Are you attached to your garden at the moment? If you’re like most people you fell out of love with it a long time ago, but it’s not too late to get the spark back. If you want to feel like your garden is magical again there are tons of things you can do, but we’re going to focus in on a few important ones you should concentrate on first.
Work Around A Focal Point
How many homes have a living room with every seat pointed towards the television? It’s the default way to design your living room, and the reason it works well is because the TV acts as a focal point. Your garden will look just as good if you follow the same rules, but electronics don’t do well outside so you’ll have to get creative. Fire pits have become extremely popular at the moment and they’ll let you sit outside at night.
Always Add A Dash Of Color
Did you know Darwinism affects the flowers in your garden too? Survival of the fittest meant the colorful plants would be the ones bees pollinated, so over the course of millions of years they got brighter and brighter. They’ve worked hard to become a thing of beauty in your garden today, which means you should always have a dash of color on show. There are species out there for every month of the year.
Choosing The Right Shed
One of the first things you need to do is throw your old shed out, because it likely takes up a fair chunk of space. That would be fine if it was attractive, but it’s going to be old and falling apart. You need to choose the best shed for your garden if you don’t want to see an eyesore every time you look out the window. If you can try to pick one with a unique design it always helps add a touch of class.
Back In The Good Old Days
At one point in time you used to think your garden was stunning, but you’ve neglected it for so long. Sometimes to increase the beauty of a garden it involves peeling back the layers like you’re on an archeological dig. Hire a pressure washer to attack your dirty path and patio slabs, plus pick all the weeds out from in between them. Spend a day giving your fence a fresh coat of paint. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the results.
Grow Citrus Trees On The Porch
If you’re going to sit outside the chairs will probably be on the porch, so you need something gorgeous sitting beside you. There are a lot of options available, but nothing says tropical like a couple of dwarf citrus trees in stunning pots. Even if the weather doesn’t resemble a tropical sky, your lovely oranges and lemons will cheer you up every time you look at them. Luckily, they’re also easy to grow.
Don’t Wait Around For Another Year
When your garden looks great you’re much more likely to spend time outside. You will stop feeling stressed when you look out the window too. It’s unfortunate how many people ignore their garden, but just because it’s normal you don’t have to be one of them. Start working on the ideas we’ve talked about today whenever possible, and you should also let them open your imagination up to new things.
