Here are three ideas that entered my mind during the process of cleaning the garden space:
- Tidy Up. Believe it or not, a garden that is simply free of debris and tidy can transform the way it looks. It is an efficient way to increase the appeal of your yard, but getting the lawn mowed and trimming down the shrubbery prove that the luxury is in the smallest details. A good tidy clean up can truly beautify the space, declutter the yard and if you add a couple of cute ornaments while you’re there, space will look and feel as new all over again.
2. Décor. Pooling weeds were hard work and we were exhausted. Trying to seek solace from the burning sun heat, son and I was looking for an outer bank’s outdoor furniture we could sit down on. It is not in the garden, but in the lanai where we had to rest, hydrating and taking a breather. At least, we had chairs and table available. Thus, the patio furniture does come in quite handy, especially when you try to enjoy nature, weather and outside environment.
3. Lighting. This idea is quite new to me and intriguing. Not only it adds the decorative touch to the garden, but it also serves as a guiding light. Try out a solar chandelier and hang it from the tree in the back. LED lighting that borders your landscaping can make your garden look so lit up and festive. Many times I enter the garden at night with the headlight on my head to see what bugs are eating the crops and to investigate or spray organic oils in the evening, away from the sunlight. Having an available environmentally friendly garden chandelier that lights up the way would make a difference, I think.
Hope this post will help you find some fun decorative aspects for your own garden.
Have a very green day everyone.
