Want to add some eye-catching splashes to your garden this year to spruce it up for the season? Get ready to show it off as soon as COVID restrictions lift with these simple and fun additions for your garden.
There’s something timeless and elegant about garden statues which is why they’ve been used in gardens for centuries. You can find lots of different designs and price points to suit your yard size and budget. Place it in the center of your lawn or tuck it in amongst your vegetation for a subtle approach.
Stone pathways make great additions to any gardenscapes. Aside from looking decorative, they’re also functional, giving you and your guests a clear path and invitation to stroll through the garden, smell the flowers, and soak in those secret garden vibes.
Have you been eager to try your hand at growing a few of your own veggies? If so, start by creating raised garden beds. These basic beds can be a practical and beautiful part of your landscape too.
What’s better than lounging outside on a hot summer day? Doing it in a hammock. All you need is two sturdy trees located close enough to tie one on. Then grab your favourite book and swing away in blissful comfort as you enjoy your downtime.
Container gardens are fun additions to your garden because you can choose a wide range of creative items to use as containers. Choose an old wheelbarrow, colourful pots, old painted tires, or even an old bicycle with a good front basket to fit in some flowers.
Create a Green Wall
Alternatively, make a green wall. These vertical structures are convenient for smaller spaces when you want to add some vibrant colour. Wall planters can be installed with bottom drainage and are typically used for growing annuals, herbs or succulents.
If your yard is looking a bit too sparse, consider adding a pergola to it. This can create a focal point in your yard, and it can offer you just enough protection from the sun to enjoy the outdoors without overheating on those scorching hot days.
Stretch out those summer and fall evenings with an outdoor fireplace. You can choose between electric, small portable ones or a larger stone fireplace to enjoy when you have guests over. Always make sure you abide by local bylaws, restrictions, and safety protocols when adding a fireplace to the backyard.
