Decorative Garden Bridge, Garden Gnomes, and Scarecrow Sprinklers – Add Personality to Your Garden!
Now that you’ve planned your garden whether it’s a vegetable garden, fruit garden, and/or flower garden, it’s time to think about choosing a few garden decorations and making sure you have your garden accessories lined up. It’s just so much easier to have everything you need at the beginning and makes starting a garden go so much smoother.
I recently came across some oh so cute garden decorations that I am seriously thinking about ordering! There are certain garden decorations that are so adorable –
I can hardly resist ;). One of them is this beautiful decorative garden bridge. A little wooden garden bridge just adds so much to the looks and personality of a garden.
And then there is the garden Gnome…what’s a garden without a gnome to look over it?! I just love this cute little Sleeping Garden Gnome! But there are a lot of these 2 particular garden decorations to choose from. I think I’ve been looking through them for at least a couple hours now – so I decided I would just see if anyone is out there and could help me decide which one to get :).
Oh! And there’s also this adorable Contech Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler! Ha! Just what I need to keep my curious and mischievous dogs out of the garden. 😉
Something else you may want to consider for your garden is garden borders and edging. A garden border is a great way to separate your garden from its surroundings and of course can dress it up a bit too. There are tons of garden borders and edgings to choose from. There is everything from the plain black ones, to the fancy decorative garden borders that look like little fences (like the one above). Of course, there are the ones that are stone that are gorgeous too. Most people use the stone garden border for flower gardens. It really decorates a flower garden nicely.
Some garden accessories that are handy to have when starting your garden are things like the correct type of fertilizer, extra bags of soil (if the soil in your garden is hard and you know that it is lacking in minerals), metal mesh or poles to use for support if you are going to be growing any plants that may require support while growing (like tomatoes), and of course the garden tools that you’ll need to tend to your garden to keep it in good shape while it’s growing. Before buying the fertilizer, soil, or tools, make sure you have done your research so you’ll know what types will be most helpful to you and will benefit the growth of the plants you chose for your garden.
These are just a few garden tips that will hopefully help you to get your garden planning underway and to have things organized and ready for planting day. It isn’t a complete list by any means.
