Cottage Gardens are the Trend: How to Get One a Your House

Do you want beautiful outdoor areas for your home? With a county garden, you can achieve a really attractive and serene look, while increasing the value of your home. A natural look hardly needing any trim, country gardens feature a bunch of flowers and shrubs that require little maintenance.  We talked to some of the experts and here is what they suggested for a stunning country garden.

Climbing roses and vines are the key elements

Got a love for this amazing red flower? Climbing greens are a must have feature for any country garden. Grow one in your garden but plant species that can climb your walls or wrap around the porch columns. Plant them near the doorway, and they will create a beautiful arch. The same goes for vines.

Line up the path with flowers

Every garden has a path that leads to a porch. Adorn it with beautiful flowers of all colors and shades; the resultant look is like the ones you see in movies. Just make sure that whichever flowers you are planting, they should be easy to maintain. We highly recommend daylilies, roses, fleabane, clematis and hydrangeas. Which ones of these are your favorites? We think you should plant them all to get that fairy tale, magical look.

One more thing: cover your path with stones of irregular shapes and sizes if you want a traditional, country look.

Container gardening for the extra speck of creativity

Do you like gardening? Ever tried doing this in containers? Also known as organic gardening, container gardening elements give a garden a fun, vintage look.  The best part is you can use your creativity and plan out your garden in any way you want. Stack up some potted plants in a wheelbarrow or use an old bicycle basket as a container. Try this out and not only will you be making your garden more beautiful, you will be developing a great pastime as well.

Get some shade for those hot summer days

Add some arbors and pergolas for a magical, enchanting place. With some, green, twisty vines, you can create a shady spot.  When the temperatures soar, you can rest in this shade, which will still be cool and comfortable.
