Best Garden Features to Add in Spring

From the gentle trill of birdsong to the warm feeling of the sun on your skin during the height of summer. Being in your garden is often some of the best memories that you can make at home, which is why it is important to actually make sure that your garden is as beautiful and welcoming as possible. The better your garden space, the better memories you will make for you, your friends and your family.

So, what can you do to your garden space to make it as beautiful as possible without much effort on your part?

A Plan

The best way to make your garden as perfect as possible, with little effort, is to start with a plan. This can be as simple as a little sketch, or it can go all the way to an actual Cad-designed piece that takes you months to create. Whatever floats your boat or whatever our skill level may be. In your design phase, you can decide layout, style and even the size of some of your best features.

This way nothing that you create in your garden will be a surprise. Good for the money-planning side of gardening, as well as allowing you to choose a specific action plan when it comes to actually doing the work. There is nothing better than knowing exactly where to start after all.

Water Feature

The sound of a beautiful water feature in your garden can be some of the best and most tranquil sounds in the universe. After a long, hard, day at work, coming home to a beautiful garden feature is some of the best therapy. Not only that, but a good pond also offers a whole new species of plants and even animals that you can add to your garden space. Fish, frogs and even newts can find a home in your new water feature.

And, let’s be honest, don’t we all love the fishing gnome statue? Who wouldn’t want an excuse to have that just sitting in their garden space?

Lawn

It may be a classic, but there is a very valid reason for this. The lawn is beautiful, green and some of the best places to sit in the whole of England. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you are stuck with a simply typical lawn. In fact, you can make it as interesting or as mundane as you might want it to be. Diamond shaped, oblong or even circular can all be interesting shapes to add to your overall garden design.

Not only is this just an extra touch, it also draws the attention of the eye. This is valuable in a small garden space, as it draws the eyes away and distracts people from the actual size of the space. A small space isn’t the end of the world, as you can use perception and tricks of the eye to let your garden visitors believe it is a much bigger space than it actually is.

Intricate Flower Beds

Do you want to be the Leonardo Da Vinci of garden design? Then you need to ensure that your garden space is as intricate as humanly possible, which includes the flower beds. Use diamond shapes, hexagons and even spirals here to make it as eye-catching as possible. The more interest that you present to the eye, the better looking and interesting your garden space will be.

Ornaments

A good gnome is one of the best features that you can possibly have in your garden space. They are cute, funny and just a little bit interesting. It adds character to an otherwise plain and boring space that might otherwise be a little drab. Greenery is all well and good, but if it isn’t broken up by something at least a little bit interesting it might become too boring.

Furniture

What is the point of all of this beauty if you have nowhere comfortable from which to enjoy the view from? For that reason, a smashingly designed wicker sofa or cane chair can be the comfort factor that you need in order to finally take a break from all of your hard work. Of course, you could just stick to the same old, same old, plastic furniture that has been a feature in our families gardens for generations. But, where is the fun or design in that?

Imagine this: you, out in the sun with the beverage of your choice and sat in a piece of furniture that you genuinely love. What could be better?

Structures

Okay, so we all probably already have a garden shed or similar structure in our garden. But, that is boring and not really something we dream of having. Instead, why not have a special space for you to practice your favourite hobby? It could be a writing room away from the house, an outside office or even just a playroom for your children and grandchildren to enjoy (if you build it to last that is).

And there you have it! The perfect garden features that can make your green space feel that much more interesting and special, with plenty of features for you to enjoy and show off to your friends at the annual BBQ.
