The garden and outdoor spaces of a home are incredibly important but often go overlooked and underutilized. If you have a home with a garden, then take a look at our guide to five luxurious garden upgrades you can make to take your garden to the next level.
Patios and Decking
You can add a lot of style and functionality by adding a patio or some decking to your garden or yard, and give yourself a destination to visit.
The right decking or patio gives you a stable space to enjoy meals and entertain family and friends. Patios or decking give you firm ground to use for garden furniture, giving you the opportunity to add more luxury and decadence with some high-quality chairs, tables, and loungers.
Good fences make good neighbors, so they say, but if you want to give your garden and home a luxury look and feel a new designer fence is exactly what you need.
Mismatched or poorly maintained fencing or fence panels can bring a good garden down and can also lift a dull garden up to a higher level. There are lots of different options when it comes to fences, and you should be able to find a style and design that suits you and your garden’s look. If you have pets then take pet damage into consideration when choosing your fence. Make sure that their claws are not going to ruin your new addition, and that the fence will be effective at keeping them in the yard.
Add a Water Feature
Water features like fountains or ponds are an incredibly classy touch to add to a garden and bring some texture and definition to your outdoor space.
The sound of gently running water can be very relaxing, and the reflection of the sun in the water can cast light over dark corners of the garden, making them more pleasant to look at and be in. They also give you more options for planting, as there are many attractive plants that produce beautiful flowers that need to be planted in standing water to survive.
Landscape With a Theme
Some simple landscaping can give any garden a luxury look, and it doesn’t take a lot of time or money. With the right design for your garden, you can transform your outdoor space into a delightful and decadent destination for your home, and add some value and desirability to your property.
Themed landscaping is a great idea, and by choosing a theme like a classical Italian style garden, or a Hawaiian theme, you can make your garden stand out from the rest and give your whole home’s exterior a brand new look.
Plant Fruit Bearing Trees and Bushes
Nothing is more luxurious than having fruit-bearing bushes and trees in your garden. These are not only colorful additions to your outdoor space, but they also provide fresh fruit for you and your family to enjoy.
Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are easier to grow than you think and make great border plants. Fruit trees like a lemon tree also grow well in most climates and you can make your own completely homemade lemonade with the fruit from your lemon tree.
These five garden upgrades are simple to do and inexpensive, yet they will add a lot of luxury, decadence, and value to your home. Try a few and transform your outdoor space!
