Having a garden is not for everyone, but it doesn’t mean that you must stop putting effort into your gardening skills. Instead, if you think you’re slowly losing interest in this hobby, maybe a bit of renovation could mend the problem?
We believe that Outdoor Art Pros‘ website provides more than enough decoration choices for you, but we can’t argue if you’ll also like having a few tricks up your sleeves.
So read along, and let us help you unlock your creative side.
Install a meditation space
A meditation garden may not be familiar to you, but don’t worry, we got you.
This term refers to turning an available space for meditation, wherein its decorations typically adhere to the Buddhism belief to achieve tranquility.
In general, this type of garden includes having water features to mask unwanted noises, statues of Buddha, and plants. Of course, you’re free to add a personal twist to this design by adding other things that help you relieve stress.
Now, suppose you don’t mind having the traditional style. In that case, we suggest finding a spot that allows you to view a bed of flowers and ensure that you’ll be able to have your privacy by finding an isolated area or is easy to hide behind movable screens, bamboo fencing, or curtains.
Buy complimenting flowers
If you want a lovely garden, then we highly recommend purchasing various sets of flowers, so you could employ a color theme using a combination of two or more colors.
For example, suppose you’re aiming to decorate your space with an orange and yellow theme. In that case, it’ll be a good idea to stock up on orange marigolds, yellow capsicums, orange chard, calendula, and our personal favorite—nasturtiums.
Yet, if you’re someone who looks for a bit of a challenge, why don’t you try the blue, grey, and white theme?
You don’t have to stick to flowers; feel free to incorporate a handful of plants into your design to keep the motif going. Here’s a tip: these three colors go with everything, so you could use green/blue leeks, cauliflower, cabbages, culinary sage, sages with blue flowers, and alyssum to make it look balanced!
Look for garden arts
If you’d take the initiative to add garden arts, such as ornaments, treasure finds, collections, or DIY decor, it could highlight certain angles of your garden.
What’s more, is that your choice of decorative items dramatically reflects your personality while adding character to your once lifeless garden.
Some examples of garden arts you could buy are gnomes, hanging planters, butterfly stakes, or iconic bird ornaments. Just take a step back and be critical of the adjustments that should be made.
For instance, if you want to hide a bare wall, then it’ll be wise if you try to hang a bamboo blind to serve as a backdrop for your plants. Or if you’re renting yet can’t paint the walls before your renters arrive, all you have to do is add the staple fabric to its lightweight timber frame in a contrasting hue before moving some furniture and pots in front.
It’s at your discretion if you’d like to allow a couple of bucks in improving your garden, yet don’t forget that your chosen designs may not be compatible with others.
Don’t let that stop you, though, and stay happy gardening!
