Any garden lover will be looking down their garden considering ways they can enhance their garden. Depending on the style and look you want to achieve, there are always many options available. Some are more difficult than others to achieve, but if you get it right, you can make the garden the best room in the house, even if you are new to gardening. Let’s have a look at a few ideas:
Creating zones is a great way to achieve a secret and hidden feel to aspect to your garden. You can use a variety of methods to create this look. Such as free stand trellises with creeping plants growing across them, to raised borders which are stepped up quite high. You can use pagodas to have areas where the plants creep completely overhead if oyu so wish. By creating zones, you could have a family area with tables and chairs and a perfect, relaxing meditation zone just for you to hide in on those perfect sunny days. If you get it right, even if you live in the city, you can make it feel as if you are in some enchanted garden, which is quiet and serene.
Garden ornaments come in a wide variety of options. You could get a stone bench or some silver balls, or even some metal figures dotted about. There are ones that can be used to create a relaxing sound. Also, think about water features. If you have a meditation zone, a water feature can work very well. If you have a small garden, then garden mirrors are a great idea. They can create the illusion of more space and reflect any feature you are fond of.

Hanging baskets may be particularly effective if you have a small garden, especially if it is enclosed with walls all around. Instead of working across, you can work up the walls. You don’t necessarily need to stick to the traditional hanging basket look whether. Think about things such as vertical pallets, which can create a layering look up the wall. You can even plant vegetables here too.
A wall trellis can create a great look at the end of the garden or cover up any unsightly wall or fence. They can definitely brighten up the look of the garden and help you create the garden oasis feel, where you are surrounded by plants and nature.
You can create a garden path out of gravel, or slabs, or bricks or a combination of two of them, but if you have created divides and have a free-standing trellis, this could help create that division as well as giving you some way to navigate through the garden. A path can be a great feature that really adds that extra something to the overall look and feel. If your garden is big enough, you could create subpaths into the different areas of the garden.
