Gardens are your breathing spaces. A well-designed garden gives a beautiful spin to your house. Your garden is the “unwinding” corner of the home, houses a lot of positive energy, and witnesses numerous warm smiles.
When you are living in a Metro City, a garden comes as a calm respite from a busy “city life”. Garden design in any developed city becomes an essential part of one’s house.
Big, spacey gardens are very attractive and make a house very attractive. But when you are living in a big city, garden designing becomes a bit tricky; as gardens here are smaller owing to the soaring prices of real estate.
Your small garden can easily become a source of envy to the neighbours, if designed with finesse. Here are a few ideas to spin your garden around and turning it into an ineffably beautiful paradise.
Light it up with decorative lights: A fantastic idea to breathe a new life into your garden is to use decorative lights. Lighting up a garden make it look magical, as if it has stepped out of a fairytale. It can be done in various ways like, you can illuminate trees with rope lights, outline the pavement with them, or just simply keep them hanging in the middle of your garden.
Go crazy with the pavement and floor designs: Go all out when you are planning the flooring and pavements. Don’t let anything hold you and your ideas back. And never hesitate to experiment with different colours and designs; you might be shocked at what going a “less-taken” route might do. Cute little lawns can be a wonderful addition to your tiny garden – keep them neat with a proper weed eater.
Use the wonder called “reflection”: Using a strategically placed mirror can immediately make your garden look bigger; not only this, it gives a beautiful edgy look to your garden. The light reflections on the mirror also make it lively. Just place the mirror tactfully and then conceal the corners with leaves or climbers to blend it in.
Beautify it with vertical gardening: Vertical gardening is perfect for small gardens. If you don’t have enough place for planting all that you want to, use this method. Not only is vertical gardening useful, it looks beautiful and ups the style quotient of your garden. You can also experiment here and unleash your artistic best.
Quirk it up with miniatures: You can take a step towards making your garden appealing, by using miniature decorative pieces to make your garden visually attractive. It can be anything like small rustic metal pieces, or bonsais, or tiny waterfalls; anything will do just get creative with it. You can also ask your kids to transfer some of the furniture of that doll house in one of the pots.
Use the non-traditional pots: Experiment with the pots you are using to plant your plants; get innovative and quirky with them. There are plenty of “out of the box” pots available in the market; and if you get extra experimental, you can try to replicate some DIY pots. You can work with a lot of things here, for example, you can use old containers and do something with them.
Build a small storage shed: Build a small storage shed for all your garden equipment. You can easily buy one or get one made if you are not in the mood for building it yourself. A storage shed is very useful, and the best part is, it looks super cute.
“Less is more”, make that small garden of yours a living example of this. Just get creative and experimental with your garden and take it from being an ordinary to an extraordinary garden. Just turn it around and see how it, in turn, works miraculously for your soul and mood.
