Pretty gardens appeal to the human senses. The colours and wide range of styles, fragrances, and sounds are an incredible experience, especially when it’s your own garden. Turning your garden into your own perfect little haven is every gardener’s dream, and you might be wondering how you can put a personal spin on it. Simple concepts can make a massive difference to the enjoyment of your garden space so here are some beautiful features you should consider adding to your garden.
Pergolas are a wonderful way of adding some structure to your garden and, once they’re built, they are super low maintenance! You can allow plants or vines to grow up and along the woodwork for a really rustic feel. Or, you can plant hedges and flowers for a much tidier and colourful scene. If you can get your hands on some Western Red Cedar, and you’re particularly handy at DIY, then why not have a go at making it yourself?
A feature that’s quite unusual, yet a classy touch to any garden made for entertaining is an outdoor kitchen. During these beautiful summer months, there’s no doubt you’re planning on entertaining your family and friends. And what better way to do it than in your very own outdoor kitchen!? Imagine not having to leave the party of people in your garden to check on the food and instead, you can entertain and feed everyone delicious food and drinks. Perhaps you could grow some herbs such as mint, chives and rosemary to add to your food and drinks? The perfect addition to anyone who loves their garden and cooking.
Sculptures are like artwork for your garden and can be an incredible talking point in any garden. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg either, as sculptures can be anything from a wooden carving of a face to a cherub riding a horse. Or, sculptures can simply be a piece of artwork! If you’re feeling creative, why not have a go at making your own garden sculpture? It can be anything you like – from a simple arrangement of rocks and pebbles to a hand carved piece. The best part? If it’s homemade you know it’s completely unique!
Another feature that will grab the eye of admirers of your garden is a water feature. There’s something so relaxing about watching water flowing and listening to the gentle, babbling water as you sit and soak up the warm sun. Another bonus is that water features are very low maintenance, perhaps requiring a filter change every few months! Why not add some pizz-azz and find a solar panel water feature that you could also use as a mini pond?
The great part about having a garden is that it’s an extension of your home’s style and that no matter what you decide, your garden is your perfect safe haven. Enjoy the summer heat whilst it’s here!
