Thoughts and musings

Daring to be a bit extraordinary can be highly rewarding, and with these fun features, you can bring life to your otherwise ordinary landscape:
If you want to cultivate a mystical mood in your garden, a moon gate is what you need. No matter what landscape you have, the curved shape of the moon gate will fit harmoniously with it, making entering your garden a transcendental event.
There is no sense in sticking with plain wood when you can have a glossy fire engine red trellis. With that said, make a bold colour selection and watch your garden become more vibrant.
If you are planning to plant beans in your garden, there is no need to keep them along a fence in neat rows; try a bean tepee instead.
If you adore birdbaths, but prefer to keep your feathered friends away from felines, consider a hanging birdbath. The birds will love being out of harm’s way, whilst you’ll appreciate having a visual interest in your garden.
One, or up to four, huge rocks can do wonders and bring life to your landscape. With a single, big rock, you can define a zone, add interest to a grassy area or highlight a favourite spot.
Pain boulders are wonderful on their own, but painted stones are another choice to consider if you want an artful twist.
Bench with a View
Even though having a bench in a garden seems quite ordinary, if you place it parallel to a special view, it can be an extraordinary feature in your landscape.
