Landscaping Ideas for Creating a Magical Garden

Tracey Clayton is here to share some super fun ideas on to Create a Magical Garden. Spring is coming before you know it and it will be time to be outside again. Thanks for the awesome tips.

Have you noticed that the world seems to be moving much quicker
with each passing day? Everyone is in some sort of hurry, and no
one is stopping to smell the roses anymore. Spending time in the
garden is a way to get back in the slower circles of nature,
slow down, de-stress, relax and practice patience.
However, it is difficult to relax in a garden that is poorly landscaped
and maintained. Creating a magical garden can be, depending on
the space you have and the time you are willing to invest, simple.
Here are a few tips that will help you transform a worn-out or simply
not-good-enough outdoor space into a true oasis where you will
enjoy spending time.

Start with a clean slate

Go outside into your garden. Take a good long look at it. Done? Do
you see clutter or mess somewhere? Are there tools, bikes and other
unnecessary things lying around? Get rid of them. Store them in a
dedicated place (you can easily build your own shed) or throw them
away. Now move on to the lawn. If it is beyond repair, plant a new
one. Only when everything is nice and clean, you can start picturing
the potential this magnificent outdoor space has.

Set the stage

Your garden will not always be a place for solitude and relaxing.
Sometimes, you will welcome guests there, and that’s why it should
look inviting. Set the stage with a charming entrance. That can be
something as simple as a classic white picket fence or something
more demanding like a pretty arch. However, you should make sure
that the entrance doesn’t create an overly eclectic appearance in
your neighborhood. Picket fences might be the heart and soul of the
American suburbia, but they are not as popular in Australia, for
instance, where modern design is more preferred.

Work with what you have

It is impossible to start with an ideal canvas, sometimes, you have
to work with or around what you have. Take your cues from
expert landscapers from Sydney and other Australian cities
who are often forced to work with industrial elements and
urban disturbances. You can do something similar: if you have
unappealing walls, cover them with crawler plants or plant flowers
inside large ugly car tires. Old bathtubs and similar items can also
serve as planters. You just need to be creative.

Make it easy to wander around

You don’t want to walk across your lush green lawn. Luckily, pathways
are amazing landscaping elements which are not only functional, but
can also be beautiful. Stone, brick or plank paths make the perfect
addition to a dream-like garden, especially if you plant flowers or
bushes alongside them. You can also install lighting to make
it easier to get around at night.

Stop, and smell the flowers

Flowers create a harmonious, vivid and colorful environment. Not
only are these plants used for enhancing the appearance of your
garden, but you can also use their planters to showcase a modern,
organic, vintage or industrial style. How you scatter them around the
garden also matter. Be strategic about it and don’t
“over or underdress” any part of the yard.

A place to sit and enjoy the view

A garden is almost unnecessary if you can’t enjoy it. You need a
place from where you will listen to the birds sing and smell the
flowers. That’s why you need a sitting area where you can relax
and accommodate your guests. Choose charming furniture that
can resist the elements, but make sure you include some hints of
the indoor comfort, such as pillows, throw blankets and candles,
to make the space even more welcoming.

Some fairy dust for the end…

Just kidding… You can add something special that will make your
garden even more magical. That can be a pergola covered in vines,
a water feature such as a fountain or a lake, string lights above the
sitting area, a vintage bird’s cage, a bench tucked in a secret part of
the garden, a beautiful swing or a statue. Whatever you need to
believe in magic.
Now you have all the ideas you need to create your outdoor getaway. So, what are you waiting for? Your dream garden is just a few projects away!
