We all love a secret garden, but you don’t have to have tons of land to create your own secluded space.
Secluded spaces can be perfect for winding away the day with a book or getting away from things for a quick nap. They’re also easy to create, by using a vine covered trellis or hedges that can cordon off a corner of the garden.
Creating a secluded space doesn’t have to cost much and it’s a fun way to add some extra character to your garden.
Without the wildlife, a garden would lose so much of its vibrancy. Too many animals’ natural habitats are disappearing, so making your garden wildlife friendly can help to offer them a safe sanctuary.
When you’re planning your garden, think about the kind of wildlife you’d like to see in it and use different plants to encourage them to visit. Creatures like bees and hedgehogs are struggling in the modern world, but you can help them by providing environments they can thrive in.
Continuing the theme of being wildlife-friendly, organic gardening is set to be a big trend in 2020, helping to make our gardens healthy, planet friendly spaces.
One idea for your garden is creating your own water source by digging a water well. With the right water tanks, you can create a sustainable, healthy source of water straight from your garden.
There are lots of ways you can introduce organic gardening techniques into your gardening in 2020, helping you to encourage the local wildlife into your gardenand grow healthy plants. Organic is a trend in many different areas of life, and it’s no different for gardening in 2020.
Water features are timeless pieces that can add to any garden. There’s just something that draws us to water, and you can easily embrace this by adding a water feature to your garden in 2020.
There are options for all kinds of gardens and budgets, and once again, they can be great for the local wildlife. Just a simple pond can introduce a whole new eco system into your garden and bring all kinds of life.
Whatever water feature you go for, you’re sure to add character to your garden and give it that little bit extra.
