Bring Your Garden To Life!

Dream Doors Bring Life to Your Garden

Springtime is the time of growth and signals the departure from the cold, barren days of winter. When better to update your garden game?

Whether its small or large, altering even a single aspect of your garden can make the world of difference.

There are a lot of options when it comes to your green space. Do you want to focus on plants? Perhaps add some furniture? Or attract some much-needed wildlife?

Mix up your lighting

Lighting can make all the difference, often completely changing the atmosphere of an area.

This of course also applies to the garden. Lighting can transform your plain garden into a magical space at night, making it the perfect place to spend time with family and friends. Plus, having a nicely lit garden can help during those horrible winter months.

Make use of dead logs

If you’re trying to attract some wildlife into certain parts of your garden, consider using a couple of old dead logs. This makes your home more inviting and can attract animals, such as frogs.

Plus, piling the logs up will give your garden an almost rustic, natural feel. If you’re someone that is always pining for adventure in the wilderness, then this is the attraction for you!

Install a water feature

You don’t see these often in gardens, but they are noticeable. Adding a water feature, whether it be simple or extravagant, is a low maintenance way of attracting more wildlife and keeping your garden cool over summer. Plus, the running water can be relaxing and help you wind down on those stressful days.

There are many options here, you could opt for a fountain coming out of a statue or just a simple urn, whatever suits your needs.

Feed the birds

Adding a bird feeder can add movement and colourful interest into your dull garden. You can buy a bird feeder or create one yourself. Simply add the feed you want to give to those hungry nippers, sit back, and enjoy. Don’t forget to provide them with water too!

The attraction can also double up as an interesting subject for anyone interested in photography. You should be able to, with enough caution, get close to the birds without disturbing them. Especially if you place the feeder right outside your window.

Contrast your plants

That’s right, use a myriad of different plant types to spruce up your garden. You may think all the diversity would look chaotic but in actual fact it makes the garden seem more bright, colourful and adventurous.

If you stick to a single species or style (such as a fuzzy or jagged look) then your garden can seem bland and thoughtless. Put wildly different plants next to each other and watch the effect it creates.

Remember to consider colour differences!

Start up-cycling

Dream Doors Garden Upcycle

Make the most out of all your old and unwanted materials. Re-purpose and upgrade old pieces of furniture into something completely new and unique! Get creative and customise to your hearts content, then place it in your garden.

This gives your garden a more personal feel and is guaranteed to create good memories in the process! Remember you can use anything: old pots, planters, benches, etc. Think outside the box!
