Across the length and breadth of the country, people celebrate their own unique personalities and express their character, passions and desires in a multitude of different ways, from tattooing their body to dressing in a particular fashion and style.
If you are someone who prefers to express yourself through how you design and decorate your home and garden, then you have come to the right place because here, for your reading pleasure, is how to make your garden a veritable work of art.
Sculptures & Statues
Nothing says artistic than the addition of one or more tasteful sculptures or statues carefully placed in and around your garden, and if you are feeling particularly daring, you could even choose a sculpture that has a built-in water feature installed as well.
There is a myriad of different styles, colours, themes and sizes of statues and sculptures to choose from, so it is incredibly easy to find the perfect piece of outdoor art that appeals to your personality as well as one that is in keeping with the rest of your garden’s design.
Another multi-faceted component of a garden that is as aesthetically impressive as it is functional is that of a garden pond.
The beauty of adding a pond is that you can choose the shape and style as well as the plants and even the types of fish you choose. Therefore, you can make your pond as arty and striking or as natural and subtle as you wish. If you do decide on the addition of different types of fish, be sure to contact a professional expert in water features and ponds, such as Water-garden.co.uk, who will advise you on the best pond equipment to use.
One of the easier-to-source components that will instantly make your garden feel more like a work of art is that of some waterproof and durable artwork for either the wall of your property or else the exterior sides of your garage, shed or greenhouse.
You can choose a three-dimensional piece in different colours or a more natural and wooden type piece of wall art to blend in with the background.
Pots on the Patio
Naturally, no garden that is being transformed into a mecca of art and tranquillity is complete without carefully chosen plants and beautifully coherent flower colours, which can make the difference between a plain and uninspiring garden and a beautiful natural vista.
Once you have planned, maintained and cultivated your various potted plants, make sure you position them in a way that makes them visible from inside the house as well as from the outside. If you strategically place a large mirror (one that has been specially finished to withstand harsh weather conditions) at the back of your flower display, this will serve to make your garden appear larger and even more decorative.
Those amongst you who are more than adept with a pair of secateurs will absolutely love throwing yourself into a topiary project.
As you will already be aware, topiary is the art of shaping certain types of shrubs into recognisable shapes and styles and is perhaps one of the most extravagant yet effective ideas when wanting to turn your garden into a beautiful work of art.
