My clients, family, and friends are always interested in what fresh ideas I, as a landscape architect, have for them that will add something new to their outdoor spaces yet not empty their bank accounts! Here are my favorite 11 ideas for 2011. Enjoy!
#11 A Pond in a Pot!
No garden is too small for a water feature in a pot.
#10 Cracked Stone Pathways
Re-cycle old stone or broken concrete to create a new pathway.
#9 Mirrors in Your Garden
Mirrors, like water, reflect light around the garden and add a bit of mystery.
#8 Start a Kitchen Herb Garden
Save money and enjoy fresh herbs right outside your kitchen door!
#7 Paint a Wall!
In a day or a weekend you can transform, unify or accent with color that’s not living.
#6 Add a Fountain in One Hour!
Portable spill way fountains make it possible for everyone to enjoy the sound of water in their garden.
#5 Turn Night into Day
Don’t limit your enjoyment of your outdoor spaces to the day time hours only!
#4 Succulents are No Longer a Wall Flower!
Explore the hundreds of succulent varieties that can add new life and interest to your garden.
#3 Enjoy a Meadow Instead of a Lawn
A fresh new look that reduces your water bill, attracts wildlife and reduces your green footprint.
#2 Create “A Secret Retreat”
A secret retreat gives you a private place to relax and enjoy all of your beautiful plants!
