How to Redecorate Your Old Garden and Create a Fabulous Space for Relaxation?

People living in houses with backyards and gardens, as opposed to those in apartments, often have much more work to do to maintain the area. But in those quiet moments when you get home and unwind in your little oasis, it’s all worth it. If you’re not too happy about how your garden looks at the moment, here’s how you can create an amazing space, whatever its size, to chill out after a long day.

Make It Pop with Color

Yes, green soothes your eyes and there are not many activities more attractive for an afternoon off than sitting in your garden and enjoy the calming view. However, if you want to spice things up and add some variety and contrast, opt for flowers or flowering plants, or even herbs and vegetables with lovely flowers, such as spring onions, dill, thyme, rocket, rosemary. Also, having beautiful flowers in your garden will attract beneficial insects who will pollinate and clean up any pests for you. If you’d like it to be more glamorous-looking, decide on a color theme and offer your eyes a charming combination of green and purple, or green and yellow, or whatever you like best.

Add to the Variety with Colorful Pots

Interesting pots or containers can have an even more charming effect in your garden. A bright yellow plastic pot, or an interestingly shaped one, is much more pleasing to the eye than the dull brown ones. If you’re creative, you can use almost any container to keep your flowers and plants. An old wellington boot with polka dots can be perfect, as well as colorful metal boxes of different sizes. You’d want to contrast sizes of plants and pots in the garden for the loveliest display. If there’s a big pot with a fruit tree or your favorite plant, make it focal and add smaller pots around it.

Choose a Good Looking Furniture

The most beautiful relaxing gardens have outdoor furniture that provides a place for rest, but also family gatherings and having friends over for a glass of wine. Even though plastic furniture is the cheapest, it doesn’t look as lovely as bamboo or wooden pieces. You can even invest in iron chairs – those look particularly fancy. Whatever you opt for, make sure you add just enough cushions to make it comfortable throughout the long hours you will be spending in this area. Bonus points if the cushions match your color theme.

Don’t Let the Weather Get to Your Garden

Garden is an amazing place to spend time in the spring and summer, but you’ll want to keep it safe when the rain hits. If space allows, you can add a small gazebo to keep your furniture, and you can even sit underneath it in not-that-great weather conditions. Or you can opt for a closed veranda that you can open as soon as the weather gets better. If you are crafty enough, you can take up on this project yourself; if, on the other hand, you’d rather have the job done by the professionals, a lot of companies, such as Sphere Constructions, can ensure you’ll get the type of sanctuary in your garden you’d envisioned.

Add Some Garden Art

Sometimes it’s easy to achieve the look of a perfect garden – but the one that looks like a thousand other gardens. By adding something that removes the doubt about who space belongs to, something unique to you, the garden will reflect your personality and add character. A garden with a personal touch will be especially nice both for you and your guests to enjoy. Think adding ornaments, an empty frame in a contrasting color, a big mirror, or even sequin segments on the pots that you can easily add with some glue. (This will make a charming play with the light!)

Enjoy the Sound

Relaxing sounds can transport your mind to a wood or a field in the country, far away from the busy traffic and stressful city environment. Take the murmur of flowing water, for example. Even a small garden can incorporate a water feature such as a little puddle and a fountain. For a harmonious feel, let the whole setup be made out of natural materials, such as stone, wood or shells, to enhance the peacefulness of your little piece of heaven. If you don’t want to install a water feature, try adding wind chimes. They are incredibly relaxing and nice every time they make a sound, and they can even look extra lovely.

By following these tips, your garden will soon be your most favorite piece of your home – and it’s no wonder. Being outdoors, but still at home, with a good book or a glass of lemonade – is there anything better? Enjoy!
