Whether small, large, sunny or shady, something beautiful can be made of every garden. You just have to know how and have the desire and time to redesign your own garden. If you are still lacking inspiration, you could try these five ideas for the garden.

Your garden should be a place that invites you to linger. There are numerous outdoor seating options and in the end it is personal taste that decides which of them suits your own garden. A porch swing offers a lot of space and a nice ambience, but this hanging armchair also invites you to relax.

As soon as it gets dark in the evening, beautiful light accents in the garden can create a warm atmosphere. Weatherproof fairy lights are among the classics, but practical solar lights are also suitable for outdoors, such as this solar light in the shape of a crescent moon.

Families with children can use their own garden to play outside and let off steam in the fresh air. A trampoline not only brings the right fun factor, it also promotes physical activity in everyday life. The nice thing is that both the children and the adults in the family enjoy jumping on the trampoline.

Bee populations are becoming smaller and smaller. This is due, among other things, to the dwindling habitat in which they can spread, such as trees, shrubs, perennials and flowers. You can actively contribute to protecting bees, for example with an insect hotel that creates valuable overwintering and nesting opportunities for insects in your garden. Certain flowers also create habitat for bees. You can use these seeds to create a small meadow for bees. This not only helps the bees, but also adds a colorful accent to your garden.

Creating your own fruit and vegetable beds is not difficult and once you have harvested your first harvest, you probably won’t want to stop gardening. If you grow your own food, you get healthy and particularly fresh food from the garden straight to your plate. In addition to classic beds, raised beds are very popular. On the one hand, this is because the fruit and vegetable plants are less exposed to pests because snails only reach the seeds very slowly due to the height of the bed and, on the other hand, because they are easy to manage. Because the raised bed only needs to be refilled with compost or fresh potting soil after five to seven years.
