You love your garden and you want to make it a focal point in your landscape. Right now, your beautiful garden seems to blend with the rest of your yard, which takes away from its appeal and makes you wish it had more pizzazz. Here are 3 ways you can improve the visual appeal of your garden and make it the landscape showpiece it deserves to be.
If you have a large garden, a water feature may be what it needs to really stand out. A water fountain that you can plug into an outdoor outlet brings your lovely blooms to life with trickling, gurgling water that dances and flows in a pretty pool. You can also have a water feature custom built right in your garden with a pond at its center for placing decorative fish in.
If you have a smaller garden, then a simple bird bath fountain may be all you need. Whichever type of water feature you decide on, make sure it stands several feet off the ground and is placed where it can easily be seen from the street view of your home so the eye is quickly drawn from the beautiful man-made feature to the beautifully planted garden it rests in.

If your garden rests in the middle of your yard or has no real structure to it, it can be easy to lose its beautiful features in the crowd of your vast landscape. Remedy this by placing a small decorative fence around the entire garden area to give it greater appeal. You can go with a classic white picket fence that is a few feet tall or upgrade to a wrought iron fence with twisting posts for an elegant appeal. You can choose to fence in around a water feature as well if you don't want to place restrictions on your garden but still want to draw the eye to a more streamlined floral bed.
A park bench is a charming addition to any garden and serves a function as well. If you want a quiet place where you can enjoy your garden's beauty and listen to the water tricking from an outdoor fountain or the birds happily chirping away, a garden bench is the place to be. Place the bench along the edge of your garden so it doesn't hide the blooms yet still allows you to have the furniture be a decorative feature in your yard.
