You are not alone, as many homeowners with gardens find it hard to maintain them so they don’t look like unruly fields.
The funny thing is, many people think it is much harder than it actually is. There are some simple changes and easy to follow steps that could really give your garden the neat, tidy and elegance you are after.
Group Thematically Connected Plants Together
Bring order to the chaos grouping together plants that are connected by themes. The key is to ensure each plant group has a unique identity from the others and that there is nothing that shouldn’t be there.
Not only is this an extremely effective way to make your garden look neater and tidier, it will make it look as if you have spent more time than you actually have working on it.
Use Containers and Hangers Creatively
A very quick and easy way to add a dash of distinctive class and sophistication to your garden is by using containers and hanging baskets creatively. They can help add extra dimensions and life, along with a dazzling array of colors.
What’s more, there is an almost limitless variety of options for potting plants and flowers in interesting ways.
Add Some Texture With Gravel
Another way to give your garden an extra bit of class is by using gravel or other decorative garden stones to add texture. Variety, as they say, is the spice of life and by having the gravel contrast with the more naturally smooth elements, it will really make them stand out.
Don’t Clutter Your Garden
One thing you will want to avoid in your garden is clutter. A garden and outdoor area that’s cluttered can feel oppressive and messy.
Therefore, cut back on the stuff you have lying around. Restore order and make sure that everything you have in your garden is there for a reason.
Create a Singular Focal Point
Adding one singular focal point that the rest of the garden provides a backdrop for is an effective way to give it a classy sophistication. It means there is a central point to focus on in your garden and gives the impression it has been meticulously planned.
Whether you choose an exotic plant, a fruit tree, koi pond with water feature or an interesting sculpture, it is really down to your own personal taste. You could start from the central point and work outwards to build up the surroundings so they really let the focal point shine.
As you can see, it may only take a few small and well-thought-out alterations and additions to give your garden that classic elegance you desire. The key is not to ignore even the smallest details, because they are what can elevate a plain and tidy garden that’s a bit drab into a beautiful and stylish escape from the modern world.
