During my first few months of creating an astounding, self-sustaining, and creative vegetable garden, I focused on researching the outs and ins of planting vegetables. You are most probably brought here because you’re researching when and how to plant every vegetable you are planning to grow in your backyard.
It can be a thousand tomato varieties or a bunch of onions. Also, you might want to know about the difference between newly sprouting vegetables and weeds. Familiarizing with these important gardening details will keep you busy and productive for the first few months of gardening.
As soon as you finally settle into that hobby, it is high time to dive deep into the beauty of its art. With my experience in gardening, I believe that gardens aren’t meant to be totally utilitarian at all (can be, but not necessarily). You do not have to dismiss your garden’s potential just because it does not sustain your daily needs.
Some people see their gardens as a consistent provider for their food ingredients. However, they soon abandon it when it no longer plays the exact role they expected it to play. Well, that’s not how things are supposed to work. You may actually upgrade that “source of ingredient” into a piece of art. Simply put, it can be a masterpiece!
Here are creative and unique ideas to make your garden the centerpiece of your landscape.
1. Create an Attractive Template
You don’t have to make raised lumber beds. Instead, you can start with organizing your garden’s structure and adding some eye-catching features. You may create paths covered with pebbles or beds fenced by polished woods. Paths and beds are backbones that make your overall design look neat.
2. Make Your Garden an Outlet for Creative Expression
Your garden can be an outlet for creative expression. Use it to bring out your creativity and personality. Mix and match your favorite colors, add some detailed features such as ceramics, tile mosaics, sculptures, and metal art.
3. Use Flowers to Add Color
Flowers are a great way to break the monotonous green color of a vegetable garden. Try adding in annual flowers at the end of your garden beds to catch people’s eyes.
