign of neglect, and you would definitely not want the garden to create a wrong image of yourself!
The garden is your sanctuary and most probably the first thing about your home that meets the eye of anyone entering through your gates! So why should you not be looking to pour in your heart and soul to make it an escape from reality kind of space! Many people even prefer to entertain their guests in their beautiful gardens!
Many businesses are focused on creating homes from just the brick and mortar structure that stands. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you turn your lawn/garden/backyard into the envy of others! Melbourne gardening can be absolute fun if you plan your garden using any of the ideas below:
House the hose:Make a house for your tube! Sounds odd? Well, you would want to tangle in the hose pipe's snaking length over your backyard would you? So why not give it a home. You can have a small cabinet made where you can fold and store your hose. Making a small office for your gardening types of equipment and then using flower pots to cover the top is a very environmental friendly idea that will create a very finished look in your garden. Just to give it a more "garden-y" look you can add cavity of the top and place a small flower pot in it!
Plant borders:Mark boundaries and create borders! No! We are not asking to set up military posts next! We are merely suggesting that if you cut your lawn in a particular shape, like a rectangle, square or a circle depending on how much Green Patch you want and then mark a boundary around it using small bricks. It would create a neat look and a comfy place all at once.
Edge the flower beds that you have maintained around your green patch. This creates a very professional look, and it will not be long when people start asking about the architect who did your landscaping!
Beautify with retainers and cobbled pathways:Adding on to fasteners on your beds can help you create a very organised look. The cobbled paths give a very spiritual feeling to the gardens and make it look more like a fairy tale. You can easily hire contractors, that can install the cobbled pathways as you may want them. If your garden space is small then having smaller stones placed as pathways will do the trick. You can have your plants in groups, and either has a green patch snaking in between them or cobbled path. Either way, you will have a fancy place ready in no time!
Have a sanctuary:Create a small shed kind of area or a patio, with comfortable seating arrangements. It would be like a getaway in the countryside! The size of the place can be entirely dependent on the kind of garden that you prefer. If the garden is significant, then you can have a big gazebo or a tree house to add a perfect getaway place. You can host tea parties and even have a family barbecue.
Some people also prefer the idea of a greenhouse area within their garden. But this entirely depends on the fact if you actually are into gardening or not.
Having a nice comfortable place to sit and read or drink coffee can amp up your mood and ensure that you always have a safe haven.
Accentuate with lights:Lights can help create an ethereal feel and effect. Using them creatively can add a delightful charm to an otherwise dull and drab place. Empty jam jars and peanut butter jars can be used to light the garden and create a beautiful aura. Adding fairy lights twirling around in the plants, small flower pot shaped lamps hanging in your patio is just what you need to make your own "Fairy Meadow"!
These are a few ideas that can add an exciting twist and charm to the overall garden look. Many landscapers and companies are providing the services. They usually have their own catalogues and designers who can guide as to how you should be decorating the garden. But having an idea of your own can help enhance the overall plan and make your yard the beautiful space you are dreaming of creating!
