If you are one of those people who have a green thumb, your garden is the most important place for you in the house. You go above and beyond to have a beautiful, peaceful place where you can relax after a hard day`s work. You may not have been aware of this, but not every climate and soil are good for growing plants and simply having a colorful garden. Luckily, New Jersey is one of those perfect places for a fairytale-like garden. So, if you are thinking about relocating home to New Jersey, or some other state with an equally suitable climate, in the pursuit of an impeccable yard, this is the right place for you. Here are some imaginative ideas on how to decorate your garden that will not break the bank!
Paint the patio floor and easily decorate your garden
A garden is more than just the plants and trees you have growing in it. It also includes a patio, the outdoor furniture pieces, and nighttime lighting. So, if you want to quickly add a breath of fresh air to your garden, simply paint the patio floor. This is something you can do by yourself, and, with a bit of good organization, you can even finish it in a day. Whether you want to paint it in one color, or you want to optically divide the floor with the help of two or more different colors – it is all up to you! Build a treehouse and give your kids a chance to enjoy your garden
Build a treehouse and give your kids a chance to enjoy your garden
You can make a family project out of building a treehouse. Once everything is said and done, you will have bonded with your family, and be left with a nice and decorative piece for your garden. Just imagine the warm spring days, when you are relaxing in your chair on the patio, drinking tea or coffee and watching your kids having the time of their lives playing in the treehouse you built for them. What more could you possibly want in life?
Bring your A game when it comes to lighting
Nothing can make your garden more romantic than beautiful twinkling lights. You will be surprised how big of a change a couple of well-placed bistro lights or lanterns can bring to your backyard. Again, you have all the control when it comes to their placement and type. Just know that the warm glow will instantly turn your garden into something straight from fairytales. Once you see how your garden looks during the sunset with the lights slightly shimmering, you will never be able to go back to what it was before.
Infuse some new life into your old garden bench
If you have a backyard, we are pretty sure you own at least one garden bench. Your bench might be looking old and lifeless at the moment, but there is an easy way to revive it. Besides a coat of fresh paint, which is always the easiest way to transform a garden bench, you can get imaginative with your options. How about you make your bench into a showcasing place for all of your plants you are so proud of? There is nothing better than being innovative and unique. And, let`s be honest. How many similar benches have you seen in your lifetime?
Decorate your garden by making your own table
By now, we have already established that you must be a creative person. After all, it takes a lot of creativity to plant flowers in a way that the whole neighborhood will envy you on your garden at the end of the day. So, if you want them to envy you even more (if such a thing is possible), consider making your own table. You can recycle a lot of old materials, and make something that will be unique for your garden only. And, whether you want to showcase your pots and plants on it, or you want to use it as a coffee table, the choice is yours. Give it your best shot because a unique table can make or break your garden`s appeal.
Other ideas you should consider
Since there are about a million other ideas on how to decorate your garden, it is impossible to mention them all. Here are a couple of other brief mentions we think are worthy of your effort.
- Decorate your fence. It is the first thing anyone will see when they enter your house, so it is a good idea to spend some time working on it.
- Consider adding some window boxes. Nothing will give your house, and garden, a more rustic and homey look.
- Use plants as ornaments. After all, your plants are the backbone of the entire garden, so it only makes sense that they should take center stage.
- Be unique. There are no wrong ideas when it comes to garden decorations. Whatever it is that you see fit, you should try and do.
- Pay attention to the overall look. The only `bad` thing you can do for your garden is mix and match too many different styles. One to two different styles is okay. Five and more just make for a messy look.
Clearly, you have many options if you want to revive your garden with some new decorations. No matter if you are starting from scratch, or simply adding to a previously existing garden, there are many ways to decorate your garden. However, if you are moving, you will want to be extra careful when packing up your garden. Trust All in One Moving and Storage NJ to help you transport as many things as possible from your beloved garden. Not all hope is lost even if you have to begin afresh in a new place. It is just a chance for you to get even more creative.
