#2 Cover Up An Unpleasant Sight

If you have an eyesore in your garden that you want to get rid off, but it’s too big of a job to tear down completely, consider landscaping as an easier alternative at covering up the things you don’t like the look of.

For example, if you have an item of furniture or something along those lines, you can cover up any table legs or something you would like people not to see with flowers or shrubs.

#3 Staging

A lot of people’s gardens are all one level and have no alteration of levels, for an original twist to your garden take it up a level and plant mounds of soil to slowly create a centre stage.

Choose how you decorate your stage, use a water feature as a centrepiece or decorate it with a table and chairs so that you and your friends or family are centre stage during your meet ups or evening dinners.

Team your stage platform with tall shoots or plants to provide the illusion of extra height.

#4 Enter Your Garden In Style

When you first enter your garden is the bets part, it’s what guests first see, and if your entrance is stylish, then they’re going to guarantee that the rest of your garden is styled beautifully.

Don’t ruin your gate with an old trodden muddy pathway or an old broken gate with tall shoots of overgrown grass; an arch is the perfect item of furniture to welcome your guests into your garden.

Lace your arch with bright flowers and team with a patio for the perfect evening setting.
