Creative Garden Ideas That Transform Your Garden
Add Outdoor Lighting
People still like to sit outdoors when it’s night time, especially if it’s warm out – so why not get some nice lights? I love the look of beautiful garden lanterns hanging from trees, and how it can literally transform your space. You can buy them online, and there are lots of options to fit in with your garden style to make it look picturesque.
You can run them from the house, so you don’t need to worry about any electrician costs and, it will create a great atmosphere.
You can also add landscaping lights to your garden as well. I love the way they transform my outdoor space and had to number one in my creative garden ideas list. They were super easy to install too. Below, is the front walk entrance to our home and the landscape lights transformed the space immediately!
I also added Solar String Lights to my backyard to create a magical space, and I still love how they look. All I did was nest them in between the wood slots in my fence – magical!
Clean up the Clutter
The last thing you want is to be looking at clutter when you are in your garden. This could be anything from old garden gnomes, to some garden appliances handing about. So, it’s important to make sure that you have the relevant storage. If you don’t already have a garage – this could be perfect for storing things that you might want out of the way – but don’t quite want to let go of yet.
One of the best things we ever did for our backyard space was to organize it all and get rid of shrubs we didn’t want or that were overgrown. You would be amazed at the difference it makes.
