Warmer temperatures and blue skies hopefully means that you will spending a lot more time in the garden and outdoors. Fresh air is so good for you, as long as the weather is so perfect you should take advantage of the outdoors as much as you can. And what better way to enjoy being outside than in your own garden? If you have not taken the time to beautify your garden yet, then here are a few ideas of things that you can get done quite quickly and still be able to relax the season away under your beautifully designed pergolas or in the hammock under the deck. Just imagine yourself in these places and you’ll be inspired to get started.
- Beautifully Designed Pergolas
A pergola is a flat archway that is placed in your garden that who’s framework is covered with climbing or trailing plants. It’s almost like a four poster bed for your garden. It’s a great entrance or exit to a garden or can even make a sensational centerpiece when placed over a fountain or fancy patio furniture. Beautifully designed pergolas can be made so their roofs are slats, allowing sunshine to get through or can be designed as a shade structure. Either way the whole idea of them is very relaxing and soothing to be near. You can have pergolas professionally built or you can attempt one yourself although it will probably be more beneficial to let the experts do the work.
- Exciting Colorful Accents
If you want to change up your garden but are on a budget, an easy way to do it is to switch out your outdoor furniture covers. Bright, gorgeous colors are totally in style right now so adding in some throw pillows or even a rug or a table cloth to complement your covers will add a splash of fun to your garden. This idea works well whether you have a lot of colorful flowers or mostly greenery. Colorful flowers with colorful furniture makes for a happy and exciting garden while a mostly green garden with colorful accents on the furniture makes for a classy and elegant look, almost vicotorian. Whichever you go for, will be a welcome change.
- Engaging Custom Sheds
Having a shed that is built to your specifications and needs is such a great need. No one can have too much storage and what better way to stay organized than having your shed custom made? Also, traditional sheds can tend to be a bit of a eye sore so being able to design your own shed will give you the freedom to not only have a place to store things, but an opportunity to make your shed a focal piece of your garden, enhancing it’s appeal rather than taking away from it. Special stains or carvings can make custom sheds oh so enticing rather than the plain wood or metal encasing that you see at wholesale hardware stores.
- Pretty Pool Houses
If you have a pool then you might want to consider having a pool house built nearby your pool. A pool house doesn’t have to be like the community pools you see with slats and shingles. It can be made of quality material with pillars and trimmings that can make it double as a guest house, depending on what your plans for it are. Having an area to shower and change without dragging the chlorine water inside is such a nice idea and makes it a lot easier on the mind to have guests over to enjoy your swimming pool without fear of them getting the entire inside of your home soaking wet and smelling like a pool.
There are so many more ways that you can enhance your garden if you get creative about it. Even adding different kinds of flowers and trees or plants can make a big difference. The most important factor is making sure that you are making your garden into your own oasis whether that be with a change as big as beautifully designed pergolas or as small as adding some cushions to your wicker furniture. Whatever you decide to do, let your garden be a place where you can breathe easily and refresh yourself and get ready to re-enter this crazy world we call life.
