Here are 7 best garden features for your home. Let’s take a look.
7 Best Garden Features
- Water feature
- Stone pathway
- Log Seating Arrangement
- Bird feeders
Let’s discuss each of these garden features one by one.
A garden can look more appealing if you add a water feature or a fountain. Install a simple bubbling fountain or choose from a variety of fancy water features that can go well with the available green space you have. You can also make a DIY water fountain by combining different terracotta flower pots and placing them in layers to make a nice water fountain.
Throw in some pebbles and water plants to make the water feature stand out. You can also place a class three tiered grey coloured fountain that always looks best in any garden. The gurgling sound of a fountain is not only therapeutic but the constant circulation of water keeps the temperature cool and pleasant. Moreover, birds love a water feature and you will find many birds coming to your garden for a refreshing dip.
A stone and gravel pathway is one of the best garden features that adds convenience and style to your garden decor. Choose the stones you like for your pathway. You can also go for white marble chips or if you like to keep your pathway firm, make sure the gravel sticks by gluing it to the floor.
For stepping stones, you can either use bricks, cut-out logs or stones to make stunning pavers that add style to your garden decor. If you take gardening as your hobby, then you can also create a rock garden that requires low-maintenance.
Log Seating Arrangement
For true nature-lovers, a natural setup is more appealing than a manmade setting. One of the best garden features that you can add to your garden decor is the log seating arrangement.
It requires zero maintenance and is fairly easy to install. All you need is to place cut-out logs as stools and create a table using a marble top on a cut-out log piece. If you want a two-bencher seating arrangement, then place a cut-out gutter pipe in the soil and on top keep a chunk of polished log. This looks outstanding in the outdoors.
Another garden feature that will spruce up the decor are bird feeders. You can even make your own bird feeder with these scrap wood project ideas. Add different colourful bird feeders to the wall in your garden and you can sit and enjoy your cup of tea while bird-watching.
One of the best ideas for garden decor is to add a trellis. You can help a climber or keeper work its way on the trellis. If you are looking to set up a vertical garden, a trellis looks best.
If you have added a privacy fence but want to make it look less boring, have a trellis. There are various creepers that you can grow on a trellis that not only give foliage but beautiful flowers as well. A yellow allamanda creeper looks stunning. You don’t have to be fancy when it comes to installing a trellis in your garden. A used coat hanger can also be used as a trellis if you use your imagination and creativity.
An arbor compliments any garden décor. It can be arched but not always. It is a structure with trellis on the sides and a slanted roof on the top. It not only provides shade and shelter but also helps to keep privacy. An arbor has structural elements to its side. It provides a perfect place in your garden where you can sit and enjoy the garden view, at the same time enjoying privacy.
A pergola is somewhat like an arbor but it has no side structures, just a roof on the top. If attached to the house, a pergola will extend from the roof, creating a shade where you can sit and relax. It is mainly used to provide shelter in hot summers. This garden feature can be added when you are building a house and give you a secluded space where you can have a proper seating arrangement and enjoy relaxing time under the shade.
