There’s nothing like the natural beauty and serene atmosphere provided by a patio garden. When you’re tired of being cooped up indoors, you can walk around in the garden to clear your mind and get a breathe of fresh air.
With that said, most homeowners aren’t utilizing their patio garden to their full advantage. If your garden only consists of a couple plants and nothing else, then you’re leaving a lot on the table that could help improve its look and overall effectiveness.
More Isn’t Always Better
Contrary to what some homeowners may believe, adding more plants to your garden isn’t always better. Remember, the more plants you have, the more attention and time you’re going to have spend caring for them.
Think about how much free time you have to spend watering and fertilizing your garden and then decide how many plants you want. The bottom line is that you can still achieve an attractive garden by using just a few strategically-placed plants.
Use Colorful Plants
When choosing plants for your patio garden, go with the more colorful options that stand out with greater visibility; after all, the entire purpose of a patio garden is to create a beautiful atmosphere that’s enjoyable to look at.
For this reason, it’s recommended that you stay away from using all-green plants, as this won’t create the atmosphere you want. Toss in some confetti plants or even colorful rose bushes to spice up the look with some vibrant colors.
While colorful plants are usually recommended, you have to make sure they are suitable for the climate in your region. If you’re new to gardening, don’t be afraid to visit the local nursery and ask one of the employees for help.
Adding an arbor over your patio garden is the perfect way to accentuate the natural beauty of your plants. Whether you want to buy a pre-made arbor or make your own is up to you.
Just place it over or in front of the most visible area of your patio garden. If you leave the center of the arbor open, you can even place a couple of chairs there for you and a guest to sit and relax.
Another advantage to using an arbor in the garden is that you can run vines and plants up the side of it. Depending on which plants you’re trying to grow, it may take several weeks or even months before they begin to travel up the arbor, but once they do, there’s no stopping them.
The look of an arbor with a roses and flowers growing on it is unmatched, so definitely give it a try if you decide on using one.
