Whether you have a green thumb or just want to grow something pretty, HGTV Gardens is offering some stellar suggestions from the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show Designers. These savvy ideas can help you turn humdrum gardens into lush spaces to enhance the appearance of your property.
Fountain and Flora
Adding water fixtures bring a sense of relaxation into any garden. Fountains, miniature waterfalls and ponds are just a few ways to add water to your garden areas. Include flowering plants and greenery with a bench to sit down and contemplate life. Water brings a feeling of zen into any outdoor area.
Mix It Up
Often gardeners try to achieve consistency by using the same type of elements in a garden space. The pros at the Chelsea Flower Show prove it can be beautiful to mix it up a bit. Combine modern and classic elements for an eclectic look that is all your own. Dare to be different and experiment in your gardens.
Bring a wild touch into your otherwise sensible gardens with some colorful wildflowers. With little maintenance they can grow tall and lush to fill in sparse garden spaces. They also add an eye-catching burst of color to your garden. Cut a few to place in a vase on your dining room table to bring a garden feeling into your home.
Formal and Informal
Clipped shrubs and hedges give your gardens a well-maintained look as well as add a layer of privacy to your yard. If you want to make them look a little less formal, mix in some herbaceous plants to soften the look.
These are just a few of the fabulous ideas you can get from perusing the photos of the Chelsea Flower Show at the HGTV website. Discover innovative ways to make your garden go from boring to bodacious. A touch of creativity can go a long way.
