Garden Decorating With Garden Accents

Garden Decorating With Garden Accents

Decorating your garden with the correct choice of garden décor can change an average garden into a fabulous one. There are many garden accents available online today, and rather than just clutter their yard or garden up with disconnected ‘ornaments’, many decide to use a theme.

Whether that is an oriental theme, a natural one or you have had your children in mind, when decorating your garden you may wish to include a number of functional items. Items such as garden stools, clocks, thermometers, plant stands and composters might appear mundane, but they can also make a significant contribution to your garden décor. Here are some items that would not be out of place in any garden, irrespective of what other garden accents have been used.

There are various techniques for interior garden design, from simply hanging baskets with plants to the mounting of frames on the wall where plants are embedded. Installation of a vertical garden is convenient and cost-effective, but aside from these advantages, your home will also transform into a more unique and interesting living space.


A vertical garden, also called the green wall’, can be customized according to your preferences and personality. To give your backyard or indoor garden the splendor of flowing water and to add chic, then you can add a fountain. And with our modern technology, one can select from a wide range of elegant designs that can complement the setting of your garden.

Carpets Of Colors In Winter Garden

The best way to make sure that the winter garden looks good is to work in layers from the bottom up. Start off with small plants that hug the ground, then make sure you have interesting shapes in beds and borders over the winter months, before moving on to topiary, trees, conifers, and artificial shapes.

Winter bulbs. Many people think that the only bulbs worth planting are those that flower in spring, yet there are some sensational ones for the winter. These will brighten up a woodland garden or a patch of ground beneath a deciduous tree. This is an ideal place for planting because the bare branches mean that bright light reaches the ground in winter, when the bulbs need it most.

Creating A Beautiful Winter Garden

Creating A Beautiful Winter Garden

Winter gardens can be extraordinarily beautiful. They may lack colorful beds and borders, but they often have a subtler, more satisfying attraction. There is, of course, no lack of color if you look closely. Many trees and shrubs bear vivid red, yellow or orange berries, and there are plenty of bulbs that flower in depths of winter.

Evergreen plants and conifers provide form and texture in every shade of green. It is in winter, however, that the underlying structure of the garden can be appreciated. Unclothed pergolas and trellises can be admired, while ornaments, such as terracotta urns and stone sundials, can be enjoyed for themselves.

Gardening Jobs In The Late Fall

Gardening Jobs In The Late Fall

A last-minute spurt of action is often needed at this time of year, to get the garden ready for winter and ensure protection for plants that need it. In many areas the cold will already have taken its grip, but in warmer climates there are still mild days to be enjoyed.

Besides tackling the many jobs described here, the fall is also a good time of year to think of redesigning the garden. While most plants are dormant you can put up pergolas and arches, build walls, design new beds, lay paths (avoiding areas where they will get covered by leaves which become mushy and slippery in wet weather) and dig ponds. It is better that new ponds are left to be filled by rainwater over winter, thus avoiding the chemicals in tap water, which can lead to the growth of quick-spreading algae.

Grow Basil Indoors During The Winter

Grow Basil Indoors During The Winter

Many persons hold out for the weather to become warmer prior to planting their vegetable garden. Nonetheless, there are a number of dedicated individuals who will be starting their herb gardens indoors this year. One consideration that must be made, when choosing what herbs to plant, is to be aware of which herbs grow effectively indoors. One good choice is basil.

Only a few herbs can be cultivated with success inside. This is generally either on account that there is not an adequate amount of light or the indoor temperature is not suitable for that specific plant. Basil is a great choice since it is fairly flexible when it comes to sunshine. It may not perform as well inside as outdoors but it is possible to grow.
