Spring has sprung and with that the ritual cleaning and tidying of the home is done. With summer well and truly here, most of us now turn our attention to the garden. After all, this is the space in which most of our summer memories are made. The summer is the time for lazy Sundays spent sipping iced tea in the garden while our kids play. It’s the time for barbecues and garden parties where we sip white wine in the amber glow of the setting sun. It’s a time when we get to relax and unwind at the end of a hard day’s work and sip our morning coffee amidst the gentle breeze and sunshine surrounded by the natural perfumes of our own personal slice of the great outdoors. But if your garden is looking worse for wear, lacklustre or just a little boring, now may be the perfect time to pursue the statement piece that will make it pop!
Statement Pieces To Give Your Garden The Wow Factor
Whether you’re looking for a talking point for party guests, something to breathe new life into your garden, something to help guests feel more at home or simply something to help you feel a little more relaxed and at peace in your outdoor space, you can find what you’re looking for in the following…
A Water Feature
A water feature makes for a wonderful talking point and a soothing statement piece. Sitting by your water feature after a stressful day is a great way to feel all your worries melt away… Although spending too much time near it will make you need to pee! A millstone makes a great basis for a water feature with a single elegant cone of water emanating from the epicentre. You can even add some colored LEDs to make the feature sparkle in the evening.
There’s something about the raw power of the elements that keeps us coming back time after time, century after century… But if harnessing water doesn’t do it for you, how about harnessing fire? A firepit lends a certain romanticism to your garden and serves as a great focal point to gather around with friends or snuggle up with your significant other to wine and talk into the small hours.
Any one of these pieces is guaranteed to bring your garden personality and make a bold statement while providing some wow factor for your guests.
