Easy Ways to Gussy Up Your Garden
Article by Tyler Morton
It’s that time year again when the weather is warmer, the birds are singing, the trees are blossoming, and the gardens are blooming. If you have a love for gardening, it also the time to jazz up that garden with some new ideas. There are several possible easy ways to gussy up your garden. By adding more love and more work, your garden could be the talk of the neighbourhood. Garden arches can be a beautiful addition while creating new features such as a pond will make your outdoor space feel brand new.
A very simple way to help gussy up the garden is to select some different flowers to plant. Whether you decide to use seeds or bulbs, a different flower or two will certainly make a difference in the colour scheme of your garden.
Another great way to dress up the garden and show off those plants and flowers, is to use edging around the flowers or the pathways. The small, scalloped-shaped cement ones are just right, are simple and add just the right touch to the garden.
One other type of simple way to pretty up your garden is to use outdoor lighting. If your garden has a pond, you can place one of these lights strategically beside the pond to highlight the water. You can also place these lights throughout your garden to show off your bushes and flower beds. With so many difference choices of decorative lights, you can really be creative with these. Another idea for you if you can have pathways, is to label the different flowers like they are in a conservatory or botanical gardens.
One thing to remember when fixing up your garden in the springtime is to not overdo it. Too many statues, lights and edgings can make a garden look too busy. It should look pretty and yet natural. To keep the garden still looking natural, subdued and yet gussied up, you can spread out your plants and bushes and leave more space for a pathway or two. This, of course, depends on how much space you have to devote to your garden.
You may want to add a birdhouse to a small tree in the garden. Not only will this help to add beauty, it will also be nice to see the birds come to feed once spring is in full swing. A garden statue here and there among the plants will also dress up the garden and make it even more interesting. Angels, frogs, and even gargoyles are among some of the most popular garden statues. If your garden has two sections, a garden arch can help split up the space and can look beautiful with some climbing flowers wrapped around it.
Look at sites stocking garden wares for some ideas, then just use your imagination, and you will be so pleased with the results.
