The garden has always been a symbol of beauty, and in the midst of the chaos of life, we hope to find a place of stability and beauty for ourselves through our gardens. More and more people are beginning to pay attention to the design and lifestyle of their gardens.
Before designing a garden, it is important to be clear about who the users of the garden will be, which may be yourself and your family, or your neighbours or friends.
A garden is made for people and plants, therefore the layout of the garden space should cater for both people and plants.
The following 13 tips for garden renovation will help you to gain a better understanding of what to do with your garden.
1. Consider privacy
Whether you are hosting a party or enjoying personal time in the garden for reading, you probably don’t want strangers to disturb you. Planting vines, shrubs or small trees in key places to block the view can make a big difference in just one or two places when creating privacy in a garden.
Keep your outdoor living space close to where you spend most of your time, for example if you want a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or practice yoga for a while, then set up a platform next to your bedroom outside.
3. The solution to slopes
It’s always more interesting to have layers than flat levels, so build a multi-step terrace and make the most of the hard-to-mow slopes. The high and low level planting areas are an unexpected benefit to the garden.
4. Add containers
The easiest way to add interest to your yard is to use one or two garden containers and choose plants and pots that fit the space and suit your personal taste. This beautiful plant features beautiful foliage that will stay in good condition from spring to autumn.
5. Incorporating landscape features
A single fixed tree taking up a significant part of the yard makes the surrounding design tricky, but this is not a problem as the curved steps around the sides allow the tree to take the lead.
6. Adding vibrancy
Plants between the flagstones set the scene for a vintage style in the yard. Treat it with brick paving by placing the bricks casually and then, in the gaps, planting low-growing perennials.
7. Add comfortable furniture
It’s not easy to have the most beautiful yard in the world without spending time on it. Choosing some comfortable and suitable outdoor furniture can go a long way to help you create a garden atmosphere.
8. Stick to one style
Note that a Victorian container with a lightly coloured tablecloth, for example, is a remarkable way to make a yard beautiful with small details like this.
9. Add a focal point
A warm fireplace is an ideal focal point and meeting place, serving to add privacy without being particularly sophisticated – a small tree or large shrub, a huge container or even a group of garden statues can all serve the same purpose.
10. Maximise space
No matter the size of your yard, accents can be emphasised in simple ways. A stone ledge, for example, is the perfect place to set candles to create a warm, cosy feeling, and a dramatic gold clock can provide a strong contrast to it.
11. Choose your favourite colour
Choose the colours that appeal to you most to ensure the yard suits your personal taste.
In an era of marketing, it is easy to build a yard, and creative customisation can give it more character. In addition to customised containers and other specialty items.
13. Create a garden according to function
Each family has its own needs and can create a garden with different functions according to their needs, the following are some practical suggestions for you.
- Courtyard lounge area
The lounge area is one of the essential functional areas of the courtyard and is arguably one of the most important areas of the courtyard. It is where the owner relaxes, drinks, reads and gossips. This is why the atmosphere in the courtyard lounge is usually relaxed and gives a sense of ease. The garden is a relaxed area with a relaxed feel.
- Courtyard meeting area
The meeting area is similar to the lounge area, but is a little more formal than the lounge area. The choice of furniture is also different from that of the lounge area, which is usually furnished with casual seating, while the meeting area tends to be more formal with a combination of sofas, and is also more functional than the lounge area.
- Courtyard dining area
The dining area is also a must-have feature of the courtyard, with candlelit dinners at night and outdoor barbecues during the day. Who can resist the charm of an outdoor dining area?
- Courtyard pool area
The pool area is a very attractive courtyard feature, but it is also the “most expensive” courtyard feature.
As well as occupying a large area of the courtyard, its use is short-lived due to the weather. However, this does not prevent people from wanting to use the pool area. The pool area is combined with a dining and relaxation area
- Children’s area in the courtyard
The children’s area is a must for families with young children.
As young children, they will be riding bicycles or climbing on climbing frames in the garden and will need an environment where they can get close to nature and explore it. They also need a safe place to play outdoors, and a patio space can be just the thing.
- Courtyard planting areas
As the home’s connection to nature, how can a patio be without greenery?
Regardless of the size of the garden, there should be a planting area.
Large yards can have a separate planting area, a small garden or a flower garden, while smaller yards can have wood beds and planters to create a garden planting area.
