You’ve all read our post on how to get your garden ready for the spring, right? So, now you have a tidy garden. But to help it reach its full potential you need to get creative. We all dream of having a large garden, but that huge expanse of space can be a bit daunting (as well as quite hard work). However, there are lots of things you can do to make use of all those nooks and crannies as well as laying the groundwork for a beautiful yet practical garden area…
Gorgeous Garden Structures
We’re assuming that if you have a large garden, you’re going to have borders and trellising you plan on making good use of. But there are other ways of adding impact to your outdoor space. Harrod Horticultural are a company that specialise in garden structures to help enhance not only your garden visuals, but also your garden productivity. First we’re going to focus on the aesthetics…
These structures provide a base from which you can train flowers to grow around. Much like trellising, but instead of a flat surface, these are three-dimensional structures. So once everything is in bloom, it creates something akin to a floral work of art in your back garden! The classic obelisk shape is perfect for training roses, but you can also buy basket obelisks, drainpipe covers and half-obelisks that you can attach to a wall. One of the best things about these particular garden obelisks is that we currently have an exclusive Garden Selections Voucher Code that gets you 10% off your order – the perfect opportunity to buy a few more to dot around your garden before the flowering season begins.
Working on the same principle but on a slightly larger scale, a garden arch has long been an interesting addition to any garden walkway. But the great thing about shopping with a garden structure specialist is that you get a huge choice of shapes and designs. Pick from the classic Somerset arch, an elegant gothic arch, a square arch or a wall arch that can create a canopy which spreads across from an existing wall.
Gazebos and Pergolas
And they get bigger still. If you’re wondering what the difference between the two is, a pergola acts as an extended arch or tunnelling, covering a large section of a garden path or walkway. Whereas a gazebo can be placed as a centrepiece in your garden, or perhaps at the bottom end where you can create a canopy under which you can sit. These are dramatic statement pieces and can transform a large garden space into something very special indeed.
Grow Your Own
As well as creating an impactful space with stunning florals, garden structures can also be put to a more practical use. Harrod Horticultural have a huge choice of products that can help you maximise your garden so it can produce fruit, vegetables and herbs for you (with a little bit of horticultural help from yourself, of course). Whether you’re after creating a small kitchen garden or devoting your entire patch to an actual vegetable patch, this company will have something to help…
We’re not talking tiny little cages here. Harrod Horticultural’ fruit cages are about serious fruit propagation, and for that sort of thing you need the very best quality structures. Their walk-in fruit cages let you devote a large part of your outdoor space to growing fruit and are available at a few different price points including economy fruit cages that are easy to put together. Other options include domed fruit cages and replacement netting if you require a repair.
If you’re drawing up your plans for your own kitchen garden, a visit to the Harrod Horticultural site can help. Here you can save money on smaller garden accessories and aids such as plant supports, frames, stakes and baskets as well as lots of different sized pots, planters and raised beds.
Once you’ve planned out your large garden patch, worked out what structures and accessories you need, and saved money ordering with one of these Garden Selections Voucher Codes, you can then move on to the next part of the process. Here at My Favourite Voucher Codes, we have plenty more garden savings that can get you money off plants, seeds and bulbs. But don’t leave it too long – now is the perfect time of year to start digging and sowing!
