With spring right around the corner, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about all the fabulous ways in which you’ll be improving your garden for the upcoming season.
Whether you want to improve your garden for hosting purposes, relaxation, or if you simply love the look of a well-groomed landscape, read on for the best garden improvement ideas for 2015.
Let There Be Light Nothing beats outdoor summer nights that are illuminated by stars and twinkling lights.
Adding small strings of lights to your garden patio can create a setting that’s romantic, welcoming, and classic. You can even create your unique lights by putting candles in a jar or old bottles.
Additionally, adding pathway or garden lights will not only contribute to the overall ambiance of your garden but serve a utilitarian purpose as well.
This is an inexpensive and easy change that you, and all visitors to your garden, will appreciate. Pathways to Paradise Why not improve your garden this year by installing stone pathways?
The pathways are a perfect way to walk through your garden or lead guests from the patio to a unique feature you have in your yard.
Pathways aren’t only practical; they also improve the look of your garden, too.
Make sure that if you decide to install stone pathways this year, you use a professional installation company. You want the job to look skilled, not like a sloppy do-it-yourself job. Outdoor Art Garden art, such as birdbaths, statues, trellises, or sculptures can greatly add to the feeling of your yard.
When properly placed, outdoor art is more elegant than pretentious, and can make your garden seem more inviting.
Transform your yard from a place where flowers and vegetables are grown to a place where you and other can relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors with art pieces that promote serenity and peace. Add Color garden isn’t complete without bright colors.
Paint a garden fence red, or sprinkle wildflower seeds around your yard or at the base of one of your new outdoor garden art pieces.
Yellows, reds, and pinks are perfect for gardens, and wildflowers require little to no care; they’ll grow all on their own. You should also consider growing colorful fruits and vegetables.
Not only will they add to the beauty of your garden, but they’ll also provide you with healthy, organic, and delicious meal options that will save you money and keep you healthy.
Install a Water Feature If you can afford it, installing a water feature is the ultimate garden transformation. Water features can turn a space from drab to fabulous, and can greatly increase the overall feeling of your garden.
A water feature can either be a rock-wall waterfall, a pond, a fountain, or even an outdoor, in-ground pool.
If you opt for a pond, why not get a couple of fish or even turtles that can call the water home? Improving your garden can make your yard feel more welcoming, beautiful, and impressive.
Not only will improving your garden increase its aesthetic value, but an awesome garden will increase the value of your home, too. Why to hesitate—start planning your garden improvements today.
