Eight Ways To Beautify Your Garden
Are you looking to beautify your yard or simply keep yourself busy during self-isolation? Gardening is a great hobby that can have meditative effects on the mind. Here are eight ways to beautify your garden and make it a comfortable and inviting space for you and your guests to enjoy!
- Thrift-Store Garden
Looking to beautify your yard but don’t want to break the bank? Thrift stores are often filled with colorful trinkets and treasures that can easily be converted into a garden decoration. Old boats, doors, cooking items, and so much more are painted and given new life as flowers bloom within them.
- Patio Paradise
Even if you don’t have room for a large garden, your patio can be an amazing space to work on your green thumb. Create a relaxation space on your patio by adding a small table and chairs or a comfy patio set. Add plants to fill in gaps and make your space more inviting.
- Lawn Edging
Lawn edging is a fairly inexpensive way to divide your yard and help keep mulch, stones, or sand where they belong! Create beautiful pathways and flowerbeds—all by using a simple item! This flexible material can create curved or straight edges that help your yard look and feel cleaner and more modern.
- Garden Gnomes
While some people have a fear of these silly statues called gnomophobia, other people collect them. From cute and cuddly to inappropriate or even undead, there are many types of gnomes to choose from. Consider gnome collecting for your garden as two hobbies in one!
- Oh, the horror!
This one may not be for everybody, but if you’re a fan of horror movies, this one is for you! Thanks to custom shops like www.etsy.com and www.thisiswhyimbroke.com , there are horror movie-themed gnomes! Your garden will be sure to spark up a conversation and turn heads of passersby!
- Rock Garden
If you live in a rocky area, you can scavenge for rocks that catch your eye and use them to make a beautiful rock garden. Clean them off and use them to create a border or wall, paint them to look like flowers or bugs, and hide them along your plants! Cute faces and quotes can also make a rock garden come to life!
- Light the Night
Solar-powered lighting is a wonderful way to keep your yard feeling inviting long after the sun has gone down. This is perfect for showing off a particular part of your garden, lighting pathways for people to tour through the night. While there are plenty of options for lighting your yard, solar is both eco-friendly and requires little maintenance over the years. No need to have an outlet nearby or batteries on hand.
- Hand-crafted creations
Hand-crafted creations are a great way to get the entire family involved in creating an eye-captivating piece for your garden. Almost every craft store and some retail stores have kits for creating mosaic stones, stepping stones, and birdhouses. They also make great gifts for parents and grandparents!
