5 Simple Garden Design Ideas to Spruce Up Your Outdoor Space

Your front yard or garden doesn’t just enhance the curb appeal of your home but also creates your own unique andtranquil paradise filled with shade-giving trees and fragrant flowers. But what do you do when it feels a little lackluster and possibly needingsome TLC?

When your garden appears messy, it can affect the whole vibe of the space. It is important to breathe new life into it these spaces and we have listed some of the easiest and best ways to do just that. You don’t even need a lot of fancy tools or a huge budget to accomplish great results.

Whether you have a small garden or a large garden, a backyard garden or just a courtyard, here are a few simple ways in which you can transform your outdoor space and boost your property value in the process.

1. Create a planting plan

To ensure that your garden looks clean and well-structured, you need to plan your planting. This means you need to determine a good mix of both green structural plants and flowering plants. If you have rows of flowers, you can accent them with lush green bushes at the end. Smaller shrubs are great for small gardens while bigger trees work for bigger, more spacious gardens.

2. Add a water feature

If you want to transform your space into a romantic garden, adding a water feature will do the trick. It could be a stream that winds through it and empties out on a pond, or just a pond. Plant vibrant flowering plants along the edge of the water will add a sophisticated  touch or a whimsical touch depending on your gardening style.

3. Add furniture

Adding furniture doesn’t just make a garden look better but it also makes it much more useful. Now you have a place to have a morning cup of tea amidst nature or entertain your friends under the starry night sky. But make sure that you buy pieces that are weather-resistant, such as metal benches and chairs that will not rust when exposed to moisture.

4. Use DIY decor

While decorating a garden isn’t really expensive, you can still save your money and also partake in a fun little project by creating some DIY decor elements. You can make your own candle centerpieces by filling vintage terracotta pots with sand and pushing dinner candles in. You can also add to the beauty of your flower pots or herb garden by adding handmade labels to them. Write the name of the plant on small slate tiles using chalk.

5. Install metal yard art sculptures

When it comes to garden design, there is nothing more unique than metal yard art sculptures. While elevating the aesthetic of the space, they also give it a distinct and more artsy flair that is unlike anywhere else. You can use a sculpture to make a statement or scatter them around the garden for an avant-garde feel.
