If your house is in an apartment building or you have limited outdoor space and you want to have a garden, then you do not need to be disappointed. You can create a wonderful space that you will love to spend your time on, especially for this time of year.
Find Your Garden Style: Before you start designing you should do a study on your terrace to see well what spaces you have to use. Think about the garden style that you like and with this as a criterion you can then think about what furniture you would like to put and what kind of plants.
Choose the colors: Immediately after choosing the garden style you like, the colors are next. Decide if you want to give color and liveliness to your garden or if you prefer to emphasize the green of the plants by choosing more neutral colors for the terrace furniture. Perhaps you want a nice green lawn.
Choose the accessories: You may be used to putting mirrors and art up inside your home but that does not mean you can not add a beautiful mirror to your balcony. If, for example, you have chosen vintage decor for your space, enhance it with a mirror on the outside wall or on your garden shed that is made of raw wood. For some vintage decoration, you can add old worn wicker boxes, in which you can put pots or even use it for storage. This is a great way to enhance your garden style.
Choose Parisian for your garden style If you like the terraces you gaze at in Parisian houses then you can make a similar one. Choose metal furniture and enhance your balcony with plants in bright colors. On many Parisian balconies you will find metal tables in different colors but almost always in a round shape. You may also want to add some grass to your smaller space. Afterall, Parisians love nature and you can make your garden look as beautiful as a chateaux! Take a look at zoysia sod.
If you are looking for something more alternative for your garden style you can turn to oriental decor. Put low furniture and pillows or poufs, add frills around the pillows and place a wooden plate in the middle instead of a table. Enhance the decoration with plants of all shades and add some candles. Deep colors work well for oriental such as deep reds, greens and golds.
If you want a more traditional garden style, then you can play with the raw materials. Wood is one of the typical materials that you should use on a table and chairs, while you can add a stone fireplace or barbecue that will bring in some old and rustic charm. Choose plants that are reminiscent of your country of choice, for Spain and Greece, choose lemons and tangerines. For New England use apple trees and for Norway, how about some pines!
After creating the perfect garden space, make sure you take care of it and clean it often. Check out some good quality garden carts to store your gardening supplies in. Your backyard garden will be beautiful as long as it looks clean and tidy!
Lastly, do not neglect your plants and the surrounding lawn if you have one. Follow some care instructions faithfully and research lawn care trends for an outdoor space you will love!
