Creating Your Perfect Garden
Robin Williams once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying “let’s party!” Get your party started by creating your own perfect garden! Expanding an outdoor living space can be fun and enjoyed all summer long. Before you begin, you may want to consider some essential design and construction elements to ensure form and function match your expectations. For starters…
Be Aware of Your Space
First, consider the location and size of your space. Does it lend itself to cozy and intimate or provide plenty of room for games and activities? Some things to consider for maximizing space are adding levels, paving, and the right furniture.
Choose Your Style
Like your home, every garden should have a style and some distinctive touch! There are many common garden styles such as Modern, Cottage, Japanese, and Coastal. Choosing a style gives your garden a personality. You can add fun garden décor like birdbaths, or other beautiful landscaping artwork to match your chosen style and bring your garden to life.
