If you have ever dreamt of making an intriguing and magical garden for your home, why put it off? Waste no time in making your fantasy a reality. Anything you’ve dreamt about, even from childhood, is acceptable in a garden, where people can really let their imaginations run wild.
For example, if you have ever dreamt of getting, or making, a sundial, now is the time to do it. In a garden shop you will find plenty of different kinds of sundials, or if you really want to be different, you can Google instructions on making your own sundial and create it from large rocks and perhaps even tall potted plants – the sky is the limit, literally!
A garden clock is another way to make your garden different, because most people don’t think of having an actual functional clock in their garden. They may at best have a terracotta sun clock on their patio, but chances are it’s not really made for outdoors and either the battery is dead or nobody ever got round to setting it, so it’s just for decoration – but make your garden that one bit more interesting by having a real garden clock.
Ever thought of having a fountain, but thought that it may be too much upkeep? Well, gone are the days where you have to haul buckets of yucky water out of fountains where the water has gone bad, or you need to scrub hard concrete from summertime algae or install intricate piping. These days, you can go to a store and buy a simple-to-install-and-run fountain that basically works out-of-the-box. You won’t need to do anything fancy to install a new style garden fountain these days, unless you deliberately go out of your way to get an awkward or complicated model.
Finally, consider getting a gazing ball. Never heard of that? Well, they’re shiny balls, made of shiny rock or metal, which reflect the sun’s shine or the moon’s glow, and give your garden a magical and other-worldly feel. Your outdoor space will surely be interesting and unique if you place a beautiful gazing ball somewhere in your garden.
There are many ways that you can add interest to your garden decor and make it the unique and magical place you’ve always dreamt about enjoying right outside your own home. All you need is a little bit of imagination!
