When the sun is shining, it’s impossible not to want to spend time in your garden. Even if it’s rainy, and you’ve got some covered space, it can be a pleasure to listen to the raindrops falling. Of course, a garden that’s not looking its best is not a place where anyone would want to spend a great deal of time. As such, it’s a good idea to invest some time and effort to make it look just right so that it will be a pleasure to sip your lemonade in it. A great starting point to a wonderful outdoor space is installing false grass. The great thing is that there are so many options out there as far design ideas go, that you can make your garden as unique as your personality.
There’s no need for you to bring in countless flowers in your garden to make it look good. Of course, if that’s your jam, you can go for it. However, if you’re looking for a way to turn into an open green space, that’s still tailored to your own tastes, the great news is that you’ve got plenty of options. First off, the innate benefit of artificial grass is that you’re not going to deal with patchy areas, or with mud all over the place, as these could easily ruin the look of your open green space. You can use slabs for paving and edging the flower beds that you do have in there. In addition, you can purchase different types of garden furniture to create a comfy corner where you can rest.
Color it Up
If when you think of a garden, you have an image of an ever-colorful oasis filled with flowers, you can use raised flower beds to break up the areas of open space. Ensure that you’re leaving no less than a meter of depth when you’re using flower beds for bordering areas.
Something else you can do is add flower pots over places that are paved. The great benefit of using pots is that you can move them around as you please, which gives you more freedom if you’re someone who doesn’t necessarily like things to be kept the same way for a long time. You can also color coordinate the pots to the color of the slabs.
For instance, if you’ve got slabs that are sandy-colored, you can pick delicate blues and soft pinks for your pots. If you’ve got grey paving, black and white-colored pots work beautifully, particularly if you’re going to plant flowers that come in bold colors. Of course, you can also coordinate the flowers you plant with the season, planting whites and pinks during the spring and summer seasons, and bright yellows and bold reds for the autumn.
Fire and Water
If you add a powerful feature to the garden, you can transform it on the spot. Something as simple as a small fire pit that you can use for your summer gatherings would be a magnificent addition. Not only it will make it look wonderful, but it will also give you a great activity to participate in during those summer months.
Alternatively, you can also install a garden pond, which will make your garden look like a small oasis of tranquility. Another idea for those who like water is installing a small fountain or even a freestanding waterfall.
Another thing you can do to your garden is using it for adding more space that can either be used as storage or even as a guest room. You can accessorize these structures with garden lights to give it a fairytale feel.
Playing with Heights
Playing with different heights in your garden is another great way of making your space look unique and beautiful. You can add a deck to introduce an air of sophistication. It’s also the perfect way of introducing a great new space for outdoor dining with your family or with your guests on those beautiful summer evenings.
Another great thing to do with your garden is, well, grow fruits and vegetables. It offers a wonderful way for you to spend your time. Plus, you’ll get to eat some delicious fruits and veggies.
You can make your garden as unique as your personality, either transforming it into a flower party or into an oasis, filled with peace and quiet.
