Gardening can seem exciting the first time around, but in the long run, you will feel like your garden isn’t as beautiful as it used to be.
We can tell you, however, that this has nothing to do with your garden changing in the physical sense. No witch tried to turn your garden to play a trick on you.
But it happens to a lot of gardeners that they eventually lose track in garden design. It’s not that they are too lazy to think about the welfare of their garden.
It’s just that when they first looked at their garden, it was the best sight they have set their eyes on. Then, they couldn’t think of a reason to get into garden design.
But this is precisely what happens when you stop trying to improve your garden. The beauty wears out. But don’t worry. Just because your garden isn’t as visually gratifying as it used to be doesn’t mean that all hope is now lost.
You still have lots of time to save your garden, and in this post, we are going to share with you some pointers on how to get it done.
1. Shapen Up Your Lawn
Think of this as something you would do if you had to show up in a pictorial. Sure, if someone is going to take your picture for the sake of a social media status or Yearbook photo, you would want to look your best.
So, what’s the next thing you do? You go to the barbershop to get a haircut.
It’s also the same thing with garden design.
The trick here is to look at the length of the leaves. Make sure they aren’t too long. On the other hand, you also need to be sure that they aren’t too short either.
From your window, you will be able to see if your garden needs trimming or not apparently.
But if you haven’t been mending your garden for a couple of months, there is a higher chance that you need to prune your plants.
Pruning might sound like the most straightforward technique in the book, but it also happens to be one of the most effective. You’ll be surprised at what a well-kept garden can do.
2. Invest In Landscape
It’s not enough to have a garden at home. Even more important is giving it a personality.
If your garden has a personality, people can immediately relate to it.
Don’t get me wrong. Landscaping can be a bit expensive, but if you ask me, it’s worth if you are really into the realm of gardening.
You might want to start with something small such as paving the way to your garden and adding grey and white rocks to the flower bed areas. My recommendation would be black pavements. Grey pavements are also in style right now, but you want to stay as unique as possible when it comes to your garden.
3. Provide Enough Space For Tables And Chairs
A garden is rarely about flowers and trees alone. It’s also about the entire interface as a whole.
Most of the houses you’ll see in your neighborhood flaunt their beautiful tables and chairs in their yard along with their garden.
With regards to chairs and tables, it’s also important to consider the spacing. Aside from having a beautiful garden, you also want people to feel comfortable.
With that, it would be a good idea to provide a bigger space so people can easily slide into the chairs without worrying about hitting the plants.
