As warmer weather and longer days head our way we can anticipate more time relaxing in our New England gardens. To fully enjoy your space, give special attention to your garden design this season with new features that nurture the natural beauty of the outdoors.
A fountain is a classic and serene focal point for your garden that creates soothing sound, attracts birds, and invites relaxation. The possibilities are limitless, including simple vessels, architectural designs, tiered fountains and wall fountains, all of which can be combined with small pools and other water elements. Materials from marble or granite to ceramics or metals all contribute a distinct character.
Adding an artistic sculpture to your garden is a wonderful way to retain a focal point in any season. Sculptures create a lovely, unexpected interplay with light and shadow. Consider how the sculpture looks from every angle and how its form relates to the garden layout. The best design is one that integrates with the style of your home and garden while also standing alone as a work of art.
Well-placed benches are essential for fully appreciating your amazing garden features. Seating should be placed in the driest spots of your garden, on a pathway or patio surface for stability and durability, preferably in a spot with some shade for the hottest days.
