Unusual Gardens not only provide the neighborhood with plenty to think about, they also offer you one of the best opportunities to express yourself to the neighborhood. And usually, they relish it. Think about it – don’t you just adore to see an extraordinary backyard?
You can usually develop a fairly good idea of someone’s character simply by looking at their gardening ideas. It can reveal whether they are outgoing with plants and color blooming all around or if they prefer instead a more organized and ordered attitude to life.
A very ordinary backyard does not express very much about the person. But an extraordinary backyard can reveal many different sides of the character. So have courage, express yourself!
Designing and planting your backyard gives you the chance to choose the colors and plants that make you feel good. You can choose to include flowers that have scents that you enjoy or that bring back memories of places that you once visited.
Just like your clothing, your garden plan will change along with the changing seasons. Even though plants do this with or without you, you have a lot of control. You can design your landscape to enliven a gray time of year, or to add shade and repose in a hot summer. Including colored pots and sculptures can transform a winter garden and bring contrast to the more colorful seasons.
You may want to alter the character of the backyard as you go through changes in your life so that one year is always different than another or you may decide to have it all remain the same, the way that an old tree lives on from one year to another.
Often, a more quiet person will probably dress in a standard way, but they find they can be much more flashy in their backyard so they have unusual gardens. Having your backyard get a lot of attention is not the same as receiving a lot of attention for yourself. Give it a try – a lot of people discover that it feels great to have a backyard that the neighborhood is discussing!
A garden can alter your mood for the better and cause you to feel good just being there. It can make you appreciate that the important things in life are the little things that are in front of us all of the time. A garden is a mass of life and it will always help anybody who is thankful for the beauty of that life.
It is not surprising that so many of us love to garden. The natural beauty of a garden demonstrates the perfection of nature and inspires joy in everyone. Doesn’t that just make you want to go out right now and design one of the most flamboyant and unusual gardens in your neighborhood?
