Fabulous Ideas for Large Gardens


Few people are lucky enough to own large gardens. Either they are too poor or there isn’t enough space. But when you do have ample space, the question is, what do we do with it? The answer is a whole lot of things. Take a look at the list below for some major inspiration.

Do a Theme Park

Well, not a real one, but landscaping contractors in Hamilton will go crazy with this as they can use their creativity to its maximum potential.

Think about a favourite movie, musical, book, comic or any other work that you are enamoured with and ask the landscape contractors to bring it to life. They will plant trees and bushes and trim it to resemble characters from a show, or they will plant flowers in shapes that draw from the work you’ve selected so that from a distance, it will look like a mega-sized picture. Having a themed garden is a wonderful way in which you can celebrate having a large garden.

Release Your Inner Child

Remember how fun it was to run around in the playground and play on the swing s, the slides and the sandbox? Well, if you have enough space you can recreate that in your garden with adult-sized playground toys that are available for ordering online. There are tall and complicated slides that are tall and broad enough to accommodate an adult; there are swings that have shorter and sturdier ropes of varying lengths for varying heights; instead of a sandbox, you can have a deep, inflatable ball pen and maybe even a bounce house. All of these things will work well in a grassy lawn with sand pathways through it all, connecting each amusement. Just for old times’ sake, install a water fountain where you have to lean over and turn a tap on the side to drink the water.

Imitate Frances Hodgson Burnett

If you’ve ever read the Secret Garden, then you know how cool it is to put yourself in the Lennox children’s shoes as they explore the secret garden and the mysterious mansion they live in. There is an air of mystery and intrigue that pervades the novel, and you can recreate that in a garden by marking plots and beds in a certain way and having walls for plants to climb on; in the midst, if you do it right, you will be able to hide a secret garden walled in by the walls around it, whose door you can hide under some rambling creepers. Properly lock the door to the garden and don’t show everyone who comes to your house. You can use it like a haven or maybe play spy with your children.
