When you have a garden you can use it or not and you can also make it look amazing or simply leave it to the wild plants. But it’s a pity to have a piece of land and never use it, especially when you can make it your own “piece of Heaven” with little effort. Here are three ideas of what you can do with little time and effort for decorating your garden and having your own spot where to relax and escape from the daily stress.
1. First you can use natural rocks to make your own “rock garden”. That does not mean that you have to turn your whole garden into a rock arrangement, but you can use a corner where to bring a few natural rocks of different sizes together. And for a better effect you can place some soil in between them and plant some specific garden flowers that like rocky corners. It gives a “mountain” look to your garden and it’s not difficult to get.
2. The second idea is to build a small “waterfall” or at least a small artificial river. It sounds more complicated than it actually is. The most difficult part is to find some flat stones for the “river bed”, but you can build one of cement if you want to. Just make it as natural as possible, arranged in steps and use the water supply in a closed circuit, meaning you will re-use the water falling on the rocks again and again.
3. The last piece of advice – make a birds house from small pieces of board and wood. You can make these bird houses yourself and have fun at the same time together with the whole family, especially the kids who will be glad to help you. And if you offer free food and shelter I am sure the birdies will come visit you soon. Paint these bird houses in nice colours and you will have a new decoration for your garden.
