There’s something magical about having a garden that looks almost like a paradise sanctuary. When the weather is warm and we need somewhere to go and gather our thoughts, where could be better than a garden filled with leafy green plants and trickling water features?
Just about anybody can create a paradise garden, but the level you go to will depend on the budget you have and how much time/maintenance money you’re willing to commit to it. People have spent years creating their paradise gardens, and spend hundreds every month maintaining them!
Use these 8 ways to make your very own:
No paradise garden has old dog chew toys and dead flowers everywhere, so start by de-cluttering. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and get rid of anything ruining the look of your paradise garden. If you’ve gotten so used to your garden that you can’t tell, ask a trustworthy friend to tell you what needs to go and what can stay.
#2 Plant Some Beautiful Flowers
Beautiful flowers are a must in any paradise garden, as are leafy green plants. One man from Leeds imported tropical flowers and plants from other countries! You need to take your budget into account, however.
#3 Add Water Features
Water features instantly add an element of calm and tranquility to the outdoors. The bigger you can go, the better. A pond is always a beautiful addition to make, or you could simply add a couple of smaller features if you don’t have the time or money for a pond.
#4 Invite Wildlife to Stick Around
Wildlife will stick around in your garden if you include a couple of different features. Research which flowers attract which animals, for example. Birds love water features to bathe in, and you can also add feeders for them. Don’t manicure the lawn too much; a lawn that is a little longer will be more appealing to wildlife. Naturally having wildlife in the garden will give it a beautiful edge.
#5 Create a Space to Relax
A space to relax in the garden is a must. Consider purchasing a bench and placing it in a warm spot, or you could even have a hammock! You can buy free standing hammocks these days, so you won’t require anything special to install one.
#6 Add an Outdoor Living Area
An outdoor living area is perfect if you want to invite your friends over. Think of it as you would an indoor living area; have a mirror, a coffee table, and comfortable chairs. Your door leading up to the house can even make a difference here; why not make it colourful, or classy?! You can create any effect you want with a professional company like classiccomposites.co.uk. You can really get creative with this!
#7 Plant Trees for Privacy
Want privacy in your garden? There’s no better way to get it than by planting trees. Consider having some fairy lights in them to add an element of magic.
#8 Commit to Maintaining It
Finally, if you want a garden that truly feels like paradise, commit to maintaining it. All gardens require some maintenance, so make sure yours is suited to the time and money you have.
Go ahead, let yourself relax with a gorgeous paradise garden!
