Garden decor

There are many ways to turn your cot­tage into a fairy tale. Mod­ern gar­den decor is pro­duced both with var­i­ous crafts and with the help of exclu­sive plants that can impress oth­ers. The main thing is that this process is very excit­ing and makes you fan­ta­size, makes it pos­si­ble to imple­ment unusu­al solu­tions, awak­en­ing hid­den poten­tial in a per­son.

Garden decor items

  1. Wood gar­den decor. In this sec­tion, we decid­ed to men­tion not liv­ing flow­er­ing plants, but, it would seem, already used mate­r­i­al in the form of trunks and stumps, which most often goes into the fur­nace. It turns out that unusu­al­ly shaped branch­es or snags are quite well suit­ed for dec­o­ra­tion. It is worth a lit­tle con­ju­ra­tion over them, cut­ting some­thing, treat­ing it with paint, var­nish or stain, and soon an orig­i­nal sculp­ture appears on your site that can sur­prise your neigh­bors.
  2. Stone gar­den decor. Nat­ur­al gran­ite, mar­ble or sand­stone is now a mate­r­i­al not avail­able to every­one, espe­cial­ly if there is no work­ing quar­ry or deposit near­by. But even a few small blocks can be used with imag­i­na­tion, cre­at­ing an unusu­al com­po­si­tion. If funds do not con­strain you, then it is gen­er­al­ly easy to make fairy-tale cas­tles or an unusu­al land­scape in the style of Nar­nia or The Lord of the Rings from stone.
  3. Gar­den bot­tle decor. Our crafts­men have been using PVC bot­tles for a long time to dec­o­rate the site and to dec­o­rate paths in the gar­den. There are a lot of ideas on how to turn a sim­ple plas­tic con­tain­er into an unusu­al dec­o­ra­tion. For exam­ple, blue or blue bot­toms lined up in a row can cre­ate the illu­sion of a water sur­face, and bright caps are suit­able as petals of a mag­i­cal plant. Often, sim­ple flower pots are made from them, cre­at­ing unusu­al flower beds, or fig­ures of var­i­ous ani­mals.
  4. Decor in the form of a fig­urine for the gar­den. Such dec­o­ra­tions, espe­cial­ly in vin­tage style, have always been pop­u­lar with sum­mer res­i­dents. If you do not have spe­cial tal­ents or are a busy per­son, then buy­ing ready-made fig­urines in the store is not a prob­lem. But you can make the orig­i­nal decor of the gar­den from impro­vised mate­ri­als, using a used tire or any suit­able snag to cre­ate a wind­mill, gob­lin, gnome, croc­o­dile or oth­er crea­ture.
  5. Decor in the form of bright and unusu­al plants for the gar­den. For sum­mer cot­tages, both ever­greens and decid­u­ous shrubs and trees are suit­able. Some will please the hosts with a dec­o­ra­tive view in the warm sea­son, oth­ers will add unusu­al col­ors to the land­scape in win­ter. Of course, cli­mat­ic fea­tures and soil com­po­si­tion should be tak­en into account. By the way, it is not nec­es­sary to pur­chase expen­sive exotics — plants that grow in our area, after the orig­i­nal trim­ming, are also able to effec­tive­ly dec­o­rate the gar­den.
