When the discussion of a luxurious garden space occurs, we may often find ourselves inclined to picture pristine lawns and abundant greenery. However, as trends develop, this vision becomes ever more outdated. Garden decadence can take a variety of forms and is, importantly, no longer associated with an expensive price tag or demanding upkeep. In fact, a luxurious garden can even be created on a budget.
Home design tastes may differ but there are certain trends that, with growing popularity, are likely to be appealing to many and, following the shared experience of a health crisis, gardens are receiving much more attention too. As such, even for those with relatively small garden spaces or modest budgets, there’s significant potential for a home’s outdoor area to be turned into a rich asset with a wealth of value.
The upkeep of a garden, much like a home, can be tiresome. Thankfully, there are a number of ways in which they can be automated. Sprinkler systems are certainly one option, keeping lawns and plants thriving, but they can be expensive. As an alternative, however, there are steady plant feeders that will ensure your plant’s soil is regularly watered, without fear of excess.
Grass can also be tended to with robotic mowers that are similar to the automatic vacuums we use indoors, removing the need to tend to grass, even running entirely on solar power.
It is now the local, ecologic, and handmade wares that demonstrate luxury and taste, since they are design considerations that require customers to do more than defer to the window of their local furniture store. As such, for luxurious garden designs, it is the artisan designs, those that integrate into natural surroundings with exposed woods and confidently wear the imperfection of handcrafted design that enrichen a garden with unique charm.
To source such items does not necessarily require a greater cost but simply demands more time, time that is to be spent searching for local craftspeople and designers, as well as those working to restore and upcycle previously loved furniture into new, unique pieces.
Having one’s own cabin has often been a sign of luxury and now it is one that can be more easily afforded and attained within a garden space. Log cabins and other outbuildings are appearing more often as homeowners discover their potential utility. These rooms can be easily transformed into amazing spaces, whether to be used for social gatherings, relaxation, or as a private office for one’s professional endeavours. Their design and size also varies greatly meaning that not only will there be options for your garden’s design but also for your intended use too.
Being able to comfortably host dinners in your garden or enjoy an outdoor space as one would a restaurant requires a certain amount of design consideration and investment, making it a luxurious feature to a home. Aside from comfortable and practical dining furniture, one must also consider deterring potentially pesky weather elements and creating a sense of privacy too.
