You have probably heard the expression “Your garden is an extension of your indoor living space.” Regardless if you heard the expression from a neighbor or a home improvement professional, the point is your garden is ready to be transformed into a work of art that extends the amount of room you have for entertaining guests, as well as giving your more space to get away from it all.
The question is not whether to transform the garden into a compelling work of art; the question is how to make your garden into a work of art.
The Attractive Art of Lawn Edging
You have pulled weeds from the garden, as well as cultivated a diverse number of plants to bloom into an array of dazzling colors. The grass surrounding the garden has received a thorough mowing, but you are still missing one important step to make your garden into a work of art.
It is called lawn edging.
In addition to enhancing the visual appeal of the yard, lawn edging also increases the curb appeal of your home by presenting a highly manicured appearance. You do not have to break the family home improvement budget and the efficient garden enhancement project saves you a considerable amount of time trimming around the garden. Finally, creating a healthy lawn edge will prevent invasive weeds and other desirable types of plants from entering your garden.
There are three primary types of lawn edgers:
- · Walk behind edger
- · Manual stick edger
- · Motorized handheld edger
After edging your garden, the time has come to take a close look at what is inside of the garden. Every garden can use a little bit of art, and we do not mean placing prints or photographs along the fence line. We are talking about adding at least one sculpture, which will make your garden a lot more art friendly.
Every space both indoors and outdoors has a story to tell. By adding a sculpture in the garden, you create a unique story that you can explain to everyone that visits your home. Although sculptures that are part of a fountain represent a popular addition to a garden, you have a seemingly countless number of sculpture options to make your garden into a work of art.
Install a Custom Gazebo or a Custom Pergola
As we said, a garden represents an extension of your home’s indoor living spaces. With that in mind, consider adding a stylish custom pergola or a custom gazebo to make your garden into a work of art. Gazebos and pergolas do a good job of extending rooms such as the kitchen and living room. The spacious outdoor entertainment space offers you several ways to enhance the ambiance of an outdoor dinner party. You can opt for a sleek stainless steel pergola or an authentic wooden gazebo to transform your garden into a work of art.
Plant More Flowers
Nothing says fine art better than a meticulously sculpted flower bed. Most gardens have plenty of space to expand flower beds. The key is to review what you currently have in your current floral lineup, and then search for flowers that complement the appearance of the current lineup of flowers. You want to incorporate a wide variety of colors to produce an attractive rainbow effect, without distracting from other art elements placed within the garden.
Furniture as Art
Outside of improving the curb appeal of your home, an attractive garden is also the ideal place for relaxation. With a fountain humming a soothing sound and the wildlife surrounding the garden making a peaceful symphony of audio bliss, your garden offers refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Enjoying the tranquil ambiance exuded by your garden requires the careful placement of stylish outdoor furniture. Bright stripes and bold floral patterns will complement the colorful appeal of your garden. However, you also want to consider outdoor furniture that present an artistic appearance that makes your garden into a work of art.
Let There Be Light
You do not have to develop a complicated plan to transform your garden into a work of art. With the sun moving overhead, why not take advantage of this free resource by allowing more of it into your garden. The plants and flowers will thank you, and you can enhance the beauty of other elements inside of the garden by allowing the sun to shine on them. You can also install more lights around the sides of the garden to enhance the artistic touches you have already made to the garden.
Finally, try to be creative when it comes to other elements in your garden. For example, you can set concrete garden blocks around your garden to create a beautiful border. A small fish pond located next to the main walkway will enhance the natural appeal of your garden, as well as make your garden into a work of art.
