Most people that are engaged in doing up their gardens tend to use pots as well as tubs at ground level in order to decorate their gardens. However, to add another dimension to the garden, why not consider hanging garden décor in the form of hanging baskets that help to add charm to the garden and to also make a noticeable difference to the appearance of the garden.
Hanging Garden Décor – Hang From A Pergola
One of the best places to affect hanging garden décor is to hang the baskets from the cross-beams of pergolas that of course must be strong enough to bear the weight of the hanging baskets. Another way of adding to the hanging garden décor is by constructing a series of uprights as well as cross beams in the shape of the letter L and use this construction to hang the baskets from.
With the help of hanging baskets you can create an interesting scenario that will please the eyes, especially when the rest of the garden seems to be very flat. You need to simply add a number of hanging baskets that you can then place at varying levels so that there is a random pattern created that will prove to be the eye-catching feature of the garden during the summer months. And, during winter you can plant pansies as well as evergreens as too dwarf conifers that will ensure that the hanging garden décor suits every weather condition.
It is also possible to vary the hanging garden décor by using wall brackets from which to hang the baskets, which can prove to be an especially striking addition when used in the vicinity of the porch and balcony. Fortunately, there is a lot of variety when it comes to choosing your hanging baskets and you can in fact, easily opt for simple wired meshes or go for plastic pots or even pots made from clay.
Once you have decided on using hanging baskets for your hanging garden décor, you will then need to address the issue of planting the baskets. You need to also ensure that the plants are positioned in the proper manner, especially in basket’s top portion and you can also think about having some of the plants poke out of the sides of the basket.
The bottom line with proper hanging garden décor is that you can experiment and mix and match various different types of hanging baskets and bells as well as bird baths to create a more stunning garden.
