How To Create Your Dream Garden

by Kathy Hereford, August 21, 2019

When it comes to having our dream house, a garden can play a huge role; after all, it adds to the overall look and feel to the exterior of your house. However, creating your dream garden can be a huge task in itself; because of that many people don’t know where to start. While everyone has their own ideas and designs, there are thousands of different things you can do to make your garden stand out. That being said, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might think; with a little inspiration and a few tips and tricks, you can create your dream garden quickly.

Review & Plan

Before you can create your dream garden, you have to know what you’re working with first; after all, you can make loads of plans, but if they won’t fit within your garden then it’s a wasted effort. Because of that, seeing your garden when it’s as bare as possible can help you plan out what you can do with it. After you know the physical limitations (as well as any budgetary ones) then you’ll be able to plan out what you want to do with the space.

Get Rid Of Any Eyesores

Not every garden is made the same, and as such there may be some eyesores around your garden. This can be the likes of an old shed, or even a terrible view on one side of the garden. In your planning stages, you may be able to come up with ways to make these look nicer. For example, a shed can be improved upon to look like a garden pavilion, while you can plant tall trees or hedges to take attention away from a bad view. You could also frame your garden in such a way that you shouldn’t see any eyesores too often. Fences can always be improved upon, and even the likes of a new paint job can go a long way to improving your gardens looks.

Consider Adding Curves

If you’re like the vast majority of us, then there’s a significant chance that your garden is either square or rectangular. Because of that, you might want to consider adding some curves around your garden; a circular area to sit and a curving path can go a long way to improving the overall shape of your garden. It could also help to make your garden feel bigger and help to maximize the amount of usable space.

Put In An Entertainment Space

If your garden is going to look amazing, then you’re not going to want to enjoy it just from the windows. With that in mind, you might want to consider installing some kind of space in your garden for entertaining. This can be as big or as small as needed, but you could always put a table and chairs somewhere in your garden for dinners in the summer or parties. There’s also the likes of patio furniture so that you can relax in the garden in the evening. During the summer months, this can be a great place to read a book or relax for a few hours. Because of that, you’ll end up being able to enjoy your garden a lot more than you would otherwise.

Automate Your Gardening

Everyone wants their garden to look amazing, but nobody wants to put in a lot of time every week into maintaining it. However, there have been a variety of products released that could let you automate much of your gardening. While there may not be much in the way of lawn weed control, there are a few other things that they can help with. You can set up sprinklers to water your lawn at certain times at certain days etc. You could also hire someone to take care of mowing the lawn and even your lawn weed control if needed.

There are a variety of other things that you can do to spice up your garden; this can include the likes of a small vegetable garden or even a water feature. That being said, your dream garden is something that’s driven by your imagination. With that in mind, what’s stopping you from going wild when it comes to designing the garden of your dreams.
