No garden is complete without a garden structure or two! Garden structures come in the form of pergolas, water fountains, arbors and more! It’s easy to make any yard look magazine ready with a few garden structures. Next year is going to be the year of the garden structure! Expect to see structures big and small make massive statements in the yards around your neighborhood and incorporate them in your own yard whenever you can! Here are a few garden ideas to get you started:
Outfit your garden with a structure straight out of a fairytale! Arbors are a wonderful way to add extra appeal to garden pathways and entryways. They even look beautiful surrounding your favorite garden bench. Grow climbing roses and trim regularly so they grow in the direction of your choosing. Think of how gorgeous it will look when the flowers bloom!
Take a look at this brand-new take on a pergola! This genius gardener transformed the top of their pergola with a layer of greenery. Perfect for those of us who didn’t want to give up any gardening space to fit a pergola in our yard space. Grow plants or veggies that need tons of sun up here and make sure that you create some sort of irrigation system should your plants need more than rainwater.
I simply adore garden structures that are versatile AND functional! Incorporate a garden shed or a “She Shed” in your backyard garden for an extra living (or storage) space out in your yard. Check out this article of mine for more information on how to build your own DIY garden shed. They’re all relatively easy to tackle on your own and there’s a style perfect for everyone’s tastes!
If you have a water feature in your yard, a bridge is just the missing accessory that you’ve always needed! But it doesn’t just look great over a small creek, bridges can be used to fill in any holes in your dry landscape design.
