4 Ways To “Fake” A Great Garden

4 Ways To Fake A Great Garden

Sometimes you don’t have room for a large garden, or you just can’t afford the upkeep. Gardens can be tough to maintain, so when you find a hack that will make your gardening life a bit easier, why not consider them! Here are a few ways you can “fake” a great garden, without too much hassle or cash!

Fake It ‘Til You Make It

If your backyard is too small or it’s paved, chances are you don’t have much grass around. Grass is a lovely way to “fake” a garden. It adds the illusion of fresh and well-groomed outdoor spaces, but sometimes you just can’t make the room for it. Grass is also can be a pain to keep under management, as it grows back the second you mow it! Artificial grass is a great alternative to real grass, and with the latest technology, synthetic grass doesn’t even look fake anymore! You can set it and forget it with synthetic grass, and give off the illusion of a garden. Win!

The Only Way Is Up

If you live in an apartment and you really don’t have room for a garden, you should consider going vertical. Vertical gardens are a beautiful alternative to a regular garden, and they take half the upkeep! You can Grab an old ladder and stack small, colourful pots on each rung, filling them with flowers. You can even fill the pots with veggies and herbs and make a mini veggie patch! Vertical gardens are basically living walls, and you can make them any way you want to!

Who Knows What’s In Store….

If you’ve got a extra space but your backyard is a real mess, you should consider to get a garden shed. Not only do they store away all of your items, they also give off the illusion of a well-groomed garden. You can choose depending on the size of your garden or aesthetic. They’re a win-win essential item to have in your backyard.

Foreshortening Is In Your Future

Scattering pots of different sizes can give off the illusion that your garden is large and in charge. If you place larger pot plants behind smaller ones, it can make your guests think that the garden is bigger than it really is. Foreshortening is a hugely convincing mind trick, as it gives off the illusion of a larger space, or a 3D space. This trick is done in art, which alludes to a three dimensional space, and you can do it with your garden!

If your garden is lacking a bit of green or it’s too small for a Versailles-inspired design, you can experiment with different sized pots and and come up with something out of the box and maybe up the wall. You can easily “fake” a garden, all it takes is some illusion and clever planning.
