Summers are usually the peak time for colorful yards. Gardeners across the country have spent countless months weeding and cultivating in anticipation of warmer months, and these are the days when the hard work pays off.
A garden in front of the home can add splashes of color to a lawn. After the foundation is laid and flowers are planted, there are many ways to personalize a garden.
In larger areas, paths may add a perimeter to gardens and fruit trees or hedges can offer shade to other flowers. Paths also provide a way to navigate through the flowers, so visitors can enjoy them without damaging the plants.
Decorations such as wheelbarrows and pots can also make a garden more personal, according to TLC.com. These items can be used to fill gaps in fences or as places to display a particular group of flowers.
TLC further advises the use of a traditional garden bench, which can serve as a place to rest and look over the garden and also as another artistic element. An Amish made bench is a great addition to any garden.
Amish handcrafted furniture is expertly built and can be enjoyed for years. Poly lumber benches are particularly suited to gardens, as they are built with no harmful chemicals and are resistant to bugs and the elements.
