Many people who would like to have a home garden will prefer having a big garden that stands out. However, this is not a luxury many get to enjoy because there is seldom enough space to set it up. People will often find themselves with just enough space to set up a small home garden. Well, we have some good news for you. Even with your small garden, you can still be able to make it stand out.
Here are 4 tips on how to make your small garden to stand out.
#1 Consider the perspective you are working on it from
First and foremost, your garden is meant to be for your own personal enjoyment therefore you need to figure out where you will mostly be looking at your garden from, and that becomes the perspective you should work on it from. For instance, if you will want to enjoy the view of your garden from the patio, that should be your starting point in deciding on the layout of your garden so that it stands out from that point of view.
#2 Be bold with what you accessorize your garden with
You must always remember that the lawn and patio are part of your garden therefore the accessories you put here as well as the layout you chose for them must be bold so that they can stand out. You could consider geometric shapes and straight lines as the simplicity of this will make the garden stand out more.
#3 Don’t overdo things
Maintaining the practice of simplicity, don’t use more than three different elements when decorating your garden because it will appear too busy and this is not a good thing. For instance, use only three different varieties of flowers, three different flooring materials, and so on as this will ensure your garden has consistency and symmetry therefore making it pop out more.
#4 Don’t forget about the lighting
You have to remember that for your garden to stand out, it must look as beautiful at night as it does during the day therefore you need to install good lighting that complements your layout as well as colors. Layer your lighting and ensure it complements the areas you want to stand out such as paths, steps, sitting area, small trees and interesting wall surfaces, among others. All you need to ensure is that your entire garden glows in the night.
These are very simple ideas to implement in your small garden yet very rewarding. Be sure to give them a try and you will be amazed as to how much transformation your garden will undergo and make it the envy of your neighbors.
