Contemporary Planters For Upcoming Spring – When it comes to prepping your home for the arrival of spring, certain aspects cannot and should not be neglected and out of all the possible preparations existing none is as important as tending to the garden and any type of outdoor patio or balcony you might own.
Having a stunning and flourishing garden is the first sign of the coming of spring, the revival of nature and the beauty of emerging from anything long winter. But none of these feelings could be evoked in the absence of the most spectacular plants and flowers, growing and blooming in a continuous spectacle of life, much to the delight of guests visiting the house or the very residents of the property.
Pergola: A Beautiful Addition To Your Garden – Pergolas are a type of gazebo that are very common in outdoor spaces. They can provide a little shade, and a lot of beauty. They can also be attached to houses to create a fluid outdoor area, or they can be detached and free standing. No matter what type of pergola you have, here are some ways to turn it into a beautiful addition to your garden.
Lights. Lighting your pergola with strings of lights is a guaranteed way to make it a breathtaking, romantic space. Most people use white strands of lights or twinkle-lights, but the options are as wide as your imagination! You can use lights with curtains or drapes to create a private atmosphere great for any occasion.
Creating A Zen Garden – Life in our era is down right brutal. With phone calls left and right, deadlines piling up the desk and errands here and there, how will one be able to find the time to take it easy? No one has the time to go on a vacation all the time, let alone afford it. There is a quick fix to this problem. Create a Zen garden in your backyard.
There are just a few simple basic components in making a Zen garden. There are a number of easy and convenient steps to start making your desperately needed oasis. A Zen garden features all the four elements: fire, water, earth and air. It’s understood that you only have to worry about the first two. Fire can be an outdoor fire place or even as simple as firing up a couple of wood pieces. Fire can also be represented by the color red. You can put red pillows, seat covers, outdoor drapes, rugs, etc. to best represent this element. Water on the other hand should be in the state of running water. The sound of running water has been proven to calm the nerves so this makes it a must have. A fountain can be used to rectify this effect.
Garden Decks And Steps – A deck provides a perfect means of extending your house into the garden and giving you the opportunity to enjoy an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. By linking the house with the garden, your deck becomes an additional outdoor entertaining and leisure area. Ground-level and raised decks can be built to suit your site and connect with pathway, garden, carport and patio.
As decks are load-bearing and exposed to the elements, careful thought needs to be given to the selection of timber for the bearers and joists, as well as for the decking itself.
Artificial Effects In The Garden – The range of materials that can be used in a garden includes the old and the new. Both can be used in all kinds of ways, and they must either merge with and enhance the existing look, being dictated by the planting scheme and atmosphere, or wittily stand out, catching visitors by surprise.
The best gardens have a touch of both, using a wide range, from stone, shells and water to concrete, metal, plastic, stained glass, colored pebbles, ornamental tiles, paint, wood, artificial lighting and slide projectors. In short, anything goes, but only if it looks good.
How To Grow Lilies? – Lilies are both beautiful and easy to grow. As long as you provide them with good soil and enough sun, they will reward you for years, producing larger clumps and more flowers every season. It is not too late to plant some of the summer-flowering lilies and you will be happy you did when they start blooming in August.
There are three quite distinct classes of flowering lilies. They are divided according to color range, period of bloom, hardiness, and orientation of the flowers. The different classes can be combined in the same bed, but it is a good idea to know what you have in order to do this effectively.
