Those who have just completed any garden renovation or small project will know that the work doesn’t end as soon as you put down the shovel. Whether you’ve gone for whole new garden design, or just updated small areas of your garden, it can be really common for your garden to just not feel quite finished. This is normally down to the lack of finishing touches.
You should look at your garden in the same way as you would with the interior. It’s not likely that you would decorate your living room or bedroom without adding finishing touches such as new curtains, a rug and some throw pillows so why wouldn’t you add finishing touches to your garden space too? The finishing touches are what add your personality to the project and are what make it feel complete to you.
Follow A Colour Scheme
Much like with the interior of your home, it’s a good idea and a reasonable one to add in a colour scheme when dealing with an outdoor project. You’ve probably never thought about having a scheme for your outside space but have a think about any picturesque scenes you’ve seen and the one thing they have in common is that they follow a certain set of colours. You can use anything from plant pots, flowers, furniture through to walkways and parasols.
If you're planning on using your garden in the evening then it wouldn’t be complete without some sort of lighting. Let's face it, there’s always going to be at least one time you sit out late and enjoy your outside space late into the evening so why not do it with a beautifully-lit atmosphere. Think about the areas that you want to add lighting and you will create a wonderful feature, you can try strategically placing lights to create a showcase piece, light up walkways and draw your eye towards certain areas.
Adding accessories is one of the easiest ways that you can add colour, personality and texture to a garden space. You can add anything from fence trellis, plant pots, bird feeders, ornaments, water features, edging and gravelled areas. It’s a good idea to look for items that complement your garden’s style and the feel that you want for example adding Rockery Stone to a water feature area or showcase plant will add the texture and personality you're after.
Fences are clearly practical and are essential for most gardens. You should make sure you have a good quality fencing that you’re maintaining on a yearly basis. It’s recommended that you’re treating it annually in order to keep it look it's best and last for a decent amount of time. There is an abundance of different styles and designs that will complement any garden. You can even use fencing as a way to section off different areas of your garden such as a vegetable patch or hiding workspaces.
