More than Just Plants: Garden Care for All Corners of Your Yard

More than Just Plants: Garden Care for All Corners of Your Yard
Your garden is most likely your pride and joy of your front, back or side yard. It may be the
centerpiece, the first thing neighbors notice, or the patch of land that ties the whole house
together. Although making sure the flowers are watered, the soil is moist and the plants are
flourishing is very important when it comes to your garden care, you also need to think about
what the rest of your yard is doing to your garden. Proper garden care is not just about plants;
it’s about finding that Feng Sui, that harmonious balance in your outdoor area.
Your Garden Theme
The first thing to consider when it comes to your garden and surrounding area is a theme. Of
course, a theme is not critical to any garden but it can be a fun way to tie in your furniture, your
outdoor decor and your garden plant choices.
For example, if you have a garden with a lot of blues, green and purples, then perhaps a tropical
themed outdoor area would be fun. Try funky Chinese lanterns as lighting and look for warm
greens and blues for your outdoor furniture. Lanterns and candles can really brighten up your
garden area and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Add to the tropical feel with
festive fruity colored drinks, Hawaiian print table clothes or a flower pattern picnic table set. All
of a sudden your garden is much more than just a Mecca of beautiful flowers; it is a backyard
holiday dream.
Another great way to spruce up your garden is to add other elements besides just plants. Check
out your local garden center for goofy little critters or beautiful Greek statues. A few happy little
frog statues in the garden can give your backyard a fun look. Greek statues or beautiful flowing
fountains can create a more whimsical romantic atmosphere.
