I think it’s safe to say that one of the best things about spring is the moment everything starts to bloom. Suddenly there are bursts of colour everywhere. The air feels fresh and smells clean. The world has woken up from its cold winter slumber. With it comes great possibilities for creative souls; like gardening.
What you do with your garden is greatly dependant on what you want from it. Some enjoy having a vegetable garden, taking pride in growing their own food for their home. Others prefer simple trees and bushes, simple and easy to maintain. Finally, there are those who live for flowers, believing a garden should be littered with colour. Find out where your passion lies by looking through Pinterest and Houzz.
Think about the amount of time you have available to maintain your garden. If you can’t invest a lot of time into its upkeep, consider choosing a low maintenance garden.
The following images are to help fuel your imagination. I have found that Pinterest has some of the best tips and tricks. Go ahead and look on your own, but these just show how infinite the possibilities are with your garden.
It’s amazing how adding a few succulents can really freshen up your garden.
Before you throw something away, consider the possibilities of using it as a planter.
Again, don’t look at something as a problem, but as a possibility.
The outdoors are forgiving because you can mix up the ground pattern as much as you want. You can go from stone, to wood, to grass.
Not only would this be perfect for children, but it would be awesome for adult games nights as well.
I’ve seen this a few times and I always think it’s a brilliant idea.
I don’t know why I haven’t seen this more often, but this is a huge energy saver. Not only will it light up your backyard, but you also avoid all the wires!
