8 Garden enhancements
Fences provide not only security and privacy but can enhance your outdoor living space. There are many to choose from, from chain-linked to wooden, etc.., that are of different styles. Each type has its advantages.
What I love however are wooden fences that are stylish with a nice coat of paint. White Picket fences can also enhance a flower garden design.
Garden walkways that separate flower gardens and lawns or hardscapes and flower gardens are added features that will bring that wow. The advantage of a garden walkway besides its beautification by its line of separation is protecting your lawn and flower garden from being stepped on by providing a direct path from your home to the garden area and other parts of your yard.
Light up your world with the use of Garden lights, garden lights can really flavor your outdoor experience as dark falls. These lights at night time are beautiful as you extend the evening on the great outdoors with family and friends or that special someone in a romantic setting as you gaze at the stars.
Installing a patio with garden furniture is a great way to host parties and other social events or family gatherings. Why limit both the experience of you and your guest when you can entertain them on the great outdoors connecting with and enjoy nature in a delightful setting.
Gazebos have made a name for themselves because this garden feature can be installed just about anywhere in the landscape. You can have your gazebo custom made as large as you want it with a mini kitchen and a sitting area in which host and entertainment center. A setting like this will truly enhance your outdoor living experience.
Invite nature into your living space by installing a garden pond, garden ponds are a sure way to take your outdoor living experience up a notch. Garden ponds can provide hours of excitement and a home for many wildlife.
This is an amazing experience watching wildlife in their natural habitat from your backyard garden. Children will find a pond especially exciting, these ponds can be of any size depending on your budget. Many of these ponds which are mini ponds can be purchased that come with instructions or you can hire a professional pond contractor to construct one. Shop around however for a price that fits your budget.
Adding pieces of garden furniture throughout your garden area will provide you with an outdoor experience where you can kick back and enjoy different areas of your garden. Furniture such as chairs or tables which are made for outdoors or a wagon with flowers like in the photo above will liven up your living space.
The use of terraces has become so popular, one of the properties of the five-star resort in which I worked many years ago had a beautiful courtyard terrace garden with potted and hanging plants that graced a beautiful garden in a private setting that was truly a garden paradise.
It is possible to have this type of setting as a part of your home garden, with garden furniture and features bringing your outdoor living space to life. Your terrace garden, however, can be constructed in stages a budget is so important and will help to complete this project.
Living walls are garden plants that are grown and groomed as a hedge creating a formal appearance that is clean and polished. A living or live wall gives the best of both worlds, a hedge that functions as a wall for privacy and security purposes along with adding beauty will complement your garden design.
Decks are the in thing these days and can be of any size or style with a finished board look that is sure to wow your guest. Decks will provide an outdoor living space to host parties and other events or just sitting down with a book in a relaxed environment.
Potted plants can also be installed on your deck further giving that color pop creating an even flow that’s so inviting with its beauty and charm.
