Beautiful gardens are extremely alluring to the senses – the smells, colours and textures and the sounds of the wildlife around us are all amazingly attractive to the average person. Of course, creating a truly beautiful garden is pretty hard work, or is it?
It can be, but it by no means has to be a difficult project. Just check out these simple ideas that show anyone who wants to can create a wonderful garden of their own:
Use Artificial Grass
If your lawn is a little lacklustre and you don’t really know how to get it looking beautifully lush and green again, nor do you have the inclination to devote lots of time to its upkeep, forget about the real thing and get some artificial grass from Evergreens instead. It’s pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing with the added bonus that it will always look fabulous no matter how much it’s neglected.
Instead of digging up the garden and planting seeds, invest in pretty plant pots, like the ones at Graham and Green, and containers in your favourite colours and plant your flowers in them instead. By doing this, you won’t have to struggle quite so hard to maintain them (watering is about all you’ll need to do), you can benefit from the bold beauty of flowers in full bloom, and you can move them around whenever you feel like a change.
Group Similar Plants/Flowers Together
If you want your garden to look more put-together you don’t need to spend hours every weekend gardening, nor so you have to employ a professional; simply group your plants and flowers together by colour or foliage type and they will create a much bigger impact than they would if they were scattered willy-nilly all over the place.
Art is Good for the Garden
Do you have artwork on the walls in your home? How about plastic mirrors and sculptures? I bet you do, but what about in the garden? If you don’t make use of artwork in the garden, then you’re really missing a trick because they are a pretty effortless way of…well making your garden prettier.
Invest in Natural Furniture
An easy way to make your garden more beautiful is by doing away with the horrible, cheap plastic furniture and replacing it with more natural materials, such as hardwoods, bamboo and rattan, not only do they look much more expensive and sophisticated, but they blend in more naturally with the surroundings too.
Why plant herbs? Well, not only are they pretty easy to grow, but they’re also quite pretty in their own way too, and even more importantly, they smell amazing. So, if you want a garden that stimulates all the senses, find a little place where you can start a herb patch.
Hang Bird Feeders
Speaking of stimulating all of the senses, there’s nothing like birdsong to make you feel truly relaxed and impressed by the simple beauty of the world, so invest in bird feeders and ensure that they’re always fully stocked.
See, creating a beautiful garden is much easier than you think!
