Although your house might be ruled by your children, your garden belongs to you. After a hard day’s work, there’s a lot of pleasure to be had from sitting outside in your own personal paradise and soaking up the atmosphere. But if your garden looks a little bit like a disused field, it’s not going to bring you much enjoyment, so here’s a compact guide to help you turn your garden around.
Create a Water Feature
There are so many benefits to adding a water feature to your garden. For a start, it’s bound to attract local wildlife which will help you relax after a stressful day.
Enhance your feature with attractive stones, luscious green flowers and brightly coloured fish; you might even consider some night lights so you can enjoy the feature 24 hours a day. Here’s a great Pinterest board to get your creative juices flowing.
Even better, the sound of water is known to be extremely soothing, and that combined with the element of movement a water feature brings to a garden will contribute towards bringing paradise to your garden.
A Plant Paradise
The right kind of plants will help to make your garden look great, create privacy, and establish a theme for the space. A really great tip is to plant plants that don’t only look great but smell great too. As with the pond idea, a really good garden is multisensory.
Therefore, you should plant sweet smelling lavender and rosemary and lemon scented thyme to really give your sense of smell a treat. The upside of those plants is that they’re all herbs, so they have a practical use, too. On top of that, they all flower and are extremely hardy, so they’re very easy to maintain which is good when you’ve had a busy day at work.
Clear Away the Clutter
Finally, you can achieve a peaceful garden by ensuring that any items that are cluttering your field of vision are hidden away in a storage chest like the ones from Shackletons. This is an easy way of maintaining your garden space as a relaxation zone, because as soon as you see something out of place you’re likely to want to go and find a home for it.
So there you have it, a compact guide to help you turn your lacklustre garden into a perfect paradise. Now when you’re looking to have a little relaxation time away from the buzz of family life, you can retreat to your garden.
