Landscaping and landscape design serve the purpose of trying to beautify the area that surrounds us. However, it is not always affordable for people to do this to their gardens.
In today’s world, most people live in apartments or flats, and do not have the place or the resources to maintain huge gardens. As these are an essential requirement for any elaborate landscape design, they opt out of it.
For people who would like to make their small outdoor gardens or even kitchen gardens more attractive, many simple Do-It-Yourself projects exist, that require very little effort to implement. Here are some of them:
Lavender lines paths are one option to consider. These flowers are indestructible, and add a wonderful fragrance to gardens.
Climbing Vines are easy to maintain and good to look at. Drape these vines on front gates or at the edges of windows. This immediately gives the home a more fresh and natural look. Maintain a tiny kitchen garden and line it with whatever edible herbs used on a regular basis. This adds a little bit of greenery to a home, and provides fresh herbs to add to meals in a minute’s notice!
Some homes have small gardens with little space to move around them. A chair and a small table added to such areas can do wonders to its ambience. It also forms the perfect place to relax after a long day at work or enjoy pleasant mornings.
Pot hangers are another popular idea for homes that have a deficit of ground space. Each pot could have a different flower in it and they can create a very picturesque ambience at any place!
