Today let me admit the truth. When I built my house for the first time, I was pretty careless and lacked proper foresight. What’s more, finances were tight and I constantly looked for ways to cut down expenses. Quite obviously, outhouse decoration was the last thing on my mind. However, the construction work was complete and I shifted to my new home.
One day, I invited my friends to my place and as we finished our lunch, some of them expressed their wish to take a walk around my garden. It was not until then that I realized the need of a well-decorated garden. Since my backyard lay in a disheveled and messy condition, I didn’t feel great about inviting them to my lawn. Though they didn’t complain much, it was perhaps the most embarrassing day of my life. Just as they left my place, I called up my sister and narrated the incident. Just then, she gave me some handy tips and ideas to adorn my garden in a cost-effective way. Today, I intend to share those ideas with my readers.
What appears in your mind the moment you think about lawn adornment? Plants, trees, driveways and perhaps a pond – right? Yes, these are certainly the basic features that a garden. However, if you want something unique or extraordinary, consider these following tips.
When talking about colors, the first thing that comes in our mind is flowers. Whether it’s winter, spring or summer, consider planting flower plants in your lawn. That way, you’ll have a colorful garden right through the year. If you have a fountain in your lawn, purple colored flowers will enhance the look of your backyard. However, you may plant flowers in other interesting colors as well – pink, red, yellow, orange, and blue. White is also a good option for balancing all other vibrant colors in the lawn. The size of your flowers matter as well; you may choose small, middle-sized as well as big flowers. Remember, bright colors play an important role in enhancing the charm of your property.
If your garden is lush and attractive, it’ll surely attract a lot of beautiful birds and other aerial creatures. As most of you already know, a lawn without birds is dull and lifeless. So, if you want a highly attractive look for your lawn, consider ringing your lawn with beautiful chirps and tweets. You can do this by hanging small vessels for birds’ eating, drinking and bathing. Besides, keep the feeding pot full with grain. That way, you’ll see your garden soulful with butterflies and birds.
