When many people plan out a garden, they focus on what plants they want to grow. Do you want to focus on flowers or vegetables? What type of soil do you want to use? These are all excellent questions, but you don’t want to neglect the fantastic décor options available in your garden. Today, we’re looking at some of the most exciting decorative projects you can add to your garden to see which ones are right for you.
Wind chimes are a fantastic way to add a bit of color and sound to your personal space. Many people find the gentle sounds of chiming glass calming, while others may prefer the soft clunks of bamboo from a wooden chime. No matter your preferred style, wind chimes offer an easy-to-install and relaxing form of decorative flair.
Any area of the garden not actively growing plants can become a decorative surface—for example, you can use large flat stones to create a garden path. Glass pebble paving comes in various colors to create beautiful mosaics surrounding planted areas. These customizable surfaces are one of your garden’s most exciting decorative projects because the only limit is your imagination.
Water features look lovely in a garden, but they provide alternative bonuses you may not have considered. A birdbath or fountain looks nice and brings a little white noise to your personal oasis, but it also attracts birds who want to splash around or cool off. Birds are great for your vegetable garden, keeping insects at bay so they won’t spoil your crops.
Most people garden while the sun is out, but adding lighting to your garden path or hanging string lights creates a mesmerizing and enchanting ambiance when the sun goes down. If your garden has a place to sit, enjoy the fruits of your labor with some soft lights while the sounds of the evening envelop you.
