A house without a garden is like a queen without a crown. It looks incomplete to just have a barren surrounding around our house. The good news is that you can now design your front yards as well as the backyards as per your budget. Here are a few basic, easy to do ideas for all those of you who want to utilize that little piece of land outside into a beautiful garden.
- Decide the shape
Looking at the piece of land that you have, think of a shape that you would like to give it. Maybe a circular bed of flowers surrounded by lush green grass or a circular grassy piece of land in the middle for keeping the garden table, connected to the main house through a pathway and flowers in the surrounding. Moreover, you could have just a simple square or oblong shaped grassy land surrounded by a bed of flowers on all sides. So all you need is a plan, a strong spade and loads of energy to dig it yourself.
Next is to find low budget plants or seeds to put in. You may also buy your favorite flowering plants, take it out off the pot and divide it into perennials and place each perennial at different spaces in your garden. When you pull the plant into two or three parts make sure there are roots and a few stems in each section. Then just dig a hole and fix the plants in at different places. They will soon grow stronger and popup flowers in beautiful colors. However, don’t forget to give them water and sunlight.
Look around your garden. There need to be one or two trees that make space look fuller, cooler and complete. You may invest in putting fruit trees, it attracts various insects and birds to your garden and will give you fruits as well. You may even invest in bushy green plants if you don’t want trees to cover up the garden.
- Beautify The Garden
Now once your garden is planted and you are waiting for the plants to grow, you may start the beautification process. Gravel is a cost-effective material and gives a good look to the garden. To lay it in place, you need to first mark out space, then you need to remove all the loose grass and clear the space, put a permeable membrane and place gravel over it. Doing that would convert your plan into a beautiful garden just the way you like.
- Light Up
Invest in outdoor fairy lights. It’s available all year round in online shopping stores. You can spread the lights in any way you want. Over the trees, around the bushes or even stalked up on bamboo sticks at intervals in the garden. These lights connect with regular switches so you don’t even need an electrician service and can do it yourself.
Now bring out the garden chairs, table and enjoy your favorite meal outdoors.…
