Garden Features

Pergola Kits are designed to provide shaded areas for garden seating, hot tubs, picnic tables and more. You can also use pergolas as a trellis for vines and larger shrubs. There are many great designs and styles of pergolas that will allow you to create just the right environment that you want in your garden. Pergola kits are available in fiberglass or wood materials and come in a variety of colors. You can also create the same effect by building a gazebo in your home garden, providing you with an inviting shade area. Gazebos are also available in kit form or prefabricated for easy installation.

You can create inviting pathways through your garden area by using bricks or other garden stones. Using garden stones or other paving bricks gives your garden a natural look while providing access through your garden. You can also line the stone walkways with plants or lighting systems to highlight the look of the pathways.

One of the most soothing features that you can place in your home garden is to add a water feature. Waterfalls and ponds provide a tranquil environment and can be designed with stones or by using pond liners that you can get at your local home improvement store. You can also purchase pump systems that will draw the water from the pond, allowing the water to run down the waterfall feature that you create. Waterfall and pond features are only limited by your imagination and the amount of space you have available in your garden.

Decks are another way to dress up your garden. Deck designs can create impressive features around your home garden, providing you with a space for picnic tables and barbecues as well as Jacuzzis and hot tubs where you can enjoy your garden space. There are many different materials that you can use for decking, including redwood and pressure treated woods as well as new composite materials that are already stained and sealed, giving you a maintenance-free deck.

Other garden features include statues that you can place throughout the garden and planters that allow you to create raised or terraced bedding. Planters are especially helpful if your home garden is set on a hillside. They allow you to terrace the planters without having to do a lot of landscaping. You can also decorate your garden with hedges, providing privacy to your landscaping as well as creating secluded grottos, trellises and walls to add more privacy.

Benefit of Garden Features

Using new features in your garden can change a boring garden space into an intimate setting where you can relax and enjoy a good book or entertain friends in a serene location. Improving the look of your home garden with new features can offer you a great place to spend some time after a hard day at work or just a place where you can get away for a while.  

If you need help in designing new features in your home garden, there are many landscape architects and landscape designers that can help you create a special environment in your garden that will give you the peaceful setting you desire.
