4 Simple Ways to Make your Garden Beautiful

I can’t tell you how many blog posts I’ve read offering fantastic tips on how to add a little something special to your home décor, a cushion here, a mirror there and voila, totally transformed. However, your outside space (whether it is a large garden, or a small yard in a terraced house) deserves the same attention as the rest of your home décor, and can also be improved by some rather simple changes. Here are just four of many ways to give your garden a little oomph.

1- Benches and tables and Chairs- oh my!

Perhaps the more pricey of my tips but investing in even just. one or two pieces of good quality luxury outdoor furniture will make such a difference to your garden. If you only have a couple of old, plastic chairs, or a wooden bench that looks like it’s been there for at least a century, you are unlikely to feel the urge to go outside and enjoy what your garden has to offer. Taking your family dinner outside into the open air can be such a pleasure, so a nice quality table and chair set is advisable.

2- Sparkly String Lights

An easy and quick way to make any outside area prettier is by hanging string lights. They come in a myriad of different styles, colours, and sizes, and definitely light up the space they are hung above. With so many types available, finding the one that fits your vibe and style the best will be simple enough; the problem is stopping at just one! Remember to measure your outside area and see how long the string lights should be, and then get to hanging!

3- Vertical Gardening

What better way to save space, and still grow your own herbs? Vertical gardening is cute, practical and will spruce up your outside space in no time. Easy to put together, you can even mix up what you choose to plant; all you’ll need are a few hangers, seeds, pots, and a wooden trellis. Plus, if you buy colourful pots it makes the whole alternative garden even cuter. This is even an option for a small yard where flowerbeds just aren’t feasible.

4-Butterfly Feeder

Now, this little gimmick that is the butterfly feeder will definitely increase your garden’s beauty. Just imagine the scene of when you make your way out to enjoy an outdoor activity, and you have a little butterfly fluttering nearby, magical! Easy to set down anywhere, the butterfly feeder is the perfect addition to any outside area you’re improving. Even a windowsill will do!

No matter the size of the space you’re dealing with, improving your garden is fun and an excuse to get creative. Whether you choose to focus on the details, the colours, or even just the lighting, getting the garden of your dreams is only a few steps away!
