Wouldn’t you love a garden that looks and feels unique? Not only will it make your neighbors green with envy, it will add a lot of value to your home. Of course, you could just be looking to make your garden unique and special for you own personal enjoyment and that’s fine too. So, what type of changes could you make to ensure your garden is the piece de resistance of your street. Well, we’ve got a few ideas.
Add A Water Feature
A water feature could be anything from a full sized swimming pool to a small fountain. Either way, it could make your garden look absolutely fantastic and truly stunning. Just imagine having an infinity pool in your backyard. If you don’t know what an infinity pool is, it’s where it looks like the pool is dropping over the edge of the garden. It’s a beautiful optical illusion that is tied into the idea of ostentation and success.
Of course, a smaller water feature could be just as attractive. You could use a stone or marble water fountain to centre your garden. You might even be able to build up the rest of the design around it and make it look absolutely stunning.
Use Exotic Plants
If you really want your yard to stand out from the rest why not try using unique plant life such as tropical plants. You can purchase tropical plants that will grow in any climate, such as palm trees. You will be making a commitment to your garden as these plants often need extra care and attention. It’s important that they get the right amount of water and nutrients from the soil. If your garden isn’t offering what these plants need, you’ll have to provide it yourself. That can mean more time maintaining your garden. But if you love gardening, that’s not likely to be a negative.
Use An Expert
You can think about getting some expert advice on how to style and design your garden. For instance, you may want to use landscaping services. Getting a landscape design is like using an interior designer compared with a DIY room renovation. The effect is going to be substantially different with the designer’s work arguably looking a lot more impressive. If you want your garden to stand out, this step could certainly appeal to you.
Create A Theme
Or finally, how about making your garden look completely different from your home and your street by basing it around a theme. Since we mentioned using tropical plant life, what about a Hawaiian paradise. With colourful flowers, a cool water feature and a clever design, this is something that you can achieve. Or maybe you want to use some evergreen trees, to create a winter garden forest. It’s all about how much imagination you have and how creative you can be. If you combine all the previous ideas, you can create something that truly stands out in your neighborhood.
We hope you love these ideas and work to make your garden stand out on the street.
