Unique Features to Introduce to Your Garden *

It doesn’t matter how big or small the space you have maybe, having a garden is always a wonderful feature to have. There are lots of great things that you can do to make your garden a space for you to enjoy, especially when it comes to incorporating your own personal style into the design. With unique features to bring the garden to life, you can transform the space you have and really put your own stamp on it.
















One of the most popular things to introduce to the garden today is a pergola. Pergolas are striking metal, or wooden, structures that add a warm and welcoming feel to the garden. Ideal for crawling plants or positioning a cute little bench underneath, your pergola is guaranteed to bring a touch of character to the area. If you’re unsure on where your pergola would look best, you can always get some advice from your local garden centre to find out where they are best positioned.

If you’re looking for a really fun way to use a pergola, then look for a rotating and sliding waterproof Louvered Roof Pergola. These allow you to let the sunshine but be covered should you then want to be shielded from the rain; genius idea!

Maybe if a full pergola is a little too much, or you don’t have space for it, you could try looking at azek arbors. An arbor looks a lot like an archway that can be covered with flowers, vines or even have a gate instead.

Creative Cold Frames
Having a creative passion project is always something you should pursue, especially if that passion relates to gardening. Being creative in the garden has so many amazing opportunities, from growing some exotic plants, to creating an aesthetically pleasing feature that you can proudly say you accomplished all by yourself. For those who find growing plants a thrilling hobby, then investing in a cold frame is just what you need to do. It’s not always possible to have your very own flower patch in the garden to grow your plants in, but having a cold frame gives you more flexibility and possibility to grow some beautiful flowers.

Aesthetically Pleasing Arbours
Not only do arbours creating a stunning focal point within the garden, but they are ideal for adding some essential seating to the area too. There are lots of different ways in which you can incorporate an arbour into the garden, from neat, compact designs in the corner of the garden, to bold, striking designs that take pride of place under a gorgeous oak tree. Arbours have covered seating that provides you with the perfect spot to go and read a good book, enjoy the peacefulness of your garden and even do some work or have a quick coffee. They give you the opportunity to make the most of the space you have in your garden, so they’re very beneficial to have.

Mysterious Mirrors
To many people, mirrors are only made for the interiors of your home, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Whilst it’s easier to keep your mirrors clean and safe indoors, having one in the garden can really transform the space. Mirrors are designed to reflect things, and the moment you introduce one to a colourful area of the garden, you’ll be able to completely switch up the aesthetic of the garden and create a bright, bold space. You’ll also find that mirrors are perfect for helping to make the garden feel larger and roomier than it actually may be, which is always a huge bonus.
