Gardens should be full of interest, with loads of different aspects ready to enchant all who enter them. But the problem is, many gardens are simply drab affairs, with a few bushes and a poorly maintained lawn.
There are some really easy ways to spice up your garden though, and add some new dimensions that all of your visitors will love. But what exactly are they? Well, they are explained in more detail below…
Decorative Garden Stakes
Decorative garden stakes are a great way to give your garden a unique feel, as they pop up in unexpected places, featuring an array of different designs. Kids will love garden stakes with cartoon-like characters on them, while adults will think that more decorative stakes add something to any flowerbed. Some garden stakes are even glow in the dark, making your garden a beautiful place even during the night-time hours.
When you think of garden ornaments, you probably think of tacky garden gnomes, sitting by a pond with their fishing rods. But the fact is that there are loads of really nice ornaments now available to buy, and they can be bought with a variety of different budgets. Whether you have a huge stone ornament in the centre of your lawn, or a small one hidden in the flowers, is completely up to you though…
A Lick of Paint
Even if you have the nicest selection of plants and the most perfectly manicured lawn, your garden isn’t going to look great if you have old, dilapidated fences around it. A simple lick of paint can sort these though, turning them from an eyesore into a focal point of the garden. The same is completely true when it comes to the old shed sitting at the bottom of your garden.
There are 24 hours in a day, but most people only enjoy their garden during the daytime hours. With some strategically placed lights though, you’ll be able to enjoy your garden whenever you want to. You can even combine lights with glow in the dark decorative stakes to create a garden that looks amazing during the night.
Have you got a structure in your garden that you really don’t like? If so, you can easily erect a trellis around it, before then allowing climbing plants to completely cover the eyesore. Many people choose climbing roses for this job, but you could also choose other plants such as honeysuckle or clematis.
So, there you have it: five ways to add a new dimension to your garden. Even implementing one of them will make your garden look better than it has ever done before!
