Tuesday, July 26, 2016 • 17 comments
The garden is not just for vegetables and coffee in the morning. You can transform it into a great getaway where you can relax and spend time with friends and family. We all need a spot to wind down and relax, especially at the end of a long day.
You also want a spot that is just as lovely at night as it is during the day. If you work away from home, you might only be able to enjoy your garden at night. That is why it is just as important to create a garden that is just as lovely at night as during the day. Here is how to put together a gorgeous garden to help you relax and get away from everyday responsibilities.
1. Reclaiming Your Style
If you love building and creating things, this is a great way to develop a garden you’re your own personal style. Build furniture pieces like garden chairs and tables or planters that are unique to you and your style. Creating detailed and architectural elements can bring a certain element of luxury and personality to your garden. Before planting anything ensure you set the pots out in the beds and look at each on for a while to ensure they’re in the right place before planting.
2. A Hosting Space
If you love spending time in the garden with family and friends, then you need to design a hosting space. Creating a relaxing patio space means you can enjoy it by yourself or with family and friends. You don’t want to leave your patio when hosting so ensure you are prepared. Include the essentials when creating an outdoor hosting area, an outdoor dining setting is a must, for sitting and relaxing. A barbeque and mini bar fridge will ensure you don’t have to keep going back inside for food and refreshments.
To make the overall project more affordable you can find mini bar fridges for sale online. Ensure your barbeque and fridge is kept nicely tucked away under a shelter. If you don’t have a patio, you can create a paved area by laying out colored pavers in a random pattern. This will create a sophisticated look and help to blend better with natural elements.
3. Build From The Patio
Create a sense of permanency and fluidity by starting with your deck and continuing into the garden area. Start by adding some landscaping features around the edges of your patio and start to create a more flourished feel as you advance deeper into the garden.
4. A Sweeping Pathway
A wide, sweeping pathway that navigates to the front entrance invites visitors to linger and enjoy your garden. Rather than just storming up to the front door. This also applies to your garden. If you have a little spot in the middle of your garden, a sweeping pathway gives a sense of established grandeur.
Paths visually pull you through the garden and with some extra width it encourages you to slow down and smell the roses. Try and incorporate low sitting hedges or flowers to edge your path. A range of plants that bloom in different seasons will ensure a new and interesting look every month.
5. Playful Paths
If you are looking to add some fun to a standard garden, a whimsical path leading to a secret garden within your garden is a great way to enhance curiosity and enjoy your space.
If you’re looking to create some privacy but don’t want to ruin the aesthetic of your garden, you can install a garden screen. They are the ultimate way to shield your garden space from prying eyes. They will hide you relaxing spot but will not screen your plants from the sun.
Follow these step to create a beautiful and relaxing garden getaway. The next time someone is walking past your garden they may stop and stay awhile. Such unexpected visits turn into fun gatherings to remind you to stop and smell the roses.
