What is the ideal garden size for you? Do you prefer a large or small garden? This collaborative post explains how not everyone has your average garden and that is a-okay.
To some of you, a garden is so much more than just a space at the back of your home. To some of you, a garden is so much more. It’s your little escape that your hard work has created, and the space is always going to be unique to from person to person.
Because you’ll have people who prefer bright plants over more subtle ones, and you’ll have people who prefer the subtle ones over the bright ones. Everyone has their own opinion, but not everyone has the same type of garden to use. Some people have the smallest of gardens, but manage to make them look so beautiful!
Some people have absolute acres, and have to employ people to help with the maintenance. For those of you with a not so average garden, we’ve got some great tips for you today! Keep on reading all you garden lovers, and see if we can help you add some more beauty!
When It’s Just Too Big To Manage
As we said, some of you are going to be blessed with a beautifully big garden. But sometimes the bigger it is, the harder it is to maintain. It’s a pain having to walk around it, and the maintenance usually takes longer.
But you could think about getting a John Deere Gator, which is a utility vehicle for your garden that makes getting around and maintaining it, even easier! Because you can’t find yourself blessed with acres worth of land, and not do your best to maintain it. There’s so many different things you could do, like make it a floral wonderland.
Or have bush sculptures dotted around, or have water features, or have cattle. Ok, so we could have kept the ors going on then, but instead we think you should do some Googling, and find out what would be most suited to you and the type of garden that you have.
Creating Beauty In The Smallest Of Gardens
Just because you have the smallest of gardens, it doesn’t mean you can ignore the beauty that you could create! For example, we think one of the best things you could do is have a little greenhouse. You can get some beautifully designed bespoke ones, and it doesn’t have to be all plain and dull.
Inside you can obviously plant whatever you wish to, but you can then decorate around it with beautiful hanging baskets and ornaments! The rest of the garden can then be dotted with beautiful flowers to make the place night and bright.
Keeping Up To Date With Trends
Yes… gardens do have trends, and we think you should definitely be keeping up with them if you want something you can be proud of. There are plenty of websites out there that will show you what the different trends are, and you’ll often find that they change with the seasons
Just make sure that whatever you do, you don’t complicate your garden. We think the less you have, and the wiser you use it, the better your garden is going to be in the finish.
